Apple iPhone 11 news and images

The iPhone event is a hot topic every year and with the iPhone 11 most likely heading our way in September, there is plenty of rumours and leaks to give us some tidbits before the official launch.

iPhone 11 design

As is usual with one of the big flagship releases, we are seeing lots of renders and image leaks way ahead of the official unveiling.

These renders (image credit: @Onleaks) show three cameras on the back. The back cover appears to be glass and the cameras are in a central block at the top of the rear cover. The front shows a notch in the display for the front cameras and sensors, as debuted on the iPhone XS.

Some other images have been seen out and about with the camera module in the upper left corner of the back. This is more consistent with where Apple has been putting the camera lenses on their phones so far.

 

As we were given three models of iPhone last year, the Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR, it has been speculated that this trend will continue.

 

iPhone 11 specifications

The new models’ screen specifications have also been the subject of debate. The iPhone XI is expected to have a 5.8-inch display as we saw on the iPhone XS, although we are anticipating it will have smaller bezels. This model won’t likely support 5G but rumours have hinted at a big 4,000mAH battery.

 

The size of the main iPhone 11 model is being hotly contested with various sources stating it will be a bit bigger, while others say it will retain the same iPhone XS dimensions.

While there has been chat about the charging connection, we won’t know for sure if Apple is going to opt for a USB Type-C connection until they make the new phone official.

Although the models may not stray away from the Lightning connection, there is an expected two-way wireless charging feature. This option has been released on other phones recently so it is not too far fetched to think that the iPhone 11 could have it too.

Sony 3D sensors could also be included, these would make face unlock work faster and add better depth-sensing for images.

The new A13 chip is expected to make its debut on the iPhone 11, we get a new processor every year so this is highly likely.

5G connectivity is not expected to make it onto this year’s models but there is talk of it finally appearing on the iPhone 12 in 2020.

Apple iPhone 11 camera

The consensus on the iPhone 11 camera is that we will see a triple lens rear camera on the new phone. Schematics have been seen out in the wild that seem to confirm this.

Whether that triple lens will be reserved for the higher end model, the iPhone 11 Max, remains to be seen. This has been hinted at so it could be that the iPhone 11 and more affordable version will stick with a dual lens camera.

There was talk of a laser-powered 3D camera for the top-end iPhone 11 Max but it now looks like that feature won’t make an appearance until 2020, or the iPhone 12.

The front facing camera is expected to get a bump up in resolution with some hints of a 10-megapixel or 12-megapixel one.

Apple iPhone 11 launch date

The launch of this years iPhone is likely to follow the pattern of previous releases. That means the official iPhone 11 launch event will be in early September, perhaps the beginning of the second week.

The IFA 2019 is going on from 6th to 11th September this year and Apple may launch their flagship after this event is over. They have held their launch event when as the IFA is underway before so we shall have to see which date they go for.

Pre-orders for the iPhone 11 are likely to begin on the Friday after the launch and actual release dates tend to be a week after the pre-orders. All this means you could potentially have a new iPhone 11 in your hands around the 20th September.

As always, these things can shift and the final date and specifications can only be confirmed by Apple themselves at the iPhone 11 launch.
