Although we have no idea of the name that Apple will use for the 2019 version of its “cheaper or we can more affordable” iPhone XR, potential users include the iPhone XR (2019), the iPhone XR 2 and the iPhone 11R. For now, this latter seems as much as possible, so, for the purposes of this article, we will refer to the phone that uses that title. And this leads to the latest iPhone 11R leak, which probably won’t be released until September if Apple keeps the tradition. Mac Otakara of Japan reports (via AppleInsider) that a reliable source told him that Apple will replace two color options with two new shades for the 2019 model.
If the report is true, the blue and coral options will be replaced by green and lavender. The other options will remain the same: white, black, yellow and (PRODUCT) red. The iPhone 11R renders were leaked a few days ago and the phone is expected to be equipped with the same rear camera housing as seen in iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max versions. That is, there will be a square-shaped module in the upper left corner of the back of the phone. Unlike its more expensive siblings, the iPhone 11R will have two cameras in the back compared to three for the others; The iPhone XR has only one. And yes, there is a small size camera bump. The latest speculation requires that the module in the iPhone 11R contain a 12 MP main camera and a camera with a telephoto lens that offers 2x optical zoom. The iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Max could have a similar configuration, but with the third camera offering a very wide lens.
The iPhone 2019, including the iPhone 11R, should add a new reverse wireless charging feature. This will allow the phone to be used as a wireless charging platform to help recharge the battery incompatible phones, the AirPods case, and the Apple Watch. Of course, the disadvantage is that using this feature will drain the battery life of the host phone. Thanks to this new feature, the reliable Apple Ming-Chi Kuo analyst (currently operating on TF International) expects a small 5% increase in iPhone 11R battery capacity. This would mean that the iPhone XR sequel would look like a 3089 mAh battery compared to the current model’s 2942 mAh capacity. The iPhone XR has the best battery life of any iPhone in history, surpassing even the impressive battery life found on the iPhone 8 Plus.
Apple’s iPhone XR was the most popular phone in North America during the first quarter
The iPhone 11R will be powered by Apple’s A13 SoC, designed by the company and produced by TSMC. It can be expected to be equipped with an Intel modem chip that we wouldn’t expect to see Qualcomm’s return until the models in 2020 are launched) and a change in the antenna system will improve inland navigation on all three 2019 iPhones.
Today’s leak also includes information on silicone cases for “iPhone XS / XS Max“. We believe the report refers to iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max and states that the color options for the accessories will be available in white, black, mint green, light yellow, (PRODUCT) red and Lilac. Currently, Apple sells iPhone 2018 silicone cases for $39.
Apple’s iPhone XR was the most popular phone in North America during the first quarter of this year, according to a recent Canalys report. The phone had a 13% market share on the continent from January to March, more than double the share collected by the two models linked to the second. This would be the Samsung Galaxy S10e and the Samsung Galaxy S10 +, each with 6% of the market during the quarter.
