There has been a lot of speculation about what Apple’s new iPhone will be called and now it looks like we have some proof of what these three new smartphones names are. The handsets will be called the iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
The news of the official names for Apple’s new iPhones was discovered by developer Steve Troughton Smith. Someone decided to leak the Gold Master (GM) build of Apple’s iOS 11 to MacRumors, 9 to 5 Mac and some other sites.

The iOS 11 GM also revealed some details about the three handsets, the iPhone 8 will come with 2GB of RAM, the iPhone 8 Plus will come with 2GB of RAM and the iPhone X 3GB of RAM.
So the new OLED iPhone will be called the iPhone X and the other two LCD handsets will be the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. All three handsets will come with Apple’s new A11 mobile processor. This new processor is expected to give around 30 percent improvement in performance.
We know that the new iPhone X will feature facial recognition for unlocking the device and also for Apple Pay. We presume that the new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus will also come with the feature. It is not clear as yet on whether any of the three handsets will come with fingerprint sensor, rumors have suggested that they wont.
Apple will get rid of the home button on the iPhone X, it is not clear as yet on whether this will also be removed from the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. All three handsets will come with iOS 11, we will have more information about all these new iPhones at Apple’s press event tomorrow. We are also expecting to see a new 4K Apple TV and a new Apple Watch.
