If I’m being trustworthy, and I all the time am, I’m greater than slightly disenchanted with what I’ve seen to this point about Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11. Early info has leaked from a number of dependable sources, and it doesn’t paint a reasonably image. The world’s high Apple insider is analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and his sources say Apple’s iPhone 11 lineup will function higher waterproofing, a brand new frosted glass again, an even bigger battery, the power to wirelessly cost different units, upgraded Face ID, and new rear cameras.

Take Samsung, for instance, which simply launched the Galaxy S10+ and its 5 particular person lenses. The dual-lens digicam on the entrance offers customers an extremely wide-angle lens when they should match extra individuals into their selfies, and the again of the telephone has an extremely wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens along with the usual wide-angle lens. If you suppose 5 lenses is lots, simply wait till subsequent month when the Galaxy S10 5G comes out with six lenses in whole.
While all this is occurring elsewhere within the business, Google’s newest Pixel three and Pixel three XL smartphones nonetheless solely have single-lens cameras on the again. Google is usually lengthy behind the occasions in relation to…
