You may have seen the invite Apple sent last week, asking members of the press to "gather round".

Express.co.uk will be covering Apple's hardware event live on September 12.

No specifics surrounding either camera arrangement have been leaked as yet but we'd expect the XS and XS Plus to stick with the same composition as iPhone X, with a few improvements. The latest leak gives us our first sneak peek at two of them. One of them will be a direct successor to the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED display. The iPhone XS Plus is expected to deliver the sharpest screen of the three new devices with a pixel density between 480 and 500ppi.

There are also rumours that there's a 6.1 inch model, with an LCD screen, which is supposed to replace the iPhone 8.

All three new devices will bear the same general design that was introduced with the iPhone X - a notched screen with close to no bezels, a glass back with metal frame, and a very high screen-to-body ratio. After that, consumers will likely be waiting another seven days before the handsets begin shipping, making for a potential iPhone XS release date of Friday September 28. That's why this 6.3-inch iPhone XS will reportedly be called the iPhone XS Max. In terms of pricing, Apple could continue with the $1000 mark for the iPhone XS Max. Another input is also that Apple will be dropping the "Plus" suffix with its phones. Past year for example, a rogue Apple employee released an iOS 11 GM which, among other things, confirmed the launch of the iPhone X and an LTE-enabled Apple Watch. The iPhone XS will be priced starting at $899 (approx Rs 64,500) while the larger variant is expected to get the heftiest price tag of $999 (Rs 71,700).

According to reports, the 6.1 inch LCD iPhone 9 will cost close to what the iPhone 8 costed during the time of tis release. According to their sources, the 2018 iPhone with LCD panel will be costing Euro 799 (approx Rs 67,000).

I'd like to think that "Plus" sounds better than "Max", just by default, but apparently we're going to live in a world where the "iPhone excess" isn't bad enough, but now we can have maximum excess, too. The prices are for the base 64GB variant. Macerkopf said two different sources quoted the same prices.

Then there's the big update expected this year - dual-SIM support.

It seems a little odd to us that Apple would price the massive iPhone Xs Max at the same level as last year's flagship - especially given that Apple isn't known as a company with a tendency to slash prices so quickly.

All the three models would feature the second-generation Face ID technology.

What is the iPhone XS? It also includes a new Shortcuts feature.
