Huawei couldn't resist trolling Apple fans following biggest iPhone tradition

But it turns out that inside, it's the iPhone XS that diverges with an unusual new battery design. The awesome folks at iFixit have managed to obtain them as well and diligently pop up the devices to show the world what made these new phones tick. But a new configuration might more than make up for it: Apple is using a brand-new L-shaped single-cell battery instead of two separate batteries.

"It cost me more than $1,700", Quan Vu says smiling as he caresses his new iPhone XS Max. An edge-to-edge screen? You'll need the upcoming budget iPhone XR or one of its more expensive siblings.

iFixit and chip analysis firm TechInsights published this week, are among the first detailed teardowns of the phones, which reviews suggested were a subtle upgrade from the tenth anniversary iPhone X. For 2018, the iPhone XS Max is getting 4GB of RAM and previously, you could only find that much RAM on the iPad Pro. "Apple has been proven to have good quality products". While I would give you points for saying BlackBerry, it is, of course, Apple, and the people are queuing up to get their hands on either the iPhone XS or XS Max that were announced last week.

Apple launched the latest XS and XR series on September 12 in the United States, with prices ranging from HK$6,499 to HK$12,499 (US$832 to US$1,600), depending on their size and storage capacity.

The other glaring difference is the new A12 Bionic processor, which is Apple's first 7nm chip.

"People come here to buy Apple".

As noted, the really interesting change is in the iPhone XS' battery.

Among the hundreds of Apple fans who turned up at the Orchard Road store early Friday morning was 29-year-old Jonathan Lim who bought eight iPhones on behalf of family and friends. In the USA, the iPhone XS Max with 512 gigabytes of storage costs US$1,449.

Again, the Plus version has a larger screen and a second lens.

If you're on the fence, consider the iPhone XS or XS Max as a several-year investment. Its display lacks the vivid colors, contrast quality and resolution of the XS, but the price tag is nicer at $749.
