Apple Finally Announces The iPhone XS & XS Max – The Leaks Were A 50-50 Hit

It finally supports Dual SIMs And Up to 512GB of Storage

Apple’s next-gen iPhones have been anticipated for more than a long time now. From leaks to renders, it has been leaking through the cracks ever since the beginning of 2018. While we did expect yet another notched device from Apple following the release of the iPhone X, the phone that set the notch trend on fire.

After a series of leaks, the Apple Keynote has revealed everything regarding Apple’s next big thing. While the event did reveal a few new Apple devices, the iPhone is has the most attention, at least from us.

As we reported a few hours ago, the iPhone XS comes in two display sizes, a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch display. These devices come in gold, silver and space grey and come with IP68 certifications. The 5.8 inch XS is actually has a smaller footprint compared to the iPhone 8 Plus despite packing a larger HDR display. However, the display isn’t only larger, but these new displays also pack a 60% better dynamic range compared to the iPhone X’s display from last year. The 6.5-inch iPhone, however, carries the same footprint as the iPhone 8 Plus. 3D Touch hasn’t been ditched though as a few leaks suggested.

With the XS and XS Max, you definitely have 3D touch, something that we were expecting from last year’s iPhone X

The iPhone XS and the XS Max pack the new A12 Bionic chip and is the first to win the 7nm race. the A12 Bionic brings 50% faster GPU performance and faster neural processing compared to the A11 thanks to its 4-core GPU. Regarding the CPU, we’re looking at a hexa-core capable of activating all at once when something asks it to.

Regarding storage, yes, the 512GB leaks were correct. The iPhone XS and XS Max would come with up to 512GB of internal storage.

Apple has also been pushing on even more seriously with the whole AR game. Apple has decided to work with a number of companies to bring an AR showcase of their products in real time. Supported websites would allow users of the iPhone XS and XS Max to use their cameras to see what certain products look in real life.

On the front, the XS and XS Max pack a 7MP sensor with TrueDepth technology. In contrast, on the rear, the iPhone XS and XS pack a larger dual 12MP f/1.8 rear camera. The second sensor is there for telephoto shots. Just like the competition, the iPhone XS and XS utilize the neural engine packed in the A12 Bionic chip for optimal camera shots. As usual, the camera would take multiple shots in bursts analyzing the shows and exposure for optimal image quality. With the help of the neural engine, Apple has implemented a new trick with the iPhone XS and XS Max, dubbed as Smart HDR. These improvements also carry onto the portrait mode on the iPhone. Just like Samsung, the iPhone XS and XS Max allows you to change the depth after you take the shot as well.

Let’s talk about the battery on the iPhone XS and XS Max. Apple says that the larger footprint of the XS Max allowed them to pack a battery that allows one and a half hour longer. That’s all.

Also, the iPhone XS and XS Max finally comes with dual-SIM capabilities. However, the second SIM would be an eSIM unlike what it seems like. The Chinese version of the iPhone XS and XS Max, however, would pack dual physical SIM cards. That’s interesting for sure!

The iPhone XS and XS Max is said to start at $999 for the 64GB iPhone XS. While the XS Max starts at $1099 for their base storage. As mentioned before, would come in three finishes.
