iPhone XS Max flying off the shelves
The iPhone XS Max features the biggest ever display on an iPhone. It sports a 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED screen with a 458ppi pixel density, 2688×1242 resolution, and True Tone technology. The screen is great for watching videos and playing games. Coming to specs, it’s nearly identical to the iPhone XS, though it has a larger battery and display. According to Apple, the XS Max battery lasts an hour and a half longer than iPhone X.
The device runs Apple’s custom A12 Bionic chip with an upgraded Neural Engine. Recent benchmark tests suggest it’s the most powerful smartphone in the world. Flagship Android devices lag far behind the latest iPhones. The XS Max also gets an upgraded camera with Depth Control, Smart HDR, and larger image sensors to take better photos than the iPhone X. Apple has also added dual-SIM functionality to this year’s flagship iPhones.
The iPhone XS Max is pretty expensive at $1,099 for the base model with 64GB storage. The most expensive version with 512GB storage costs a staggering $1,449. In some countries such as India, it costs as much as $2,000. However, the phone is selling like hot cakes since its launch despite being so expensive. According to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the XS Max is selling 3-4 times more than iPhone XS.
Kuo told investors that the 256GB has proved to be the most popular storage option among consumers as 64GB is too little and 512GB is too expensive. Smartphones have become the primary media consumption devices for most people, so they want higher storage. The analyst added that the gold and space gray colors were more popular than silver. Also, the 512GB storage model was constantly out of stock due to limited supply.
Ming-Chi Kuo expects Apple to sell 75-80 million units of the iPhone XS and XS Max through the end of this year. The iPhone XR, which is coming on Oct.26th, will further boost the sales. Overall, the analyst predicts the XS Max sales will be 5% to 10% higher than iPhone XS over the next two quarters.
