We’re now days away from the launch of the new iPhone with the Apple Event taking place on 10th September. Every year, before the launch of the new iPhone, we get leaks of the specifications and design of the device, and this year is no different.

Based on the leaks, we’re looking at three variations of the iPhone – the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. All three of them are said to come with an A13 chip, Face ID, a 12MP Front Camera, WIFI 6, Bilateral Wireless Charging and Apple pencil support.
In terms of RAM, the iPhone 11 is said to ship out with a 4GB RAM while the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max should pack on 6GB. Rumor mills are rife with mockups of the phones and suggest a 6.1” LCD display on the iPhone 11 and a smaller 5.8” OLED display on the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Apple also seems to have gotten rid of the 3D Touch technology in all three devices, which is kind of surprising.
Let’s talk a little bit about the design. On the front, Apple has stuck to the design of the iPhone X, which consisted of a pretty noticeable notch, something not a lot people were fond of. Ever since the iPhone X was released, we’ve had several phones come out with both a similar design and alternate versions of it. Some have even gotten rid of the notch altogether, so it’s interesting to still see it being revisited on the iPhone.
Moving on to what is essentially the most notable change so far – the camera. The iPhone 11 is rumored to sport a dual 12MP rear camera setup whereas the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max consist of a triple 12 MP camera setup where the third lens is mostly rumored to be used for wide-angle images.
What’s different this time is the placement. Everything on the rear of the phone seems to be untouched apart from the camera setup. Both Pro offerings are rumored to sport a triple-lens setup that has been almost as divisive as when the notch first came out – scratching your head over the decision to include this in the design? We’re with you on that.
We’re not sure the triple-lens setup is something that fits in with the overall aesthetic of the iPhone. And so, we don’t see a lot of people appreciating this particular choice that Apple has gone for.
So overall, if you were to upgrade your current iPhone, you’d probably do it for the internal hardware, and not so much for the overall design of it. Speaking of upgrades, expect to shell out at upwards of $1000 for the Pro versions. The iPhone 11 is probably going to be the cheapest of the range priced at around 700-800 $. Not the most affordable devices out there but with Apple, you expect nothing less.
If these rumors and leaks are accurate, we’ve got a pretty significant change in terms of design on the rear camera. What do you think of the new camera set up? Will you be upgrading this year? We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments!
