Apple fans won't have to wait until the company's event on September 12 to see the new goodies Apple plans to unleash on the world this year. All three devices will have facial recognition and edge-to-edge screens like the iPhone X, but the two premium models will have OLED screens, while the cheaper phone will use LCD technology, Bloomberg News has reported.
To recall, the leading tech company opened the Apple Park campus previous year and unveiled its premium iPhone X handset as part of the tenth-anniversary celebration. That lines up with the naming scheme that Apple has used in the past, which added an "S" to model names that were in-between major generations and focused on internal changes.
While there is no guarantee "iPhone XS" and "iPhone XS Plus" will be the official names of the next OLED iPhone models, this may be one clue it could be a possibility. Notably, all new iPhone models are expected to have edge-to-edge displays, gesture controls, and FaceID.

First up we have an image of what has been called the "iPhone XS". The new models will also reportedly increase in size, from a 10.5-inch version to an 11-inch and a 12.9-inch option.
In typical enigmatic style, Apple offered scant clues to what it has in store for the presentation to take place in the Steve Jobs Theater at its spaceship campus in the Silicon Valley city of Cupertino.
Apple's new iPhone lineup will feature an edge-to-edge display with slim bezels and no Home button, as Touch ID has been replaced with Face ID, which is enabled through the advanced TrueDepth camera system.
