The 6.5-inch iPhone with the "S" label will be a big surprise

Summary: Earlier today, the foreign media 9to5Mac shared the first official picture of the iPhone and Apple Watch Series 4 in 2018, and also confirmed that this year's iPhone will be called "iPhone XS." Although the emergence of the "S" label usually means an upgrade to the iPhone, not a revolutionary upgrade, this year's iPhone X series is slightly different, as the iPhone X product line is expanding, including a new 6.5-inch model. .
Earlier today, the foreign media 9to5Mac shared the first official picture of the iPhone and Apple Watch Series 4 in 2018, and also confirmed that this year's iPhone will be called "iPhone XS." Although the emergence of the "S" label usually means an upgrade to the iPhone, not a revolutionary upgrade, this year's iPhone X series is slightly different, as the iPhone X product line is expanding, including a new 6.5-inch model. .


As we have reiterated many times before, Apple expects to launch three new iPhones this year: the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, the 6.5-inch iPhone XS, and the cheaper 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.

One thing that is unclear is whether Apple will add a "Plus" label to the end of this year's 6.5-inch iPhone XS, as it did in devices such as the iPhone 8 Plus. Another possibility is that Apple takes a similar approach to the iPad Pro, simply providing two screen sizes with the same "iPhone XS" name.

Regardless of these details, the "S" tag is usually associated with iPhone upgrades - such as iPhone 6 to iPhone 6s. In the past, people were often less excited about the “S” model than the “non-S” model. However, the situation is different this year.

This year is the first time Apple introduced a new screen size in the "S" update. The iPhone 5 uses a 4-inch display, the iPhone 6 is upgraded to a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch display, and in 2018, Apple will introduce an "S" model with a 6.5-inch display. This alone made me excited about this year's iPhone XS, just like last year's iPhone X.

From a mathematical point of view, the 5.8-inch iPhone X is three inches larger than the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus, but in real life, the iPhone X is significantly smaller than the previous "Plus" model. Everything has changed this year.

The most exciting thing about the 6.5-inch iPhone XS is that Apple has plugged the 6.5-inch display into a slightly smaller body than the iPhone 8 Plus. Based on the supply chain schematic, the 6.5-inch iPhone XS is expected to be 157.53mm x 77.44mm x 7.85mm. In contrast, the size of the iPhone 8 Plus is 158.4mm x 78.1mm x 7.5mm. This means that the 6.5-inch iPhone XS will be slightly shorter, slightly narrower than the iPhone 8 Plus, but slightly thicker.

Of course, the iPhone 8 Plus itself is a large device, and one-handed use is almost impossible. However, as far as I am concerned, I don't think iPhone X is particularly suitable for one-handed operation, so I am happy to accept the increased screen space.

The iPhone XS has a larger 6.5-inch display that supports more sophisticated software features. A report from last month showed that the 6.5-inch iPhone XS will support an iPad-like horizontal screen application interface.

For example, in the Calendar app, you can view the calendar itself on one side of the display and the related events on the other side. In addition, you can also view the information of a single contact and the complete contact list in the address book. Perhaps most notably, SMS will also support viewing all conversations on the left and individual conversations on the right.

In my opinion, these improvements help the iPhone change from a smartphone to a mini tablet. The more information displayed on the display screen, the more work done, the better the device.

Moving from the current iPhone X to the 6.5-inch iPhone XS will definitely take some time to get used to. After all, after years of using the 5.5-inch "Plus" model, users will need time to adapt to the iPhone X's 5.8-inch display. For me, this transition went smoothly, but on several occasions I really missed the big screen of the iPhone 7 Plus.

This time, I expect that using the 6.5-inch iPhone XS will be a bit uncomfortable at first, and it will definitely take some time to adjust. However, the increased screen space will eventually make it easy to compensate for the initial discomfort.

to sum up

For the iPhone, this year may be an "S" year, but for those who are eager for a 6.5-inch OLED screen, the 2018 iPhone is more than just an update.

With larger screens, software enhancements, new A12 processors, and perhaps more things we don't know, Apple is doing more than just an upgrade to iPhone X. Although its name is "S", the 6.5-inch iPhone XS is definitely not like "S" in terms of updates.
