Apple apparently couldn’t hold onto its biggest secret of this year. Images of the company’s much-awaited 2018 iPhone models, aka iPhone XS, have surfaced online, offering the first look at two of the upcoming flagship smartphones.
The leaked images belong to the new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone XS models, according to 9to5Mac, which first obtained the images.
Apple will hold a special event on September 12 where it is expected to introduce three new iPhones, including the much-awaited iPhone XS models and a low-cost 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD display. The event will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino, California.
Rumours are rife that the OLED iPhone XS models will be available in gold colour for the first time. Apple offers the existing iPhone X only in silver and space gray colour variants.
It’s worth mentioning here that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in April revealed images of a gold iPhone X. The device, however, never made it to the stores.
“Other details are still to be determined, but we can report with certainty that iPhone XS will be the name, the OLED model will come in two sizes including a larger version, and each will be offered in gold for the first time,” the 9to5Mac report said.
With the iPhone X, Apple added quite a few exciting features to its smartphone lineup. Features like an edge-to-edge display with slim bezels, Face ID, TrueDepth camera system and advanced AR capabilities redefined the company’s iconic handset.
It will be interesting to see what the Cupertino-based tech giant has in store for consumers this year. With the rise of Chinese smartphone manufacturers like Xiaomi, the global smartphone market is getting highly competitive. Apple definitely knows it.
