iPhone 11 is the affordable variant of the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, and it's also the successor to the iPhone XR (the affordable variant of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max). iPhone 11 looks exactly like the previous iPhone XR, and it's because Apple maintain the design, dimension and screen size of the iPhone XR in the latest iPhone 11, but the latest phone has a distinct, square-shape back camera module.

Besides having a different back camera module, iPhone 11 also comes with a dual-lens back camera. Apple has also replaced the 7MP front facing camera of the iPhone XR with a 12MP camera in the latest iPhone 11.

Under the hood, the company maintain the same internal storage configurations of the previous iPhone XR in the latest iPhone. Yet, the new iPhone is fitted with the latest A13 bionic processor with a slightly faster 4GB of RAM, and it's also preloaded with the latest iOS 13. Apple also equipped iPhone 11 with a better battery capacity.

Price Of The iPhone 11:
Apple maintain the internal storage configurations of the previous iPhone in the new one, which also means that the new iPhone comes in three storage options of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Like the earlier phone, therefore, the price of the iPhone 11 depends on the size of its internal storage. And the starting price of the new iPhone is $699 (£729), which is for the one with 64GB storage. On the other hand, the 128GB and 256GB variants of the iPhone 11 cost $749 (£779) and $849 (£879) respectively.

Same Design, But Dual Back Camera And Different Camera Module:
Design-wise, iPhone 11 can be seen as the iPhone XR with a different back camera bump and dual-lens back camera. Because the new iPhone comes with the same 6.1-inch Liquid Retina notched-display and the same 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Also, the screen notch, which houses the iPhone 11's TrueDepth camera, speaker and microphone, is of the same size as that of the iPhone XR. The latest iPhone also has the same 150.9x75.7x8.3mm dimension and the same 194g weight.
The iPhone also comes with an aluminum frame, placed in between the glass front and back of the phone. The less reflective back of the iPhone 11 also resembles that of the iPhone XR, except for the presence of a different, square shaped camera module. In addition to its different camera module, iPhone 11 also comes with a dual-lens back camera, unlike its predecessor that features a single lens back camera. And the two rear cameras are arranged, in a vertical manner, on the left side of the camera module.

Furthermore, iPhone 11 also comes in colour options of White, Black, Red and Yellow like the iPhone XR. However, Apple introduces another two colour options of Purple and Green to the latest iPhone 11.
As usual, on the right edge of the iPhone 11 is the power button, right below the power button is the SIM slot and tray, and it should be noted that the iPhone 11 can either accommodate dual Nano SIM or single Nano SIM+eSIM, but the variant you get depends on your region or location.

Furthermore, on the left edge of the iPhone is the ring/silent button and volume rockers. And like other iPhones, iPhone 11 also features lightning connector; for fast charging, transfering of data and connecting to lightning EarPods (which come with the iPhone). And the lightning connector is also located on the bottom edge of the iPhone, placed next to the microphone, in-between the stereo speakers.

Meanwhile, unlike the iPhone XR that is IP67 rated, iPhone 11 is IP68 Certified, which means the latest iPhone can survive inside water (of about 2 metre depth) for up to 30 minutes.

Better Processing Power, Latest iOS But Same Storage Configuration:
iPhone 11 is powered by the latest A13 Bionic processor; which Apple says is about 20 per cent faster, and about 30 per cent energy efficient than the earlier A12 Bionic chipset. Though, like the A12 Bionic, A13 Bionic is also an hexa-core (6-cores) processor, yet the latest chipset comes with a faster processing speeds of up to 2.65GHz, compare to the 2.49GHz of the earlier chipset.

A13 Bionic also packed an high performance 4-core Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and 8-core dedicated Neural Engine. Apple also complement the latest processor with a slightly faster 4GB of RAM.

Meanwhile, iPhone 11 is preloaded with the latest iOS 13, though the earlier versions of the Apple iOS, that come with the likes of iPhone XR and other recent iPhones, can be upgraded to the latest iOS 13. But, like i mentioned earlier, iPhone 11 still has the same 64GB, 128GB and 256GB internal storage options like its predeccesor.

Same 6.1-Inch Liquid Retina Display:
The 6.1-inch display of the iPhone 11 also features Liquid Retina (IPS-LCD) panel like its predessor, and the screen also packed the same 1792x828 pixels with the same pixel density of 326ppi. The display also features True Tone Display (TTD), TTD automatically adjust the colour temperature of your iPhone's screen to match the ambient light of your surroundings. Though the Liquid Retina Display of the iPhone 11 is an IPS-LCD screen, still, it support HDR formats such as Dolby Vision and HDR10.

iPhone 11 also features Haptic Touch, like the earlier model. Introduced in iPhone XR, Apple Haptic Touch gives you quick access to many features on your iPhone. Among many functions of the Haptic Touch is the activation of camera and flash light when the screen is locked.

Dual Back Camera, Upgraded Selfie Lens And New Features:
Instead of having single-lens rear camera like the iPhone XR, iPhone 11 comes with a dual-lens back camera. Yet, Apple still equipped the Main camera with a 12MP (f/1.8) lens like that of the iPhone XR, and this lens also features OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) like the previous one.
The newly introduced or second camera features a 12MP (f/2.4) Ultra Wide-angle lens; which support 2x Optical Zoom, and also has ability to capture 120 degree FoV (Field of View).

Meanwhile, the dual-lens back camera of the iPhone 11 is capable of recording 4K UHD video at 60fps (frame per seconds) and 1080p Slow motion video at 240fps. In addition, iPhone 11 camera also comes with some new features, and these includes Night Mode.

To ensure clearer, brighter and a more detailed night shots, Night Mode automatically kicks in when the camera detects that you are about to take a picture at night or in a low-light environment. The feature is similar to the Night Mode of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Google Pixel 4.

Upgraded Selfie lens:
Though like that of the iPhone XR, the front facing camera of the iPhone 11 also features TrueDepth camera system; for Animoji and Face ID (or facial recognition) as the iPhone also doesn't feature Touch-ID or in-screen fingerprint reader .

Meanwhile, compare to the 7MP (f/2.2) Selfie lens of the iPhone XR, iPhone 11 features an upgraded 12MP (f/2.2) front camera lens. The latest iPhone's front camera also includes a new feature called Slofie. Also similar to the Samsung's Slo-Mo, Slofie simply allows you to shoot 1080p selfie videos in slow motion, and at 120fps.

Also, like its dual-lens back camera, the single-lens front facing camera of the iPhone 11 is also capable of recording 4K UHD videos at 60fps (frame per seconds).
Furthermore, the front camera is also capable of taking Wide-angle Selfie by the press of a button or by simply change the orientation of the camera. It also support Portrait mode with advance bokeh and depth control.

Slightly Improved Battery Life:
iPhone 11 is fitted with a 3,110mAh battery, which is just a little higher than the 2,942mAh Battery that came with the iPhone XR. And because there is a little difference between the phones'battery capacities, there is also a little difference between their battery lives, as it's reported that the battery life of the iPhone 11 is just over an hour longer than that of the iPhone XR, on their batteries test. And like its predecessor, iPhone 11 also support 18W fast charging and Qi wireless charging.
