The closer to the launch of the next Apple smartphone, more information appears on the web about it. The latest rumors about the iPhone XI say the American manufacturer will take a radical step.
iPhone XI with the new silent mode switcher
The first and most important change is to be a completely new design of the silent mode switch. Instead of a longitudinal switch moved back and forth, the circular direction will move up and down. This can be seen in the latest charts prepared by OnLeaks and CashKaro.
This is a big difference, which may confuse iPhone fans a bit. Apple has used an old and lasting change since the beginning of the series. It is unclear, of course, why the company has decided to redesign this element, but it probably has to do with improving the design of the phone.
In addition to the change of shape of the switch and camera mentioned (on the moment), the design of the new iPhone XI will hardly be different from the predecessor. Only the placement of the microphones will be improved. Unfortunately – as shown by leaks – we can not count on the appearance of a Type C USB port, which was mentioned some time ago. The phone will still offer only the Lightning connector.
The iPhone XI will be bigger and with a protruding camera
The same source also confirms that the iPhone XI will have dimensions slightly larger than its predecessor, 143.9 x 71.4 x 7.8 mm. The difference in length and width will probably be almost imperceptible. It will also be hard to notice the increased thickness of the device, but these data confirm that Apple continues to tend to increase the thickness of subsequent phones.
What's more, the thickness of the smartphone counted with the outgoing camera module will be 9 mm. The camera, like its predecessor, will be strongly displayed, but – which is noteworthy – this time will not be double or triple. The whole module has a square shape with rounded corners (similar to Huawei Mate 20 Pro) and, according to many people, looks terrible.
Three new iPhones again
It is worth remembering that Apple is planning for this year (usually the premieres occur in September) three new iPhones. In addition to the standard XI iPhone, the company will also launch the largest iPhone XI Max. It will differ mainly on the diagonal screen. In the Max version, we can count on 6.5 inches (instead of 5.8 inches), which will also increase the dimensions of the case – 157.6 x 77.5 x 8.1 mm (9.3 mm from the camera) .
In addition to the iPhone XI and XI Max, Apple is also preparing another generation of cheap XR iPhone. The new "budget" phone from the American manufacturer will likely be just an updated version of its predecessor and will be called iPhone XRs. The main novelty will be a new dual camera module that will appear in place of the module used last year.
