Apple already have a new phone in the works.
According to a report from 9To5Mac, Apple is planning on dropping a follow-up to the wildly successful device at some point this year, with improvements coming to key areas of the software’s interface and an even larger screen on the horizon as well.
tech giant “will continue to improve Face ID technology, screen to body ratio, etc., moreover, the company plans to increase the memory content and embed AMOLED display in two of its models.” That idea of screen to body ratio is key here, with rumblings of a boost in size building since before Christmas of 2017. Though older intel described the shift as one that would go from a 5.8 inches display (which is what the current iPhone X has) to a significantly larger 6.1 inches display, Forbes is now saying that the rumored iPhone X Plus’ screen size could swell up to 6.2 inches or 6.3 inches.
It’s worth noting that the iPhone SE might also be in line for a screen size increase as a part of an overall tinkering plan, but the focus really is on the iPhone X and being able to bring a next generation model to market as soon as possible, in order to capitalize on the device’s popularity.
