We are mere days away from Apple’s next special event.
Although rumours are swirling about the forthcoming iPhone announcement, Apple fans will not have to wait long to see what the official word from the tech giant is. The new iPhones and Apple Watch will be coming in a new Gold color variant. It also mentioned that the larger OLED phone (known as the “iPhone XS Plus”) will price “at a premium to the current iPhone X”. Interestingly, the LCD iPhone is yet to get a clear name. Adding an “S” to the previous model is the same naming convention Apple has used previously, but a Roman numeral really throws everything off. So the 6.5-inch iPhone Xs will likely be called iPhone Xs Max, while the regular 5.8-inch model will be called iPhone Xs.
To be a little more specific, Apple is said to be planning two iPhone X follow ups.
The proceeding 10 months have seen everything from Apple’s supply line to its internal marketing leak like a sieve, muddied somewhat by the usual baseless speculation, but the lineup of three phones has remained relatively constant.
What is the iPhone XS?
The iPhone 9, with its 6.1-inch LCD screen, will likely be the cheapest of the three, though the price could be higher than the iPhone 8.
According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple has chose to go with “iPhone Xs Max” for the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone coming down the pipe.
The iPhone X was available in a 64GB and 256GB version, both with 3GB of RAM.
All three models will drop the home button and, therefore, the TouchID scanning technology. The report states that Apple is going to introduce a significantly larger bezel on the upcoming Apple Watch, and will have new watch faces specifically designed for the new screen.
