Three new iPhones launching this week

Central Station | 11 Sep 2018

Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones on Wednesday: an updated version of the iPhone X, a larger version, and a cheaper, 6.1-inch LCD version, which is reported to be called the iPhone XC.

It has been suggested that the successor to the iPhone X would be called the iPhone XS, while the larger iPhone X model will be called the unwieldy iPhone XS Max.

However, a slide purported to be from a Chinese carrier's marketing presentation has been circulating on Weibo, and suggests that the lineup will be called the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, and iPhone XC, which seem to be more in line with Apple's traditional naming conventions.

The slide also lists the Chinese prices for the phones, presumably at US$699 (HK$5452.20) for the iPhone XC, US$900 for the iPhone XS, and US$1000 for the iPhone XS Plus.

The rumored colors for the iPhone XC, gleaned from a series of pictures of prototypes to Twitter, are red, white and blue.
