The latest iPhone 11 rumors come to life with more detail about the controversial camera, thanks to a new video from Unbox Therapy.
MacDailyNews Ta: Controversial? Unlike the notch, the square camera doesn't bump us into thinking "kludge" at all. It's a bit inelegant, for sure. As an alternative, we rather want the phone to be just the millimeter or so thicker, so much more battery, and eliminate the camera steadily.
If anyone thinks that a "thicker" iPhone won't sell, I don't know how to sell things longer battery life is consistent on top of the smartphone users' wish lists. We do not see any data showing users clamoring for an even thinner iPhone. So, a slightly thicker iPhone would easily be sold as "More battery and no camera bump!" It's a win-win. Such a thing can even sell better than Apple seems to be planning for the fall of 201
This week, Unile Therapy's Hilsenteger sent a video showing a real representation of what the iPhone 11 will look like as based on all the rumors we have seen so far: a three-camera array on the back and a similar design to the previous XS models. We have seen many 3D mock-ups of the iPhone 11 with the same features, but this is strikingly real.
MacDailyNews Take: It will be very interesting to see what tricks Apple has with its collective sleeve for the Camera app And this three-camera series and how they go about marketing, it is obviously a placeholder iPhone meant to hold the fort until the iPhone 5G super-cycle is going to save the day in late 2020 and beyond.
