Sketchy claim of triple-lens 2018 iPhone schematic likely based on misunderstanding

As per the the renders shared, the large 6.5-inch model, which may be called the iPhone X Plus, is what is likely to catch everyone's attention as it may be the first iPhone with a triple lens setup.

According to some sources, Apple has asked its iPhone suppliers to make about 20% fewer parts for the iPhones releasing in next half of 2018. However, we are not sure if that is entirely true as the iPhone X features somewhat similar looking camera module with the third "lens" in the center actually being the LED flash (see image below).

The publication also points out that the flash is much smaller than the lenses in past iPhones. Recently a Korean based analyst reported that the triple camera iPhone will be the most expensive iPhone launched so far. Last year, however, the new iPhones were launched in September but the iPhone X went on sale in November. Rumors suggest that there will be a 300$ price difference between the iPhone X plus and the budget iPhone X. Apple has always introduced some remarkable technology with their latest iPhones and the same is expected in 2018.

"As per the leaked Schematics, the leaked Apple iPhone X Plus with 6.5" display has a body measuring 157.2 x 77.1 mm. The site obtained the schematics from accessory maker Ghostek, who also leaked them the design of the Samsung Galaxy S9 in December. That's more compact than the current iPhone 8 Plus' 158.4 x 78.1mm.

First glimpse of Gal Gadot in 'Wonder Woman 2' released
Welcome to Wonder Woman 1984 , the Warner Bros. sequel that's now lensing across parts of Washington D.C. with Chris Pine in tow. Filming is scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C.; Alexandra, Virginia; the United Kingdom; Spain; and, the Canary Islands.

The 6.1-inch iPhone is labeled as the "budget" model and is expected to offer a single camera and Face ID 1.0 - the same as on the iPhone X and occupying a larger notch than the one pictured in the 6.5-inch iPhone's render.

The bodyshell measures 147.12 x 71.52mm and the phone will not feature 3D Touch in the display, presumably a cost cutting exercise. Everyone was excited this year to hear some updates regarding the next iPhone at WWDC 2018 but the conference ended with no major announcements.

Another important detail provided by this leak on iPhone X Plus is that the upcoming Apple flagship will measure 156.9 x 76.9 mm.
