Apple has finally unveiled its 2019 iPhone series. The iPhone 11 comes with a glass + aluminum sandwich structure. The screen size is consistent with the iPhone XR. Both models use 6.1-inch LCD screens. Although it is a block LCD screen, the screen quality of the iPhone 11 is quite good. The screen look still reaches the retina level of 326 ppi.
However, the biggest change of this iPhone 11 is that Apple’s logo has moved to the center of the fuselage. Apple explained that this is to make the user know the location of the wireless charging ring more clearly. In other words, this model supports much-desired wireless charging.
In terms of configuration, it is equipped with the latest A13 processor. Apple said the SoC has the fastest CPU and GPU performance on the smartphone market. Apple A13 Bionic’s CPU performance compared to the A12 brings a lot of improvements. Also, it should outrun the Snapdragon 855 and Kirin 980. The performance of the GPU of the Apple A13 Bionic is significantly higher than that of the A12, far more than the Snapdragon 855 and the Kirin 980. Apple said its GPU speed will be twice that of the Snapdragon 855’s Adreno 640.
A13 Bionic performance has improved significantly, but it doesn’t affect battery life. The new iPhone’s battery life is one hour longer than that of the iPhone XR.
In terms of camera, Apple changed the single shot of the iPhone XR. Now, the iPhone 11 is equipped with a 12MP dual-camera. One of the lenses is the ordinary wide-angle main sensor, while the other is the super-wide-angle lens. Moreover, it also supports 4K video capture, smart HDR and dual-camera mode. The handheld image stabilization function has also been upgraded to support the switch function at any time.
In the low light shooting, the company optimized and upgraded the iPhone 11 algorithm. When the user turns on the night scene mode, the noise reduction will be automatically raised to ensure the image quality.
There is another 12MP camera on the front, supporting 4K shooting.
