Among the three rumoured iPhone handsets, the one with the 6.1-inch LCD screen is being talked about more. However, it turns out that might not be the case after all. Talking about specification, the iPhone XC will come with a 6.1-inch LCD display, Apple A12 SoC and 3GB of RAM. Rumours suggest that a third new handset, whose name remains is unknown, will employ a 6.1in LCD display and aim for a lower price point than the OLED iPhone XS. The 6.5-inch model will reportedly be called the iPhone XS Max, as Apple drops the "Plus" moniker from the devices.
Alongside the iPhone X, Apple announced a wireless charging pad that can charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods at the same time - something that's not now possible with wireless chargers based on the Qi standard. As much as Apple wants to keep things secretly, leaks after leaks, we might have known how much the next set of high-tech smartphones priced in the market.
