  • 'An evolution, not a revolution': Apple's new iPhones score only slightly above the X in reviews

The filings, which were first uncovered by Chinese blog MyDrivers, interestingly reveal that Apple's iPhone XS is equipped with a 2,658 mAh battery. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will go on sale in India from September 28 while the iPhone XR will go on sale on October 26. The iPhone XS retails for Rs 99,900 (64GB), Rs 1,14,900 (256GB) and Rs 1,34,900 (512GB), while the iPhone XS Max retails for Rs 1,09,900 (64GB), Rs 1,24,900 (256GB) and Rs 1,44,900 (512GB).

Apple quietly discontinued a few older iPhones to make room for the new models. However, there are two massive differences.

In India, one would have to shell out Rs 12,075 a month as zero-cost EMI for a period of one year to own the 512 GB variant of iPhone XS Max. According to iFixit, the reason for this is that in moving from a design that featured a dual-battery, the iPhone XS uses a single-celled L-shaped battery.

Last but not least, Apple's 6.1-inch LCD-equipped iPhone XR is slated to offer 1.5-hours or longer of additional battery life in comparison to its most direct predecessor, the iPhone 8 Plus. Featuring a 6.2-inch (17.5cm) 19:9 Max Vision Full HD+ display, Motorola One Power is powered by Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor along with 4GB of RAM. It comes with a more powerful GPU and CPU. But we got two different lineups, the XS and XR. iPhones still have the best chips, the A12 Bionic, but they still lag behind in displays, specially when they are compared to the likes of Samsung.

Apple also introduced iPhone XR. But if you look closely at the iPhone XS, you'll notice a peculiar hidden notch in the battery. The phone is iP67 water resistant.

This 6.1-inch liquid LCD display covers nearly the entire front of the phone and, with no home button in sight, also features Face ID technology - this unlocks the device simply by looking at it. But it will have single lens only. With both having a new 512GB storage capacity - also the largest on an iPhone - and the latter the biggest in the series so far, prices were also hiked. While the iPhone X used this for portrait mode photos and Face ID smarts, it topped out at 600 billion operations per second.
