iPhone XS Max to Weigh a Surprisingly Heavy Amount, Report Claims

[2018-09-12 10:00:00]

Apple’s next premium iPhone won’t come in light. A Tuesday report claims the company’s upcoming $999 6.5-inch smartphone, tentatively titled the “iPhone XS Max,” could be the heaviest iPhone ever at a staggering 7.34 ounces. That’s around 0.46 pounds, or 210 grams, and more than two-thirds the weight of an iPad Mini 4.The 9to5Mac report claims Apple will continue with its trend of making marginally heavier and thicker phones, a trend that started back with the iPhone 6 in 2014, by making a phone that weighs even more than the 7.13-ounce iPhone 8 Plus, despite the fact that the two devices are expected to share very similar overall dimensions. That may be due to Apple’s shift toward using stainless steel for the enclosure band, versus aluminum found on the 8 Plus, but could also come down to the fact that the 6.5-inch OLED screen that stretches to the far edges of the phone makes it notably heavier than the 5.5-inch LCD screen found on the 8 Plus.... iPhone XS Max to Weigh a Surprisingly Heavy Amount, Report Claims
