Flagships 2018: All that we know and await

The biggest expected upgrade in Apple Watch 4 is an edge-to-edge screen that creates about 15% more surface area.

As we've said, an iPhone XS may very well be the most expensive iPhone Apple has ever released, which given past price tags, is really saying something.

In the event that the naming of Apple's OLED models stays as leaked today, it will stamp a move from a naming pattern built up by the Cupertino-based firm.

These aren't functional devices, but they look identical to 6.1-inch iPhone dummy units seen in previous leaks. However, the second is demonstrably out of proportion with the demo device.

Not only would this be the largest iPhone to date - and three inches bigger than the original 2007 iPhone - but this is even grander than Samsung's just-launched Galaxy Note9, at 6.4 inches. With every day that passes we start hearing about more rumors and leaks regarding the 2018 iPhone devices. And for those who prefer a smaller handset, will we finally get an update to the ageing-but-likeable iPhone SE? But what do we know about them?

How much will an iPhone XS cost? With less than a week to go before the official launch, alleged back cases of the 6.1-inch LCD model and the premium 6.5-inch OLED iPhone variant have been spotted at a Walmart store in the US.

CNET reported the defect will cause the smartphone to unexpectedly restart, free the screen or not turn on at all. It is seen sporting a glassy back panel with Red, White and Blue colours. Now, for the 6.5-inch OLED model that will be announced next week, the company will transition over to the "Max" brand which, in all honesty, is a bit odd. That said, rumour also has it that Apple is facing production issues with the low-priced iPhone 9.

According to Barrons, and expanded upon by iGeeksBlog, Apple may be working with STMicro to bring eSIM to its line of 2018 iPhones.

Google is also all set to announce its Pixel sequel on October 9, and this time too, we expect the search giant to do wonders with the minimal hardware.

As for the dual SIM tray, it is expected to be placed along the right edge. The larger version was said to be called iPhone XS Plus while the 6.1-inch LCD model would be called iPhone 9.
