iPhone X Plus display panel leaks, test production ongoing

The screen resolution of iPhone X Plus may be 2688 x 1242 pixels.

Several sources have reported that Cupertino-based giant will unleash three new smartphones in 2018, among them an upscaled version of the iPhone X. The so-called iPhone X Plus will feature a 6.5 inch OLED display, and according to Bloomberg, its screen resolution will be 2688 x 1242 pixels. A leaker from China posted a photo of the alleged display panel, which will be manufactured by LG.

It has the same cutouts with the notch at the top, but in a bigger size. The source reveals that a test production of the phone and its components is already ongoing, and the prototype has the codename D33. The current 5.8-inch iPhone had the codename D32, and a similar pixel density.

In addition to the Plus model, Apple is said to be working on a hardware refresh of the original iPhone X from late 2017, and a brand new model with a 6.1 inch LCD display. The latter will have a cheaper price, although it will have the same design notch with Face ID as the iPhone X, possibly attracting those customers on a budget. However, the low-cost model may not have the best-in-class processor, and some other disadvantages, in order to push the price further down.

We also learn that Apple is likely to offer dual-SIM functionality in the larger iPhone X, as carriers are still reluctant to support E-SIM with the ability to switch between multiple networks.
