As per the report by Macotakarathe iPhone X Plus, which is expected to have a 6.5-inch display, will fit in a body that is the same as that of the iPhone 8 Plus. To recall, the iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen along with huge top and bottom bezels. So it can be a reasonable assumption that the iPhone X Plus, with its reduced bezels, would be nearly the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus and have a bigger display.

This was true even for the iPhone X which had dimensions of 5.65 x 2.79 inches with a 5.8-inch screen and the iPhone 8 which had nearly the same dimensions of 5.45 x 2.65 inches but had a smaller 4.7-inch display.

Macotakara, also says that iOS 12 will have support for horizontal Face ID unlocking. Currently, the Face ID on the iPhone X works only in vertical mode. Obviously, nothing has been confirmed and is mere speculation. However, we shall be updating you on the story as it develops.
