The iPhone XS has just announced at Apple’s ‘Gather round’ event on Sept 12th. The phone follows the design principals of the iPhone X, which means it features a 5.8″ display. However, there is a bigger “iPhone XS Max” as well this year.
Apple has had two sizes of iPhone devices since the iPhone 6 up until the iPhone 8. The base variants had a display size of 4.7-inches, and a “Plus” variant featured a display size of 5.5-inches. However, the iPhone X proved to be the best of both worlds featuring a 5.8-inch display in a body that’s almost equal in size of the smaller (base) variant of iPhone.
The iPhone XS has launched in two sizes as well. The base variant has the same 5.8-inch display as the iPhone X, and the “Max” variant comes with a massive 6.5-inch display.
iPhone XS Sizes
- iPhone XS: 5.8-inch
- iPhone XS Max: 6.5-inch
The leaked image of the iPhone XS also shows a significant difference in the size of the upcoming iPhone devices. The larger 6.5-inch iPhone XS Plus that the rumor mill is suggesting does sound outrageous, but it just might be true.
If Apple is going full screen on all iPhone devices this year, then it has a position to fill for the iPhone Plus size variants which the world has gracefully accepted ever since it launched in 2014. And going full screen on a large body of the previous generation iPhone Plus models means a huge display is coming to iPhone devices.
