Apple is set to announce its new sets of iPhones following the iPhone X success this September 12. As much as Apple wants to keep things secretly, leaks after leaks, we might have known how much the next set of high-tech smartphones priced in the market.
Let’s start things off with what to expect in the new set of iPhones. There will be three iPhones Apple confirmed for 2019 dubbed as iPhone 9 (to be confirmed), iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. This year’s iPhones will exhibit a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch super-sized design.
At a glance:
- iPhone 9 (to be confirmed)
- iPhone XS – 5.8-inch, OLED model.
- iPhone XS Max – 6.5-inch
If you noticed, Apple uses a new name to brand its next wave of iPhones, ditching the “Pro” tag to “Max.” It is believed that this year’s iPhones will showcase a Triple-Lens Camera, and of course, following the iPhone X’s path.
With only six days left before Apple presents its new set of high-class smartphones, pricing has been the top discussion in the panel. Forbes reported that Apple might retain its US pricing ($699, $799, $999 respectively) based on EU’s (€799, €909, €1149). Take note, EU prices include sales tax.
However, CNBC reports that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max might be priced higher than expected. According to analyst Wamsi Mohan, iPhone XS prices might start at $999, while iPhone XS Max would reach up to a booming $1,049.
The iPhone X ($999) reached nearly 30 million sales since its release last September, says Canalys. The iPhone X’s success proves that consumers are willing to spend more than $1,000 to get a hand of Apple’s latest technology.
