Apple introduces iPhone Xs, Xs Max & Xr but Huawei has zero chill

Apple introduces iPhone Xs, Xs Max & Xr but Huawei has zero chill

Apple also unveiled a new, bigger Series 4 Watch, that is created to detect heart problems and call carers or doctors when its wearer falls.

As with last year's iPhone X, this new phone would have a screen that runs from edge to edge, an effort to maximize the display without making the phone too awkward to hold.

Even if you're not springing for a new iPhone, customers will be able to download iOS 12 starting Monday September 17. iOS 12 features new Animojis, customized Memoji and a much-anticipated time management feature to help people use their devices less.

The iPhone XS Max features the largest screen Apple has ever produced on a mobile device.

The cheapest iPhone XR will be £749/$749 (Apple has a habit of not bothering to convert the price for worldwide consumers - the iPhone X was $999 in the U.S. and £999 in the UK). The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max also get a new Gold colour option, apart from Space Grey and Silver.

Apple unveiled three new iPhones on Wednesday in a bid to bolster its spot in the premium smartphone market, along with an upgraded smartwatch that takes electrocardiograms and detects falls. The iPhone XS Max fits into the same footprint as the iPhone 8 Plus.

The phones come with a 12-megapixel dual camera, and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, and can last up to 30 minutes in water up to two meters deep. This looks like a direct replacement of the smaller iPhone 8. Rather than luring millions of new iPhone users, Apple's goal these days is to steadily raise average prices, while expanding the total number of active devices to support sales of accessories and digital services like iCloud storage, streaming music and video.

Huawei unveils world's first commercial 7nm chipset Kirin 980
In addition, Kirin 980 utilizes the multi-pass noise reduction solution that removes artifacts without losing image details. Huawei says this equals around 30 percent better efficiency, especially when playing intensive games on mobile devices.

The new A12 bionic processor in the iPhone does image signal processing every time you snap a photo, and the iPhone combines those functions of the processor with the neural engine for a whopping 1 trillion operations per photo. However, the iPhone XR with a 6.1-inch LCD screen is the cheapest smartphone in the new series. There's also a new watch face which is customisable for different occasions.

"This is the biggest display ever on an iPhone", he said.

Available for pre-order: Friday, September 14 with availability beginning Friday, September 21.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red.

The XS will also have a dual camera system, which promises a sharper camera when combined with an A12 bionic chip inside.

The Series 4 also has a range of new health-focused features including one of the first ECG readers found outside of a professional clinic or hospital.

It's all nice and shiny, but here's the kicker - the iPhone XS Max only starts at S$1,799, and that's just for the something with a measly 64gb capacity.
