Foxconn employees have told the site that Apple may launch two different models of the LCD iPhone this year. One of which will purportedly be a dual-SIM dual standby device unique to China.
The new iPhone started mass production, preparing for the three new machines announced by Apple in September, but Foxconn employees revealed that the new machine has four codes, such as 801, 802, 803, and 804, which also makes the market curious, obviously only three models. How do you have 4 new codes for the new machine?
It's speculated that the iPhones codenamed 801 and 802 are likely the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones which use a stainless steel frame. The devices codenamed 803 and 804 allegedly use an aluminum alloy frame suggesting that those are the 6.1-inch LCD iPhones.
References in iOS 12 beta 5 support the upcoming release of a dual-SIM iPhone. A component of the system responsible for generating diagnostic reports has references to "second SIM status" and a "second SIM tray status". Another component references a "dual sim device".
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhones around September 12th. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
