Since 2007, Apple has been releasing new iPhones every year with new features, designs, and technology breakthroughs. This year is no exception with Apple’s announcement of three new iPhones being released onto the market, the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xs Max, and the iPhone Xr.
Apple in late August accidentally leaked an image of the two upcoming iPhone Xs models that confirm we can expect to see 5.8 and 6.5-inch size options along with a gold color option.
iPhone XS / XS Max
The iPhone Xs and Xs Max are said to be a second-generation version of the iPhone X, with the same 5.8-inch, while the second can be thought of as an “iPhone X Plus,” also with a larger 6.5-inch OLED display. The 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhone Xs models are expected to continue to offer dual-lens rear cameras and 4GB RAM. The larger version will support a larger battery for longer battery life, and the 6.1 and 6.5-inch models are expected to offer dual-SIM functionality in some countries.The new iPhones are likely to include an upgraded A12 processor, improved LTE chips from Intel (OLED models only) that will support a faster LTE connection, and a USB-C to Lightning cable for faster charging speeds.
The iPhone Xr is Apple’s low-cost iPhone this year, with an LCD display and a single-lens camera to keep costs down in comparison to the higher-end OLED models. The 6.1-inch iPhone Xr and will be available in black, white, red, yellow, coral and blue colors.
