Apple announced the successors to the last year’s iPhone X at the company’s annual September 12th launch event. The new iPhones that have been launched are the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone XR and also the new version of the popular wearable device, the Apple Watch Series 4. Let us have a look at iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.
The iPhone Xs Max is the the largest iPhone coming out of the company so far, with a OLED screen size of 6.5 inches. The phone is similar to the size of iPhone 8 Plus but has a wider and larger display. Both iPhone Xs and Xs Max house the most powerful processor, as compared to last year’s 10th anniversary edition iPhone X. These new phones will be driven by the A12 Bionic Chip, which Apple claims that it can process five trillion operations per seconds thus boosting the overall performance. Also, the Apps will open 30% faster.
The pixel density of these phones is breath-taking. The iPhone Xs comes with a 5.8-inch OLED screen with 2.7 million pixels, while iPhone Xs Max has 3.3 million pixels. You will get to use a 12 MP camera on both phones, the best part being it has dual optical image stabilisation with 2x optical zoom and a slightly faster sensor.
The iPhone Xs and Xs Max will come in variations of 64/256/512 GB storage and of course, the new dual-SIM support with an e-SIM option which will enable the users to interchange the SIM without having to remove the SIM tray. Apple promises that the battery life on these phones will be 90% longer than the iPhone 8. Both phones will have the new iOS 12 and will be shipped widely starting from September 21.
The iPhone Xs will cost from $999 and the iPhone Xs Max will cost from $1099 and shall be available in the colours of Gold, Silver and Space Gold.
