    Mobile leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer this morning shared a hands-on video featuring alleged dummy units of the upcoming 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, just two days after rival leaker Ben Geskin posted images of two similar-looking dummy units.

    The video, provided by Tigermobiles.com, offers a clearer view size-wise of the two new Face ID-equipped all-screen models, which are expected to accompany a second-generation iPhone X in Apple's 2018 smartphone line-up, due to launch in the fall.

    Besides size, the clearest differentiator between the two handsets is the dual-lens rear camera on the iPhone X Plus and the single-lens on the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. Both lenses clearly protrude from the back of the chassis.

    Both models in the video feature a shiny silver frame, although Geskin's images depicted a frame on the 6.5-inch device that better matched the body color, similar to the current-generation iPhone X. Apple is thought to be using a steel frame on the larger device and an aluminum frame on the 6.1-inch iPhone as a cost-saving measure. Less clear on the video are the larger bezels on the 6.1-inch device to accommodate the lower-spec LCD display.

    The dummy units used here both have white backs; well-connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes the next-generation iPhone X models will be available in Black, White, and Gold, while the 6.1-inch model could come in a wide array of colors, including red, blue, orange, gray, and white.

    Dummy units are typically based on design schematics leaked from Apple's supply chain in China, and these handsets tally with the rumors we've heard already, but we'll have to wait for Apple's official iPhone launch in September or thereabouts for the full story on the new smartphones' full feature set.

    The 6.5 OLED iPhone is next on my list. It Surprisingly doesn’t look *that* big. Perhaps a comparison of the dummy 6.1 LCD, 2017 iPhone X and dummy 6.5 X would be a better comparison of all three units to show the contrast of sizes.

    I'll keep my iPhone X. I had every new iPhone on launch day for the past 11 years, but this time I will pass ne new one. I'm perfectly fine with my X, there is totally nothing I miss.

    Why don’t they place them next to a X. This doesn’t tell me anything

    Was thinking the same thing. Place it next to existing iPhones (4.7, Plus, X) for a good comparison of physical size.

    For what we know, these could be regular sized iPhone X on a smaller hand. They really don't look larger then the regular iPhone X. Onew of them does look a bit larger but really they don't look all that large.

    I want my 36 seconds back.

    It's just some random plastic slabs that someone probably 3D printed, and nothing more.

    The article clearly States they are dummy units, they are just intended to show differentiation, not sure what else you’re expecting here.

    We've come a lonnnggg way. Remember the days when we'd see a low quality, blurry, sketchy, 4 second video of some guy at a factory showing a phone and then quickly putting his camera away? This video is like MKBHD LOL

    Time, because it rules EVERYTHING!
    The camera lens seems odd, almost like a fish eye focus?

    They both look nice but you can’t see the bezel differences between them.

    There is nothing new to see on the outside body unless someone show us the difference between LCD and OLED. We're only about 1 1/2 month away and I'll wait to see what Apple is going to show us.

    LOL, bigger screens are helpful for those who need to use reading glasses.

    If accurate, and that is a big if, it looks like Apple is sticking with the lightning connector rather than USB-C. At least that looks like a lightning connector to me.

    So are these two bigger than the current X?

    Undoubtedly Apple will use lightning for this year‘s iPhone, every year that rumor seems to surface for the USB-C connector, not saying that it can’t happen, but lightning is still very much relevant in terms for iOS.

    wow bigger screen!... and...? I hope there is some real new features.
    Touch ID and Portrait modes were new attractive features. The notch isn't to me.

    Seems you missed @iToph point. They were saying they were more than content enough with the X, where they don’t likely have any desire to want to upgrade every year and/or they don’t need to ‘see’ new features to make the decision of keeping their current iPhone . Hardware wise, the iPhone X will likely be very much the same as the 2017 model, but just with upgrades with the camera, internals, etc.

    Yes but not that much.
    The Plus doesn't seem too big in the video, but I'll have to hold it in my hand and find out whether the display is too big or not. I may go for the 5.8'' this time.

    I'm pretty sure they'll stick with Lighting. USB-C may replace USB-A on the charging cable and on the power brick.

    Wow! All new design. It looks completely different nothing like the past iPhones.
    And Face-ID! YES!

    Still ugly to me. The camera and the shiny metal look awful. The iPhone 4 looks 10 years newer and much classier.

    Well that good for them except the world doesn't revolve around them. Quite a few of us want the bigger phone with the bigger screen. Willing to bet you they sell quite a bit more of these phones then the X...

    My response to that Member was not commenting on size, they were discussing they were perfectly fine with the current X they were using now.
