iPhone XS Max – Full Phone Information
Though rather similar to the iPhone X in design, the new iPhone has a lot of amazing features that makes it the most powerful smartphone in the world. It’s the first smartphone in history to run on a 7 nanometer chip A12 Bionic – the proprietary chip by Apple Inc.
Due to the powerful CPU and GPU the iPhone XS Max doesn’t need hundred pixel cameras. The dual back camera has 12 megapixels and the front selfie one has only 7 megapixels.
The Li-ion battery lasts an hour and a half longer than that of the iPhone X. It is absolutely amazing for the 6.5-inch OLED HDR all-screen display featuring the 2688 x 1242‑pixel resolution with 458 ppi.
The iPhone XS Max supports 3G and 4G LTE. The smartphone features also the embedded SIM card or eSIM (requires carrier’s support). There are models with dual SIM for mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. Other wireless connections include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC.
The iPhone comes in three colors: Gold, Silver and Space Gray. The wireless charger is available for an extra cost.

- The iPhone XS Max is obviously meant for 4K HDR content and ‘heavy’ games with the AR features. It’s more a portable computer than a phone, though it cannot be plugged into a cradle to substitute the office working station like Samsung flagships can.
- The promo pictures look great but many photographers think, Apple used extra lenses to take them and the camera itself is not so good.
