I would like to move from 8 plus to a phone with no notch and at least the same but ideally a better battery and at least similar screen size. Hate the silly currently iphone X screen size, resolution and the fugly notch

I'm going to guess all new iPhones (minus the 'budget SE variants') will have glassbacks. I see the 2020 iPhone sans power port as I bet Apple's ideal vision is an iPhone with no ports.

USB-C charging cable with a better adapter
A12
ProMotion
Better battery life
Improved camera quality, possibly due to larger sensor and more natural processing (fingers crossed) - see https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/cameras-in-2018-iphones-rumors-predictions-requests.2123869/
Hopefully less scratch prone screen and also less of that flickering
Better portrait mode?
USBC is a weird downgrade to ask for. Its larger, less robust, less commonly found in the wild, not any faster and no new capability.

Few disagreements:

1.) Your predicted pricing is no where near accurate. The X Plus will not start at $899.00. Apple isn’t about to drop the price of the iPhone X $200.00, considering the 5.8 X started at $1000 . The 5.8 X will likely be around $899.00 and the 6.5 Plus will be around a $1000 for a base storage based off recent predictions.

2.) The triple lens is highly doubtful for 2018. Only one Rumor has indicated Apple will venture with triple lens for *future* iPhones. Something major like this also would be more talked about, possible leaked parts/photo’s, ect.

3.) Everything else in your post is already expected with the True-Depth Camera, Glass back for the OLED models for wireless charging.

Prediction X wish

I will be happy though if iPhones finally come with adapters capable of charging faster than the 5W models. I only have so many 10W iPad adapters.

And to be clear, I think the cable will be lightning on one side and USB-C on the other. And yeah, I'd be content if they kept classic USB 3.X, but I'm sure it will make a couple Macbook Pro with Touchbar users very happy. The keyboard still wouldn't be ideal, but at least they would be able to charge their phones directly.

from the sounds the iphone X plus the price will start at where the current iphone x starts..which would at least be better for the bigger screen.

I would like to see a 128GB option. I have a 256 X but am only using about 70 GB. 64 is not quite enough, 256 is overkill.
I Think it’s all cost strategy for Apple. They know that by not offering a middle option like 128 GB, the consumer only has two options, the lowest offering for storage or the highest, and the highest being the most expensive. By offering a middle tier, I think Apple see’s it as a median that most consumers would choose, but now they’re forced to take advantage of the highest storage tier when they don’t actually need all that memory.

Yes I agree with you. They may start them at 128 though.
