The unveiling of the new iPhones will take place next Wednesday, but there is still much uncertainty about the naming of the new models. A photo reportedly taken during an internal presentation by a Chinese provider suggests that Apple will unveil the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Plus and iPhone Xc.
iPhone Xs series
According to China Mobile, the iPhone Xs Plus is the largest model of this generation with a 6.5-inch OLED screen, while this model was referred to earlier this month as the iPhone Xs Max. The iPhone Xc should be the affordable alternative with a 6.1-inch LCD screen and a design that is similar to the current iPhone X. The use of the letter ‘C’ in the name is probably a reference to the iPhone 5c, which was released in 2013.

The generally well-informed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple to release the 6.1-inch iPhone Xc in the colors red, orange, gray and white. The more expensive iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus will be available in space gray, silver and gold. The photo of the presentation also shows the different prices: the iPhone Xs has a price of 7388 yuan (1079$), the iPhone Xs Plus costs 8388 yuan (1224$) and the iPhone Xs would be 5888 yuan (860$) should cost in China.
In addition, a photo appeared on SlashLeaks showing the packaging sticker for the iPhone Xs. The entry-level model is again equipped with 64GB of storage space and a variant with 256GB of storage will probably also be offered. Unfortunately, it also seems that Apple is going to stop supplying a 3,5mm-to-Lightning adapter. Finally, China Telecom published another image showing an image of a new iPhone with two SIM cards. Earlier rumors have suggested that this iPhone only appears in China.
We do not have to wait long for confirmation, because the new iPhones will be officially announced by Apple at the annual event on Wednesday 12 September at the Steve Jobs Theater.
