We’ve now got a name for Apple‘s next iPhone and images to match. The follow-up to the iPhone X will be dubbed the iPhone XS, according to Apple blog 9to5Mac, which also got its hands on some iPhone XS photos and images of the new Apple Watch.

According to 9to5Mac, which obtained its iPhone XS photos thanks to the FCC, the OLED version of Apple’s next phone will come in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch variants. The iPhone XS will also come with a new gold color option.  Apple is also expected to launch a third iPhone model, but this one will be cheaper, reportedly with aluminum edges instead of stainless steel and an LED display instead of OLED. It’ll come in several different colors and sport a 6.1-inch display.

That’s not all, however. We’ve also got a look at the new Apple Watch Series 4. The new Apple Watch features a larger edge-to-edge display—possibly 15 percent bigger than in the Series 3, thanks to a much smaller bezel around its sides. Its main watch face is also able to share a lot more information than before, with up to eight complications around its analog-style clock. It’s likely that Apple has multiple new watch faces to go alongside the new smartwatch.

Images of the Series 4 also show a new hole between the Digital Crown and the side button, which could be a new onboard mic for improved voice recognition. Those two side buttons also have a different look to their incarnations on previous Apple Watch models.

On Thursday, Apple sent out invites to its next media event. The launch event, which will see the debut of the new iPhone and likely the new Apple Watch as well, is set to take place Sept. 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California.
