iPhone 11 Pro Max Design and Display
Apple is top notch when it comes to displays so we are not surprised that this 6.5-inch Super Retina XDR OLED capacitive touchscreen on the iPhone 11 Pro Max has to play. However, we would have loved it more if Apple experimented with a new type of notch on this top-shelf model.

On the front and back of the phone is scratch resistant glass panels which protects the oleophobic coating and they are joined together by a stainless steel frame just like iPhone 11 Pro with HDR10, this is one of the clearest and brightest at 800 nits screens on the market as at the time of writing this.
In addition, the 120Hz touch-sensing with wide colour gamut will provide for some amazing animations and transition. And it also features the speakerphone, dual camera sensors with other relevant sensors embedded in it.
On the sides are the usual volume rockers and power button, with mute and unmute button.
As of the lightning connector, it held with a reversible USB 2.0 technology, and it will be paired on both sides by a speakerphone grille as well as microphone.
Checking the back, we noticed beautiful glass panel come in colours of Space Gray, Silver, Gold or Midnight Green just like the iPhone 11 Pro. Also, the iPhone 11 Pro Max offers the same triple camera arrangement in the all new massive hump, but we might just get used to it soon enough.
Camera of iPhone 11 Pro Max
We noticed a little difference between the camera arrangement it brings and that of the iPhone 11 Pro. While on the front, they both share a single 12 megapixels shooter with an accompanying ToF 3D camera as the dual setup. While the cameras on the back are not different on the two iPhone 11 Pro units either, they have three 12 megapixels snappers and the main camera offers a wide angle lens with phase detection autofocus and an Optical image stabilisation.
The 2nd camera features a telephoto lens with PDAF, OIS and 2x Optical zoom. And the third camera features an ultrawide angle lens while the cameras at the back have a quad LED flash with dual tone which helps boost their low light operations.
Hardware, Software and Other Features
Apple is not so big on hardware ever since they started making their own chips themselves. There’s A13 Bionic chip on the iPhone 11 Pro Max which is manufactured with a 7nm+ process and is expected to compete against the likes of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Snapdragon 855+ chipset.
The storage options for the iPhone 11 Pro Max are the same as that of iPhone 11 Pro with 64GB, 256GB and 512GB options on the table. Like the other Apple iphones released in 2020, the iPhone Pro Max version will also carry 4GB of RAM too.
But we must state that we are a little disappointed to see that the same 3969 mAh battery has been slapped on this device. Remember that this has a bigger screen to the iPhone 11 Pro, which means more energy will be consumed on this pro max but if the dark mode on iOS 13, chipset and Apple’s ability to tune its devices are to be factored in, then we should all expect good battery life on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
