The Cupertino major is said to launch three iPhones like previous year.

Ever since the existence of iPhones, no model ever saw a provision for two SIM cards and now that it is expected to house it, it's garnering a lot of hypes. Over the past few months, the company has started building the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s locally in India. But now, a report claims that Apple the 2018 iPhone series will actually be the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS and the iPhone 9.

Apart from the names, the image posted by the Les Numeriques also reveals the full design of the upcoming iPhones along with some features. It will sport an LCD display, a glass back, and a single camera setup at the back. Additionally, the company is also asking stores to increase their weekly iPhone sales target to around 40-50 iPhones a week.

Israel signals any truce with Hamas to be limited in scope
As part of the negotiations, several exiled Hamas leaders have entered Gaza for high-level internal consultations. Hamas and other resistance groups have linked their fate to Israel freeing Palestinian security detainees.

Sticking to a single lens camera rather than upping the stakes to a dual-lens camera like on the current iPhone X is another way of potentially keeping costs down for this model. The video reiterates all that is known already and we can see that the display notch is on all three devices. Basically, as per the report, the company is making four iPhones and the budget variant has been divided in two trims among which only one sports the dual-SIM card slot.

The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone seems to have much thicker bezels than the OLED models, albeit with an edge to edge display and Face ID, that replaces the physical home button.

As for the pricing, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that the iPhone 9 will come with a price tag between $600 -700 - which is roughly around Rs 41,000 - 48,000. However, with budget Android smartphones improving dramatically with every passing iteration, Indian consumers now tend to prefer buying a budget smartphone from Xiaomi, Samsung or Honor instead of an outdated 2-year-old iPhone which lacks many Indian centric features.
