iPhone 11 has just been launched by Apple changed from the naming, design language to camera features similar to the iPhone 4 in the past.
Apple introduced iPhone 4 in early June 2010. If the previous iPhone 3GS had a glossy plastic back, the successor version would have been made into a luxurious aluminum material as a frame, with a glossy tempered glass on the back. This design immediately became an “inspiration” for a number of other phone manufacturers to follow.
iPhone 4 is also the first device that Apple introduced the concept of Retina Display for display. With a pixel density of 326ppi (the standard used for printing at that time was only 300ppi), the new screen helped sharp images on smartphones, without feeling “porous” if seen with the naked eye.
To achieve this resolution, the US company has quadrupled the resolution of the previous HVGA screen, from 320 x 480 pixels on iPhone 3GS to 640 x 960 pixels. This is also an indirect factor that helps applications on iOS 4 to be upgraded in terms of images, in order to run at the new resolution.
The camera on iPhone 4 also benefits from Apple’s pursuit of image quality. In 2010, photos and videos taken from the 5-megapixel sensor on this smartphone were praised by many experts. iPhone 4 is also the first iPhone to feature HD video (720p) at 30 frames per second.
There’s a coincidence between the iPhone 4 and iPhone 11, when Apple’s 9-year-old smartphone has a stainless steel frame and aluminosilicate glass – the same materials used for the iPhone 11. However, the latest smartphone has a convex camera design. , not old equipment.
The iPhone 4 launch also marks the first time Apple has integrated the front camera for the iPhone. This is the origin of the very popular FaceTime video calling feature later.
However, the iPhone 4 is also a device that has encountered a number of scandals, including a prominent antenna problem that weakens the network. At that time, Apple CEO Steve Jobs responded that the user “holding the iPhone incorrectly” was the cause.
But in the middle, the iPhone 4 still has a breakthrough, which is considered to be Apple’s second most influential design after the original iPhone. With iPhone 11, Apple seems to want the “halo” of the past to return once again.
