iPhone 11, iPhone XI, or whatever the name of Apple’s next ultimate flagship smarphone would be, it will definitely be the beginning of something new. With Apple’s annual launch season approaching, excitement among iPhone lovers is certainly at its peak.
While the Android market is rapidly increasing due to extended progress in camera functionalities and other fronts, the substantial question is that will Apple be taking an emerging technology like AI or AR to turn it into an amazing feature for the new iPhone 2018. Although, it will be too early to state the official specifications, but there have been theoretical reports & news which point to the possible attributes of new iPhone 11.
Based on several reports & news articles, we’ve accumulated all the certainties right here:
iPhone 11 Release Date & Launch
Apple has not made any official statement regarding new iPhone launch. But looking at the trend of announcing its major iPhones at September event, we can expect the iPhone 11 to surface sometime around the first week of September this year.
Though the iPhone X’s launch was an exception to this pattern as it came in November, so it’s unclear if Apple will stick to a September launch or not. Still if we chase the trend, we’d guess around 11 September 2018.
iPhone X Plus or iPhone XI or iPhone X2?
Several analysts have predicted that the new iPhone will predominantly continue with the “X” name. This is because XI branding would make a lot of sense as it would be pronounced iPhone 11, just as iPhone X is expressed as iPhone 10.
Few reports claim that Apple will release three new iPhones this September & none of them will use Touch ID instead it will have Face ID for authentication.
Some Invest Analysts predicted that the new iPhone 11 will definitely A pricier iPhone which will cost $1,100 that is about $100 over the iPhone X’s starting $999 price tag.
iPhone Other Attributes
Based on various rumors, the new iPhone 2018 will also house an L-shaped battery leading to increase the battery life by around 25 percent (3,300-3,400mAh), with wireless charging simply because its predecessor also debuted with the same feature.
Another rumor around the iPhone launch talks that it could come with 5G support, following in the footsteps of the iPhone 3G, which launched 3G and iPhone 5 which drove 4G in the market.

1. Design & Display
Every rumor has its equal and opposite rumor. But the three models have been predicted are some big design changes, which will retain the stainless-steel frame but will offer improvements for cellular and Wi-Fi transmissions.
The new range of iPhones will consist a refreshed iPhone X which will come in 6.5-inch OLED display (Organic Light Emitting Diodes), alongside another in 5.8-inch OLED model and the third one will be a cheaper iPhone that combines the iPhone X’s slim-bezels with older iPhones’ LCD display with a 6.1-inch display.
One of the new models of 2018 iPhone could have a rear-facing camera with triple-lens array which could enhance iPhone’s rear zoom capacity and will eventually improve the picture quality in dim lighting. Though new Huawei’s P20 Pro is already equipped with rear-facing camera with triple-lens array, we could expect the same or more augmentation in new iPhone models.
A11 Bionic chip with 64 Bit architecture, and M11 motion coprocessor have been common with most iPhone models. But with every annual launch, Apple brings a new chip so we are likely to expect an A11X processor or an A12 Chip or whatever Apple will decide to call it.
Current storage with iPhone models are 64GB and 256 GB, so we are guessing the same storage capacity will be implied in new iPhone 2018 models, because to be honest no one is certainly expecting lower than 64 GB.
According to other predictions, all the new iPhone 2018 models will support gigabit LTE data transmission speeds and 4×4 MIMO standards, that means faster speed and the potential of improved coverage.
Nevertheless, there’s no doubt in the performance issues. Also, the rumor about launching new models without a headphone jack can be true, so you can expect a lightning port only for both charging and listening to music.
This is what we are absolutely sure about, unless Apple decides to dramatically shift its strategy till the launch. We might not assure you about the specifications & other internal features, but we do know that the iPhone launch will bring iOS 12 with it & which we will see at the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference in June 2018.
We won’t commit about the credibility of details & features iPhone 2018 brought in the form of news & rumors, until any official statement comes from Apple. Till then you have to keep your excitement & expectations under control when you read about the rumors & leaks, as predictions cannot always turn out to be true.
