iPhone 11 – release date, rumors and expected price
So, how exactly this smart phone will be called? The logical number would be iPhone 11 or iPhone XI (which means the same number 11 in roman numbers). But there are rumors that newest iPhone may be called – iPhone X2. There are no explanations regarding why X2, but there has been a prediction that Apple will not ditch X from smart phone’s name. Although iPhone XI would make much more sense, since it would be the logical numerical sequence.
First time for iPhone
Have you ever imagined that Apple may have some other connection than Lightning port? We believe a lot people did. And yes, it is a well known fact for Apple to use it’s own special parts, cables and other accessories, but it seems that this era of exceptional components might end soon.
The rumor has it, that iPhone 11 might possibly have universal USB Type-C connection. If this new leak is true – smart phone users will hopefully be happy about the change, since they will no longer need to buy additional new, and probably expensive, cables.
Last year Apple had it’s first smart phone with OLED display, so it will not be a surprise if newest models will have the same. As some commentators predict there will be three different models - 6.5-inch OLED, a 5.8-inch OLED and a 6.1-inch LCD model. The pixel density of a 6.5-inch OLED model may range between 480 and 500ppi, a 5.8-inch OLED model may offer 458ppi and a 6.1-inch LCD model - 320 and 330 pixels per inch.
iPhone X and iPhone 8 already have a dual-rear cameras, so the same expectation is for iPhone 11. This time the rumored change might be triple-camera. How cool is that? Well, not so much. If triple-camera will be installed, then it probably will be a Huawei P20 Pro-style triple camera, so it won’t be something revolutional.
How expensive will it be this time?
Well, since so many people paid so much for all previous models, don’t be surprised if announced minimum price will be not less than $999. On the other hand, there are rumors for iPhone X to be actually less expensive. It seems that Apple reportedly has succeeded to decrease it’s costs for some components and according to some renowned commentators we might be expecting something in between $500 and $550. Let’s all hope this is true so some of us would not have to sell our kidney to buy it.
Release date – September again?
There is probably no doubt about new iPhone launch on September, or possibly November, as it has been with iPhone X. Most likely Apple will not surprise us in this case and in the first part of September we will be facing the new smart phone. Release date should be announced couple weeks before the launch as usual.
