Similar to last year’s introduction of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, Apple will release three new ‘iPhone 11’ models, Guilherme Rambo reports for 9to5Mac.
Similar to last year’s introduction of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, Apple will release three new ‘iPhone 11’ models this fall. The new iPhones will feature the Apple A13 chip, internally known by its platform codename Cebu, model T8030.
The ‘iPhone 11’ models are known as D42 (iPhone12,3) which will replace the iPhone XS; D43 (iPhone12,5) which will replace the iPhone XS Max; and N104 (iPhone12,1) which will replace the iPhone XR. D42 and D43 will have a 3x OLED Retina display, while N104 will still feature the 2x Liquid Retina display just like the current generation.
The devices replacing the iPhone XS models will feature three cameras on the back contained within a square. Our sources share that it looks very similar to the many mockups that have been circling around. This extra space will be occupied by a camera capable of capturing a wide-angle image as Bloomberg first reported.
Besides being used as a creative option for pictures and movies, this wide-angle ‘iPhone 11’ camera will enable a feature called Smart Frame, which captures the area around the framed area in pictures and videos so that the user can adjust the framing or perform automatic perspective and crop corrections in post. The extra information will be retained for a limited period of time and discarded automatically afterwards, for privacy reasons.
MacDailyNews Take: Smart Frame is going to be a tent pole feature. Expect to hear a lot about it from Apple starting at the unveiling and throughout late 2019 through 2020’s iPhone 5G launch!
