Apple Accidentally Leaks Plans for New iPhone X in iOS 12 Beta

Apple iPhone 9 with the 6.1-inch LCD variant has leaked once again in a new live image, which shows the back of the phone with the single-rear camera.

Thanks to the latest iOS 12 Beta release, screenshots on how the new landscape mode will work with supported apps are now out in the open. We are, however, yet to know the megapixel count of the camera.

What's claimed to be the new iPhone X has been shown off in a photo displaying the handset from the rear, on slashleaks.

The flash on the rear panel is, according to the leak, a dual-tone LED flash. The Apple iPhone 9 is speculated to come with a 6.1-inch LCD display and a 5.2-inch OLED display in a separate model, and now, we see that the rear camera, as well as the front one, will be single-sensor units. From the back, the iPhone 9 looks a lot like the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. However, we can not verify the reliability of any unauthorized leaks or rumors unless this information is provided directly by the brands themselves. It will run the iOS 11 and have the A11 octa-core chipset powering it.

We also know pretty much all there is to know about the overall size and shape of those devices; an iPhone X replacement, an iPhone X with an LCD display and potentially dual SIM card slots, and a larger iPhone X Plus.

The Apple iPhone 9 is expected to launch at Rs 74,999 in India, but since there are a couple of variants, we will have to wait for some hints or some more leaks to have more confidence about the pricing of the Apple iPhone 9 in India. That should help make it more affordable than the multi-lens higher end 2018 iPhone X style phones.

If you're wondering why on earth anyone would need a dual SIM phone, then you're probably not the customer Apple will be targeting with the update. While the notch display that was launched with the iPhone X was its most distinctive feature past year, many Android phones, including the OnePlus 6 have already aped the notch with Huawei P20 even making the feature optional.
