Apple iPhone XS

The iPhone XS is expected to be the premium-edition model with an OLED screen in the upcoming range of iPhone 2018. According to the leak, the phone would come in two screen sizes – 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch. The leak does not reveal if the phone would be based on the iPhone X concept, therefore there is no confirmation on the screen notch. The phone, however, is said to feature a glass-metal-glass design that Apple introduced with the iPhone 8 series.
