These terminals arrive with panels OLED of 5.8 and 6.5 inches with a luminosity of 1200 nits and 2,000,000: 1 contrast, it is still quite sad that they will be available with starting capabilities of 64 GB going directly to 256 GB and 512 GB not expandable, this model is able to resist up to 4 meters deep, continue to use the Lightning proprietary port, and in terms of autonomy, promise to offer up to 4 and 5 additional hours of autonomy compared to their previous generation homonyms (iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max), while in terms of fast charging they are in line with 18W.

The starting price of iPhone 11 Pro (64GB storage) is 1,159 euros in front of 1,259 euros of iPhone 11 Pro Max, which amount, respectively, to € 1,320/€ 1,429 for the 256GB model and € 1,559/€ 1,659 for the 512GB.
