Apple is planning to unravel three iPhones this September that won’t be new but incremental models and successor to last year’s iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR. Touted to be named as iPhone XI/11, iPhone XI Max/ 11 Max, and iPhone XR2 respectively, all the three handsets will likely keep their screen technologies the same as their predecessors and in fact, Apple will only move to an AMOLED display for its affordable iPhone only in 2020.
According to the report by GSMArena, all the three upcoming handsets will retain the Lightning Port and thus, won’t make their transition to USB Type-C port which was introduced lately in iPad Pro. Furthermore, as every year, the upcoming 2019 iPhones will have the most powered Apple A13 SoC which is currently in testing phase under the codename Cebu.
A separate report hinted that Apple could likely join forces with LG to roll out a smartphone with flexible OLED in 2020 that will allow it to rely less on Samsung Electronics, it’s biggest OLED panel supplier.Coming back to 2019 iPhones, the iOS 13 presented a new feature called Haptic Touch and since the new handsets will pack in a new type of Taptic Engine, 3D Touch is gone for real. It will be replaced by the Haptic moment wherein the user can simply long-press on the screen to commence the given functions without the need to have a separate component that was the case with Apple 3D Touch.
The upcoming iPhone XS and XS Max successors will sport a triple camera setup arranged within a square camera bump which will include a normal wide-angle, telephoto, and a new ultra-wide-angle while the iPhone XR successor will get a dual-camera setup probably within a square camera bump. A new feature called Smart-Frame will populate on both OLED models that will click photos from both wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle sensor at the same time. It will present a limited period that will allow performing automatic perspective or crop the image accordingly.Watch out for the September 2019 launch event that will be live on Apple’s website.
