Screen and design

There wasn’t any big news on the iPhone 11 Pro screen compared to the iPhone X predecessor. The phone retained the notch and thin edges around the 5.8-inch screen, as well as the resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels. One feature to highlight is the new Super Retina XDR technology on the display, which is expected to achieve higher contrast and different brightness levels to suit the display occasion.

To ensure full imager in the contents of the device, the edges are also minimal and the screen still has fingerprint biometrics features integrated into the screen and ultrasonic technology. Another differential is AMOLED Dynamic 2X generation, which is responsible for more precise colors and high contrast. The resolution is equivalent to the already known Quad HD+ (3200×1440 pixels), higher capacity than the iPhone.

In September last year, the photo set of Apple’s new models caught attention with three different sensors at the rear. They are the main sensor, ultra-wide and telephoto, all with 12 MP resolution.


The concept brought by Samsung is expected to be more advanced, with a quadruple-camera. The telephoto lens has 64 MP, while the wide and ultra-wide sensors take 12 MP photos. Finally, the set includes DepthVision technology, with the portrait mode function to record images with a blurred background – the same technology as the ToF camera found in the Huawei P30 Pro.

Additional features are night mode and Smart HDR, which came with iPhone enhancements. However, zoom quality is what stands out in Galaxy. The new feature guarantees up to 30x zoom in on photos.
