    There are possibly 4 rumored models: iPhone SE 2, iPhone 6.1” LCD, iPhone X 2018, iPhone X+ 2018. The names are not for sure, but the premise is more or less a successor model to different market segments.

    Which model works for you and why?

    No one can accurately reply to this before prices and release dates are out. The X Plus is on a lot of people’s radar, but if it comes in at some absurd price that changes things.

    I personally hope to keep my 8 plus for a few more years. The new phones may have better cameras or bigger screens, but that won’t convince me to buy one. I’m waiting for the next revolutionary breakthrough, and that’s not coming in 2018.

    Speculation and rumors is all we can go off right now. That’s why I said rumored models. I already know that I can only afford about $500 after selling off or trading in my 8+, so I gotta go from there.

    I know a LCD iPhone X model would be wildly popular due to the form factor and a lower price point.

    I’m going to keep my 8 plus for 3 years if possible. I have never used any phone for over 1 year straight.

    We know nothing about these phone models which aren’t due out for another 5 months. What a pointless thread.

    It’s looking more likely i’ll buy a 2017 iPhone or keep my 2015 one lol. Not sure if I want to waste any money this year.

    I'm sorry but I feel this is a foolish question. You can't really make a decision until you see what they are in reality and the cost, etc. I know some people are dead set on getting the X Plus, and that's fine, but I imagine most consumers will not decide until post keynote.

    I’m on a 6S with 2GB of RAM. The next iPhone I get will have 4GB of RAM. And the one after that 6GB or 8GB.

    A OnePlus 5T has 8gb of ram and isn’t any smoother than a phone with 4/6gb. Don’t get caught up in the marketing hype.

    But you can still discuss stuff based off rumors because they start early and can be consistent. We knew the headphone jack would be gone in early 2016. FaceID was discussed months before the X came out.

    The Only real phone that has the most mystery is the 6.1 LCD iPhone and perhaps an unreleased version two of the SE. But otherwise the 5.8 physically won’t have a lot of external changes, and even the price may or may not reflect a drop. But even if a 6.5 iPhone X releases, its going to be a larger version of the 5.8 with some enhanced features. Consumers may not make their decision until after they see the phone, but the reality is, they know what size they probably will prefer before it launches based on what’s comfortable to them and their budget or when they are eligible for an upgrade.

    For example, I prefer larger iPhones because the bigger battery and larger display, which in all likeliness, I will choose the 6.5 iPhone X, because that will be more in tune to what I have been looking for, regardless of the rumors or not.

    Sure you can discuss anything. I just think it's hard to make any concrete decisions now before knowing exact details like pricing, features, etc. If you've been jonesing for a bezel-less iPhone Plus, it makes sense that you can say you'll probably buy an iPhone X Plus this fall. The decision between the next iPhone X and 6.1" iPhone will probably be harder to determine now versus post keynote.

    I agree. But I think this question makes more sense post keynote versus now.

    I’m either going to sell my X to cover the cost of an SE2 depending on what features it has (assuming it is ever actually released) or keeping my X for another year. No way am I plunking down another grand for a phone this year. The upward price creep is getting out of control and we are getting less and less to show for it. I honestly find the idea of a smaller, simpler smartphone to be very appealing these days.

    I'm keeping my X until the 2019 cycle, perhaps longer. I kept my 6s Plus for nearly 21 months, as I had no interest in the 7/7 Plus models and was specifically holding out for the X. With the current flagship phone prices and overall spec plateau, I don't see the need to upgrade more than once every couple of years.

    I’m happy with my 8 plus for another year. I didn’t like the X I returned it and got the 8 plus. It suits my needs and I really missed the home button

    I have been waiting for something the size and shape of my 5SE to be released for some time now. Come on new SE!!

    I will be buying the X+ when it's released.
    But shouldn't that be the XI+?

    Will be interesting to see what they name it.

    If I upgrade it would be to the 2018 X. It would have to be a significant upgrade (and gold in color) as I'm very happy with the 2017 X. :) I definitely don't want anything larger than the current X.

    I've never used an iPhone for more than a year so I think I'll be getting the iPhone X 2018, maybe keeping my iPhone 8 as a beater device (which it pretty much is presently).

    Well, if might end up with the iPhone 8 if the iPhone... 8S/9 (?) will be way too big. The size of the iPhone 8 is the biggest that I am willing to accept.

    It’s not so much the marketing hype, but memory seems to be the bottle neck on iOS upgrades. So if I get an iPhone 8 now, performance of iOS 14 (for example) might be similar to that of my 6S. I don’t think that processor power is the limiting factor at the moment.

    I see a few people with iPhones 6, with 1GB of RAM, and they are struggling on iOS 11.
