The year is flying, isn’t it? We are already at the end of June and, very soon, we will have a special event from Apple in which the company will reveal its new generation of smartphones to the world. Everything indicates that we will have three new models, the successors of the iPhones XS, XS Max and XR. Much has been said about them, but now the case maker Olixar (via Mobile Fun, which is already selling such cases) showed us some details of what we can expect from the “iPhone XI” (or “iPhone 11”, who knows).
Talking about what we already know … well, there is the infamous square at the rear that will house the three cameras that will have to equip the successors of the XS / XS Max (remembering that the successor of the XR must have a dual camera). Although it is not the ideal solution for many (the level of complaint for this square has definitely surpassed that of any other design element of all the iPhone models that have ever appeared), it seems that this square will indeed come.
According to rumors, the rear itself and this square (although it is prominent) will be made of a single piece of glass – it is not easy to see this in renders, but that’s what the news so far points out.
The renders also show a new redesigned “Play / Silent” switch which no longer moves sideways, but moves up / down – in addition to a rounded rather than rectangular design, a decision that may (or may not) have to do with the space occupied by the three rear cameras.
If the images are really true, they “confirm” that Apple will continue to use the Lightning connector on the iPhone. It is worth noting, however, that the rumors cover at least one new Lightning / USB-C cable in the box, along with a new 18W USB-C charger with fast charging support (such as those currently included with iPad Pro).
Although the small size of the notch in some images (which would be of the successor of the iPhone XS Max), this should be a mistake of surrender even since there is no indication of a change in this direction.
