The design of the highly anticipated iPhone has leaked. It will be a “low-cost” version of the iPhone X and is scheduled for release anytime this year.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman – one of the industry’s most respected Apple insiders has corrected a story by 9 to5Mac to confirm Apple is indeed making a radical new design – codenamed the ‘N84’.
According to Gurman Apple will fit the new phone with an LCD display rather than OLED to reduce costs and he maintains his original sources claims from February that it will have an aluminium chassis (the iPhone X uses steel) and a glass back for wireless charging.
“I also know this model will use a single rear camera rather than dual modules, but the bezel-less display, notch and Face ID technology,” he said.
there has been a split between claims Apple is manufacturing only a new iPhone X and larger iPhone X Plus with a second generation (and visually identical) iPhone SE 2 arriving in June.
