Apple is working on three iPhone models including a new iPhone X Plus, iPhone X and lower-priced 6.1-inch iPhone model later this year, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
According to a report by a MacRumors, which obtained a copy of each research note, the Cupertino-based giant is planning to introduce a cheaper iPhone with LCD display. The new 6.1-inch iPhone will be manufactured by Pegatron, Foxconn and Wistron, while Japan Display will supply around 70 percent of LCD panels for the latest iPhone.
The upcoming iPhone will feature a bezel-less design with no home button, which we have seen in iPhone X. The latest iPhone will also come with TrueDepth sensors for facial recognition and 3D sensing for Face ID and Animoji. The device will feature a rectangular-shaped, one-cell battery with 2,850-2950 mAh power, which is up to 8.5 percent larger than current iPhone X. However, it might lack 3D touch and there would be a single camera along with 3GB of RAM. The phone is reported to be announced between $700 and $800 in the US.
Coming to the next-generation of iPhone X and iPhone X Plus, Kuo says that both the iPhones will come loaded with a 4GB of RAM. The iPhone X Plus will bear a 6.5-inch display and it is reported to feature a 25 percent larger battery capacity of 3,300-3,400mAh as compared to current iPhone X. The next-gen iPhone X and iPhone X Plus will come loaded with two-cell, L-shaped battery.

Meanwhile, Apple is also reported to be working on the successor of the iPhone SE. According to reports, the successor of iPhone SE is indeed in works. The so-called iPhone SE2, Digitimes claimed, will be produced in the second quarter of this year. It will have a glass back similar to that of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the report claimed.
DigiTimes, quoting sources, said that the iPhone SE2 won’t have the 3D depth sensing Face ID feature though. It said that while it will be mass produced in the second quarter, the iPhone SE2 will be available for purchase by May or June next year.
