A new set of images have surfaced on the internet showing what seems to be the ‘iPhone 9’ renders.

This morning render images of the 2018 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display were released. The images showcased a single lens camera at the back and aluminum frame. So let’s dive in to see what the new render images portray in comparison with the iPhone X Plus and iPhone X.
‘iPhone 9’ Schematics Show The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone Against iPhone X Plus And iPhone X
All variants of the upcoming iPhone X models have been previously detailed. Wylsa (via Ben Geskin) shared new render images based on the alleged schematics of the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus as well as the 2018 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. The images appear to show what we can get our hands on this fall.
The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be the company’s middle-sized iPhone between the iPhone X Plus and the iPhone X. Previous render images showcased an aluminum frame and a single lens camera at the back of the device. The LCD iPhone is named as ‘iPhone 9’ in the post which will make it a successor to the iPhone 8.
Apart from the general design novelty, it has been speculated that the iPhone 9 will be priced lower compared to high-end models. Moreover, the 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD panel will feature a marginally bigger bottom bezel. Apart from this, the side bezels are thicker as well compared to the iPhone X Plus and the iPhone X.
The aluminum frame on the LCD iPhone will put the cost low. However, the latest render shows a stainless steel finish that matches that of the current iPhone X. Nonetheless, the image should not be taken as the final word. The price of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is expected to be priced at around $700 but will incorporate the company’s A12 chipset. Furthermore, it may not come with 3D Touch functionality.
A side by side render of the iPhone X Plus and iPhone 8 Plus is also shared by Wysla so do check that out as well. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.
