The iPhone 11 Pro Max sports an anodised aluminium and glass design, which Apple claims is the toughest ever smartphone glass. iPhone 11 Pro comes in a handful of colours: Space Grey, Gold, Silver and the new addition, Midnight Green. This next-gen iPhone also has a 5.8-inch OLED display, with the expected tap-to-wake functionality and haptic feedback.
Apple clearly put a lot of energy into the iPhone 11 Pro Max camera, which has a tri-camera set up: 26mm main wide-angle, F/1.8, OIS, Dual Pixel AF; 52mm telephoto, F/2.0, OIS, 2x zoom; 13mm ultra wide-angle, F/2.4, 120-degree field of view; quad-LED flash with slow sync
On the software side, Apple has introduced a new image pipeline that does over a trillion operations for every photo. The company has added “semantic rendering,” which adjusts the lighting on photos retroactively based on the subjects. This helps isolate and enhance facial features so tone mapping can be applied more accurately in portraits. Plus, portrait mode effects can now be applied to subjects other than humans, like pets.
In addition, iPhone 11 Pro Max features a new Night Mode to compete with the likes of Samsung and Google, which uses image fusion and adaptive bracketing — shorter and longer exposures — melded together to reduce motion and blur to make for better low-light images.
On the video end, iPhone 11 Pro Max shoots 4K video at 60fps, complete with slo-mo, time-lapse, cinematic video stabilization and extended dynamic range up to 4K across both cameras. The UI for video has some slight changes, including a new Instagram-style tap-and-hold to record video.
On the front-facing camera, Apple decided to go big with a wider-angle sensor and the ability to capture 4K video at 30/60fps and the ability to shoot slo-mo.
As is usual with a new generation of iPhone, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is powered by a brand new processor, the A13 Bionic chip. Apple says it’s the fastest GPU and CPU ever in a smartphone. Where battery life is concerned, Apple declined to share the actual mAh but did say that it has one hour longer battery life than the iPhone XS Max.
