Apple is a few days with the presentation of the next generation of their smartphones and thanks to a filtering of the website of the company it has been possible to know that they will just be called iPhone XS. The announcement will be made in the Steve Jobs Theater September 12th Hipertextual will be there to tell it live; As that day arrives, this is all we know about the new phones.

Shape and sizes

Dozens of leaks have confirmed that the next iPhone comes in two screen sizes: 5.8 and 6.5 inches, and like the iPhone Xthey will use the screen OLED.

  • The iPhone 5.8 inch XS retains the same resolution as the current generation: 2435×1125 with 458 pixels per inch.
  • The 6.5-inch iPhone XS would have a resolution of 1242×2588 if the 458 pixels per inch were maintained, which would be logical in terms of production.

The 6.5-inch iPhone XS I would support horizontal modes just like the iPhone 6 Plus, 6S Plus and 7 Plus, with new features to simultaneously open two apps, such as an iPad.

As for the design, everything indicates that there are no significant changes: the notch, the rounded shape of the corners and the absence of edges.

We have already mentioned the existence of three measures for three months, the third it will not be an iPhone XS but a cheaper version with an LCD screen and different colors with a size of 6.1 inches.

iPhone XS, without plus

The confirmation of the name, iPhone XS, comes with the novelty, according to a report by Bloomberg that the company will put aside the use of the word bonus to describe larger models of the same smartphone.

They will just be iPhone 5.8 and 6.5 inch XS, as is now the case with the iPad Pro, which is available in two sizes, 9.7 and 10.5 inches.


Several reports and rumors suggested that Apple would use a camera with three lenses in 2018, but leakage from the production line indicates that will not happen this year, to be one of the novelties of 2019.

Even so, the same report from Bloomberg The above indicates that the company makes strong improvements in the general operation of the camera, although they are not detailed in which aspects.

Because the fundamental part of the operation of the iPhone camera is in the software, leaks are much scarcer or, in this case, zero. We have to wait until 12 September to know what to expect.

Performance: the new A12 chip

It is safe to wait for the arrival of A12 chip of just seven nanometers: more energy efficiency, significant performance improvements and less physical space in the device.

As it was seen in the WWDC 2018, the focus of Apple is on performance, not only on old equipment, but also in new and future, so that the iPhone XS will have significant speed improvements.

It has no direct relationship with the A12but reports have indicated that the new iPhone will also be faster when it comes to wireless charging, thanks to the integration of copper in the induction coil.

Besides, the most likely is that the A12 chip also the new iPad Pro that will certainly be announced on 12 September.


the iPhone XS in its two sizes they are offered in three colors:

  1. Space Gray
  2. silver
  3. gold

We discovered the new color in the images on the Apple website that leaked and published 9to5Mac. The illustrations show the two new models with stainless steel edges in gold.

Do not confuse these three colors with the new colors that are offered in the cheapest iPhone that Apple also plans to launch on September 12.


Good news for those who want to buy an iPhone this year, several reports indicate that Apple will follow a slightly more aggressive strategy for the sale of their smartphones this year, which will lower the price of the new iPhone XS:

  • iPhone XS 5.8 inches: From $ 899
  • iPhone XS 6.5 inch: From 999 dollars

Consumers interested in a slightly cheaper device can buy the new, cheaper iPhone, which will have the same shape as the iPhone XS, but with an LCD screen that costs analysts $ 699.

3.5 mm adapter, USB-C and dual-SIM

Several rumors from several independent reports indicate that Apple will offer the iPhone XS with support for dual-sims, at least in some countries, which means that you can install two SIM cards at the same time, although some say they will actually have an Apple SIM card have its internal components, such as with the iPad.

The advantage of the Apple SIM is that you, from the operating system itself, can choose the operator to use, without having to physically change the phonecard and pay immediately.

On the other hand, it is likely that the Lightning cable that comes with this year is USB-C like the charger, apart from the traditional USB-A connector. Finally, with the popularization of AirPods and other wireless headphones, it is possible that Apple stops with the 3.5 mm adapter.
