iPhone XS – Full Phone Information
Though similar to the iPhone X in design, the new iPhone has a lot of amazing features that set it apart from other mobiles. 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 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 half an hour longer than that of the iPhone X. It is absolutely amazing for the 5.8 inch OLED HDR all-screen display featuring the 2436‑by-1125‑pixel resolution at 458 ppi.
The iPhone XS 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 smartphone comes in three colors: Gold, Silver and Space Gray. The wireless charger is available for an extra cost.
