Brace yourself for the Apple iPhone 11 launch event as the official invitation is out! As expected, the keynote stage will be set at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. The day is Tuesday, September 10, 2019, at 10 a.m. PT or 10:30 p.m. IST (Indian Standard Time).
3 new iPhones – iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max
Talk of the town is three iPhones – iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, running on the A13 chip, with iOS 13 software, updated camera setup and an all familiar design. It would be more of an incremental upgrade. But, there could be a shuffle in the lineup and changes in the nomenclature. The rumor mill has churned out a host of details. And the iPhone 11 seems more like a successor to the iPhone XR. Have a look –
Starting off with the iPhone 11 base variant, we expect a 6.1-inch LCD display with Taptic vibration engine. Even the notch island with all the Face ID apparatus would still be thereatop.
The selfie snapper would be an upgraded 12MP sensor and it might feature sub-epidermal scanning. This jargon is simply put an IR to scan the blood veins of your face to secure the face recognition process.
The rear camera pack will be residing within a square hump. It is likely to house dual 12MP lenses, including a primary ‘standard’ sensor (with decent low-light capabilities), a zoom lens and finally a new wide-angle sensor. This year, you might get 120fps slo-mo recording.
The iPhone photos are expected to be bolstered by Apple’s neural engine as well as a dedicated image processor. It might pack a beefier 3110mAh battery as well. There are speculations of a 18W charger and support for bilateral wireless charging.
Rest, we are a little pessimistic towards a foldable tech or 5G support with the new iPhones. That said, the Apple Watch Series 5 might tag along. You may also look forward to Apple TV+ and other services.
Here’s the expected spec sheet for the three oncoming iPhones –
