In just a week or so Apple will announce its 2018 iPhones lineup, where two of which will have OLED display, successors to iPhone X this year – an upgraded 5.8-inch model, said to be called the iPhone XS, and a larger 6.5-inch version that is reportedly going to be called the “iPhone Xs Max,” according to multiple sources.
One of the releases of the new iPhone will include an LCD model, making it a trio of iPhones releasing in 2018, set to kick into gear this year and as we trundle closer to the September 12th announcement we’ve seen more and more information pop up online.
The website last week was able to get its hands on an image showing the iPhone X successor and its larger cousin has now reported that it knows what the larger of the two devices will be called. The second larger 6.5-inch variant is named iPhone Xs Max, it was wondered whether the bigger screen size model would be called the same thing with buyers simply choosing a screen size at purchase.
There were also rumors speaking about the Plus moniker from previous years which would continue, but according to a new report, the new, largest ever iPhone will be called the iPhone Xs Max.
How? As per the publication claims that the new naming convention has been confirmed by “two sources familiar with Apple’s marketing plans” although obviously does not go so far as to confirm who they are.
So, it’s very much difficult to know whether this report without knowing the sources, but as the sources appear confident enough to publish the name we suspect it has little doubt that the publication could be wrong. Quite why Apple would ditch the Plus name in favor of Max is unclear, however.
In addition to the new moniker and large size, the iPhone Xs Max is expected to offer even bigger battery than the smaller XS. Both phones will also reportedly see an internal storage and spec boost over the current iPhone X, with a new A12 processor and 4GB of RAM.
We’ll find out for sure when Apple officially announces things at its event next week. For your sake, the company is set to introduce three new iPhones this month with the iPhone Xs and now iPhone Xs Max named. The 6.1-inch LCD iPhone is likely to be called the iPhone 9, or iPhone Xs Plus, a name that will help differentiate it from the more costly, OLED models also available.
Why not iPhone 9? It’s because Apple already eliminated the 9 number from its list, so announced iPhone X (10) in the past year. And it’s only my opinion and not official. Stay tuned for more!
