The new leaked images of iPhone 11 indicate the big decision Apple has apparently taken this year – focus more on what goes under the hood and less on innovating design, again.
The launch of Apple’s next-generation iPhone models, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and iPhone 11R is expected to take place in September this year. But, for many, the excitement towards the launch of 2019 iPhone may result in disappointment. According to Ming-chi Kuo, an analyst at TF International Securities, the last year launched iPhone XS and the upcoming iPhone 11 Series look pretty much the same if we take the front view into consideration. In fact, barring the large square bump in the back, meant for a triple camera, The device appears almost identical to its predecessor. The only difference is square bump which contains flash in the top right corner and the three lenses that are arranged in a triangular manner. However, Apple has used a frosted glass in the 2019 iPhones instead of clear.
While 2019 iPhone appears to be missing all the excitement, Apple’s competitors have got other plans to surprise and attract smartphone users. There is more buzz around Samsung’s Galaxy S10. The new flagship from the world’s leading smartphone manufacturer has a sleek new all-screen design that’s interrupted only by a small “hole-punch” camera. On the other hand, OnePlus has taken decided to launch with a no-interruption screen. The OnePlus 7 Pro all-screen design has no interruptions due to the selfie camera that pops up out of the top edge of the phone, is also available in the market. There are more great designs coming later this year, including a revamped hole-punch design on the Galaxy Note 10, and foldable Smartphones will make their debut soon as well.
Therefore, the upcoming iPhones 11 may not be the hottest phone of this year but will still be the most awaited one considering Apple’s unparalleled brand value and rich experience iPhones offers. While the rumours and leaks about iPhone 11 will continue making rounds on the internet, the ultimate design and features we will come to know by September only.
The outer design of iPhone 11 doesn’t appear to have much of changes as compared to its predecessors. Likewise, the leaked images of iPhone start getting leaked from the Foxconn’s Factory just a few months before the launch of the new iPhone every year.
Accessory makers use these leaks to design cases that would be ready by the time new iPhone hits the stores, while others use them to mock Apple’s iPhones for all to see. And the same thing also happened in the case for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, and iPhone 11R earlier this year.
These latest images come from YouTuber Waqar Khan, who mocked up Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11 in all three colours we’re expecting to see later this year: Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.
These new images represent Apple’s iPhone 11 much more closely compare to other leaks. Besides, the square camera bump that matches with the back colour of the device, the mute switch on the iPhone 11 is small as compared to the predecessors. The smaller new mute switch is quite identical to the one in the iPad Pro, and it slides down the side of the iPhone instead of front to back that Apple continues with all the iPhone for so long.
The iPhone XS, launched last year, has received a lukewarm response from the consumers. The declining sales and disappointing response to iPhone XS series forced the company to stop revealing the sales figures of iPhone in their quarterly results. Apple has been facing criticism for the lack of innovations and employing an absurd pricing strategy. It has apparently put Apple in a desperate situation where a lot is riding on the success of the upcoming iPhone 2019.
The 2019 iPhone will be preloaded with new iOS 13 that will be unveiled on June 3rd at much awaited WWDC 2019. As the triple camera is going to be the USP of 2019 iPhones, we need to wait for few more months to see how fascinating iPhone with a triple camera setup would be for smartphone users worldwide.
