A case render for an unnamed phone from Apple has been leaked. The render gives away the design of what could be the largest iPhone ever made. It was previously predicted that Apple would introduce three new iPhones this year by September, based on data from a KGI Securities note. This latest leak seems to confirm one of these, with a peek at its design elements.
The renders suggest that the new Apple iPhone device will share design similarities with the iPhone X. There is a big edge-to-edge screen at the front with a noticeable notch. The display is likely going to be about 6.5 inches across, but it loses out on the home button, suggesting the phone will be unlocked through face unlock feature only.
GizmoChina, which first reported about the leaked images from Sanfeng, a China-based case manufacturing company, referred to the device as the ‘iPhone 9 Plus’. The case image places the power key on the right edge, whereas the left edge has ring/silent switch and the volume controller. There also seems to be a vertically positioned dual-rear camera system in place.
An earlier report by KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo estimated the launch of three iPhones, which were to include two lower-priced models: one dual SIM and one single SIM variant. It was also mentioned that the cheaper model would sport an LCD screen as opposed to the OLED display seen on the iPhone X. It is expected to come at an affordable price point with a 6.1-inch display and a single camera setup on the back.
