Rumours and leaks suggest Apple is due to release as many as three new iPhones this September. The line-up is expected to include the 2018 reiteration of the Apple iPhone X, an iPhone X Plus variant with a bigger 6.5-inch screen, and a budget iPhone 9 variant with a 6.1-inch screen. And recently, renders of the upcoming iPhone 9 were shared on the Internet, giving us a glimpse of how the actual device may look.
The renders, created by designer Jonas Dahnert, were first published by Dutch website nieuwemobiel. The three detailed renders furnish a 360-degree view of the iPhone 9 compared to the iPhone X.
The renders show the iPhone 9 to be bigger than last year's iPhone X in size, which isn't surprising considering the 2017 Apple flagship packs a 5.8-inch display.

The images show a glass and metal build, with a bezel-less design inclusive of the top notch, much like the iPhone X. But the camera on the back seems like a single lens set-up, as opposed to the dual camera setup on the iPhone X.
Do note, these aren't official renders, and are just representative of the rumours and leaks we have had about the device thus far. So, take them with a pinch of salt.
According to analysts, the 6.1-inch iPhone 9 will come with an LCD display instead of the OLED variant in the X variants. It's also expected to be the cheapest device of the upcoming lot and has been tipped to be priced around $600 (Rs 42,000 approx).
