'You'll need it': Huawei hands out power banks to queuing iPhone fans


Additionally, Apple has also partnered with e-commerce portal Flipkart, and customers can place pre-orders for the various iPhone XS models starting at 12:01 AM.

Hours after the first video, TechSmartt also posted a video that tests whether the iPhone XS and XS Max are really as waterproof as Apple claims (which is up to IP68 specifications) - or even better.

The iPhone XS Max starts at R23 999, and goes all the way to R31 999 for the 512GB variant.

It's an especially confusing moment: Apple will sell no fewer than eight iPhone models in 2018.

"The iPhone XS and XS Max follow in the footsteps of S-year iPhones - they're faster, with better camera hardware ... but except for dual SIM support, there isn't a brand-new feature like Touch ID or 3D Touch this time", CNET's Scott Stein said. Likewise, buyers will have to shell out Rs. 1,09,900, Rs. 1,24,900, and Rs. 1,44,900 for the 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options of the iPhone XS Max, respectively.

Speaking about the launch of the new device, Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said: "iPhone XR helps us reach even more people with the latest iPhone innovations".

It was only past year that they moved to OLED displays with the iPhone X. Whereas Android flagships have them for quite sometime now.

Apple has officially stopped selling the SE. The iPhone Xs Max offers a much bigger boost in the battery department, with a 3,174mAh offering.

While many Android phones are making the jump to 6GB and 8GB of RAM, Apple is remaining more conservative. Oh, and it comes in lavender. The new iPhone XS models actually have a OLED display with a resolution of 2436×1125 and a ppi of 458. And you'll be $200 richer.
