iPhone Xs, Xs Max & XR

Apple has launched the next-generation iPhones – the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and the iPhone XR.

The new series, as expected, comes from the creative design of the iPhone X. The major changes implemented are in the display and what’s under the hood of the three new iPhones.

iPhone Xs & iPhone Xs Max

Properly pronounced as iPhone 10s, Apple tells us that these devices are the most advanced iPhone as of today.


The regular-sized iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch display and the big brother iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display.

The Xs Max has a slightly bigger display versus the iPhone 8 Plus which has only 5.5-inch.

iPhone XR

The XR is Apple’s most affordable iPhone among the trio. But you can’t just look down on this iPhone, because it has all the nice features you want in a smartphone.


Series 7000 Aluminum body, a glass-sandwich enclosure is also IP67 Splash, Water, and Dust Resistant.

Dual SIM iPhones

The most advanced iPhones will now employ dual SIM technology. This feature has been popular in the Asian markets most especially in the Philippines.

The implementation of the dual SIM will be a nanoSIM + Digital eSIM (Google Pixel 2 has it).

But reports say, China and most probably the Philippines will get a physical dual SIM for these new iPhones.

Apple 64-bit A12 Bionic Chip

What’s powering the new iPhones is Apple’s own chip – A12 Bionic Chip which is the first 7nm chip. It is the most powerful smartphone processor today.

This is the component of the A12 Bionic Chip – a 4-core GPU, 6-core CPU, and 8-core design of Apple’s Neural Engine.

Better than the A11 chip found in the previous iPhone.

Camera

All of the three iPhones will sport a new camera. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max have a dual rear camera with 12MP wide and 12MP telephoto lens that comes with an improved quad flash. The iPhone XR has one rear camera setup but boasts of its wide-angle camera feature.

The selfie camera of all iPhones has a 7MP TrueDepth with Portrait mode, Depth Control, Portrait Lighting, and Smart HDR
