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.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 11

The Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a new device launched by Infinix Mobile and it comes with decent specifications. It’s a device I would say is a mid-range budget device so don’t expect much power from this phone.

INFINIX SMART 3 Plus

I still feel with Xiaomi around in Nigeria now Infinix would have stepped up their game but it seems they’re just recycling designs ever since they released the first device with a tear drop notch.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Features

The triple rear camera is quite interesting as well.  In terms of design you get a plastic unibody with glass-finish at the back. The glass-finish adds a premium finish to the phone but unfortunately makes it a fingerprint magnet.

There’s also a microUSB port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone just right below the device. The front of the phone shows the teardrop notch, the selfie camera and the earpiece. Sound quality is not that bad however, The Smart 3 Plus has a downward firing mono speaker which isn’t too loud and you’ll actually prefer using your headphones. I still wonder why Infinix didn’t use the Dirac Speakers in this device.

It has a HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D glass for a premium feel. But I’m a bit disappointed with the 720p resolution and the large display doesn’t actually show what we all expected. It’s a bit low but I’m guessing it’s a sacrifice to put the phone in the budget range.

The back of the phone houses the triple-camera setup .The primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light QVGA sensor.

Let’s take a look at the quick specifications of the device

How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities 14

In this post I’ll be looking at a something that has been bothering me for a while – How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities.

How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities 15

Starting from the end of 2016 till date Android smartphone design aesthetics have moved from being a bit bulky to being almost bezelless.

How Android Smartphones Are Slowly Turning Into Commodities

I appreciate that fact but every good thing comes with a little bad side and unfortunately the bad side of this issue might actually wreck the entire Android ecosystem if companies don’t come up with good enough designs to make people see reasons to actually get a new smartphone.

If you’re wondering what I mean by Android smartphones becoming commodities, well take a close look at this image below.

Can you tell the difference?

Forget about the specs for a while and take a closer look. You know how we all see printers like mere products with different prices, we would see smartphones that way soon. Apart from that the user experience on every Android smartphone is very similar so it’s still basically the same product built on different hardware with an identical design. Doesn’t that remind you of a digital printer or any other computer peripheral?

Even smartphone companies are aware of this hard truth, they want us to buy new phones but with everything in their lineup looking the same it’s harder to sell new flagship device.

So far only Huawei and Vivo aren’t experiencing problems in selling their flagship devices, the rest of the companies , Apple , Google and Samsung are finding it hard to sell their new smartphones and they are responding to this in different ways.

Google announced the Pixel 3A a few days ago, a smaller version of the Pixel 3 , Samsung and Apple have reduced the price of some of their devices (Apple’s price cut only affected China).

Sometime ago, Apple even had to reduce the speed for their older iPhones just to sell the newer ones.

I still give Samsung and Huawei a thumbs up for pulling off the design on the foldable smartphone. However they’re both still very expensive and not something average users would want to spend money on. Irrespective of the mishap that happened on the Galaxy Fold , I still think we can look towards foldable phones to bail the Android OS out. Hopefuly the next version of the Galaxy Fold won’t be a complete mishap.

Apple might actually survive the whole issue since they have total control over their OS, Android on other hand might not. Android Manufacturers should look beyond specs and give us something o
