Apple just recently announced three new smartphones: iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. All three new products are already being sold. But Internet rumors and even a few renders of the next generation iPhone 2018. It is not clear whether it’s the iPhone 9, iPhone 11, or simply iPhone. We only know that the novelty will receive a slightly larger screen than its predecessors.
Let’s talk about the design of the future smartphone. For many designers and illustrators racked their brains to try to imagine and draw a design of the future smartphone Apple. But, usually when there’s some renderings and concepts, they rarely coincide with the end result of the device. As you can see on the submitted rendering on some new almost nothing changed, while others design has changed dramatically.

What will be the screen
iPhone 11 is made of metal and glass. He will get bezrobotni 5.85-inch display with P-OLED matrix with a resolution of 2436×1125p. This information is corroborated by an anonymous source, who in may this year said that Apple and Samsung signed an agreement to supply OLED panels for the iPhone next year and that they will be supplied in sizes 5.28 and 6.46 inches.
In August of the same year it became known that the screen on 5.28 inches was canceled. And that the next generation of smartphone will be with a diagonal of 5.85 and 6.45 inches. If we compare with the recently released devices whose screens do not match those parameters, in drawing conclusions, it can be assumed that these panels will be in iPhone 11.
From all this we can conclude that the company will seek to increase the display of the novelty, the case is likely to be much less than the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. And we will see the new design of the iPhone X, but with a slightly larger screen and a smaller frame.
In iPhone X Apple has built its new technology for scanning faces face ID, but got rid of the fingerprint scanner Touch ID. Yes, the new protection system devices more secure, but it is still slower than a simple fingerprint scanner. In 2013, the company acquired a patent on scanner fingerprint Touch ID on the display. Technology meant that you put your finger on the screen and not the Home button.
It is difficult to say whether this patent is related to the first iPhone 5S, which has built a fingerprint scanner or it was a new technology that would replace, familiar to all now, arrange the scanner. But if to speak about the patent, it is described the display with the sensing surface of the fingerprint, which could use multiple users.
For example, this technology would allow certain individuals to access certain applications. It would be helpful for parents whose children often play with a working iPad. Or the company could go even further and use developments in order to study piano with the correct arrangement of fingers on the instrument. So it is likely that the next generation smartphone we will see scanner built right into the screen.
Support 5G networks
One of the most important events in the history of iPhone was the 3G model of the second generation. With the launch of the iPhone 5 Apple fans got 4G. Now it seems that the 5G network is quite possible you may be in the new generation of smartphone, given the fact that some countries are running out of testing these networks.
According to Business Insider, Apple has created their own app to test the performance of cellular networks and multi-channel direct exchange between the transmitters and receivers of the base station using the bands of 28 GHz and 39 GHz band approved for wireless technology 5G. These assessments will provide engineering data relating to the operation of the devices in future 5G networks of wireless operators.
Network 5-generation will provide even greater speed mobile Internet connection. Currently, standards for the deployment of 5G networks don’t exist. Although many companies are already working on harmonization of technologies and specifications. So maybe the iPhone 11 will be the first device with support for mobile networks of new generation.
L-shaped battery from LG
The Korea Economic Daily claims that Apple has chosen LG as the exclusive supplier of batteries for the new next-gen smartphone, which should appear in 2018. According to the source, LG has invested hundreds of billions of dollars in batteries and the company will be ready to start full-scale production in early 2018, just in time for the announcement of the iPhone 11.
And that’s not all. The report also States that the next-generation device from Apple will use a curved battery module similar to the English letter “L”. If this is true, then this case will be the first when Apple will abandon the rectangular lithium-ion batteries, which are installed on each iPhone. They say that this form of battery will increase the internal space, and increase charging speed.
Release date and price in Russia and in the world
Apple releases new generation of its smartphone each fall. iPhone 11 will be no exception. The novelty, most likely, will show the world in September 2018. Considering delayed by a month pre-order the new iPhone X, then maybe the upcoming device will be delayed. But this is all unlikely, especially if the design of the device will not be radically changed.
If you believe the article in Chinese newspaper the Economic Daily, Apple will reduce prices in future updates due to the dissatisfaction of many users and try to sell premium devices at low prices. But how the company is going to achieve this? One smartphone will be a cheaper version of the older brother, with slightly reduced functionality but in frameless design.
Of course, this all sounds very tempting and interesting. But Apple still can focus on a single device, in order not to repeat history with a delay recently introduced iPhone X. So we can only wait. After all, time is still a lot and can change everything.
