Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max - Specifications And Price In Nigeria, Kenya & India 1


Apple just launched the new iPhone XS on Wednesday September 12 ,2018. The Cupertino based company just announced the successors of the iPhone X – The iPhone XS with a 5.8 inches display and iPhone XS Max with 6.5 inches.(P.S- It’s pronounced iPhone ten S)

According to Apple CEO, Tim Cook “The iPhone X has changed the industry” and became the “number one smartphone in the world, Today, we’re going to take iPhone X to the next level. I’m excited to show you what is by far the most advanced iPhone we have ever created.

Despite the fact that I am a huge Android Fan, I’m pretty curious to know what Apple has in store for us as many Android OEM’s took a cue from the iPhone X last year by ripping off the notch and Google has added gestures similar to the the one on iOS 11 to Android Pie 9.0.

Design and Build Of The iPhone XS & iPhone XS MAX

The iPhone XS sports a gold finish (as well as silver and space grey), making it according to Apple “the most beautiful iPhone They’ve ever made”, and is covered with a new glass that is the “most durable ever”. It’s an impressive move from Apple but it doesn’t change the fact that iPhones are still fragile

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max more waterproof, and can stay 2m under water for ten minutes.
However most of these specs are the same thing we have on the iPhone X . However the screen is bigger while the phone is smaller. It apparently has a 60% greater dynamic range than the old iPhone X.

The iPhone XS Max is the same size with the iPhone 8 Plus but comes with an extra inch of display, 
Under the hood is an A12 Bionic Chip as the processor and you now have 512GB of built in storage. another improvement to the device


Camera Specifications

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max comes with a 12MP wide-angle camera, and a 12MP telephoto camera, with an “improved True Tone flash”. On the front is a new 7MP selfie shooter.

There’s also Smart HDR feature.This brings a few photos of different exposure together. The way it does that is by constantly shooting a four-frame buffer, with different exposures, so that the second you hit the shutter lens, it’s already got all the information it needs for a full HDR image. Thumbs up to Apple for this. We couldn’t have asked for a better camera

For video, the camera can now record stereo sound, and takes very high-quality low-light footage. But no video stabilization yet, another place where  Some Android brands beat iOS once again.

Other Features

The iPhones XS and XS Max Ships with dual sim support, through something called “dual sim dual standby”. It doesn’t work with two real Sim cards, though – just with Apple’s eSim support for the second Sim. So I really can’t say it will work in Nigeria.

iPhone XR Specifications Summary

The iPhone XR is made from aluminium and glass, and with an edge to edge screen similar to the iPhone X.
The display is an LCD, Display and branded as the “Liquid Retina” display (the iPhone XS and XS Max has a “super retina”, if you’re keeping track), and measuress 6.1 inches edge to edge.

However, phone doesn’t come with 3D Touch, the pressure-sensitive feature found in every previous iPhone since the 5S. Instead, it’s got “haptic feedback”, which basically means it will click if you hold your finger on a button for a while just like some old Android devices.
Inside is the same chip as in the iPhones XS: the A12. And the front camera is also the same 7MP camera.

It doesn’t have 2 cameras like the iPhone XS and XS Max. I don’t think it needs the telephoto lens for the fancy new features, because it can actually fake them by using just AI.
Battery life is “an hour and a half longer than the iPhone 8 Plus.
That said let me summarize this by rounding up the specs and price of the iPhone XS , iPhone XR  and iPhone XS Max in Nigeria, Kenya And India.

Here’s how Huawei hopes to launch a ‘new’ smartphone with Google Services

Published

Here's how Huawei hopes to launch a 'new' smartphone with Google Services 16

Without mincing words, if you are using a Huawei mobile smartphone, you can not get access to any Google services whatsoever, meaning, you possibly are going to face tremendous odds.

You’re on your own! Lol

Here's how Huawei hopes to launch a 'new' smartphone with Google Services 17
Huawei was blacklisted by the US government back in May 2019 over alleged national security concerns. As such, the Chinese OEM lost access to Google for its new phones, causing a major plunge in international sales.

More than a year later, Huawei has still been trying to get back to normal but with so much struggle. Well, it seems a new strategy is reportedly in place now.

What has happened since the Trade Ban?

If you can remember well, the P30 series launched early 2019 was the last bunch from Huawei right before the company was banned from doing business with Google. This, of course, was alongside other American companies but the focus seemed was obviously on that one scenario.

Many external claims after the launch of this device have also solidified the decision ruling Huawei from using Google services on their future devices.

A certain anonymous photographer also mentioned how Huawei used a pre-existing image of the moon to cook up fake real-time images of the moon when Huawei P30 Pro users exceed the 10x zoom level.

Total photographic chicanary!

Huawei plans on releasing new P30 edition

Though, this discovery wasn’t totally proven, we all know this didn’t help the Huawei fight against the trade decision ban at all.

New flagship line-ups, the Mate 30 and P40 did launch early this year without Google apps but wouldn’t really be classified as “successful” when it comes to sales.

As much as one can still download apps through APKs, you miss out on a lot of benefits like timely updates and the seemles transition between Google services say Gmail and the Play Store.

In fact, most of the Google apps you would actually need cannot even be installed in any way.

A phone without Google services had been predicted to be the start of Huawei’s nightmare and deep down, it has not been that smooth for the Chinese tech giant.

Even if Huawei user have been urged to use apps from the Huawei App Galary and also the promise of a custom “Huawei Mobile Services”, nothing sure beats that stock Android feeling.

Huawei releases Mobile Services

However, news coming from Huawei’s own German-language site, Huawei Central, imply that a “new” flagship phone will soon be launched packing Google apps.

Which begs the question. How in the world could Huawei evade the Trade Ban to launch a smartphone packing Google services? Which logically is quite impossible! But there’s a catch.

How Huawei ‘could’ launch new smartphone with Google services

Spotted at the terms and conditions section for an impending list of P30 phones. Among them is one “P30 Pro NEW EDITION”, which as far as we are concerned, has never been unveiled.

Huawei hopes to use this loophole to launch a new smartphone logically bypassing the Google services ban.

However, you should note that none of these claims has been confirmed by Huawei.

Earlier this year, the P30 Lite saw a ‘New Edition’ launched with more RAM and storage than the original. But what the company really wanted was to relive the past old days of having a new phone with Google services and remaking older devices seemed to be the only way.

So, just maybe, Huawei will be doing the same with a high-end model that was considered to be one the most popular in 2019.
The main question would be what specifically would be upgraded with this P30 Pro “new edition” if it is actually in the works.

What happens if Google decides not to legalize Huawei pushing out Android updates for existing phones? So many questions, yet few answers.

Additionally, it is not clear how long this tactic of renewing older devices and fixing Google services right in them will really work for Huawei but for now, it seems the company is making the most of that loophole.

However, as the future of China’s front-ranking mobile phone brand, Huawei has already become uncertain with thousands of its existing customers and is in no doubt losing that accolade real quick with fellow Chinese manufacturer – Xiaomi already lurking in the background.
