Good news for all those people who wanted Apple to develop a smartphone thicker in its width to enhance battery life and reduce the camera bump.
Recently, at a press event in California, Apple presented its new trio of smartphones: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. At this launch event, Apple gave deep insights into the technical specifications of the iPhone 11 Pro’s new triple-lens camera system and also explained how the camera is well equipped to be used by professional cinematographers in creative ways. Apple says that this phone is specially designed for professional photographers, videographers, and others whose living depends on video shooting and editing.
Rear cameras: wide, ultrawide, telephoto
This newly launched trio is all focused on its thrilling cameras. There are many brands in the market, already selling smartphones with the three-camera system, but it’s the first time for Apple to develop a phone having a wide-angle lens with both ultrawide-angle and telephoto sensors.
As compared to the previous iPhone models launched last year, the new models are equipped with a 12-megapixel front camera that is upgraded from the previous year’s 7-megapixel lens. Additionally, the new models will be having an extra rear camera compared to its 2018 counterpart.
How much does it cost?
The smartphones are available at a price starting from $699, $999, and $1,099 respectively—may be a shocking price in today’s world where we are familiar with paying around $1,000 for an iPhone.
Look and feel of its design:
These new models are available in a fresh palette of colors with a textured matte body finish. The different colors available are: white, yellow, black, purple, green, and red. Though the new series might be wearing different colors, but with respect to the overall design, their appearance is strikingly similar to the previous year’s iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR —notch and all.
Apart from its impressive design, the new series is developed using powerful new A13 Bionic processor assuring faster speed and also possess video tools like Night Mode. So far, the phone does not support 5G carrier but the company plans to add this feature by 2020. In the beginning, the new model was rumored to have reverse wireless charging that can charge the Apple Watch, Apple AirPods, and other phones of the back of the iPhone 11—but Apple failed to add these features. There are other brands such as Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones that are well equipped with this feature.
Apple also failed to add some other rumored features such as making the new iPhone 11s compatible with the Apple Pencil, and a USB-C port that was can replace the Lightning connection.
Apple lacked many stunning features to tempt consumers and hence in this hyper-competitive smartphone industry, it didn’t manage to boost its sale for this new series. The iPhone 11 Pro has attained feature equality with its opponents, more or less, and individuals upgrading from within the iOS ecosystem will certainly be pleased with the ultrawide camera and night mode.
