Apple is just two days away from rolling out its newest iPhone series with the company holding an event on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. Although the release date of all the three iPhones has been announced, there still seems to be some confusion over the official name of the smartphones, especially the last one. But no more, as thanks to leak of iOS 11 firmware, the names of all three iPhones have been leaked. iOS developer Steve Troughton-Smith took to Twitter and revealed that the three iPhones from Apple will be called iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. He also believes that the phone code-named D22 will be called the iPhone X, which is expected to be the bezel-less smartphone.
However, this is not the first time that such rumours have done the rounds. Earlier, a site LetsGoDigital claimed to have received a picture of iPhone X retail box from Dutch telecom provider KPN, reported Indian Express. However, the image was later removed from the site. Interestingly, a couple of names for the high-end flagship phone have been floating around the internet comprising of iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone Edition and iPhone Pro.

Talking of the specifications of iPhone 8, the Apple smartphone will feature a 4.7-inch display, reported IE. Meanwhile, Apple iPhone 8 Plus is said to be an improved version of the iPhone 7 Plus, added the report.
Concentrating on the much-awaited iPhone X which has received all the fans attention will be completely different from the iPhone 7 series. The Apple flagship smartphone will sport an all-new design, a new OLED screen, facial recognition, no home button, advanced dual-camera setup and improved augmented reality capabilities, as per IE report. This model could be expensive, as it may be priced upwards of $1000 (or approx Rs 65,000) for the base variant.
Sales of the new iPhones are expected to begin on September 22, one week after Apple starts taking pre-orders on September 15. The tech giant is also expected to launch a new Watch with LTE capabilities and a 4K Apple TV.
