A Japanese site has got hold of some 3D printed dummies of the iPhone 11, which give a very rough-and-ready sense of how this year’s flagship phone would look like.
We previously saw renders of the phone, but someone in Chine has now created a 3D printed device of it. Mac Otakara has bought the 3D printed iPhone 11 dummies from Chinese commerce site Alibaba.
We previously saw on Weibo claimed photos of molds for iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max cases , and we have now found 3D printed samples on Alibaba prepared from CAD data.
There are two kinds of 3D printed mockups, iPhone 2019 6.1 OLED and iPhone 2019 6.5 OLED.
Important is also to be said, that the quality of the dummies is extremely poor, as there has not been a colorizing or varnishing of the finish at all. These are clearly taken straight from the 3D printer, with no smoothing. This is particularly noticeable in the rear camera cluster and the bottoms of the models.
The dimensions claim to be accurate, with both models slightly thicker than the iPhone XS, likely to accommodate a thicker battery for the expected bi-directional wireless charging feature. This is expected to allow an Apple Watch to be charged from the back of the iPhone.
The video compares the dummies to the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR.
We’re expecting this year’s flagship iPhones to start at $999 for a 64GB model, with 256GB and 512GB tiers available. The rumors suggest there will again be two sizes, with 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch displays.
This year’s A13 chip is expected to use an improved 7nm process, offering performance faster than most thin laptops.
