All three 2018 iPhones to get Face ID, A12 processors

Apple will not introduce a major design overhaul, but we expect bumped up internals on all the three iPhones. Moreover, both the OLED iPhones and LCD iPhone will feature improved Face ID, Apple A12 processors, faster LTE and other under-the-hood improvements.

Innovation?iPhone X Plus schematics suggest triple lens camera setup

Notably, iPhone X Plus is said to feature a triple lens rear camera setup, according to the schematics, and this might be the only USP of the larger iPhone X which will cost upwards of $1000.

However, can buyers settle for just an old 'S' upgrade Apple followed for years or will the world's richest company innovate like Vivo and OPPO?
