Apple plans to release three new smartphones later this year, including an 6.5-inch iPhone model - bigger than Samsung's S9 Plus - Bloomberg reported on Monday.
Bloomberg reported the largest iPhone could have a screen of close to 6.5 inches, larger than the 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus announced on Monday in Barcelona, Spain, and larger than the current Samsung Note 8's 6.3-inch screen. Samsung traditionally announces new Note series devices in the fall.
The trio also includes an upgraded handset the same size as the current iPhone X and a less expensive model with some of the X's key features. Apple also plans a gold-colored device to help boost sales in Asia, Bloomberg reported.
Apple is also preparing an update to the regular-sized iPhone X, Bloomberg said, adding that the phones are expected to use next-generation A12 processors and will continue to include stainless steel edges and will be Apple's high-end smartphone offerings.
Apple declined to comment.
