The site also reports a $900 (around £696 / AU$1,266) rough price point for the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, while the iPhone XS Plus is said to be priced around the $1,000 (around £774 / AU$1,404) mark.

China Telecom has shared an image (pictured above) which teases dual-SIM capabilities on the upcoming iPhone.

Leaks and rumors have it that Apple plans to unveil three new iPhone models, including an improved version of the flagship X model released a year ago with a $1,000 price tag. But if you thought the names "iPhone XS" and "iPhone XS Max" were already cringe-worthy, the colorful "iPhone Xc" might have something to upset hopefuls more than just its name.

Three new devices expected, with a 512GB storage likely in top-end model.

It was rumoured earlier that the iPhone XS, iPhone XS and that relatively affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will come with support for dual SIM cards.

With Apple's event coming up in less than two days, telcos around the world are preparing for the launch of the three new iPhones. Apple is also expected to launch a new series of MacBooks and a new Apple Watch.

However, it will be the first ever Apple iPhone to come with dual SIM dual standby support.

While a 20% increase is quite an alarming rise for Apple fans, Mohan says that the most likely scenario will be that Apple will move 10% of its iPhone assembly to the US, while the average price of an iPhone will increase by 8%.

The 5.8-inch phone leaked will be called iPhone XS, the 6.5-inch version will be called iPhone XS Max and the 6.1-inch LCD will be called iPhone XR iPhone XC (not sure). According to a new leak, however, that won't be the case. While we have previously reported many hints that check the "Yes" box, here are even more confirmations.

Meanwhile, Apple's new iPhones have been listed on a Romanian website Quickmobile. A separate teaser from rival China Telecom also hints at dual-SIM functionality for a next-generation iPhone.

The slide also shows that preorders for the iPhone are likely to go live on Friday, September 14th. The dual SIM iPhone will be mostly limited to a few Asian markets like China, India, and Indonesia. The iPhone X, meanwhile, has a Dh661.50 disparity between its own 64GB and 256GB offerings.
