iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 9 cases discovered at Walmart - they're big

iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 9 cases discovered at Walmart - they're big
For the first time ever, Apple is seemingly getting ready to announce three big smartphones on the same day - a 5.8-inch iPhone Xs, a 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max, and a 6.1-inch iPhone 9. Said day is September 12, so there's still almost a week left before Apple officially unveils its 2018 iPhone lineup (and presumably confirms the aforementioned names). Until that happens, someone discovered that Walmart is already stocking cases for two of Apple's upcoming iPhones. 

Reddit user Meechflow95 has managed to snap photos of cases made for the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 9, and compare them to the iPhone X. Since the new handsets are expected to sport screens measuring 6.5 inches and 6.1 inches, respectively, their cases are obviously larger than the iPhone X, which sports a 5.8-inch screen. At the same time, it appears that the iPhone Xs Max will be about as large as the iPhone 8 Plus (with its huge bezels).
Both the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 9 cases have similar vertical cutouts for the rear camera. But their cameras will, most likely, not be similar. The iPhone Xs Max should feature a dual rear camera, while the iPhone 9 reportedly comes with a single main camera. 

For now, there's not much else that these cases can tell us. Nevertheless, we know that Apple's three new iPhones are all expected to look a lot like the iPhone X, notch included. But, while the iPhone Xs and Xs Max come with OLED displays, the iPhone 9 should have an LCD screen (and lack some features in order to keep costs relatively low).

Ok. One more time. Apple will release 3 phones this year.

I am eager to have a bigger phone again. Probably upgrading to xs max. Price has me worried

Considering you can buy an android phone for half the price with equal capabilities, you should be very worried since Apple will most likely rip you off and charge you 1200$ for a 500$ device

If you can’t afford to pay for the surperior polished experience, than don’t get one! It’s as simple as that!

iOS is far from a "superior" and "polished" experience.

Superior and polished but so limited and restricted. Mind blown

you know i can walk into any carrier store and walk out with an iphone x 512gb for less than 150$ and just pay a measly 30$ a month, not everyone has to just drop a lump sum for the phone

I rather buy a thousand phone from apple than getting android garbage products. They’re all sucks! My mother’s iphone 5 still rocks, that’s a money-wise.

I see you haven't used a higher end Android device in the last 5 years. My OnePlus 6 is a MUCH better experience than my iPhone X ever was.

Here comes the OnePlus dude justifying his purchase just to feel good and feed his huge rounded EGO. If your OnePlus 6 is so much better why bother checking Apple articles and keep grandstanding on how good your Android phone is? Gahd! Your motives scream insecurity.

Can we all just let people use whatever phone they want to damn use and it not be a damn debating battle? Who gives a s**t what phone you or somebody else uses and how much they paid for it? You paid for and use what YOU use and that goes for the other person. Arguing about what's better to YOU isn't going to change someone else's mind about what they use. Damn.

He is all talk, you can tell by how hard he tries. I know people still using older Samsung phones, like the S3 and and the note 2 and the person that bought my note 5, still running strong.

What is a thousand phone? I don't know that Apple model. And of course nobody wants to buy Android garbage products, good thing there are also Android quality products ;)

I’m so annoyed by this statement. NO! The android you buy for half the price is NOT THE SAME. it is worse. It’s a waste of time to try - your experience isn’t consistent, it gets worse over time, and there’s very little support if any. Please stop this rhetoric - you’re lying to yourself, you’re lying to others.

Just google excellent experience with 1+6. It has great hardware and superior software. 1+ is known for great software these days. No, it does not get worse over time. 1+6 considered by many tech reviewers best , smoothest and most consistent experience you get on Amdroid. Sure, you have every right to choose what you like and what eco system you live in . But "worse" is not the tright word here. Different, maybe.

Well you can also google “horrible experience with 1+6”. You’ll have just as many results. I’m not dissing android - but saying that a half priced android devices is good or better than iPhone or even Samsung flagship is not true. Is it a good value - yes, can you get tasks done thru the day with cheaper phone, yes, but it comes down to what you want out of device and what you’re willin to spend/afford.

Every phone has horible experience, some more some less BUT some phones are exemplary and 1+6 is the one at the moment. You have to spend time to appreciate it. It is performance and fluidity feast. I personally know people who bought Pixel 1st gen after spending years with Iphones and they could not be happier. It was the point to afford more to get superior software and hardware experience before but not anymore. The gap has closed. Android is matured and superior in many ways and without locking you in. Its just a matter of choosing right OEM .

"Equal capabilities" doesn't mean "equal results".

It may had the 'same' features but having used a Samsung Galaxy S9 for an hour, I can say that the OS experience is sub par and the 'features' don't even work as advertised. You can't compare an Android Phone to an Apple iPhone, Apple iPhone are FAR superior in hardware and software. Android is HOT TRASH at this point.

Why can't people just buy what the hell they want, with their money, and not be ridiculed for it?

Hard to justify their own purchases if others are happy with their phones which aren't the same? It's a pretty messed up thing all around.

I am not against big phones but can never understand how they are practical. This elephant will weigh 7-8 oz, and with a case can never fit comfortably in a pocket -whether dress slacks or jeans. Do you guys really want to walk around all day with this thing in your hand?

I've rocked the Note series since 2012, had extended batteries for the first couple. I've never had an issue with carrying them in my pocket. My issue is the screen size and one handed use, after a few years my thumb is starting to ache from the constant stretching and reaching.

The phone is the same footprint as 7 plus. I’m used too bigger phones that’s is why I’m gonna get one.

What's an "oz", the country that the wizard lives in? The world uses "grams" for weight.

Too small, they should make it bigger. People can't seem to get enough of big phones.

iPhone's ridiculous gestures are going to be even worse on the iPhone excess plus maxxx ...
