The new iPhone 11 model looks deceptively real
An iPhone 11 Clone in the Meat
The iPhone 11 models seem to become more realistic as we approach Apple's next launch event in September. This week, Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy has posted a video in which, based on all the rumors we've seen so far, he shows a real-life display of the iPhone 11: an array with three cameras on the back and a similar design to the previous XS models. We've seen many 3D models of the iPhone 11 with the same features, but this is strikingly real.
In the video he shows why this particular model reproduces the rumors more accurately. The most striking difference between this model and the current iPhone is the square camera shock, which rests almost flush on the back of the phone. It looks slimmer than the bump on the existing XS. The image sensors in the square are also larger than on the XS or what we have seen from previous renderers.
There's also a circular mute switch on the side of the phone that moves up and down like an iPad instead of on the side of the page like the current iPhones and larger FaceID sensors on the front of the phone.
Apple has not sent official invitations to its next launch event, where we expect a new iPhone announcement. Based on the previous timing, it is likely to fall in the week of September 9 this year.
Other rumors about the iPhone 2020
But if the iPhone 11 models do not do that for you, there's always the next model of the year. Rumors about iPhone 2020 have continued to flood the Internet, even though it's been more than a year away.
A report on last week's MyDrivers Chinese tech site quoted longtime Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as saying that Apple is reducing the size of the TrueDepth camera and downsizing its score. Another report in the China Times this week states that Apple could go further by completely removing the notch and replacing FaceID with a TouchID on the screen to ensure a truly borderless display.
And the rear camera could be even fuller on the iPhone 2020, as Apple adds a 3D depth-detection rear-view camera to the mix. According to a report cited by MacRumors in Digitimes, Apple has already asked its manufacturing partners to prepare the sensors for next year. The depth detection technology is similar to the TrueDepth technology currently used in FaceID on the front of the phone, but it can scan objects from a distance of 15 feet instead of just 50 cm. This is the maximum distance FaceID can currently reach.
Apple's AR glasses may not see the light of day. Among the culprits according to the report are the glasses themselves, which were far from finished and did not reach the price that Apple needed to make it attractive to consumers.
It is reported that by 2020 Apple had been working on AR or mixed-reality glasses with an 8K display in each lens.
Tim Cook was a proponent of this theory Apple has taken on a number of AR-related projects over the last two years. The company has also invested a lot of time in developing its ARkit mobile AR platform, launched two years ago. The rumored new 3D camera module on the iPhone 2020 would have been the cherry on the cake for a big AR launch this year.
As always, these are just rumors, and Digitimes has had inaccurate predictions in the past. Although the company's AR efforts are likely to continue, even after the departure of the team leader and Hololens co-inventor Avi Bar-Zeev, the glasses may have been quite a hurdle earlier this year.
