Has the official invitation been sent out by Apple for the event? If not, those dates are just rumored at this point.

Yes it's just rumours but from credible sources. No one will launch anything on Sept 11th or 13th so I think that's why they're saying it'll be the 12th. It's always been the 2nd week of Sept....

If there is any model that will be equipped with dual sim I am getting that one, otherwise I'll likely pass this year.

Why is the shape of the battery mentioned? Is that important?

Of course... the newer L-shaped battery holds more charge over last year's X which had 2 rectangular batteries with separators. No separators, bigger charge.

"The Cupertino based tech giant is reportedly planning to bend fully in L-shape and equip the next-generation heirs of the iPhone X with single cell L-shaped batteries. This clearly means that it will hold more charge (no separator needed) and charge faster with a higher capacity over the iPhone X’s current battery. The iPhone X uses two rectangular batteries in an 'L' configuration. The current iPhone X sports a 2716 mAh battery, larger than the iPhone 8 Plus' 2675 mAh single-cell rectangular battery."


Current iPhone X configuration.

Ming Chi Kuo - And the models with the OLED screens (successors to the iPhone X, we'll call them the iPhone Xs and XS Plus, for the sake of argument) will offer an L-shaped, 3,300-3,400mAh battery. That is 25% more capacity than the iPhone X.

macworld.uk - Fast charging

The iPhone X boasts that it's "fast-charge capable", but the charging unit bundled with the phone won't blow your socks off with its speed. Well, according to ChargerLab, Apple is going to include an altogether more powerful charger with the late-2018 models.

"According to our exclusive sources inside production lines," says the site, "it will ship with an 18W USB-C to Lightning fast charger... Using a USB-C for power delivery should result in significantly faster power delivery compared to the USB-A ports that Apple had been using since 2007."

(Speculation about a switch to iPhones being bundled with USB-C instead of USB-A cables was further enflamed in mid-May 2018 by news of a price drop to the USB-C-to-Lightning adaptor that Apple currently sells separately.)

Friend will be getting the 6.5" OLED.

He currently has the X with 256 GB. Maybe it'll become mine for $500?

It may be the first of what will be many threads discussing the matter, but considering the names nor the launch dates are confirmed, I'm not sure it is fair to call it "official" at this moment. But I get it, you want to own the thread and have all the up-votes that go with it, and that's ok.
