Check out the leaked schematics for the 6.5-inch and 6.1-inch 2018 iPhone models by clicking on the slideshow below.

New schematics showing off the design of the much-anticipated smartphones for this year, the Apple iPhone X Plus, and the budget variant of the iPhone X have been spotted on the internet.

As per the Forbes report, the iPhone X Plus will have a 6.5-inch OLED display, and might sport a vertically-stacked triple camera configuration.

That should mean a monochrome sensor which will help to improve low light photography and sharpness of images.

There are plenty of rumors suggesting that Apple is working on one or two additional iPhone X models with even bigger displays than its current version. It's expected to feature a steel chassis and weigh slightly more than the iPhone 8 Plus (202g).

The phone should also feature the Face ID system found in the current iPhone X. This will use the multiple camera sensors that can be seen in the notch on the leaked schematics.

This is expected to be the only model with that top-end camera while the other iPhone X handsets should have dual or single cameras.

The new iPhone X Plus will allegedly feature a second generation of improved Face ID. However, Apple won't hold the bragging rights about being the first to bring this technology in a smartphone as companies such as Huawei with its P20 Pro has already achieved it. That's longer and wider than the current iPhone X, which measures 143.6 x 70.9 mm (5.65 x 2.79 inches).

The source of this leak also claims that Apple won't release four new phones as previously leaked.

The schematics were obtained by Forbes from accessory maker Ghostek, so they're not necessarily Apple's own schematics, but there's a fair chance Ghostek does have access to design information, since it will need that in order to have cases ready for the launch of the iPhone XI range.
