The smartphones are expected to have a 5.8-inch screen size, another one is likely to have 6.1-inch and third one is going to be a huge 6.5 inch model. After the leaked images of 6.1-inch variant iPhone, the 6.5 variant images are available now. Now only the 5.8 variant is left for a glance.

As for the leaked 6.5-inch model, that one is reportedly coming with an OLED panel and would start a new iPhone X Plus lineup of some kind. The metal frame notch design comes with a nearly bezel-less display and dual camera setup on the bach, which is vertically-stacked, reported.

Like the camera of the current iPhone X has a bulge, the 6.5 camera modules are also bulging, but just a little. The notch houses sensors of Face ID, earpiece, front-facing shooter. The dimensions reported are 157.5×77.4×7.7 mm.

The designs reportedly have a small change compared to the current iPhone X, probably with the 19.5:9 aspect ratio with aluminium side frame and glass on the front and back.

According to, the budget variant, 6.1-inch model, has one camera and IPS LCD, other two models would come with OLED panels.

The Bell, a Korean media outlet, claimed that 6.1 variant will be delayed by two months due to some technical difficulties and mass production is yet to take place.
