Apple said to plan giant 6.5-inch iPhone, lower-priced model

Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

Last September Apple announced the iPhone X which was the successor to the iPhone 7 series.

Apple launched the 10th anniversary iPhone X at its September event previous year, billing it as the 'future of the smartphone'.

Similar to the Plus releases of past years, the iPhone X is reportedly getting a size upgrade with a screen that could measure up to 6.5 inches - a 0.7 inch difference from the current iPhone X's 5.8 inches. The display size of iPhone X SE will be 6.1-inch that will roll out somewhere between iPhone X next generation and iPhone X Plus launch. This model will also include Face ID.

Both the larger iPhone and the refreshed iPhone X are expected to use Apple's next-gen A12 processors and will include stainless-steel edges. Apple only sells the premium flagship in Silver and Space Gray, while the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus both have Gold in addition to the other two colors. However, Apple needs to be a little more careful with the pricing strategy they adopt for the cheaper variants.

Church of the Holy Sepulcher closes in protest of new policies
I would not allow that the residents of Jerusalem would close this debt, " Barkat said as cited by the Jerusalem Post . But the Church remained closed as pilgrims from throughout the world approached to find the doors bolted closed.

According to the report, Apple is targeting business users with the massive phablet-style device that'd likely be more of a rival to the Note 9 than the Galaxy S9.

Apple's widely reported plan to create separate larger, faster, and cheaper versions of the iPhone X became clearer today thanks to a report from Bloomberg. Apple apparently planned to release a gold iPhone X a year ago but canceled it due to production issues. Looks like now Apple will also include that color option in upcoming iPhones. The new lower-cost model will feature the same edge-to-edge screen as the iPhone X as well as Face ID instead of a fingerprint sensor. Speaking SIM, eSIM technology is also another possibility but it might not go through due to some carriers not supporting the idea. But he doesn't think it will have a measurable impact on demand because many consumers will want the bigger model. Despite the bigger screen, the body of the device is said to be similar to the size of the iPhone 8 Plus.

But now it's been claimed the next iPhone could be even bigger than any Apple handset that has gone before.

Apple is also expected to release an LCD iPhone with slim bezels, aluminum edges, and a glass back.
