Apple’s September 12 event is fast approaching, finally revealing its new lineup of iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and perhaps even MacBooks. A new leak out of Weibo claims to have the scoop on all these products, giving away their price and specifications.
Starting with the iPhone XS, the handset might be available in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED options. It may have the same glass and stainless steel design as its predecessor, but in a new Gold color finish to accompany the standard Space Gray and Silver. A dual-camera setup is a certainty, as is Face ID up front.
iPhone XS Specs and Price
Under the hood, the iPhone XS could run on an Apple A12 processor, sport 4GB of RAM, and carry 64GB/256GB/512GB of storage. ProMotion and Apple Pencil Support is unlikely. As for cost, the 5.8-inch model might start at $899 (roughly Rs 64498), while the 6.5-inch model may go for $999 (approx 71673).
The rumor refers to the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone as the iPhone XC. This makes it sound similar to the iPhone 5C, right down to the colorful paint jobs in red, orange, white, blue, and gray. Unlike the plastic 5C though, the XC is going to be built out of glass and aluminum.
3GB of RAM and an A12 chip might fuel things from the inside, with 64GB/256GB of ROM to support it. 3D Touch might be around after all, but this is again uncertain. The snapper at the back will be single, but Face ID is set to be around up front. Rates could begin at $749 (around Rs 53737), higher than other estimates.
The new MacBook series is reportedly going to be available in 12-inch and 13-inch versions starting at $999 (about Rs 71673). The 2018 iPad Pro may be sold in 11-inch and 12.9-inch variants at rates similar to the current lineup ($649 and $799, respectively). The Apple Watch Series 4 will probably stick to the current $329 rate as well.
We’ve heard most of these rumors before, but it’s still best to take this information with a pinch of salt. You never know what surprises Apple has planned for September 12.
