Apple's flagship iPhone X may get a minor upgrade this year, but the company could expand its core design elements into a line of phones -- with names that sound like confusing clothing sizes.

Though the iPhone XC/XR will be based off the iPhone X, it will reportedly have some key differences such as an LCD Retina screen instead of OLED, an aluminum frame instead of stainless steel, a single rear camera instead of dual cameras, and possibly no 3D Touch.
