The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are finally here! This new generation is especially distinguished by the integration of a triple rear photo sensor. This year, Apple has put the package on photography. We take stock together on their price, their characteristics, design and technical sheet.
Apple has launched three new iPhone, called iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max . Three smartphones that are well on their way to becoming the new kings of the photo competing with the Huawei Mate 30 and P30 and Samsung’s latest Note 10.
Who says new iPhone, says new SoC: Apple has unveiled the A13 Bionic , a new chip that, according to Apple (and they are usually right) cap at the post generation A12 and Snapdragon 855 Galaxy S10 +. It should be noted that Apple has not ventured to compare its SoC Snapdragon 855+.
The SoC is engraved “in 7nm, and now has 8.5 billion transistors – against 6.9 billion on the A12 Bionic. He always has two high performance hearts and four high efficiency hearts. And it is oriented artificial intelligence. It can perform more than 1000 billion operations per second (one trillion thousand ports!).
The CPU, GPU and Neural Engine are all mobilized when it comes to machine learning. In all this SoC consumes between 30% and 40% less battery while offering 20% more performance. The GPU is also optimized for Metal, with 20% more performance and 40% lower power consumption. Finally, the Neural Engine is 20% faster while consuming 15% less energy.
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are equipped with a new OLED display “Super Retina XDR” with a contrast ratio of 2,000,000: 1 and a brightness of up to 1,200 nits. The screen is 15% more energy efficient than before. The pixel density is 458 pixels per inch and the screen is still compatible HDR and Dolby Vision. Basically, this is a great step forward for the new iPhone screen compared to iPhone XS and XS Max.
On the photo side, Apple has made significant progress again. If the iPhone 11 has a “classic” double sensor at the rear of 12 MP, the main novelty comes from the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro Max. Both models have indeed a triple sensor in the back, never seen at Apple so far. There is a first module of 12MP (f / 1.8 aperture) with optical stabilization.
We also take advantage of a 12MP sensor dedicated to ultra-wide-angle shooting, which offers a field of view at 120 degrees (f / 2.0 aperture). Finally, the last 12MP telefoto module sensor (f / 2.4 aperture). Apple claims that this sensor can capture 40% more light. The front of the camera benefits from a 12 MP selfie sensor, capable of shooting in slow motion and 4K.
One of the other photo innovations is the night mode. Apple has indeed integrated its phones such a mode, like Android phones. It remains to be seen if he will be able to supplant that of Google’s Pixel 3 or Huawei’s P30 Pro.
The new iPhone 11 will be available in 5 colors like the iPhone Xr including a new purple color that accompanies white, black, yellow and red. The old blue and coral colors are no longer available. The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are available in four colors: green, gray, silver and gold, with new textured matte finishes.
The biggest changes were made in the back. The photo sensors are housed in a new square block positioned in the upper left corner. The Apple logo is positioned perfectly in the center while it was hitherto placed a little higher. The chassis is made of stainless steel and slides between the screen and the back of the glass. Finally, in the front the design remains the same as that of iPhone XS and XS Max.
