iPhone X Plus concept shows that bigger really is better

The iPhone X launch is less than a month away but we’re already lusting after what 2018 might bring. Even though the iPhone X has a larger screen than the iPhone 8 Plus, we wouldn’t be shocked to see the edge-to-edge display come to the Plus-sized model next year.

Now we know exactly what such a device could look like thanks to some new renders that show how beautiful all that screen real estate would be.

Check out what it’d look like compared to the iPhone X:

The 2018 iPhones will likely look identical to the current iPhone X design. However, Apple will likely change the name. The folks at iDropNews created a series of renders imagining what could be in store for fans that love phablet sized phones.

The 2018 iPhone X Plus would be similar in size to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8. The 6.4-inch screen would give Apple fans more pixels than any iPhone ever created. Apple would need to add 6GB of RAM though to beat the Galaxy Note 8’s spec sheet, but that’s usually not Apple’s highest priority.

If Apple does end up making an iPhone X Plus it definitely won’t be cheap. Prices could start around $1099 based on this year’s model.
