Thе release of nеw iPhone modеls is always an event. In 2019, the company will introduce another flagship smartphone. Fоr nоw, the unannounced device is tentatively called the iPhone XI or iPhone 11.
Apple will present this new product in September 2019. There is still a lot of time before the device is released, but experts are already trying to suggest its future characteristics and features. Of course, this information is unverified, and from Apple do not expect to confirm or deny. In the meantime, we will try to collect in the framework of one article everything that is known about the iPhone 11 at the moment.
iPhone 11 Prototypes
In 2019, insiders decided to kill the intrigue as soon as possible. In early January, a reputable OnLeaks insider published images of two official prototypes of the iPhone 11. An insider source managed to get CAD drawings of the prototypes that revealed the main innovations of the smartphone.
The first prototype has the usual form of the body, like the previous models of iPhone. Visibly reduced upper display frame, and triple camera. The system of three cameras is located in a triangle on a large square platform bulge out from the receiver case.
This design of the iPhone 11 didn’t like the Apple fans. However, polls towards the end of January showed that the appearance of the smartphone is very attractive and original. Most users think so, but there is no frank negative to such design.
The second prototype of the iPhone 11 has an identical body shape, still the smaller upper frame of the display and also a triple camera, but located vertically in the middle of the back surface of the body.
Wе nееd to undеrstand that thеsе arе prototypеs, which Applе may havе much morе. Morеovеr, according to thе Japanеsе еdition of Macotakara, Applе has not yеt approvеd thе final dеsign of thе iPhonе 11. This mеans that thе nеxt Applе flagship may look diffеrеnt.
According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gourmet, whose information about the apple company has always been reliable, the design of the new iPhone will not change. Still, analysts think that the design of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max may be updated much more significantly.
There are suggestions that the case of the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max may be inspired by iPad Pro 2018 – with square edges. This will make the design of new smartphones look like the iPhone 5 – a model that Apple fans consider ideal in terms of design.
We can safely assume the presence of OLED displays in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max. Apple will not return to traditional LCD screens. The diagonal of the displays will also remain the same. If there are changes in the size of the diagonal, then a tenth of an inch. It is still possible to enlarge the screen by reducing the bezel and the cutout at the top of the screen.
The back panel of the updated iPhone will be made of glass. Most likely, it will be matte. Thus, the 2018 model can be visually distinguished from the 2019 new products.
Displays of new iPhones will receive an increased update rate – this will be better and truly powerful innovation. In applications and menus, screens will operate at a frequency of 90 Hz. This will make the image more pleasant and the effects – smooth. In games, the frequency will increase to 120 Hz, making this process as clear as possible.
Processor and memory
The system will be based on the new A13 Bionic processor, manufactured using the 7-nanometer process technology. New items will receive improved machine learning. There is no doubt that Apple’s new processor will once again delight users with performance records. The iPhone 11 will have 4 GB of RAM installed instead of 3 GB.
Battery and Charging
Growing power requires more energy. Surely, Apple will increase the battery capacity of its iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max compared to its predecessors. Chinese experts report that the 6.5-inch flagship battery can get a record 4000 mAh capacity for the iPhone.
According to the same insider, wireless charging will also occur faster due to the maximum power of 15 watts. For comparison, the maximum wireless charging power of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is two times less – 7.5 watts.
The characteristics of the triple camera is already known. According to OnLeaks sources, the two main cameras of the iPhone 11 will receive a matrix with a resolution of 14 MP, while the third, auxiliary module will receive a resolution of 10 MP. Recall, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have two cameras with a resolution of 12 MP each.
In iOS 13 debuts software tool for photo correction, working on the basis of machine learning technologies and neural networks. iPhone 11 will be able to better take portrait photos. Work with objects of augmented reality will also move to a new level.
The resolution of the front camera flagships will increase to 10 MP (in the iPhone XS / XS Max – 7 MP). The processing of the front camera TrueDepth will be subjected to, becoming more compact.
