If you’re something like me, you’re going to have a hell of a time selecting your subsequent iPhone when September rolls round. On one hand, you’ve obtained a brand new first-of-its-kind mid-range iPhone coming that’ll function the identical design because the flagships, comparable specs, and a price ticket that would begin at simply $550. If rumors from the world’s most correct Apple insider pan out, it’ll function an LCD show as a substitute of an OLED display screen, an aluminum midframe as a substitute of chrome steel, and no 3D Touch assist.

In truth, the iPhone Eight Plus’ 5.5-inch show truly has extra actual property than the iPhone X’s 5.Eight-inch display screen.
Is 2018 actually going to be the primary yr since 2006 that I don’t purchase a flagship iPhone? A brand new set of renders from graphic designer Martin Hajek simply served as a painful reminder that I’m most likely going to cough up twice the money and spring for the iPhone X Plus.
In a publish on his weblog, Hajek confirmed us simply how attractive the supersized iPhone X will transform. Hajek may not be nice at rendering the human hand — severely, the thumb in that picture above goes to hang-out my nightmares — however he’s mainly a wizard when it…
