Here is a confirmation and a little news for the future Apple iPhone 11, often called iPhone XI.
While we had drawn up an exhaustive list of highly probable new features on the 2019 iPhone, Guilherme Rambo confirms a few points. We find in particular the new Taptic engine, the A13 chip, the preserved Lightning port as well as the number of models which remains three.
Three iPhone 11s with a design very close to the iPhone XS
The three new iPhone 11s will, unsurprisingly, retain the same general design as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The one that will change the most will therefore be the iPhone XIR which will benefit from a photo block with two lenses on the back. All will keep the notch and almost identical dimensions.
Rambo tells us, however, that the iPhone XI, iPhone XI Max and iPhone XIR have the code names D42 (iPhone12.3), D43 (iPhone12.5) and N104 (iPhone12.1). The screen would also be the same with an unchanged resolution, ie 1,792 x 828 pixels for the iPhone XIR, 2,436 x 1,125 pixels for the iPhone XI and 2,688 x 1,242 pixels for the XI Max.
In the already proven information section, we find the new A13 chip, still in 7nm, the Lightning port not yet buried by the USB-C and the rear photo module. On the other hand, although it confirms the triple sensor on XI and XI Max, and the double on XIR, Rambo ensures that a Smart Frame function will be there for the first two cits. Another point on the photo, the front camera will slow down 120 frames per second.
Smart Frame: what is it?
The Smart Frame is a new function which takes advantage of this additional sensor. It keeps the surrounding areas around for a time around a photo or video. This then allows you to better crop your shots since the image taken with the wide angle is larger than that displayed. We can then straighten or crop.
According to the source, this data is automatically deleted from the iPhone after a while to respect privacy.
Leap Haptics: the new haptic engine?
Among the new leaks, the last interesting point concerns a new haptic engine – the Taptic Engine. If we had already mentioned it, we learn that it is named Leap Haptics internally. It would be the end of 3D Touch assured.
