Apple’s triple-camera iPhone is real and it’s the first phone the company has dubbed “Pro.”
The iPhone 11 Pro comes in two flavors, with 5.8″ and 6.5″ varieties at $999 and $1,099, respectively.
The bizarre-looking camera is the real star of the release. There are three 12-megapixel lenses with varying fields-of-view — a telephoto, a wide and an ultra-wide lens. The variety of lenses makes for a very strange nodule on the rear of the phone, but the shots Apple detailed in its keynote highlighted the level of detail that the new combination camera can bring when you switch between the lenses.
There wasn’t much said about the front-facing camera system, but Apple did detail that Face ID will now detect your face at wider angles. The phones will continue to shoot 4K HDR footage.
Apple has shifted to a three-year redesign cycle, and in its third year, not much has changed with the iPhone 11 Pro looks-wise (beyond the camera square). In terms of looks, there’s a new “midnight green” textured matte finish, which actually looks quite nice among the more classic hues.
Pre-orders for the iPhone 11 Pro go live this Friday and the phones ship on September 20.
