The highly anticipated iPhone 15 series is finally here. Apple took the curtains off it alongside the Apple Watch Series 9, Apple Watch Ultra 2, and an updated AirPods Pro (2nd Gen). Here, we’ll get to the specs, features, and expected price of the iPhone 15 Plus in Nepal.
iPhone 15 Plus Overview:
Design and Display
In terms of design, the iPhone 15 Plus is just a bigger iPhone 15. You get the same aerospace-grade aluminum frame with contoured curves while the back panel sports a matte finish. The front and back are both Corning-made glass for sturdiness. Likewise, the IP68 rating gets carried along for protection against dust and water dips. Apple provides five color options for this phone: Black, Green, Yellow, Pink, and Blue.
The charm lies on the display side with the big notch finally bidding a farewell. Like the vanilla iPhone 15, the Plus model now arrives with a Dynamic Island instead of the bathtub-like notch. Talking of the display, it is a Super Retina XDR OLED panel with an FHD+ resolution (2796 x 1290 pixels) and Ceramic Shield glass.
Other features include True Tone colors, P3 color gamut, 2,000 nits peak brightness, and oleophobic coating. Meanwhile, Apple has not upgraded the refresh rate this year either as this is still a 60Hz display.
On the performance side of things, the Plus model relies on Apple’s last-gen A16 Bionic chip. This Hexa-core CPU boasts two Everest cores at 3.46GHz and four Sawtooth cores at 2.0GHz frequencies. Based on TSMC’s 4nm process, this processor still holds a load of power alongside its 5-core Apple GPU. Storage-wise, you get three variants: 128GB, 256GB and 512GB. The phone boots on iOS 17, the latest iteration with customizable caller ID, Live Transcript, NameDrop features, and such.
Apple continues to provide a dual camera setup on both iPhone 15 and Plus siblings. In fact, the 48MP + 12MP combo is the same on both models. The main camera is a 48MP shooter with a 24MP res mode set by default for better image quality. On top of that, you also get a 2X optical zoom mode at 12MP resolution, kind of sufficing the need of a tele unit. On the front side, there is a 12MP TrueDepth camera for selfies, video calls, and 3D face scanning (biometrics security).

It supports 20W fast charging, 15W MagSafe wireless charging, and 5.5W Qi wireless charging support. Likewise, this guy also gets the USB-C 2.0 port as the iPhone 15 (Rest in peace Lighting port!).
Talking of the connectivity options, you get 5G, WiFi 6E, NFC, GPS, Satellite connectivity, car crash detection, and emergency SOS. What’s new is the “Roadside Assistance” support for contacting concerned authorities through satellite connection in case of no fuel, flat tire, or stuck scenarios. This service is free for two years as mentioned on the official site.
