“The 5 percent increase over the already exceptional iPhone XR means that the iPhone XR 2019 could offer even better battery performance”
Apple is rumoured to introduce the iPhone XR 2019, along with iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max around September. The iPhone XR successor is said to feature dual rear cameras and powered by the Apple’s A13 chipset. Now, according to South Korea-based publication The Elec, the iPhone XR 2019 will feature a 3,110mAh battery, bigger than the 2,942mAh cell we saw on last year’s model. It is said that China’s Ameperx Technology Limited has reportedly kickstarted the mass production of the battery pack. The five percent increase over the already exceptional iPhone XR means that the iPhone XR 2019 could offer even better battery performance.
Furthermore, citing insider sources, the report claims another Chinese firm, Huapu Technology, could do the battery packaging. However, the mass production of batteries of the iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max hasn’t begun yet. This could mean that Apple hasn’t finalised the battery capacities. Instead of optimising the software, Apple seems to be increasing the battery capacities to improve battery performance. Unfortunately, that’s all the information we know so far, but we should know more details as we move forward.
The recent render leak suggests the upcoming XR 2019 could look similar to the current iPhone XR, except for the dual-rear camera bump on the rear. While the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors are tipped to feature triple cameras at the back, the iPhone XR 2019 might be limited to the dual, vertically-aligned sensors at the top-right corner consisting of 12-megapixel sensors, with a wide angle lens and a 2x telephoto lens. The front will reportedly feature a wide notch to house the Face ID module and retain the same 6.1-inch LCD display instead. The iPhone XR 2019 is said to measure 150.9 x 76.1 x 7.8mm and should get the A13 7nm chipset.
