Apple iPhone XS Max: An Overview of Apple’s Biggest Phone Yet
Apple recently announced three new iPhones which are iterations on last year’s flagship iPhone X: XS, XS Max, and XR. But the iPhone X Max stands out in a notable way as it is the largest among the pack with its 6.5-inch display. It also has a one-of-a-kind name, as it is the first iPhone to have the “Max” moniker, completely different from its predecessors that wield the “Plus” suffix. Here are some key things you need to know about the Apple iPhone XS Max price, release date, and specs.
iPhone XS Max Release Date
The iPhone XS Max will be up for pre-order on September 14 and go on sale on September 21.
iPhone XS Max Price
The iPhone XS Max will come in three storage variants – 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB, and retail for $1099 (~RM 4,545), $1249 (~RM 5,165), and $1449 (~RM 5,992), respectively. It will be available in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.
iPhone XS Max Specs
Much like the iPhone X, the XS Max retains the notch at the top of the display, while sporting a larger 6.5-inch display. Not only that, it has a bigger battery life, dual SIM capability, better cameras, and the A12 Bionic chip.
iPhone XS Max Design and Build
While the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has a larger dimension at 161.9 x 76.4 x 8.8mm, the iPhone XS Max has a bigger display at 6.5 inches. It sports an all-glass chassis with a steel frame that joins the front and back panels. What’s more, it is IP68-rated, meaning it can withstand being submerged for up to two meters of water in 30 minutes.
iPhone XS Max Cameras
Although the iPhone XS Max comes with the same dual-camera setup as iPhone X, Apple has included a much-improved camera software – the Smart HDR mode. This takes the best bits of each photo (of the same shot) to come up with the best-exposed image.
iPhone XS Max Processor and Battery
Comprising a hexa-core CPU and a quad-core GPU, the all-new A12 Bionic chip is what powers the iPhone XS Max. Apple called it the “most powerful and the smartest” chip, which is 30% faster than last year’s iteration. In terms of battery life, the XS Max could house the largest battery capacity yet, although its figures are unknown as of the moment.
