iPhone X Plus: Release Date, Price, Specs, Features
The Cupertino, California based tech giant surprised the whole world with three models of iPhone in 2017, doing away from its tradition of announcing two models. The company came out with the most advanced iPhone X ever along with two other models. This year again, we are expecting something similar from the company and probably be having iPhone X Plus being announced along with two other models. In this post, we will iPhone X Plus release date, iPhone X Plus Price, Specification, Features and everything else related it.
In 2017, while there was not much rumors about iPhone X release, most of the analysts were expecting three models to be the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and the iPhone 8 ! It was making more sense to have iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus because whenever the company announces full number iPhone, the next models are generally the upgraded versions – “S” moniker.

Since the company announced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in 2016, everyone was expecting iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus in 2017 but what we saw is totally different. Apple skipped iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus and jump straight to iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus along with iPhone X !
We are anticipating the trend of announcing upgraded version will continue with iPhone X and we will see iPhone X Plus along with iPhone 9 & iPhone 9 Plus. According to the rumors, iPhone 9 release date could be some time in second week of September 2018.
iPhone X Plus Release Date
We are expecting three models of iPhone in 2018 again and they are most probably be called iPhone 9, iPhone 9 Plus and iPhone X Plus. In this post, we will particularly talk about iPhone X Plus release date, price, specs and other news related to iPhone X Plus.
We did some research and noticed a trend in release dates of previous models of iPhone. Since last new years, the company has been choosing September month for the announcement of new iPhone and it becomes available for purchase in next few weeks.
Take a look at the release of last few versions of iPhone:
iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X – September 12, 2017
iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 – September 7, 2016
iPhone 6S Plus and iPhone 6S – September 9, 2015
iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 – September 9, 2014
iPhone 5S – September 10, 2013
iPhone 5 – September 21, 2012
The company has followed September month release cycle for announcing every new iPhone since iPhone 5 and hence it makes us believe the iPhone X Plus release date would again be in the September month of 2018. The release of iPhone X Plus in September will help company to make it available for purchase to the customers in next few weeks.
The company would target to make it available world wide well before Christmas and New year as most of the buyers purchase iPhone and other stuff during this festive season.
iPhone X Plus Specification and Features
iPhone X Plus Design & Screen –
the iPhone X Plus seems to be stealing design from its predecessor iPhone X ! except the size. The iPhone X Plus being a “Plus” model will be slightly bigger in size as compared to iPhone X. It may get 6.5-inch massive OLED touch screen.
It also said to be having same bazel-less design that will offer customers plenty of space on the screen. That’s a big plus for the people who like big screen smartphones. Though it might put iPhone X Plus under Phablet category.
Rear and Front Camera –
The iPhone X Plus most probably will get dual lens rear as well front facing camera. However, as far as the megapixel count of iPhone X Plus is concern, it may get 16 megapixels rear and also 16 megapixels front facing camera.
It will be able to record 4K video from front facing camera as well in addition to rear one. The other features that the camera might include is Optical Image Stablisation, Face & Smile Detection, Touch Focus, better Optical zoom etc.
Operating System & Processor-
The Operating system and Processors are the main components of a smartphone and if a smartphone have better operating system & processor, it is considered a good choice as most of the Phone hangs up while opening contacts or performing other tasks.
The iPhone X Plus will most probably be running iOS 12 operating system which is yet to be released.
As far as the Processor is concern, It might get Hexa-core CPU clocking at 2.50 Ghz. It will be supported by A12 chipset and Apple GPU.
Memory :RAM and Storage-
This is an important aspect of a smartphone. The iPhone X Plus is rumored to have 6 GB RAM and will be available in 128 GB & 256 GB versions only.
For the normal users, 128 GB is more then enough but if you think, you will be storing more songs and videos in your iPhone X Plus, consider buying 256 GB model. It will cost you bit more though.
The entire functioning of a smartphone depends on the battery and Apple understands how critical a battery is for the iPhone.
iPhone X has 2716 mAh non removable Li-ion battery and the iPhone X Plus will get even bigger Lithium-on battery. It may get 3,000 mAh non-removable battery which is expected to last longer than iPhone X.
- Long distance Wireless Charging.
- Dual lens primary as well secondary camera.
- L-shape battery.
- IP 68 Water & Dust Resistance.
- Very less chances but it might feature Dual SIM card slots
iPhone X Plus Price
This is bit early to say iPhone X Plus price as there is not much info available at the moment but based on our research, we anticipate, the 128 GB iPhone X Plus would cost between $1100-$1200 without contact in the United states. The price of 256 GB model could go as high as $1399!
The Phone probably be launched in the United States, UK, Canada at first ad the will become available to other countries such as Australia, France, Germany, India etc. The price of 128 GB and 256 GB iPhone X plus would be different in these countries as all of them have their own taxation policies that are going to affect the selling price.
