iPhone XS Max is Apple’s Most Powerful Phone (in 2018) with a Dual-SIM Support

iPhone XS Max is the bigger and more powerful version of iPhone XS.

The phone packs a big screen, long-lasting battery, and impressive design.

It has a massive storage and comes with other great features that include an improved camera and the super fast A12 Bionic chipset.

This is the first time an iPhone will come with a dual SIM.



As expected iPhone XS Max is the bigger than iPhone XS. The phone made its appearance with IP68, which means that it’s water resistant (up to 2 meters and for 30 minutes).

It has a dimension of 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7mm with a weight of 208 grams. You can get the phone in Space Grey, Silver or Gold. The Gold variant looks stunning, especially with the stainless steel band around it.

XS Max is crafted with glass both on the back and on the front. Apple claims it’s the most durable glass in a smartphone ever made.

The screen size is 6.5-inches which makes it the largest display Apple has ever put on an iPhone.

It’s equipped with an OLED display having a resolution of 2688 x 1242 pixels. Surprisingly, it has the same density as the smaller iPhone XS at 458 PPI.

Just like in iPhone X, you’ll also find a notch on the front of this device. It also uses a Zoom mode and the screen supports Truetone technology.

The screen also supports 60% better dynamic range which delivers vivid photos and videos.

Overall, the massive 6.5-inch screen will definitely make gamers and movie lovers enjoy the phone.



The iPhone XS Max has a dual camera setup of 12MP on the back. These cameras come with some improvements both on the software and hardware.

For example, one of the 12MP shooters has 2x zoom levels with a f/2.4 aperture.

Apple also introduced a new software on the camera called Smart HDR mode with zero shutter lag. This software allows you to capture multiple images with facial landmarking and segmentation.

Furthermore, you can now choose the amount of bokeh after you’ve taken the photo.

These new features enable the XS Max to take brighter and more colorful photos than other phones in its category.

Battery & Other Features

Although Apple didn’t mention the battery capacity, they promised that the Max offers a massive battery capacity that will last an hour and a half than the iPhone X.

The talk time is expected to clock 25 hours and the browsing time up to 13 hours. If this could be achieved, then the iPhone XS Max is definitely a good buy.

Other features on this phone are the dual-SIM support and the latest A12 Bionic processor, which will deliver a smooth performance.
