A12 chip + 512GB flash memory: a big boost to the neural network engine
Apple says the A-series chips are better than any other, and this year's new A12 bionic is the world's first 7nm process chip with 6.9 billion transistors crammed inside for exceptional performance, making it the smartest and most powerful chip in the smartphone industry today. In terms of architecture, the A12 is designed with a 6-core CPU + 4-core GPU + 8-core neural network model.
Among them, Apple's in-house designed CPU cores are still the Fusion architecture, with two of the six cores being high-performance cores that deliver 15 percent better performance and 40 percent better power efficiency. The other four are power-efficient cores with a 50% improvement in power efficiency.
The GPU, also designed in-house by Apple, offers a 50 percent performance boost in graphics performance, which Apple says is a pretty huge boost.
The really big change, according to Apple, is the neural network engine, which last year was a dual-core design, while the A12's neural network engine features an 8-core design that provides AI machine learning and smart computing, and can determine whether tasks on the iPhone are given to the CPU, GPU, or neural network engine to do the work. The performance is described as unparalleled, with Apple claiming to have increased the number of operations per second from 600 billion to 50,000 billion, which is incredible.
The A12's neural network engine now supports even more new tasks, including image signal processing, hevc decoding and encoding, video processing, 64-bit CPU control, performance control, security compartment, memory control, system cache, display engine, all-day processing, audio management, fast storage management, and more. Apple says the engine, which also offers new features before ARKit, also opened up Core ML to developers, and its Core ML engine is now nine times faster but uses a tenth of the power of the A11.
Meanwhile, the optional storage capacity of the iPhone Xs series has been increased to 512GB. Apple says that this capacity stores 200,000 photos without any stress.
Thanks to the A12's neural network engine, coupled with algorithmic gods and faster security compartments, Apple says Face ID now has faster algorithms, is faster, more secure, and completely seamless - the best and most secure facial recognition authentication technology in the world on this smartphone.
In terms of battery life, Apple says the iPhone Xs has 30 minutes longer standby time than the iPhone X, and the iPhone Xs Max has an hour and a half longer standby time than the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max is the strongest iPhone phone in terms of battery life.
Dual camera incorporates groundbreaking AI
The iPhone Xs series offers a 12MP dual camera with a ?/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens and a ?/2.4 aperture telephoto lens, a six-mirror lens with 2x optical zoom support, and both lenses offer optical stabilization technology. Apple says the new sensor is twice as fast as the former.
Apple claims that the iPhone Xs continues to innovate in the camera like never before on an iPhone, as this uses advanced Neural Network Optimizer functional depth algorithms that unleash incredible performance, with huge enhancements in Smart HDR, out-of-focus imaging and depth-of-field control, portrait mode selfies, dark light detail performance, dynamic images, and more.
Apple mentions the latest Smart HDR technology, claiming it's a photo algorithm that utilizes multiple technologies, such as a more sensitive sensor, enhanced image signal processor and advanced algorithms to give more detail in highlights and shadows in photos.
The iPhone Xs series mentions a 7MP camera on the front with a ?/2.2 aperture lens that supports 1080p video recording and also supports Smart HDR photo technology.
