These new set of iPhones that was launched recently has indeed shifted from the norms, in terms of iPhone design we have been used to since 2014. The iPhone X from last year has indeed been a blueprint for Apple’s future models. This also include features such as Face ID instead of a fingerprint reader, and notches. In this post we shall be looking at the Apple iPhone Xs Max features, full specification, price and release date.
Apple iPhone Xs Max Features
The Apple iPhone Xs Max maintains he record of being the largest iPhone in history, as it came with an expansive 6.5 inch AMOLED screen. The bezels have dissolved, giving the screen a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and leaving behind the notch. The screen has the same width as the 5.5 inch panel you will find on the iPhone 8 Plus, but its extra height accommodates additional content.
The new Super Retina display of the Apple iPhone Xs Max maintains the 458ppi pixel density of the iPhone X by increasing the resolution up to 1242 x 2688 pixel. For smoother operation, the screen’s touch sensing layer runs at 120Hz (but the UI still renders at 60fps). The display still supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, but the dynamic range has been increased by 60%.
Touch ID has become obsolete, so the Apple iPhone Xs Max came with Face ID. Apple has no plan yet to move the fingerprint reader to the back, hence, leaving the 3D scanner as the only biometric authentication method. A faster security enclave has sped up facial recognition compared to the first generation.
The dual 12MP camera of the Apple iPhone Xs Max was completely revamped. The main wide-angle shooter has an all-new sensor with larger pixels – 1.4µm, up from 1.22µm. The aperture remains at f/1.8. The telephoto camera uses a 12MP sensor, f/2.4 lens with 2x optical zoom (and it has OIS).
The updated bokeh rendering allows you to adjust the depth of field after a photo has been taken.The power of the A12 Bionic chipset has been put to use in the Smart HDR feature. It starts with zero shutter lag, the camera captures a 4 frame buffer. It also captures interframes, plus a long exposure, all of which is merged into a single photo with awesome dynamic range.
The selfie camera of the Apple iPhone Xs Max was also revamped as well. The 7MP RGB sensor has improved in speed if not in resolution. Video recording now supports stereo audio – finally! – and wider dynamic range.
The Apple iPhone Xs Max came with 64GB base internal storage, and the highest capacity is now 512GB which now challenge most Android flagships. The 256GB internal storage is now the mid-level. See the full specification below.
