“Details about the upcoming Apple iPhone lineup, due for release in September, are starting to leak out,” Patrick Seitz reports for Investor’s Business Daily. “Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang said Apple could use colors to differentiate its 12th-generation smartphone lineup. One of those handsets could be an upgraded version of the current iPhone 8 called the iPhone 8S, he said.”

“‘To target the younger consumer market, we believe that Apple could launch multiple colors for the iPhone 8S, including blue, yellow and pink, during the second half of this year,’ Zhang said in a note to clients,” Seitz reports. “Apple is likely to use candy colors with its new LCD-screen smartphone to differentiate it from two high-end OLED-screen models coming out at the same time, he said.”

“Apple also is likely to advance its push into augmented reality by adding 3D sensing cameras to the back of its new iPhones,” Seitz reports. “Today only the high-end iPhone X has a 3D sensor and it’s on the front of the device, with applications limited to facial identification.”
