Unofficial video shows realistic looking iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro mockups

The 2019 Apple iPhone models are expected to be unveiled on September 10th, but we already have a good idea of what to expect. Thanks to various renders and leaks the new models are coming into focus, and now an unofficial video shows mockups of both the 6.1-inch (LCD) iPhone and the iPhone 11 Pro. The latter should come in two screen sizes (5.8-inches and 6.5-inches), both with AMOLED panels. All three phones will feature the square camera module found in the upper left corner of the rear glass panel. Based on previous rumors and leaks, the iPhone 11 will be equipped with two cameras (Primary + Telephoto with 2x optical zoom) while the iPhone Pro models will feature the same pair of cameras with an additional ultra-wide-angle camera included. The latter is said to have a 120º field of view.

Last week we passed along a comprehensive report about the new phones, which stated that that the revamped cameras will be able to deliver photographs matching the quality of those snapped with "some traditional cameras." And it appears as though Apple has been working hard to improve photos taken by an iPhone under less than optimal lighting conditions. The same report notes that a new feature will allow iPhone users to edit video in real-time.

The mockups seen in the video were created by Shai Mizrahi and Ran Avni (via TechRadar) based on the information that has been leaked to the public so far. What we don't see is the rumored mini-Apple Pencil that could come with the iPhone 11 Pro or be offered as an accessory. A case render from Olixar for the iPhone 11 Pro models shows a sleeve to carry the tool, but the accessory manufacturer has not always been a reliable source.

The 2019 Apple iPhones are rumored to have enhanced water resistancy

All three models will be powered by the 7nm A13 Bionic chipset and battery capacities are expected to get a bump in the range of 5%-20%; Apple is increasing the size of the batteries in order to support the expected reverse wireless charging feature. This will allow the back of a 2019 iPhone to be used as a wireless charging pad to power up AirPods in a wireless charging case, the Apple Watch or a compatible phone. This feature does use the host phone's battery, and there is speculation that the iPhone 11 Pro (6.5-inch) will ship with a 4000mAh capacity battery; that would be the largest battery ever used on an iPhone.

Speaking about the battery, Apple is expected to keep the Lightning port on the new iPhones with a changeover to USB-C possibly in the works for 2020. However, the manufacturer will reportedly include an 18W fast charger in the box along with a Type-C to Lightning cable. Previously, Apple would place a 5W charging adapter in the box along with a new iPhone and charge $29 for the 18W brick in the Apple Store.

Another interesting part of the recent report on the 2019 iPhones indicates that Apple has been able to improve the water-resistance of its new handsets. Currently, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are rated IP68 which means that they can be submerged in nearly 5-feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. The iPhone XR is rated IP67 which allows it to be submerged in slightly over 3 feet of water for as long as 30-minutes. Earlier this year, a rumored Underwater Mode was tipped for the 2019 iPhones and would allow users to snap photos and navigate the touchscreen even while underwater (hence the name of the mode). A few weeks later, a patent application filed by Apple was published revealing technology that would allow an iPhone to optimize underwater photographs.

The video starts by showing off a mockup of the iPhone 11 followed by the appearance of the iPhone 11 Pro (5.8-inch) model. The cases seen in the clip are made by accessory manufacturer Pitaka and are made of carbon fiber.

The taking of photos with an iPhone under water is a good idea. I remember when I was doing that with my Xperia smartphones, and their dedicated photo buttons. I am wondering if using a ToF camera like LG's G8, or Google's project Soli radar sensor can be used under water. And then use hand, or finger gestures without touching the smartphone, or iPhone display.

Using the wet iphone is much better compared to using it underwater because it would be another suit if the phone gets damaged by submerging it.

Even worse than I was expecting. Should do just Vertical with LED flash above.

Most people care what's on this inside, and how the front looks these days. (With the Exception of ugly notches, holes, or big bezels) Most people don't care about the looks on the back of a smartphone, because the vast majority of the people cover up their smartphones with a protective case, skin, shell, or by something else. With glass backs on iPhones, and the cost to repair the glass back of the iPhones. Then it pays you to buy a protective covering. Even if you have Apple Care, it still pays you to buy a case. Because paying the price for a protective case is still cheaper than paying out for the Apple Care service fee. Also the stainless steel sides scratch in no time and look like crap, if you don't use any protective covering. It's why I don't see anyone use an iPhone today without some protection.

That's not true. A guy on YT did a video where he showed the S10, P30 and iPhone 11, and the vast majority said the iPhone 11 was the ugliest and they wouldn't buy it

"Also the stainless steel sides scratch in no time and look like crap, if you don't use any protective covering. Really?!?!? Been using my X almost two years without any protection and sides of my phone are in very good condition, i've even dropped this phone like 4 times. Im propably very lucky because the screen is still unbroken (but not perfect)

Terrible rear camera design, worst still with a camera bump, HTC the fruit needs to copy a new design from you, so make one please

I dont understand, people say iphone 6 is copy of HTC. Metal body does not make it a copy. HTC phones had curved back and cam in the center. Old HTC like M8 and M9 were so ugly, cheap looking.

Don't be a bitter fanboy.

If you don't see how the iPhone 6 looks like the HTC One series phones, then you are purposely being blind.

I think it would look very cool if Apple could remove the bump and make the camera area even with the remaining back glass. That would look super cool in case Apple would only use black glass for the camera glass.

18. oldskool50 unregistered

They could. Everyone else has. They domt want too. They are trying to keep the old look. Funny how the iPhone from 1st to 4th all had flush cams and everyone was attacking others for not. Now its opposite

Most people won’t bother by it because 99% of the time they would be looking in the front display which is superb.

Probably one of the ugliest rear camera designs. It's too crowded and doesn't look elegant at all. Not sure what's really going on with iPhones tbh.

The lengths you go to differentiate yourself from other smartphones. It better take good photos!

19. oldskool50 unregistered

Yep. It will only take good photos. It will never take the best photos. But I guess good is good enough.

realistic opinion looks so bad apple will disappoint customers

20. oldskool50 unregistered

Yep. They gonna lose 20% more sales. But not because the phone is ugly, but because its ugly and overpriced.

I have a strong feeling that the sales going to go up this year. Thanks to the big camera upgrade Also wider angle Face ID Sounds great
