The iPhone XS Looks Amazing, But Its Name Is Kind Of Weird

Let's get the pricing out of the way first because this is what potential new iPhone buyers would like to know more than anything else. These new models are also thought to have much larger screens than the 5.8-inch late 2017 model. Its new phablet will be known as the iPhone Xs Max, if you believe the information from insiders. The biggest expected upgrade in Apple Watch 4 is an edge-to-edge screen that creates about 15% more surface area.

iPhone XS Max could be the larger Plus-sized version of the iPhone XS and will compete directly with the Galaxy S9+, Note 9 and the yet to be announced Google Pixel 3 XL. According to earlier reports, the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will bear a form factor similar to the iPhone 8 Plus.

We're likely a year away from most of the 2019 iPhone announcements, but we've already seen several credible rumors emerge as we push toward the end of 2018.

One of the iPhones will be an immediate successor of the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch screen, the second will be bigger with a 6.5-inch screen and the third will be a cheaper, 6.1-inch iPhone.

There are reports that two of the 2018 iPhones will be named iPhone XS, according to CNet.

A picture was published at Slashleaks this week that purports to show the upcoming iPhone 9, an LCD-based model with a 6.1-inch screen, in three different colors: red, white, and blue.

Lastly, the base model iPhone 9, in comparison to the other two, is said to be a budget device in comparison.

Apple is hosting a press event on September 12 where it will likely unveil its 2018-iPhone range. Also with the current dollar-rupee currency fluctuation and the rupee continuing to fall against the U.S. dollar, Apple is likely to stick with a higher pricing in India when it launches the iPhone Xs series here. It also doesn't offer 3D Touch like the iPhone XS and XS Max, though it does come with True Tone technology and a P3 wide colour gamut. If before the name of the largest cell phone sounded like X iPhone Plus and was logical, today it is cancelled. The iPhones will get a new version of Face ID 2.0 as per some reports as well as wireless charging support. The iPhone XS Max will start at £1099. And at least one of them could be a colorful option, if a new leak is any indication.
