We've seen what all three phone look like, we know that the design of the iPhone X will be carried over, and we even know that the 5.8-inch OLED model will be called the iPhone XS. Those details have been known for quite some time now, but there has been plenty of speculation swirling around when it comes to the names of these devices.

Pictures of the much awaited iPhone XS were leaked a few days ago and there has been extensive buzz going around about the specifications of the new iPhones that are going to be launched in less than a week. According to the rumours and leaks doing the rounds, Apple will likely unveil three new iPhones on Wednesday, September 12th. There will be three iPhones Apple confirmed for 2019 dubbed as iPhone 9 (to be confirmed), iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. It will come in two sizes: the current 5.8 inches and a new, bigger 6.5 inches (sort of an iPhone X Plus, to use the old nomenclature). Unfortunately, other than the name, this report doesn't include any additional information just yet. Lastly, we can expect a dual-SIM variant of the iPhone XS. The report also suggests that the native resolution of the next generation Apple Watch will be 384×480 pixels on the 42mm model.

The thinking is that the iPhone XS Max won't have vastly different specs than the iPhone XS, which would be an interesting change from the Plus smartphones.

The only marginal difference between the iPhone 9 and the XS is the fact that the iPhone 9 has an LCD screen while the iPhone XSs have an OLED screen.

As we've said, an iPhone XS may very well be the most expensive iPhone Apple has ever released, which given past price tags, is really saying something. One of these cases, which the Redditor describes as a "6.1 iPhone case" appears to be only slightly taller and perhaps a little wider than the actual iPhone. Apple should be able to maintain thick margins on the new iPhone, as it is expected to eschew some costly features, including OLED screens that it has had trouble procuring in favor of widely available LCD displays. Apple has announced that the launch event will be on the 12 of September. You can expect the new Apple iPhone Xs Max to have a speedier processor too, as a new A12 chipset seems to have made its way in.
