Apple is expected to announce three new iPhones at Apple's September 12th event. As for the hardware and specs, both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will come along with 4GB of RAM which will be paired with a 7nm A12 chip.

Tech giants Apple and Google will be presenting their mammoth smartphones in the upcoming weeks.

Apple late last month sent out press invitations for a September 12 media event. For now, these are still just speculations. The 6.1-inch LCD variation will be the most reasonable on the list with a $600-$700 tag price.

According to a numerous reports, Apple plans to launch three new iPhone models in 2018. The cheaper iPhone with 6.1-inch LCD display will be priced at 799 euros (around Rs 67,000).

The name iPhone XS would make sense, given Apple's convention for naming past phones: Every other year, the iPhone gets an "S" model that looks the same as its predecessor but features lots of internal improvements and refinements.

Moreover, the premium versions have been reportedly christened as iPhone XS (5.8-inch) and iPhone XS Max (6.5-inch). There are also reports that Apple could get rid of the 3D touch which was introduced with the iPhone 6s.

Let's start things off with what to expect in the new set of iPhones. As in the past, Apple will be making the big announcement live at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, California.

A third handset is likely to be named the iPhone 9, filling in the gap created with the announcement of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X previous year.

In addition to the rumoured moniker and larger size, the iPhone XS Max (or iPhone XS Plus) is expected to offer a huge battery. Leaked images show a new hole on the side of the bezel below the crown, which experts believe is a new microphone to enhance all your Dick Tracy fantasies.

What is the iPhone XS? So we will go out on a limb here and call it the iPhone 9.

And as Apple follows a similar timetable every time it launches a new iPhone, we can predict the dates for the iPhone 9's release with reasonable certainty. This has at least eight new complications as the report suggests with one of them being a UV Index.
