Welcome to the latest iPhone trio. Yes! That’s the first word we deserve for the arrival of the three new iPhone models introduced by Apple this year. The three models are iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, and iPhone XR .
Taking place at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, United States , Apple is very confident to show directly some of the excellent features in the three new iPhone models. Not only reviewing the screen design, Apple also revealed the contents of the innards of each model.
Apple iPhone XS Max
iPhone XS Max is an iPhone model that has the largest screen size. This smartphone comes with a 6.5-inch AMOLEDscreen . The aspect ratio is 19.5: 9 with a very thin bezel and still has bangs on the top.
This new screen basically has the same width as the 5.5-inch panel of the iPhone 8 Plus. But the extra height can accommodate additional content. The new “Super Retina” screen is able to present an equivalent pixel density of 458 ppi and has a resolution of up to 1,242 x 2,688 pixels.
For smoother operation, the touch screen has a 120 Hz refresh rate and the screen also supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Even so, Apple has managed to increase the dynamic range by 60 percent.
As expected, Apple is now “turning off” the Touch ID feature . The biometric feature offered is only Face ID . And Apple also boasted that its 3D face scanner was optimized so that it had a faster performance compared to the previous generation.
For business photographing, Apple immersed a dual camera on the back that has a resolution of 12 MP + 12 MP . The primary lens has a new sensor with larger pixels, which is 1.4um and an aperture of f / 1.8. Meanwhile, telephoto lenses have an aperture of f / 2.4, 2x optical zoom and OIS support.
The updated bokeh rendering allows the user to adjust the depth of the field after the photo is taken. The strength of Bionic A12 chipset as the brain of the iPhone XS Max also offers Smart HDR features and the resulting photos will have a perfect dynamic range.
The embedded front camera has also been upgraded. The 7 MP RGB sensor claimed by Apple has increased in speed. In addition, video recording now supports stereo audio and of course with a wider dynamic range.
Speaking of the material used, Apple packed the iPhone XS Max with a stainless steel chassis and a new formula for scratch-resistant glass. In addition, Apple has also pinned IP68 certification so that the smartphone is safe to last for 1/2 hour under 2 meters of water.
For matters of storage, the smallest capacity is 64 GB and the highest is 512 GB. Now, the 256 GB option has become a middle ground for Apple. Yes! You could say the highest capacity, namely 512 GB is the answer from Apple to the challenges posed by the manufacturer of Android smartphones.
Apple iPhone XS
Another model that was also introduced was the iPhone XS. That said, this is the real S model. This smartphone is built on hardware and features from last year without changing too much. His brain is embedded with Apple A12 Bionic which is guaranteed to jump over Android flagship in terms of performance.
Not unlike the iPhone XS Max, the highest storage option is 512 GB. While the most basic has 64 GB of storage. Again and again, the 256 GB option is the middle ground offered by Apple to its customers.
For your information, Apple A12 Bionic itself is the first 7nm chipset that is expected to make a lot of surprises in the smartphone market. The design configuration offered is 6-core (2 large + 4 small) plus the latest 4-core GPU and 8-core neural engine.
Apple itself promises, that this homemade chipset also offers 15 percent faster and 40 percent more power efficient than the Apple A11. In addition, the GPU offers 50 percent higher performance and higher memory bandwidth thanks to lossless compression.
Neural engine only has twice the number of cores compared to the previous generation. But it was very strong and Apple also confirmed that all of that could do 5 trillion operations, up from 600 billion operations.
The 5.8-inch AMOLED screen size has the same resolution as the iPhone X model, which is 1,125 x 2,436 pixels. While the pixel density is the same as the iPhone XS Max, so is the refresh rate. Apple also packs the iPhone XS with stereo speakers.
About color, both the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS models, both offer the same color choices. There are three choices of colors offered, namely Gold, Silver and Space Gray . In addition, Apple also introduced the Dual SIM Card function to this new iPhone.
Apple iPhone XR
iPhone XR is the third model introduced by Apple. Unlike the previous two models, the iPhone XR is packaged by Apple with an LCD screen. Even so, the smartphone aspect ratio is 19.5: 9. Apple has a new name for this screen, namely Liquid Retina .
While the pixel density is the same as the iPhone 8 Retina screen (326 ppi), the resolution is 822 x 1,1792 pixels (so it’s under 1080p). This LCD panel also has a 120Hz refresh rate and a wider color gamut than the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XS supported AMOLED screen.
The iPhone XR also only has a single rear camera. Basically, the single camera used is the main XS camera module and has 1.4μm pixels. Thanks to the Apple A12 Bionic chipset, all advanced shooting techniques are available.
For embedded biometric security features, Apple also inserts Face ID scanners. In fact, it can be said, the three new iPhones introduced by Apple, including the iPhone XS have used the updated True Depth camera .
So, what about the storage that Apple embedded into this affordable smartphone? Unlike iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS, Apple offers storage options that are on the iPhone XR a little different. The lowest is 64 GB and the highest is 256. In the middle there is 128 GB.
One interesting thing, Apple offers more color choices for the iPhone XR. Of course, this reminds us of the iPhone 5C and the colors offered are Blue, Yellow, Coral, Black, and Product Red .
