    Without esim support here, i think China release is the best hope for early adopters.

    What a bummer

    I was hoping to get the XS Max but with this pricing malabo.

    I think it’ll start at 74k at the very least.

    Even the XS in Singapore is already 65k when converted to Peso.

    I'm hoping for a miracle that the peso strengthens by the time the phone gets released here in Manila. I'll be in the minority here but I'll actually miss the white bezels that is characteristic of an iphone.

    mm...the biggest iPhone yet at 6.5” (but no bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus). Starting at USD 1,099.00 for the 64 GB model (??!) and nearly USD 1500 for the 512 GB (omg!), Apple is betting that people will still buy the latest and greatest from Cupertino, given the impressive specs and new features of this superphone. Will you buy? Are over a thousand dollar premium smartphones the new normal?

    And expect China to come out with their Class AAA iPhones to compete with the dual-sim Xs’s...

    Oh wait, they’ve been doing that already...

    No dual sim, no upgrade for me.
    The prices alone is a barrier that is hard to hurdle!
    X for another year for me too.

    No matter how hard I try, I keep on reading Xs as "ex es". I have no problem reading previous iPhone X as "Ten". Hahaha.

    Expect pressure on Iphone to keep the prices up due tariff dispute of China and US . Apple is being forced to have some components made in the US which according to some analyst may cost the Iphone increase prices around 15%
