New ‘dummy model’ hands-ons give us our best look at the iPhone 11 yet

iPhone X

YouTubers Dave Lee and MKBHD have released hands-on videos with dummy units of Apple’s iPhone 11 lineup, providing us our best look at Apple’s 2019 smartphones.

Accessory manufacturers use dummy models to design cases for a smartphone ahead of its official release. In the same way, it’s possible to use dummy models to extrapolate what a device will look like when it launches.

In any case, the videos provide a closer look at the new iPhone lineup’s square camera bump. As MKBHD mentions in his hands-on, both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will include a new third camera, which is likely to feature an ultra-wide lens. Like with the ultra-wide cameras in other devices, the iPhone 11 and 11 Max’s new third camera will allow the phones to capture photos with a bigger field of view.

Moving to the iPhone 11R, the dummy model confirms recent reports that Apple’s entry-level smartphone will feature a square camera bump that houses dual rear cameras.

As 9to5Mac notes, one thing the videos don’t show is the new “frosted glass” design that was described by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at the start of the year, nor the rumoured redesigned mute switch.

What do you think of the design of the new iPhone? Let us know in the comments section.
