Here's the redesigned logic board of the Apple iPhone XI

Apple is moving from an L-shaped board to a rectangular one.

dont care, as long as better battery life, my motorola's battery survive 3 years, my iphone less than a year already decreased faster. I know Motorola brand is quality assurance but iphone price should ensure quality

No interface customisation
No option for more icon grids even on 9.7 inch display
No theme engine
No file sharing via bluetoth
No wireless tv prohection
No night mode
No pro mode
Terrible battery life compared to the competition
Proper OS that is blockig third party repairs
Os that dosent alow almost any comunication with another mobile operating system
Android is not perfect os, neither IOS
I think you've got your brain poisoned from that rotten apple

I hope so it will be better than other iphones

Maybe they should redesign their OS to make it more functional and feature rich. No one in their right minds would want to switch to iOS

A13 might be powerful but you can't use its full power of anything expect on Games or editing software.

Real 5G is coming though...

Apple A13 is going to completely destroy turtle slow Android emulator flagships

You pay money for a proper OS like iOS not an emulator,even 50$ phones run Android and 1500$ phones run Android

A13 graphics prowess is said to be 2.5 years ahead of Android

Your comment is just like an iFan in the wind.... Get a life.

APPLE should concentrate on making an iPhone with a battery that lasts more than a day. And maybe throw in a decent camera. Make an iPhone 11 pro. That rivals the P30 pro. But then it probably be over £1000.

Apple made the right call to release iPhone XII during the era of the real 5G. Sure there will be Android phones that will have the proper 5G modem for the 2020 5G and be released a few months before Apple does.

Apple may have shot itself in the foot by intentionally going for a 5G iPhone in 2020,
As you know there are no upgrades hardware or software for any 4G phone to 5G

The most blatant example of this id when the iPhone display went from 4.0 inches to 4.7 inches, all Apple did was increase the iPhone 5 from 4.0 inches to 4.7 inches iPhone 6 and added the non telephony Apple Pay

Any and every iPhone 5 two year contract essentially migrated to the same phone with a larger display.
That said manufacturers learn, so whilst not blatant, the 5G Android phones are flagship 4G, with a 5G modem

I predict that the 2020 5G iPhone will be a tweaked 2019 iPhone no major improvements.
The iPhone XI purchases delay 5G until 2021

Maybe in September 2019 despite this logic board, will the 5G Android models depress sales

There are 4G mid-high and high range phones better than my model, that they are now equipped with a 5G modem is / are the phones I am looking at

Also with sandwich logic board still leave questions about its longevity because of heat dissipation.

iPhone XI Jinping edition?

It will completely annihilate so called Android Flagships in the market, the A13 SoC will make Snapdragon Androids look like stoneage technology

He says using a single battery instead of two batteries increases their size. However, this was proven wrong already by the Oppo Find X. The real reason why Apple batteries are low capacity, is because they are purposely designed that way for three reasons: safety, thinness, planned obsolescence**.

Also to add to this, you can realise that the whole long-strip of the logic board can be shuffled away from the Right Side, and into the Middle. That means you will have two long battery modules on the sides, with the logic board and components in the middle. This gives extra thickness for the rear cameras, which are the thickest component in the phone. It also gives an increased surface area to dissipate heat away from the central SoC. Plus there's no rerouting of cables necessary, making it a more tidy and durable design. And it allows you central placement to do two vibration motors, and two speaker-microphone units. For Android phones, a design like this can have you place the USB-C and Headphone Jack along the Left-Side of the phone, close to the Top and Bottom corners (a la Sony Z1). And just as importantly, a design like this would make using Android in landscape/horizontal mode much much more comfortable and user friendly, which is a great win for mobile computing.

**In fact, certain generations of Apple SoC's have needed more battery, and in such cases, the batteries were smaller but contained higher capacity to cope with the extra needs, and in subsequent generations, due to increased efficiency the battery capacity was decreased. That way Apple has a tight control over not only their previous iPhones, but their competing current iPhones, and plans for future iPhones too. Smart. This essentially makes it so that they never "hit a wall" in terms of some aspects of the phone, so each year there is some improvement however small. The downside to this is, its purposeful slowing of innovation, and that you could easily get out-performed by some or most rivals who are actually trying to compete or innovate.

Real beauty... Sad I won't own it because it will be hilariously priced for a 4G Mobile with a slow Intel Modem .....let me wait for 5G miracle from iPhones
