  • Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone

As Business Insider revealed, a few stealthy sites were able to dig into Apple's own website code to uncover details about the new phones - the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR - before the official launch. Two of these smartphones seem to look the same.

The iPhone Xs succeeds last year's flagship model with a faster A12 processor and updated cameras.

Apple just unveiled the iPhone XR at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, along with the iPhone XS and XS Max.

A Liquid Retina Display is a type of LCD display, now only found in the iPhone XR.

The iPhone XR will be available for pre-orders starting October 19th, while shipments will begin from October 26th in over 50 countries and territories, including India. If the user is immobile for more than a minute after the notification, the watch can automatically call for help "and send a message along with location to emergency contacts", Apple says.

To balance the record-breaking price of the new iPhone XS models, Apple will also launch a new cheaper smartphone, called the iPhone XR, though even it will cost a minimum of $1229 and up to $1479 for the 256GB model.

The screens on the iPhone XS and XS Max have 60% greater dynamic range than the iPhone X.

The new iPhones will produce better low-light photos because the main camera lens has a large micron pixel size of 1.4 - the only other phone with pixel size that large is the Huawei P20 Pro. Its aperture is f / 1.8. And further in time, we may also see Vodafone Idea LTD supporting the eSIM service.

If the "Portrait Mode" impressed you before, it now allows you to shoot with "professional-level bokeh", and adjust the depth of field of your photographs both during and after image capture.

With a bigger screen comes a whopping 3 million pixels, so you will view photos, videos, and games sharpest on the iPhone XS Max.

Indian users have always been demanding dual sim in the iPhone. The display also supports Apple True Tone technology, which uses six-channel light sensor to subtly adjusts the white balance onscreen to match the colour temperature of the surrounding light. New iPhones shipping to Hong Kong, China and Macau will all have SIM trays that can hold two SIM cards each.

Of course, one could always go for the smaller iPhone XS, but even so, you'll be hitting S$1,649 onwards. Because the concept of e-SIM is given here. Apple also announced that market excluding China would receive the eSIM + nanoSIM version of the iPhones, while the Chinese market will get a new model of the iPhones with a dual nanoSIM option.
