This time the design from the front is different with respect to previous iPhones. A wide notch dominates the screen housing the selfie sensor along with IR camera and Dot projector and other sensors.
In addition to the 64GB and 256GB models, Apple will also provide a 512GB model. These new iPhones will be available in Gold, Silver, and Space Gray colors. The base model iPhone XS Max with 64GB ROM costs $1100/ ₹1,09,900 while iPhone XS will cost $1000/ ₹99,900.
The iPhone XS features a 5.8-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels. These specifications are very similar to those of the iPhone X with the difference that the new model uses a more resistant glass. In addition, Apple claims that the Xs screen is 60% more dynamic compared to the iPhone X. At the same time, the XS is more water and dust resistant than X. On the other hand, the iPhone Xs Max, features a 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED screen with a resolution of 2,688 x 1,242 pixels. The Xs Max is almost identical to the iPhone 8 Plus, although the screen is a bit larger.
The new iPhone X features great enhancements that include broader stereo sound and better face identification with faster algorithms. Apple is also introducing the first 7nm chip called A12 Bionic. Apple says the new chip has 6.9 billion transistors, a 4-core graphics card, a 6-core processor, and an 8-core neural network. The A11’s neural motor was able to make 600 billion operations per second. The A12 can do 5 trillion. The American company also says A12 will allow “new experiences that were previously not possible.”
