The radical changes came with the iPhone X last year. So, while the elegant new iPhone XS Max that I’ve been testing since Wednesday (along with the XS) has, by far, the largest display and is the most expensive and best iPhone ever, Apple’s latest handsets, good as they are, don’t move the needle all that much.
The iPhone XS doesn’t look dramatically different from the iPhone X, although this time out it’s IP68 certified for dust and water resistance. It has improved stereo speakers and no headphone jack.
Images of the alleged Nokia 9 and Nokia X7 have leaked online, hinting at displays without the notch. Nokia 9, HMD Global's allegedly upcoming flagship, has been a part of the rumour mill for some time now. While most of the previous leaks have claimed to show the back panel of the handset, the freshly leaked image of the smartphone's display panel shows its design at the front. Meanwhile, the front panel of another Nokia handset, allegedly called Nokia X7, has also surfaced on the Internet. Interestingly, unlike the Nokia X5 and Nokia X6, the Nokia X7 does not seem to house a display notch.
Cautious and clumsy consumers should be prepared to pay more for protecting the new, bigger iPhones.
At its annual September event, Apple introduced three new iPhone models the iPhone XS (pronounced "ten-ess" not "ex-ess"), iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR (pronounced "ten-are" not "ex-are"). The new models are successors to last year's iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
