The Apple iPhone Xs and Xs Max are available for pre-order from Technomobi.
The two smartphones in the Xs series comprise similar features, such as Super Retina displays, fast Face ID, the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone, and a breakthrough dual-camera system – all in a custom developed, surgical-grade steel body which is available in three finishes – including a new gold colour.
The iPhone Xs sports a 5.8-inch OLED display – which is as big as the iPhone 8 Plus, but in a smaller body – and delivers the most accurate colour in the industry, while the iPhone Xs Max comes with a 6.5-inch OLED display – the largest ever on an iPhone.
Both devices include an upgraded IP68 resistance rating for improved water and dust resistance, along with the most durable glass ever developed for a smartphone.
The iPhones also offer facial recognition with Face ID functionality, enabled by the true-depth camera system, which let users log in with only a glance.
The devices are powered by the intelligent A12 Bionic 7nm chip – the smartest, most powerful chip ever in a smartphone, offering up to 50% more graphics processing power – and packs a Neural Engine which dedicates machine learning to everything from augmented reality to photography.
Both smartphones also deliver Gigabit-class LTE for superfast download speeds and up to 512GB of storage, making it the highest-capacity iPhones yet.
The online retailer stated that pre-orders for the iPhone Xs start at R22,699, while the iPhone Xs Max start at R24,999.
Pre-orders for the iPhone Xs and Xs Max start on 21 September, while the official launch will take place on 28 September.
The new Apple smartphones will be also available on Vodacom contracts from 28 September 2018.
