Back in January, Digit published the first renders of the Apple iPhone 11 showing the square camera bump. Several media organisations subsequently confirmed those renders. In the latest development, famous YouTuber Marques Brownlee posted a video on his channel MKBHD further cementing the design of the camera module. He got his hands on the dummy units of what he claims to be the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and iPhone 11R.
The primary difference between the devices is the camera. In the video, you can see the new camera bump design, which houses three lenses on both iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max. This is an upgrade from the two-camera setup on the previous generation of the Apple phones. The third lens on the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Max is speculated to be an ultra-wide-angle lens for a larger field of view. The iPhone 11R has the same camera bump. However, it has only two lenses – one extra from the previous generation of the device.
Back in February, noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the devices could come with frosted glass. However, this was not seen in Brownlee’s video. The dummy devices also didn’t show the iPad-like redesigned mute switch. This year’s devices are also expected to support for reverse wireless charging.
Recently, a short video was published by British mobile accessories retailer Mobile Fun, and it showed three tempered glass camera protectors in glossy black colour placed next to one another on a tabletop surface. The protectors are apparently made by European mobile accessories maker Olixar. The title below each of the three protectors reads: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, and iPhone 11R. Olixar lists the three model numbers on its website as well.
