Moreover, the leaked photos also show that some part of the rumored phone is not part of iPhone, citing that the original post further claims that these parts were manufactured by LG instead of Samsung.

 

Apple users first spotted the leaked photos at the MacX forums. The post, however, was taken down immediately. MacRumors was able to save the leaked images. As indicated, the original post said that the parts were actually sourced from an LG facility based in Vietnam.

 

The post also hinted that the parts of the rumored iPhone X Plus were part of what appears to be a “trial run of production equipment.” It can be recalled that the Cupertino-based company is planning to release three models of iPhones this year.

 

This iPhone is actually an upgraded version of iPhone X. The upgraded version would be a 5.8-inch OLED screen. Another iPhone will be a larger model with a 6.5-inch OLED screen. And the last would be an iPhone model with a less expensive LCD screen.

 

Meanwhile, other Apple users claim that the leaked parts appeared to be for a larger, 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. It is obvious that the rumored phone has a larger screen when compared to the present iPhone X. However, the rumored phone has the exact notch size located at the top of the screen.

 

iPhone X: Apple Is Investigating Incoming Call’ Bug

Hundreds of iPhone X owners took to Apple’s support forums to expressed their disappointments. They complained, in particular, about a glitch they experienced using their iPhone X. iPhone X owners discovered a bug that prevents them from answering incoming calls on their smartphones.

 

iPhone X users complain of “Incoming Call” Bug

 

Citing a report from the Financial Times, iPhone X users claim that the touchscreen of their smartphones is lighting up when their devices start ringing. But when the screen immediately activates, the call would be dropped instantly, and users could no longer answer the call.

 

“I hear the phone ringing, but the graphics on the screen doesn’t change to the phone mode, only after 5-6 rings. Not only I can’t answer the phone, but I also can’t see who is calling But only after about 10 seconds,” an iPhone X user wrote in one forum.

 

 

“To solve this, I need to restart the phone, until it comes back again. It doesn’t help to close all the apps. I’ll just add that it is a new phone, not from second hand or something, and I’m far from using all my memory,” the user further said.

 

Responding to the issue, the Cupertino-based company said that it is now looking into this issue. Apple said that iPhone X users who are experiencing this kind of technical bug should submit a report about the issue to Apple Support.

 

 

By submitting a description or a report about the bug, it would really help the Apple team to probe and fix the bug. Just last week, Apple said that it is trying to improve the performance of iOS 12, the rumored next version of the company’s operating system.

iPhone 11 Rumors: Here’s What We Know So Far

Rumors have it that Apple Inc. is planning to release a new flagship called iPhone 11. Although the tech company has just released iPhone X, reports across the web indicate that a new iPhone is something to look forward this year.

 

Here’s what we know so far

 

The Cupertino-based company, according to The Investor, would likely to release two models of iPhones. The iPhones are expected to feature OLED displays. This confirms the earlier information that Apple, in 2017, had ordered with Samsung for 6.5, 5.2 and 5.8-inch displays. But the company has reportedly cancelled the 5.2-inch display because of its low marketability.

 

Apart from the OLED display, the company has also ordered a panel with Japan display for its 6-inch plus iPhone model, according to a report published by The Wall Street Journal. Based on the same report, Apple has chosen Japan Display because its panel is cheaper compared with the OLED displays.

 

What’s amazing about having a Full Active LDC display is its darker black feature and can be used if your hands are wet. This information backs the information reported by KGI Securities that Apple may release a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone this year.

 

Also, a recent report from KGI Securities revealed that the budget iPhone 6.1-inch wouldn’t have the Apple’s 3D Touch feature. If this rumor is true, then it is expected that Apple users would be disappointed on this one.

 

Regarding casing, the rumored iPhone 11 would feature a metal case. All rumored iPhone models would come in various colors. Casetek was reported to supply the cases of the rumored iPhone 11. On features, the rumored phone won’t feature TrueDepth as the company would be focusing to launch new models with front-facing TrueDepth cameras as well as stabilizing equipment.

Apple To Release 6.1-inch iPhone sans iPhone X’s killer features

A rumor has surfaced this week saying that Apple Inc. is planning to release a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone without a 3D Touch and other iPhone X’s killer features.

 

The news comes after the reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple might release three models of iPhones. He said that the Cupertino-based tech company would likely release a 6.1-inch display new mid-range model of iPhone.

 

Will Apple release a new iPhone sans iPhone X’s killer feature?

 

The company is also poised to release a cheaper version of iPhone X featuring a 5.8-inch OLED screen and a larger 6.5-inch OLED model. The rumored iPhones have reportedly borrowed some elements from both iPhone X and iPhone 8 models, respectively.

 

 

Also, rumors suggest that the 6.1-inch smartphone features an aluminum frame, a rectangular battery as well as a standard non-stacked logic board, based on Kuo’s research notes.

 

It is also worthy to note that the rumored 6.1-inch smartphone would have an LCD panel instead of having an OLED display. This is contrary to the early reports despite the iPhone’s bezel-reducing design feature and a Face ID.

 

And speaking of the iPhone prices, Kuo hinted that the rumored iPhone would be sold between $700-$800, which is cheaper compared to iPhone X’s $999 hefty price tag. But these remains to be a rumor even though Kuo has a clean record of predicting the plans of Apple.

 

Regarding features, Apple’s 6.1-inch device would possibly drop some killer features of iPhone X. The rumored smartphone would only use a single rear camera and 3 GB of RAM. The phone would also not be equipped with a 3D Touch, a feature that is embedded in iPhone X and iPhone X Plus models.

Is Samsung Attempting To Copy iPhone X Design? A Patent Says So

The popularity of Apple’s iPhone X (read as ten) is undeniable. To the extent that a rumor suggests that the Cupertino-based tech giant’s rival is reportedly copying the design of the popular iPhone X.

 

Just this week, a report has surfaced saying that Samsung-Apple’s archrival-plans to copy the iPhone X’s notch. Designers said that Apple’s latest iPhone’s notch is a compromised between functionality and design.

Is Samsung copying  Apple’s latest iPhone’s design?

 

In fact, one may notice that Apple is genius when it found ways to hide the front-facing camera, speakers, sensors-all under the elegant and classy screen. With this, users see that the notch will be installed on all smartphones, especially Apple’s iPhones.

 

Although Samsung may not public admit that it would copy Apple’s latest iPhone’s design, a new report indicates, however, that Samsung is making some drastic change on its notches.

 

The news comes after a recent Samsung patent application published at Mobielkopen, revealed that its future smartphones would have an all-screen smartphones both with a front-facing camera and sensor notches.

Samsung reportedly filed the patent back in July last year, before the public debut of iPhone X. But during that time, the rumor was on the mill that Apple’s new smartphone would have become the iPhone X’s notch.
