Want a possible early glimpse at what appears to be this year’s fancy new 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone? Renowned Apple leaker Ben Geskin is here to help!

Geskin posted the images on Twitter. He describes the iPhones in the pictures as “dummy models,” meaning that they are models he has made based on leaked Apple schematics. Check out more images below.

As can be seen in the pictures, the bezel on the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is thinner than last year’s iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. It’s also marginally thicker than the one seen on the OLED iPhone X Plus. That syncs with previous rumors suggesting that new technology will allow Apple to slim its LCD handset bezel to just 2mm.

iPhone X Plus and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone colors

In the image, the iPhone X Plus is silver, while the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is space gray. A recent report suggested that Apple’s LCD handset will sport the widest range of colors since 2013’s iPhone 5c — including white, black, flash yellow, bright orange, electronic blue and taupe or gold options. An alternative take from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the phone will come in gray, white, blue, red and orange finishes.

Kuo also said the 6.5-inch OLED model will come in black, white and gold options.

Apple is said to be releasing three new iPhones this year, including the two models mentioned above and an upgrade to the existing iPhone X. All three 2018 iPhone models reportedly will include Face ID technology introduced in iPhone X as well as better battery life.

Some analysts predict the range of options will finally fuel the iPhone upgrade supercycle everyone expected in 2018.

While there’s no guarantee that Geskin’s iPhone mockups will be the ones that ships, he’s shown himself to be well-connected with sources in the supply chain before.
