We had already said that European models of iPhones 11 and 11 Pro would be those sold by Apple here in Brazil – this is because such models support bands 3, 7 and 28, used by Brazilian operators to offer 4G and “4.5G”.
Well, Apple and the National Telecommunications Agency were quick: the model A2215 (iPhone 11 Pro sold in Europe and Asia) has already been approved by the agency, as informed by the Mobile Penguins.
This is the first time that the iPhone has been approved before the beginning of sales in the United States – last year, this happened three days after the beginning of the commercialization of the device.
Here is the device’s Technical Conformity Certificate:
The model photos sent to Anatel, however, are not yet available.
With this, it is very likely that the iPhones 11 and 11 Pro Max are also already in the hands of the agency being evaluated for their certificates to be issued.
The iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max have been pre-sold in several countries since September 13 and will hit stores on the 20th (next Friday).
Brazil is not part of this first wave, but, due to the speed of the start of the approval process, it is quite possible that, soon, it will already be marketed here – traditionally, Apple starts selling the device in the country before the end of the year.
Update Sep 18, 2019 at 15:08
THE iPhone 11, model A2221 (as expected, the same European / Asian model), was also today approved by Anatel.
Here is the Homologation Certificate of the device:
Now it’s a matter of time before the iPhone 11 Pro Max can paint on the agency’s system, too.
