Apple has announced that its newly-launched iPhone "XS", "XS Max" and "Watch Series 4" are going on sale globally from 21 September. There is no official date set for the Watch Series 4 launch in India, however.
In India, one would have to shell out Rs 12,075 a month, as zero-cost EMI, for a period of one year to own the 512 GB variant of iPhone "XS Max" — the most expensive iPhone released this month — that would cost Rs 1,44,900.
The iPhone "XS" with 512 GB storage model would be priced Rs 1,34,900 and the cheapest of the lot, iPhone" XR" (64 GB)would hit the shelves at a starting price of Rs 76,900 in India.
The iPhone "XS" and "XS Max" support dual SIM and dual standby functionality and are fuelled by Apple's latest A12 Bionic chipset built on 7-nm design and a new neural engine with an 8-core dedicated machine learning (ML) processor.
The devices also come with upgraded 12 MP + 12 MP camera, 2x optical zoom, improved TrueTone quad-LED flash and 7 MP RGB camera sensor in the front.
The iPhone "XR" sports a 6.1-inch LCD screen with liquid Retina display and a single 12 MP camera at the rear, all in an aluminium body.
The next generation of Apple Watch features edge-to-edge display and comes with support to track heartbeat data, heart rhythm and notify users.
Apple officially introduced its 2018 line-up of iPhones and Apple Watch at an event in California last week.
Editor's note: The original report has been updated to reflect the fact that the iPhone XR and Apple Watch Series 4 are not going to be available in India until later this year.
