“The next-gen iPhones are also expected to come in three models that will most likely be announced later this year”
Another set of renders of the upcoming iPhone have surfaced, and they look completely different from the ones leaked a few days back. However, it’s worth mentioning that the new images also reveal the next-gen Apple phone – allegedly dubbed the iPhone XI – with triple-rear camera setup. According to the latest renders published by CompareRaja and OnLeaks, the iPhone XI will have the rear cameras aligned horizontally in the middle, instead of in a triangular formation at the top-right corner. Conspicuously, the LED flash is missing on the latest renders.
Furthermore, the renders also reveal the fascia of the iPhone XI that seems to retain the notch design and bezel-less screen. However, the cut-out looks smaller than previous models, thereby suggesting the handset would offer more screen real estate than the current generation of iPhones. It could be because of a new Face ID sensor that works behind the display, though it has not been confirmed for use in future iPhone models. As for the iPhone XI overall design, the edges on the back appear a little more curved than in previous Apple models. However, several familiar elements – such as glass on either side, a power button on the left edge, and a volume rocker and alert slider both on the right spine – can be seen in the new renders.
Notably, the previous renders of the iPhone XI were also leaked by the same source (OnLeaks), but it clarifies by saying that “we are very early in the production process and the three 2019 iPhones are still in EVT stage (Engineering Validation Test) which means nothing is set in the stone yet.” In other words, the new iPhone XI renders do not contradict the one from last week and that these only show the designs Apple is experimenting with. In fact, either or even both of them can be scrapped in favour of a new one.
In related news, Apple is really struggling with the sales of its 2018 iPhones (iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR). The Cupertino-based firm had mediocre results with them in most countries, including India. The latest market research by Counterpoint reveals that the Apple iPhone’s demand fell as much as 50 percent compared to 2017. As a result, the company now has a market share of just 1.2 percent in the country, which is lowest since 2014. Apple would really be pinning all its hope on the 2019 iPhones that are expected to launch in September.
