Apple typically launches its next-generation iPhone in September every year, and this is the time frame when iPhone 2019 models or iPhone 11 is expected. Ahead of the official announcement, we are seeing more leaks around Apple’s upcoming iPhone line-up, which is said to feature bigger batteries, reverse wireless charging, and more.
Apple’s 2019 iPhone lineup is speculated to have two OLED display phones and a more affordable iPhone, like the last year’s iPhone XR. One of the models could also come with triple rear cameras, though there is no confirmation. Here is a look at everything we know so far about Apple iPhone 11:
Apple iPhone 11 lineup to have two OLED models:
Apple’s two OLED phones of 2019 could have 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch display sizes, according to a report by Japanese blog Macotakara. The notch of the new phones will be smaller than in last year’s phones.
The 6.1-inch model will reportedly be 0.15mm thinner than the current-generation iPhone XS. Meanwhile, the 6.5-inch iPhone is said to be 0.4mm thinner than the iPhone XS Max.
Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR were launched in September last year. A Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report claims that Apple will have three iPhone variants this year as well, where a third model will sport an LCD display.
Apple iPhone 11: Bigger batteries, reverse wireless charging
Apple iPhone 11 series could have bigger batteries than predecessors, suggests a research note from TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The iPhone XS successor could get 20 to 25 per cent battery bump, while the iPhone XS Max successor is expected to get 15 per cent bigger battery.
However, the battery capacity of iPhone XR successor is expected to remain the same.
Thanks to bigger batteries, the iPhone 2019 phones will support wireless charging similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Both Kuo and Macotakara have confirmed in separate reports that iPhone 11 will offer bilateral charging support.
