From $75 to $277: Telcos release pricing for new iPhone plans


The starting price of the new iPhone XS, the successor to the iPhone X, is the same as the iPhone X's: $999. And believe me when I tell you, it succeeds.

For any iPhone X owners anxious about whether the discontinuation will dent the resale value of their phone, the Forrester analyst Thomas Husson has some reassuring words. It looks like Apple may have shelved the device for now, but it is still unknown why. These two iPhone's come with IP68 water and dust resistance and are available in gold, silver, and space grey colour variants. These are his thoughts on the new iPhone, and our observations...

'There's a lot of software involved with the LCD screen, as it's the first [LCD display] with a notch and full screen.

The iPhone XS is the successor of last year's iPhone X. The handset retains the same 5.8-inch OLED display, stereo speakers, dual-lens camera and True Tone display from last year's model. The new iPhone's come with one of the best OLED panels in the entire smartphone industry.

Apple is amplifying its war against the 3.5mm audio jack by no longer including an adapter with its older iPhone models.

Pre-orders for the $749 iPhone XR begin October 19th and the device won't hit the shelves until October 26th.

While the Snapdragon 835 from past year was no slouch, Apple's A11 Bionic chip proved to absolutely crush it. Qualcomm's made big improvements with the 845, but once again, the A12 Bionic has us drooling with its massive potential. Finally, the Neural engine now has 8 cores for machine learning and is nearly almost 10x faster.

The iPhone XS barely differs from its predecessor. Lastly, A12 bionic is the world's first 7nm based mobile processor that will reach masses.

As for storage, the XS offers three sizes: 64, 256, or 512GB.

Good news for all selfie and photo lovers, Apple says that the new neural engine powered in its latest offering helps the new phones take better and sharper pictures.

The other big difference in design is that since the iPhone XS features an all-display front, it lacks the Home button, and thus Touch ID. The resolution of the iPhone XS's screen is a massive 2436x1125-pixels at 458ppi. That will make movies pop even more.

Video playback: iPhone XS - Up to 14 hours. iPhone 8 - Up to 13 hours. Moreover, users can now record 4k footage at 60fps.

Lastly, the iPhone XS records stereo audio using the four built-in mics. As expected, iPhone Xs features dual-SIM functionality for using two phone numbers.

Counterpoint associate director Tarun Pathak said the pricing is likely to make India one of the most expensive places to buy the latest iPhones.

Samsung models like the Galaxy Note 9, with a 6.4-inch screen, and the Google Pixel XL 2, which has a 6-inch screen, set the bar higher.

How much will the new iPhones cost in Israel? The iPhone XS includes Face ID, Barometer, Three-axis gyro, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor, and Ambient light sensors. It's the iPhone X, but 'S'peedier, and with a fresh lick of paint. The phone's price starts at Rs 76,900, followed by iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max starts at Rs 99,900 and 109,900, respectively. In-store availability begins on Friday, September 21st.
