It’s iPhone Day, Malaysia! Today, 27 September marks a significant milestone for Malaysia. For the very first time, we’re getting the new flagship iPhone series almost as early as everybody else. After pre-order bookings last week, the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, are officially in retail channels today.
Apple has in recent years, improved global availability of its products, for iPhone especially. Last year was special. The iPhone XR was made available globally, Malaysia included, simultaneously. The phone subsequently became Apple’s best-seller in 2018-2019.
Now back to the iPhone 11 series. It’s the strongest iPhone line-up ever, not only because of the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but Apple has also retained last year’s hit—the iPhone XR, and the iPhone 8 for 2019.
With the iPhone 11, Apple improved upon what was great with the iPhone XR—beautiful 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display, powerful flagship performance, great all-day battery life, and a fantastic camera experience.
The iPhone 11 takes it up a notch with, for the first time, a dual-camera system; adding a handy ultra-wide lens camera for added versatility. It’s made of the strongest glass on any smartphone, claims Apple, and now features even better IP68 dust- and water-resistance.
To top that, the phone betters the iPhone XR’s already amazing battery life by one hour. Again, there’s no compromise in performance as the iPhone 11 shares much of its underpinnings with its “Pro” siblings; that includes the uber powerful Apple A13 Bionic chip, the new U1 chip and iOS 13.
Offered in a plethora of beautiful colours: White, Black, Green, Yellow, Purple, and (PRODUCT)RED, iPhone 11 comes in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage configurations.
iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are Apple’s first ever “Pro”-branded smartphone, in line with its Mac and iPad models.
The Pro line does everything better—it gets the new Super Retina XDR OLED displays in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch. The custom-designed OLED delivers HDR photos and videos with up to 1,200bits brightness.
It’s housed in a beautiful matte glass back and polished stainless steel band. Now available in four finishes including the beautiful Midnight Green, Space Grey, Silver, and new Gold.
The iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are powered also by the most powerful mobile processor ever—the Apple A13 Bionic which delivers 20 percent faster CPU and GPU performance than the A12 Bionic.
The biggest and most anticipated feature of the iPhone 11 Pro series is of course, the new triple-camera system. It features and all-new 12MP f/1.8 wide main shooter with OIS, 12MP f/2.0 ultra-wide, and 12MP f/2.0 telephoto with OIS for a pro-level camera experience.
There’s plenty to love including a new refined camera app, as well as the ability to shoot cinematic 4K@60 video, the highest quality in a smartphone. The new wide sensor with 100 percent Focus Pixels enables Night mode for the first time. Thanks to the new triple-camera system, Portrait mode is now even better with Wide and Telephoto framing.
But, let’s not forget the front camera, too. The new TrueDepth camera introduces a new 12MP camera with a wider field of view. It even takes 4K@60 videos an 120fps slow-mo. Hello, slofies!
iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max come in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options.
