According to previous hearsay, many people have already known that this year's new iPhone will probably include three models, including iPhone X successors, the enlarged iPhone X Plus and LCD iPhone. Among them, iPhone X Plus is said to be using a 6.5 inch OLED display panel. Now there is news from Forbes that iPhone X Plus is expected to have a very big upgrade in terms of camera function and performance besides the larger screen.
A few days ago, Forbes's editor, Gordon Kelly, suddenly announced some new iPhone design sketches, calling this sketch mainly from Ghostek, an accessory manufacturer. Through the sketch, the editor believes that the iPhone X Plus model fuselage back camera has a special design, and is likely to be equipped with three cameras, similar to the HUAWEI's strongest flagship P20 Pro, and once again, it will be possible to shock the smartphone world again.
Gordon Kelly says that the lens in the middle is less like a flash because the flash is not necessary to open a hole that is as big as a lens, and the flash is expected to appear on the right side of the three cameras. The editor, however, did not talk about other useful details, including whether the three cameras were determined, and the specifications and features of the sensors were unknowns.
Gordon Kelly claims that some of the advantages of three to iPhone will be similar to HUAWEI P20 Pro, for example, to help better lossless focus, as well as a powerful low light night shooting effect, etc. With no surprise, the iPhone with three cameras can help users create their own 3D content in addition to the improvement of camera imaging performance. Perhaps the later iOS 12, close to the formal version, may contain code that supports these functions.
Again, the rumor about the three camera iPhone is not one or two, but any rumor and leak can be a sign or trend, suggesting that the three camera iPhone may really be possible, but time is more likely to be next year than this year. As for functions and uses, it is clear that according to Apple's software direction, it is bound to take an important step forward in AR augmented reality and 3D sensing technology.
In addition, the iPhone X Plus sketch information provided by Gordon Kelly also shows that the size of the iPhone X Plus is almost the same as that of the iPhone 8 Plus, measuring about 156.9 × 76.9 mm in length and width, compared with 158.4 × 77.9 mm before the iPhone 8 Plus. So the iPhone X Plus is a little more compact, and the high screen percentage will almost be designed to be very similar to the iPhone X, with "bangs" on the top, facial ID features, and no home keys and fingerprint recognition.
According to the previous news, the new generation of iPhone will soon enter the mass production phase in 2018, in which the new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus on the OLED screen are expected to start from July, and the new 6.1 inch LCD iPhone model is expected to be produced by a month later, with an analysis of the LCD version of the new iPhone. The time of delivery is also delayed by one month.
Finally, Gordon Kelly also released a 6.1 inch iPhone X design sketch. He said that the so-called "mini iPhone X" in the early rumors did not exist, but there was a "cheap version of iPhone", a widely spread 6.1 inch iPhone, which could be simply called "iPhone" in the future.
As the sketch shows, the 6.1-inch iPhone model is slightly larger than the current 5.8-inch iPhone X. The measurements showed that the length and width of the 6.1-inch version was 147.12 × 71.52mm, while the length and width of the cash iPhone X was 143.6 × 70.9mm. It is also certain that the model has no jaw, should support facial ID, and only uses a "single camera" design, and whether there is a 3D Touch is not yet visible.
