IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression | ETPanache

Schiller did not that due to the limitations on eSIM availability in China, Apple will be releasing special models of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in China that provide support for two physical SIM cards in a single slot - one on each side of the SIM tray. So without further ado, let's dive right into the good stuff!

Apple is expected to ship 127 million iPhones, new and old, in the second half of 2018, achieving a modest volume growth over the same period past year. Both devices come with a surgical-grade stainless steel frame and offer the same premium look and feel that the company introduced with iPhone X. Well, we've heard these claims before to be honest. Build it, and they will come: and pay for it too. Just as had been rumored for some time now. The iPhone XS (pronounced "ten ess") and XS Max are the updated version of last year's iPhone X. The XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display, while the XS Max has a 6.5-inch display.

We got to test the phone out in person, and reckon the display (which lands right in the middle, size-wise, of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max) might not reach the dizzying heights of OLED, but it remains a attractive smartphone display in its own right. Below you can check iPhone XS, XS Max and XR price in China along with specs, features and all other details. The A12 Bionic is faster and more efficient than before and packs Apple's own GPU as well as an improved neural engine.

Also, HDR has been removed, and upgraded to being a more "Smart HDR".

Why Barcelona failed to sign one of their top targets
However, Overmars is adamant de Jong will not be leaving the club, even if Barca were to make an improvement on Tottenham's offer. Overmars, the former Arsenal forward, also claimed that Barca's offers were "unfortunate" and that they did not "value De Jong".


Apple hasn't publicly explained itself, though chief executive Tim Cook may explain the firm's thinking in a future earnings call. The OLED display now boasts a 60% greater dynamic range compared to last year's iPhone X.

The XR has the same wide-angle camera as the XS, and the same iteration of Face ID.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible. This storage option is available on both the iPhone XS / XS Max, but not the iPhone Xr. The XS comes with a better chip under the hood and is more waterproof, but for most people, the differences will feel incremental.

On Thursday evening we reported that Apple had unveiled three new phones that are set to go on sale this month. Chinese users however, will be able to actually use two physical SIMs with the new phones. Watch this hands on video to know more. Its Pre-orders will begin on 19 October band the phone will start shipping on 26 October.
