Leaks suggest Apple's entry-level phone may be named iPhone XC
Among the reveals we’re expecting to see three new iPhones: an updated version of the iPhone X, a larger version, and a cheaper, 6.1-inch LCD version, which a new leak suggests will be called the iPhone XC.
#Apple - #iPhoneXS - 6.1-inch iPhone (2018) leaks out in new red and blue color options https://t.co/mY9ufNnMyy https://t.co/L3qVuyjQ9M— /LEAKS (@Slashleaks) 1536222223000
The latest comes from Twitter user @Slashleaks, which point to 6.1-inch iPhone likely to be available in red and blue colour options.
If rumoura are to be believed, Apple will launch a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch model named the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The 'S' name would be a return to form for Apple, which has a history of adding the letter 'S' to iPhone models with updated components, new features and no major changes to the exterior design.

Apple is expected to release a larger version of the iPhone XS -- the iPhone XS Plus, perhaps -- as well as a less expensive version. It's worth noting that price hasn't been a major obstacle for the premium flagship so far.
One of the new 2018 iPhone models could have a rear-facing camera with a triple-lens array.
Since, the event's invitation has a gold circle that looks similar to its Apple Park campus, it serves a hint that there will be a gold version of the iPhone XS and XS Plus.
A slide purported to be from a Chinese carrier’s marketing presentation has been circulating on the Chinese social media site Weibo (via Macotakara and 9to5Mac), suggests that the lineup will be the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Plus, and the iPhone XC, which feels a bit more in line with Apple’s traditional naming conventions. The slide also lists the Chinese prices for the phones, which 9to5Mac extrapolates to $699 for the iPhone XC, $900 for the iPhone XS, and $1000 for the iPhone XS Plus.
