Sooner or later, Apple is bound to switch its entire iPhone lineup to a bezel-less display at the front. When that happens, the company will have to revisit its strategy of shipping the smaller iPhone with a 4.7-inch screen and the ‘Plus’ model with a 5.5-inch display.
A new video from CURVED Labs shows off renders of the iPhone XS, iPhone X and the iPhone X Plus with a bezel-less front and envisions how Apple’s future iPhone lineup would look like. With the switch to the bezel-less display, Apple would end up renaming the iPhone SE to the iPhone XS instead of renaming it to iPhone X ‘SE.’ The switch to a bigger bezel-less display would mean the iPhone X SE would end up replacing the existing 4.7-inch iPhone in the company’s lineup.
Then, there’s the iPhone X with its 5.8-inch display. Finally, there is the iPhone X+ with a much bigger display than the iPhone X thereby earning it its ‘Plus’ moniker. Since the iPhone X+ comes with the biggest display among the three iPhones, it would also come with a substantially bigger battery which translates into battery life far superior to the other two iPhones.
While the iPhone X+ might just turn out to be a reality real soon, the iPhone X ‘SE’ is going to take its own sweet time to materialise — if Apple is even planning on something similar. The small form factor and the inclusion of a bezel-less display at the front would make internal space inside the handset very limited which might not be sufficient to include a dual-camera setup and the relevant Face ID components as envisioned in the renders.
What do you think of the iPhone X ‘SE’, iPhone X and the iPhone X+ based on the above renders?
