The news source explains that a growing number of consumers want larger, tablet-esque models. However, there are a number of other consumers looking for a more affordable version of the iPhone X.
Bloomberg explains that the new, bigger model is set to be around the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, but the screen will be about an inch larger since it has an edge-to-edge design that the current iPhone X has. Plus, it'll also likely feature the Face ID scanner that the current iPhone uses.
What's cool for those who travel? They are reportedly looking into adding dual SIM card capabilities for the larger model, letting users easily switch carrier plans without having to swap out cards. (A perk for touring bands, right?!)
After nixing gold version of the iPhone X, Apple considering color for updated model plus giant phone. Company also weighing including dual-SIM capabilities on larger phone as carriers balk at E-SIM in iPhones. https://t.co/hqg8MGScFv
