Apple has announced iPhone 11, which introduces a dual-camera system and a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display.
The 6.1-inch all-screen Liquid Retina display features wide colour support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience. The new dual-camera system meanwhile features cameras that support 4K video with extended dynamic range for more highlight detail and cinematic video stabilisation. And with a wider field of view and large focal plane, users can shoot detailed action videos with the Ultra Wide camera.
The dual-camera system also lets users easily zoom between each camera while Audio Zoom matches the audio to the video framing for more dynamic sound. With iOS 13, video editing tools are accessible to everyone with the ability to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos instantly all within the new camera interface.
Also, a new Wide sensor with 100% Focus Pixels enables Night mode, delivering improvements to photos captured in indoor and outdoor low-light environments, resulting in brighter images with natural colours and reduced noise. Both cameras work together to enable Portrait mode photos for people, pets, objects and more.
Apple’s tight integration between hardware and software delivers a redesigned camera interface, providing a more immersive experience that works with the dual-camera system and all-screen display to let users see and capture the area outside of the frame. For the first time, users can record video without switching out of Photo mode with QuickTake by simply holding the shutter button to start recording.
The A13 Bionic chip performs demanding tasks while getting through an entire day on a single charge, according to Apple. iPhone 11 comes in six new colours, and will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, 13 September, starting at $699.
“iPhone 11 is the next generation of iPhone, packed with great new capabilities in an incredible design, including new Ultra Wide and Wide cameras for gorgeous videos and photos, the power and ease of use of iOS 13, and A13 Bionic — the fastest chip ever in a smartphone that quickly handles the tasks that matter most to people every day,” said Phil Schiller, Apple senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With the tight integration between hardware, software and services, the advancements in iPhone 11 bring an unparalleled user experience at an affordable price to even more customers. We think people will love it.”
