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.

Ming-Chi Kuo believed that Apple would announce and release all the three iPhones in September, 2018 since previous year, iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were announced in September, as well.

The publication also points out that the flash is much smaller than the lenses in past iPhones. While not pictured, the flash is expected to be on the right side of the three cameras.

For some time, Apple has reserved the dual camera for the "Plus" models in its range, something that has changed with the arrival of the iPhone X.

Apple has also asked suppliers to prepare earlier for the upcoming OLED models to make sure the smartphones will be launch in September and eliminate the late launch of last year's iPhone X. While the Cupertino based tech giant is still mum about its plans, Forbes has managed to obtain alleged schematics of two new upcoming Apple phones. The only difference is that all three iPhone models this year are expected to be designed around the iPhone X and will vary in sizes which includes a large 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus model, a 6.1-inch IPS LCD budget model and a 5.8-inch compact model. It's expected to feature a steel chassis and weigh slightly more than the iPhone 8 Plus (202g). For one, it will have a single camera on the rear and according to reports, it will be using LCD instead of OLED for its display; this is mainly for cost-cutting measures. You'll see on iPhone X schematics, the flash is substantially smaller than the cameras.

Another factor that deems the 6.1-inch iPhone "budget" is the fact that it will lose 3D Touch - we don't expect many tears to be shed over this. But if you are willing to spend top dollar, you'll be getting the best flagship experience with either iPhone X 2018 or iPhone X Plus.

The 6.1-inch phone measures 147.12 x 71.52mm and is understandably taller than the X (143.6 x 70.9mm), given its bigger screen (6.1-inch vs 5.8-inch).
