Apple iPhone 11 – Here’s How Apple’s Next 2019 iPhone Might Look Like 1

The countdown to the launch of Apple’s iPhone 11 is well and truly underway, so we thought you might like a handy place to catch up on all of the latest leaks, news, rumors, and details ahead of the new model’s reveal later this year.

Between now and the launch, which looks likely to be sometime in September or October, we’ll be continuously updating this page with all the latest information.

Apple keeps its cards close to its chest with new products, however, so it’s worth keeping in mind that a lot of what you’ll see here will be based on leaks and rumors, and not always from official channels. That said, there are plenty of reliable and authoritative sources that get things right on a consistent basis. Check out what we know so far about the Apple iPhone 11 below.

iPhone 11 release date

The Apple iPhone 11’s release date has yet to be revealed, but you can expect it to drop sometime in September or early October. This would be in line with earlier iPhone models.

If we were forced to speculate about a specific launch date, September 17 or September 18 looks the most likely. Apple usually unveils its big products on a Wednesday or Thursday, and Europe’s biggest tech show, IFA 2019 in Berlin, is taking place on September 6-11 this year. It seems unlikely that Apple would want to launch its new iPhone in the same week.

Preorders tend to become available on the Friday of the announcement (that would be September 19, if our guess is right), with an in-store launch the following week.

iPhone 11 design

The design of the Apple iPhone 11 is the subject of much speculation right now. We’re yet to see any leaked designs, but Indian magazine Digit reported that the phone will have an all-glass black back panel with the Apple logo right in the center.

That doesn’t sound like too much of a departure from prior models, but here’s where things get a little more interesting: the magazine also reported that the iPhone 11 will feature a triple-camera setup housed in a square “notch” unit, transforming the look of the entire phone. Check out what that might look like in Digit’s video above.

iPhone 11 specs and features

It goes without saying that a triple-lens iPhone like the one shown above would bring with it significant advancements in the phone’s camera capabilities, so you can expect your pictures to look better on the new model. Aside from the camera, there isn’t too much information about what the phone’s other specification improvements might be.

In November 2018, it was reported that Apple is prepping its future iPhones for 5G, the next generation of cellular networking, promising greater coverage and faster download speeds. But that is more likely to be a feature on the 2020 iPhone rather than the iPhone 11.

There have also been rumors that smaller features such as faster Wi-Fi support, improved Face ID performance and reliability, and USB-C support could be included, although they’re unlikely to be major selling points when the phone is finally unveiled.

iPhone 11 price

Again, we have no firm details as yet, but the Apple iPhone 11 price will likely start at around $999. This is in line with the iPhone XS and iPhone X before it. It would be surprising if the company decided to up the price tag, given it isn’t selling as many iPhones as it had forecasted. There is even speculation Apple might offer a slightly cheaper model this time out.

MTN Night Plan Reduced - See New 2019 Data Plan 11

If there’s one thing I hate about MTN is the way they make some changes to data plans, they’re just punishing subscribers. With the MTN Night Plan reduced you may want to look into another data plan for your night crawling needs.

MTN Night Plan Reduced

Around August last year, the plan was initially reduced from 500mb for N25 to 125MB and from 1GB for N50 to 500MB. And now, the plan has been reduced again.

MTN Night Plan Reduced

To be honest, this is annoying. Basically, you’ll now get 125MB for N25 and 250MB for N50. However, there’s an alternative . The Airtel night plan still offers you something better; with N25, you’ll get 500MB.

So MTN –

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia Nigeria To Compete With Tecno And Infinix

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia Nigeria To Compete With Tecno And Infinix 12

In an effort to take the African mobile space there’s a new development – Xiaomi partners with Jumia. They will have access to sell their phones exclusively on the popular e-commerce platform. If you remember clearly I made a post concerning Xiaomi’s plans to come back to Africa and now they have partnered with Jumia.

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia

 

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia- What It Means

This partnership means Jumia will open the Mi official store on its platform and give Xiaomi access to millions of online customers across 14 countries in Africa while Jumia will be able to offer the Redmi Go (1GB+8GB) exclusively in Africa as well as other devices later in the year.

 

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia

According to Xiaomi VP –

We believe in working with companies that share our values and delighted to partner with Jumia to reach more Mi fans across Africa,” said Wang Xiang, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi. “The e-commerce model is part of Xiaomi’s DNA and we believe that working with Jumia will help us bring innovation for everyone across the continent.”

This partnership covers Nigeria, Egypt, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Morocco, and Ghana, and will gradually expand to other countries where Jumia operates. Most markets will be directly supplied from China.

 

Xiaomi Partners With Jumia- What I Think About It

In general, I’d say this is a bold move from Xiaomi but if they want to really shake the big boys here (Tecno, Infinix and Itel) , they should provide offline stores in the top 5 cities in the country – Lagos , Port Harcourt , Abuja , Kano And Ibadan.

Also they should provide excellent customer service and service centers in those locations as well. A lot of people are still scared of buying things online.

Last but not least, they should have a new branch Xiaomi Nigeria and the team should engage in massive marketing from billboards to digital ads. Personally, I feel fellow techies like me wouldn’t say they don’t know Xiaomi but if they really want to reach out to everyone , ads are a must and one more thing. Don’t forget tech reviewers not based in Lagos, Cheers.
