Samsung may be busy hyping up their Galaxy family of mobile devices ahead of a major Unpacking event this coming August, but they are hardly the only tech manufacturers with something new and nifty that they have not introduced yet as of this time of the year. Apple has its own arrow to shoot yet before 2019 is out, that being the “iPhone 11” following the 2018 release of the iPhone XS/Max and XR models. The tech giant has not made any official pronouncement on the new smartphones for now, but there have been lots of leaks already coming out.
The Verge has it that new rumors peg Apple to release the next model in the iPhone series in the fall. Following leaks that discuss the possible cameras of the iPhone 11, the new speculations focus on other features and the fact that, like the iPhone XS and friends, there will be three different variants of the upcoming smartphone. Expected additions include a possible new “lead haptic” Taptic Engine to replace the gradually obsolescing 3D Touch, and the latest A13 chip. The Lightning connector is already expected, being a successor.
Previous iPhone 11 rumors regarding the cameras posit that it will be a triple-cam system, and a wide-angle camera is said to be slotted in to fit the extra space in the rear cam setup. Also speculated to be added to the cameras’ capabilities is a “Smart Frame” option. This enables the cam to catch a wider area around the camera frame, which would allow adjustment of which part of the image to focus on, and perhaps even alter the photo’s perspective. At least that has been what the leaks, courtesy of 9to5Mac has stated thus far. The front-facing selfie cam reportedly would be improved to capture 120 fps slow-motion.
Aside from these leaked possible specs, the Apple iPhone 11 will not be entirely groundbreaking due to yet more rumors that it will carry over the display resolutions from the XS/Max and XR models. If true, then the chances are good that the device (and its alleged variants) might soon be revealed anytime from August to September at the optimum. We will be keeping eyes and ears out for more information, hopefully official ones, as the year continues rolling along.
