iPhone XS leak confirms design, name, larger device, and gold color
With just under two weeks to go before Apple’s annual hardware event on September 12, the company’s next-generation premium devices, the iPhone XS and XS Plus, have both leaked out thanks to information and an image obtained by 9To5Mac.

Starting off with the image, the render in question appears to be one that will be used on the brand’s official website, or perhaps even during the official keynote. However, it’s fair to say that it doesn’t provide the clearest glimpse at the designs due to the artificial lighting conditions. Despite this, though, it is sufficient to confirm that the bezel-less look that debuted on last year's iPhone X will be making a return. Moreover, as revealed by the stainless-steel frame, it seems as though Apple will be introducing a new gold color with this year’s lineup which will presumably resemble the one that leaked earlier this year via the FCC.

In regards to other details, it’s claimed that most are yet to be verified. However, it can be confirmed with “certainty” that Apple’s next two premium offerings will utilize the iPhone XS name, with the larger model presumably including the Plus branding also. Moreover, the screen sizes are once again listed as 5.8-inches and 6.5-inches respectively.

Alongside the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, Apple is also expected to unveil a cheaper LCD model which will adopt a similar bezel-less design and should utilize the “iPhone” moniker. Additionally, a new Apple Watch Series 4 and updated iPad Pros are expected to make an appearance at the event.

it depends. The design of the gold and black Lumia 930 was a beauty and pretty elegant if you ask me

That’s way I feel about watches. Have a good watch from 1980 but now looks dated. Phones too. I just want the space grey with black front.

It's just your preference. I don't like the Rose Gold. But the champagne colored gold on the white 5S, 6S were very cool looking. I also like the gold on the S6. Use as an accent color, also is very nice. It just doesn't look good on all phones.

No you aren't. And it shouldnt matter. I like it has highlights, like how the 5S was. The S6 use if it was cool too. But not all phones will look good. But if Apple took the Champagne Gold and Rose and colored the logo, the stainless steel, that would look very appealing. Just don't make the whole back a gold color.

I’ll get the regular “XS” but apple should definitely name those phones differently

It’s not hiding it. It’s there. You don’t see it because the background of the wallpaper is black and the notch is black, too.

you know they did that on purpose to divert your eyes away from the notch.

if they didnt with the X why would they do it now? and the X was a pretty well selling phone, despite the notch.

Hope they make a smaller notch for this generation, not only the Xs+ has to have a smaller notch

My guess is the notch will be proportionally bigger on the XS+ so Apple doesn't have to make iOS adapt to bigger or smaller notches. Absolutely terrible product naming though, literally anything would've been better.

So the iPhone Nazi or the iPhone Urinal would be better names?

They should've done the XS, X2, and XL for their phones

It better be Black and Gold. I won't accept anything else.

I really like the gold also. I really want the iphone X plus in gold also. Going to be great with a 6.5 inch screen.
