Apple will launch three new iPhones this year as well

The official Apple event is getting closer and, as is the way, the rumour mill is going into overdrive as we draw nearer to the reveal.

Technology Sector giant Apple (Apple) is launching its Next Generation iPhone on September 12. With an expected price of between $700-800, the new iPhone will likely be more attractive to consumers who were turned off by the iPhone X's $1,000 price tag and held off on upgrading.

The slide claims that Apple will announce three new iPhones on September 12 - a 5.8-inch iPhone XS, a 6.5-inch iPhone XS Plus and a 6.1-inch iPhone XC.

Adding to the pool of revelations, a cheaper variant of the upcoming iPhone XS, called iPhone XC, has also been recently spotted online. And Italy tends to be among the first wave of countries to get the new iPhones when Apple unveils new devices.

The two OLED phones will come in different sizes - 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch - and will have the same almost full-screen display and facial recognition camera as the iPhone X. The current and updated iPhone X that is set to be unveiled September 12 boast OLED screens, but if you're looking to save money, but still retain numerous features of the iPhone X, the cheaper version may be something to consider if you're looking for a worthy upgrade. Today's point of interest is the name of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone which everyone has been referring to as the iPhone 9.

These model names are a bit more in line with Apple's traditional naming conventions when compared to previously-reported potential names for the phones, including the odd "iPhone XS Max" and the "iPhone Xr".

The low priced "budget" iPhone X model with a 6.1 inch screen may be the biggest highlight of the event and will replace the iPhone 8 model. It would include 4GB Ram with A12 chipset and dual sim-card options.

All three iPhone will come with the Nokia NOW screen. The LCD iPhone could be equipped with a single-lens camera, compared with the double-lens cameras on the higher-end iPhones.
