You must be wondering that iPhone X is just a half-year-old, and iPhone 11 is on its way! Apple’s iPhone 11 or iPhone XI or iPhone X2 might launch in September! So, we are very close to the launch date. And this is the time when you can get to hear all kinds of rumors about it. So, let us discuss the specifications, launch date and much more.
iPhone 11 – Rumors, Launch date, and Specs
According to the latest reports, the iPhone 11 or iPhone XI could come with two drastically different price value. iPhone X lost its sheen over the time because of its eye-watering price tag, and it would surely make sense for Apple to bring its prices down a bit. Therefore there is this latest rumor that two OLED-based iPhones will debut this year alongside a less expensive LCD screen model.
There’s a good news, the iPhone 11 could actually come at a lower price than its predecessor. According to KGI analyst, Apple is apparently gearing up to launch a 6.1in iPhone this year.
A new color option: gold
Stainless steel frame wrapped in glass
Apple does not change its phone’s design drastically. You can expect the iPhone 11 look similar to iPhone X. An Apple-focused analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo has said the iPhone 11 will boast a stainless steel frame. There is no information about the wrapping material, but we expect Apple to continue with the glass finish.
Another report claims that there will be a new color for the iPhone XI. Colors options for iPhone XI includes, black, white and gold.
iPhone 11 Display screen: around 5.8 inches
iPhone 11 Plus screen: between 6.3 and 6.5 inches
Apple might launch not one iPhone XI but two. Ming-Chi Kuo has also said that there will be two OLED iPhones with stainless steel frames in 2018. Another rumor claims that Apple might launch OLED phones in 3 sizes- 5.8, 6.3-inch, and a third 6.1-inch phone which comes with an LCD screen and a metal back. The LCD-shod smartphone will presumably be cheaper than others.
Dual rear cameras setup.
Face ID and Animoji is expected to continue to be front camera only.
Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple might not put a version of the TrueDepth camera used for Face ID and Animoji on the back of the device. The iPhone XI might feature a smarter front-facing camera than its predecessor. Kuo also said that the iPhone XI might support faster mobile data speeds. The smartphone will feature a dual-SIM card slot and a 4GB of RAM.
Apple will probably use Intel modems for 2018’s models. This could limit Apple’s network speeds. Intel might face some difficulty to keep up with Apple’s demand for new iPhone modems. According to a report from Taiwanese paper, the iPhone 11 might have three 12MP rear cameras with a 5x zooming ability. But there is no information about the kind of zooming. It might be optical, digital or a hybrid of both.
A 10% bigger battery
The 5.8-inch model may have up to 10% larger battery than the iPhone X. while the 6.5-inch model might have a battery of around 3,300-3,400mAh, which would be around a 25% increase. Another source claims that Apple might pack a fast charger in the box, so, you don’t have to buy it separately.
So, let’s wait and watch! Stay tuned for more updates.
