Apple 2018 iPhone series has become the subject of many leaks, and the latest set includes the front panels for all upcoming iPhones. According to the rumour mill, Apple is supposed to release three iPhones for 2018; one which will be similar to the original iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED, there will be an iPhone X Plus with a 6.5-inch display and a more budget friendly iPhone X or iPhone 9 with a 6.1-inch LCD display.
The latest set of images were shared by tipster Ben Geskin who has the handle @VenyaGeskin1 on Twitter, which reveal the front panel of all three upcoming iPhones.

According to Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, the iPhone X budget variant could start at $600, while iPhone X with 5.8-inches display will have a price of $800. Finally, iPhone X Plus will be the most expensive on the list with close to $1000 price point.
