The iPhone 11 release date is still several weeks away, but some of you might want to think about skipping the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, or another iPhone model in favor of waiting for the 2018 iPhone which could include an iPhone X Plus.

Apple’s iPhone X is still fairly new, but we’re hearing rumors about a potential successor, a device some people are calling iPhone 9, iPhone XI, iPhone X Plus, iPhone X 2, or iPhone 11.

The current iPhone X is an exceptional phone with a best-in-class 5.8-inch OLED display, an outstanding camera, excellent battery life, numerous software upgrades including animated emoji characters. and excellent battery life.

Apple sells several different iPhones, but the iPhone X is the company’s flagship mode. It’s also the company’s most expensive iPhone option.

The company isn’t talking about the second-generation iPhone X yet and we probably won’t get the announcement until the fall of 2018 if the company sticks to the usual release cycle. That said, we can already help you decide if waiting for 2018’s version of the iPhone X is worth it.

The iPhone X is an outstanding phone, but it’s pricey and only comes in two colors with two storage options and one screen size. There are plenty of reasons to upgrade right now, but some of you might want to avoid it and wait for the 2018 iPhone models.

Those of you who want the iPhone X experience in a bigger package might want to wait for the rumored iPhone X Plus. A credible Apple source believes the company is in the process of making an iPhone X with a larger screen.

iPhone 11 Rumors

As we push into the new year we’re starting to hear more and more about next version’s of the iPhone X. It’s still early which means there are still moving parts, but all signs are pointing to more horsepower thanks to a new A12 processor, and, potentially, a new screen size.

Well-regarded analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is cooking up at least three new iPhone models for 2018:

  • A 6.5-inch OLED model that many are calling the iPhone X Plus. This device is expected to have a ton of RAM and a huge battery.
  • A 5.8-inch OLED successor to the iPhone X.
  • A brand new 6.1-inch LCD model. The 6.1-inch iPhone is rumored to have a metal design. The current iPhone X comes with a glass back.
  • Dummy units of all three devices are starting to emerge giving us a potential look at their designs.
  • Front glass panels have leaked showing thicker bezels on the 6.1-inch LCD model.
  • Additional dummy units show the iPhone X Plus vs. the 6.1-inch LCD model.

Kuo’s recent research notes suggest that Apple’s 6.1-inch iPhone will also come with 3GB of RAM (possibly 4GB), a single-lens rear camera, no 3D Touch, and an extremely competitive price point.

Samsung is also expected to begin production of the iPhone 11’s display in the near future which could mean a faster launch in 2018. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were released in September while the iPhone X release was pushed to November.

French site Consomac reports that Apple’s registered several iPhone model numbers at the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), a sign of progress. These model numbers include existing devices like the iPhone SE running iOS 12.

Waiting for the iPhone 11 is tempting, but if you find something you absolutely love and you don’t want to wait a full year for the device to arrive, you might want to stop waiting and avoid several more weeksmo of rumors and speculation.
