iPhone 16 Pro Max Leak: A18 Chip, 6.9″ Display, New Colors

If everything goes as expected, Apple will once again launch its new iPhone lineup in September this year, featuring the iPhone 16 series. Just like in previous years, information about the new iPhones has been leaking out around this time, whether it’s Apple intentionally drumming up excitement or genuine leaks remains unclear. However, considering the accuracy of past leaks, the credibility of the recently exposed iPhone 16 series seems quite high.

The iPhone 16 series still consists of four models: iPhone 16, iPhone 16 Plus, iPhone 16 Pro, and iPhone 16 Pro Max. While there are minor changes in the exterior design, there are significant upgrades in terms of specifications, making it quite promising.

In terms of design, there’s a change in the camera module layout on the back of the iPhone 16 series, shifting from the previous diagonal arrangement to a vertical one, with the flash now positioned separately outside the camera module.

The iPhone 16 Pro seems identical to its predecessor, with the addition of a new pink color option, likely to attract a considerable number of users.

The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro will not feature the latest A18 Pro chip, but rather the A17 chip, which is essentially a neutered version of the A17 Pro. Meanwhile, the iPhone 16 Pro series will be equipped with the latest A18 Pro chip, boasting impressive benchmarks with a Geekbench 6 single-core score of around 3500 and a multi-core score of 8200. The A18 Pro will incorporate an upgraded neural engine, providing powerful AI performance for the phone.

Based on the leaked information, while the A18 Pro may not surpass the third-generation Snapdragon 8 in multi-core performance, it still holds an advantage in single-core performance.

In terms of dimensions, the iPhone 16’s screen size has increased to 6.2 inches, while the iPhone 16 Plus now boasts a 6.9-inch display. Similarly, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max retain screen sizes of 6.2 inches and 6.9 inches, respectively. Therefore, it’s not surprising that the new iPhone 16 series will feature the largest models in Apple’s history.

As for the reason behind the size increase, industry speculations suggest that the iPhone 16 series will introduce a completely new sensor, leading to the enlargement of the device dimensions.

In terms of pricing, the iPhone 16 Pro starts at 256GB, priced at $999, with the Chinese version likely to be around 7999 yuan. The iPhone 16 Pro Max maintains the 256GB base model, priced at $1199, with the Chinese version likely to be around 9999 yuan.

There will be more leaks about the iPhone 16 series in the future, so Apple enthusiasts just need to wait patiently. Of course, if you have a strong demand for aesthetics and hope for significant changes in design, you might not need to wait. Opting for the currently heavily discounted iPhone 15 Pro Max is also a good choice. Judging from the leaked images, the design of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is almost identical to the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro Max.

The iPhone 15 Pro Max is equipped with the A17 Pro chip, boasting formidable performance even in 2024, ranking at the top in various rankings. It features a 6.7-inch screen with the Liquid Island design, narrower bezels compared to its predecessor, and a higher screen-to-body ratio. With a battery capacity of 4422mAh, it offers excellent battery life, comparable to Android phones equipped with 5000mAh batteries. However, despite switching to a USB-C interface, the charging power of the iPhone 15 Pro Max has not been improved. In terms of imaging, it features a 48-megapixel main camera + 12-megapixel ultra-wide + 12-megapixel telephoto, and a 12-megapixel front camera.

The iPhone 15 Pro Max remains a top-tier device in the industry, boasting exceptional performance, battery life, craftsmanship, and screen experience. However, following Apple’s tradition, the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro Max will likely only see minor changes, retaining the Liquid Island design and camera layout, as Apple tends to stick with a particular design for about five years.

While awaiting the iPhone 16 series will naturally offer the latest configurations and technologies, opting for the heavily discounted iPhone 15 Pro Max currently available is also a wise choice.
