We got to test the phone out in person, and reckon the display (which lands right in the middle, size-wise, of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max) might not reach the dizzying heights of OLED, but it remains a lovely smartphone display in its own right. At this time, there isn't any special discounts available with your preorder, but if you feel more comfortable with one of the carriers, here's where you can buy an iPhone XS or XS Max.

iPhone XS and XS Max Specs in China: iPhone XS is the smallest device among all the iPhones that have launched at the yesterday's Apple event. It packs a 5.8 inch Super Retina OLED display with the resolution of 1125×2234 pixels.

It is powered by the A12 Bionic CPU which is build on a 7nm processor with 6 cores coupled with 4GB RAM. There's a type A cable with support of 5W lightning charger.

Until September 21, Telstra will be offering bonus data and a $10 recurring monthly credit on $129 plans when customers stay connected for 24 months.

The other is a iPhone Xs Max 64GB plan for $134 per month.

In China, the iPhone XS supports single-SIM while iPhone XS Max brings support for dual SIM.

Will you be buying one of the three new iPhones?

As part of the device introductions, Apple's executive team briefly touched on the battery life of both iPhone XS and Apple Watch Series 4. In camera, iPhone features a 12 megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture size with wide angle lens. Based on six unspecified Arm processing cores, two high-performance and four low-power central processing cores arranged in Apple's "Fusion" variant of Arm's big.LITTLE layout and with a four-core graphics processor, the A12 Bionic also includes an enhanced Neural Engine - Apple's name for its deep-learning acceleration cores - which sees the core count quadrupled from two to eight with a compute throughput of five trillion floating point operations per second.
