Or at least according to the prices being shown here, with 5,888 RMB ($860) for the iPhone XC, 7,388 RMB ($1,080) for the iPhone XS, and 8,388 RMB ($1,230) for the iPhone XS Plus. The XS Plus was rumoured to have been called the iPhone XS Max and is expected to have a 6.5 inch OLED screen. That's all up in the air.

Now, two Chinese carriers have published images teasing a new iPhone with dual-SIM functionality days ahead of Apple's big September 12 event. Original, no Snake 2 nonsense. Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are expected to be successors to the iPhone X released previous year as they both might feature OLED displays on the front. In the case of this year's iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, we're expecting a sleek new gold finish to be made available in addition to silver and space gray.

With Apple poised to host their "Gather Round" on September 12, 2018, it seems likely that smartphone aficionados will finally be able to lay all of the speculation surrounding the latest iPhone models to rest. Originally posted in Chinese, English language translators quickly skimmed the information for any and all pertinent details that may unearth some clues concerning Apple's plans for their North American launch.

In terms of internals, iPhone XC is expected to get 3GB RAM, upto 256GB storage and run on Apple's A12 chipset. There might be a few more new features Apple shows off on stage this week though, and one rumor suggested that the new models might have twice as much storage as their predecessors. That could mean the lower-cost device ships in limited quantities initially, they said.
