With September and the new course come the announcements of the new iPhone 11. Of the new models presented, the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are Apple’s reference phones for this year. How do the new iPhone Pro compare to the competition? Let’s see it with our comparison of the new iPhone Pro with the best smartphones of the year.

The best high-end smartphones of 2019

Beyond the price with which they reach the market, every year there are a series of smartphones that are the reference of the main mobile phone manufacturers. They are smartphones that by design, performance and ambition, are postulated to be the best high-end phones of the year. These are the smartphones that we have chosen for this comparison:

Strange triple camera in a colored glass rear

One of the unknowns around new iPhone 11 Pro It was on the design side, specifically the rear, where the rumored arrival of a triple camera system had raised quite a bit of dust.

Finally Apple has unveiled a solution that offers better sensations live than in recreations thanks to the fact that it is manufactured in a single piece and with textured finish for glass, as Sony for example has done in several generations of its devices.

For the rest, there are not excessive news but there is something outstanding: the volume and dimensions of the new iPhone 11 Pro are slightly modified upwards, including thickness and weight. They are very small differences but they help us to intuit the improvements of the cameras (the size of the sensors) as well as an increase in the capacity of the batteries.

OLED displays for everyone in the high-end

Not a single one of the high-end with the best features that we have selected for this comparison renounces the packaging that OLED technology gives in its different versions. In the case of the new iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, it should be noted that we are facing an HDR panel with a very high sustained maximum brightness, 800 nits, and a peak with HDR of 1200 nits.

Apple again lags behind most of the competition in pixel density but is once again a benchmark in panel quality

At the head of the most forceful panels is Sony, with a OLED HDR panel with 4K resolution that it is worth having the best pixel density by far. Apple maintains the density of last year’s iPhone XS, so it is only behind Huawei in pixel density with its P30 Pro model as well as the Xiaomi Mi 9.

Regarding the protection of the devices, the new iPhones boast of a more resistant glass, while the global protection is of IP68, another improvement over the previous generation models.

More processing power for Machine Learning tasks

With the new iPhones each year, Apple launches a new generation of home processors. The new Apple A13 Bionic a priori it will once again be a reference at the power level and once again a demonstration of the excellent work of the company in this regard, something that goes more unnoticed than other sections, but which is key for improvements associated with machine learning.

iPhone 11 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S10 + vs Huawei P30 Pro vs OnePlus 7 Pro vs Xiaomi Mi9

Without official data on the amount of RAM, this year the iPhone 11 Pro has rivals with a very prominent amount and that except in the case of Google’s Pixel, it does not fall below 6 GB. The standard internal memory, 64 GB, is also somewhat scarce compared to its main rivals with Android.

Another table that the new iPhone 11 Pro top is no longer so positive. The new iPhones, just with the recent Galaxy Note 10+ close, they are by far the most expensive high-end smartphones, also counting with the important disadvantage that its price does not vary at least until a year later, something that rivals do, which makes them equipment with a great quality / price ratio compared to the iPhone 11 Pro.

Apple joins the triple wide-angle camera

Last year’s star combination in high-end and even mid-range Android smartphones, with the exception of Google’s Pixel, that is, the triple camera with wide angle and tele lens, is the one that Apple adopts in these new iPhone 11 Pro.

The sensors remain at 12 MP but improve size, brightness in the case of TV and enough aids at the level of image processing. Along with Google, Apple is the company that most effectively and effectively applies machine learning and AI to its computers.
