Leaked images claim to show iPhone X Plus & 6.1-inch LCD iPhone
Renowned leaker Benjamin Geskin has shared what he claims are dummy units of Apple’s upcoming iPhone X Plus & 6.1-inch LCD iPhone models.
Dummy units are usually produced based on leaks and chassis design schematics from Apple’s asian supply chain. The images shared today don’t come with any surprises, with the iPhone X Plus dummy closely matching the current iPhone X, and the 6.1-inch unit showing a device with slightly larger bezels for the LCD panel.
Matching previous reports, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model appears only to have one rear-facing camera, similar to the iPhone 8, and it looks as if compared to the premium iPhone X Plus which uses stainless steel, the low-cost iPhone model will feature an aluminum frame.
Apple is said to be delaying the release of their LCD iPhone until October according to Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty who claims that problems with the device’s backlighting system have caused a 1 month delay in mass production.

Although these images don’t really reveal any secrets for the iPhone X Plus, it is believed Apple will release the device in a ‘Blush Gold’ finish, something the U.S. Federal Communications Commission revealed earlier in the year.
Apple’s 6.1-inch “budget” iPhone is expected to come in the same colour options as the iPhone silicone and leather cases. That would mean white, black, flash yellow, bright orange, electronic blue and taupe.
