The presentation of Tim Cook and company was as usual. As a result, we had an event filled with “wow’s”, proliferated with “incredible” and Apple’s typical “chill” philosophy.
Since this is the “S” model event, the new Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are not surprising to give us something new or fascinating. That is, the products are of quality and will certainly be well received in the market, however, they offer the typical ideology we saw on the iPhone X.
As much as the Apple lovers try to convince me, we have a terminal with a very identical design where the biggest change was in its size.
Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS MAX set the standard for 2019
The Apple iPhone XS Max has come to replace the Plus model. The Max model is the top of the Cupertino company. That is, this is the terminal where all the best that the company has to offer is integrated.
The smartphone arrives with a 6.5 “inch OLED screen with reduced margins. That is, the American manufacturer got the iPhone X, released last year, and stretched the terminal. The Apple iPhone XS Max offers what phablets lovers have been asking for for a long time. A large terminal with reduced margins.
The specifications of Apple iPhone XS and XS Max are, as expected, top of the range. The new terminal features the new Apple A12 Bionic processor which, in addition to giving us more performance, also has better autonomy.
According to the presentation, the new Aion Bionic is a 7nm chip and also has Neural Engine in order to improve the performance and graphics of the equipment. Both models come with 4GB of RAM.
The new Apple iPhone XS and XS Max cameras are 12MP + 12MP. One of these sensors arrives with f / 1.8 aperture and f / 2.4 aperture. The front camera is 7MP with aperture f / 2.2.
That is, it does not seem to change much compared to the previous model, however, we can only know when the device is in our hands for review. Honestly, I do not know to what extent these models will be able to surpass the quality of the P20 Pro. We will get faster (smartHDR) in photography a lot because of the quality of the new processor.
The new iPhones have the possibility of having Dual-SIM, however, like the clock, still will not work in Portugal. Hopefully, this will be the door for operators to invest in e-SIM’s.
Apple iPhone XS
The smallest model is basically an iPhone X with better specifications. The terminal has everything the MAX model offers, however, with a smaller ‘footprint’.
Honestly, there are not many differences between this Apple iPhone XS and the predecessor, at least at the design level. It is true that we have better specifications and new features, however, I do not think it is worth the investment of over 1000 €. That is, if in your pocket is an iPhone X.
