iPhone 11 is $50 cheaper than the XR

It's official: the iPhone 11 is the successor to the iPhone XR from last year, which Apple says vecame the most popular iPhone and also the most popular smartphone worldwide since its launch. While a lot of things have remained the same, including the display, there are quite a few changes.
First off, the iPhone 11 starts at $699, which is $50 less than its predecessor. At the same time, it packs a brand new ultrawide camera on the rear, which enables what Apple calls 2x optical zoom out, as it's a 13mm equivalent while the main 12 MP snapper is 26mm equivalent.

The 12 MP ultra-wide sensor has a 120-degree field-of-view, f/2.4 aperture. The main cam has f/1.8 aperture and OIS. New camera features include enhanced Smart HDR and a Night Mode that automatically triggers when it's needed.
The video stabilization has been improved and it's now called Cinematic. Apple says this phone shoots the highest quality videos ever, compared to any smartphone. You can record quick videos by holding the shutter button while in photo mode. The dual-tone LED flash is now 36% brighter.

The iPhone 11 shoots at up to 4K@60fps, and with Extended Dynamic Range at up to 4K@50fps. This with both rear shooters. On the front there's a wider lens for the 12 MP selfie cam, which means you can fit more people into the frame if you flip the phone into landscape mode. The selfie cam can shoot in 4K@60fps too, and 4K EDR at 30fps. Not only that, but it's also got slow-mo recording capabilities, to create what Apple calls "slofies".
Face ID is faster and works from extended angles, while the glass on both the front and back is now the toughest ever put in a smartphone, with a 3D sculptural look where the camera island is on the rear. The iPhone 11 has spatial audio and Dolby Atmos.

The iPhone 11 is powered by the new A13 Bionic chipset, which is 20% more powerful than the A12 from last year and beats the Snapdragon 855 in both CPU and GPU performance in Apple's testing. The iPhone 11 will be available in black, yellow, green, white, purple and PRODUCT(RED). As for battery life, you should get one extra hour compared to the iPhone XR.
The iPhone 11 packs IP68 water and dust resistance (up to 30 minutes submerged in up to 2m of water), Wi-Fi 6, and faster Gigabit LTE. As rumored ad nauseam, there's no 5G on this year's iPhones.
Pre-orders start this Friday, on September 13, and the iPhone 11 will be available on September 20 in the first wave of countries. The iPhone XR will remain on sale, at $599.
