iPhone XI, XI Max, and XIR CAD-based renders leaked yet again, reaffirm design

“All three upcoming iPhones will have a notch-toting display and a square camera module at the back”

No matter how bad it looks, the square-shaped rear camera module on the upcoming iPhones seems to be heading our way. A new set of CAD-based renders has surfaced online, which are in line with previous leaks and rumours. All three 2019 models – allegedly dubbed as iPhone XI, iPhone XI Max, and iPhone XIR – are likely to mark the departure of the vertically-aligned camera module that we’re used to seeing on Apple smartphones since iPhone X launch.

iphone-xi-max-cad Face up, all the three iPhones are expected to look the same, with that notch-toting and 19:9 aspect ratio display. The only thing that differentiates them from one another seems to be the screen size. The iPhone XI is expected to come with a 5.8-inch display, followed by the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch display respectively. Notably, the screen size on the next-gen smartphones is the same as their respective predecessor iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone XS Max.


The rear panel of the handsets boasts the big camera module at the top-right corner that seems to jut out of the frame a little. While the iPhone XI and XI Max are tipped to feature triple camera setup, the iPhone XIR could come with dual cameras. There is a cut-out for rumoured quad-LED flash and a secondary microphone for noise cancellation as well.


The tipster hasn’t revealed the specs of the upcoming iPhones, but rumours are that iPhone XI as well as its elder sibling iPhone XI Max could debut with an ultra-wide angle shooter paired with a standard sensor, a telephoto lens on the rear. The iPhone XIR, meanwhile, will reportedly have a dedicated telephoto lens along with a standard lens at the back. The camera resolutions are not known yet, but the iPhones are expected to come with a Night Mode to challenge Google’s Night Sight in lowlight photography.

The handsets will run the latest iOS 13 out of the box and are said to have improved Face ID tech, A13 bionic chipset, and battery cell. That’s all the information we can divulge at the moment.
