What’s the price of a $100,000 smartphone?
What about a $300,000 smartwatch?
And, if the answers to these questions don’t sound too outlandish, what about a brand-new iPhone XS?
The iPhone X and XS have a price tag of $999, and Apple’s marketing has already revealed that both models are available for $1,699 in the US and $1 (a mere $15 more) in the UK.
So what exactly does the XS cost?
And how much does it cost to buy one?
First, a quick refresher on the X specs.
At 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 835 CPU, a 4GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear camera and a 6MP front-facing camera, the iPhone X is among the most powerful devices available on the market.
Its camera, however, is a rather average-looking affair, with the iPhone’s 12MP primary camera having a resolution of 841 x 720 pixels.
That means that its pixels can take a pretty good photo, but it’s not as sharp as it could be.
Apple has also added a new camera filter that can allow the X to take photos of objects that are too bright, such as when using the iPhone Camera app.
Finally, the X’s display is 5.5 inches in diagonal, which is smaller than some other phones on the marketplace, but that doesn’t mean it can’t offer a decent viewing experience.
Its IPS LCD panel is coated with Gorilla Glass 4, a durable, scratch-resistant material that protects the display’s LCD display and reduces glare, unlike some other LCD displays that can damage the display.
While the iPhone 8 and X are the first devices to come with IPS displays, Apple hasn’t announced pricing for the X. The XS model comes with an AMOLED display, which will be a slightly different type of display.
AMOLed displays have a much higher pixel density than LCD displays, but they can still produce images that are sharper than their LCD counterparts.
The iPhone X has a resolution that’s 2160 x 1440 pixels, while the iPhone 9 Plus is 1080p at 2560 x 1440.
Apple also says that the X has an IP67 rating, which means that it can withstand a depth of up to 2 meters and withstand impact, which might sound like a lot of protection, but remember that these are just guidelines for what the iPhone will actually protect.
Apple is also promising up to 3.5 feet of waterproofing, which could be useful in cases where water is likely to be an issue.
The XS is also powered by an 8-megapixel rear camera, which uses an 8MP front camera.
It features a dual-LED flash that is designed to make images appear more saturated than traditional flash photography, so it can offer a wider field of view.
The camera also has a dedicated flash, which makes it easier to capture quick, quick images, and it’s also dust and water resistant.
On the front, the device comes with a 12-megahm battery that can be charged through the Lightning connector.
The charger itself is also removable, and you can use the phone as a standalone device, but the charger itself has a 3.3-inch headphone jack.
While the iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8s Plus are both available for purchase in the United States, the most affordable iPhone model currently available in the rest of the world is the $1 per month iPhone X.
