Apple will likely introduce three new iPhone 11 (iPhone XI) models in September 2019. Experts opine that the most remarkable change will be the much-discussed triple camera system. However, the Russian smartphone manufacturer Caviar has decided not to wait for Apple to release the new model officially.
Caviar, known for their exclusive mobile devices which are often based on the latest iPhone or high-end Galaxy smartphones, just introduced the Apollo 11 Concept. This time no foldable iPhone, but a luxurious variant of the future Apple iPhone 11.
Caviar smartphone withstands fire, water, and frost
The new Caviar concept is both fires, water and frost resistant. The model’s idea appeared due to both the 50th moon landing anniversary, held on July 2019, as well as new iPhone 11 working title similarity with Apollo 11 Spacecraft, which managed to land on the moon.
This exclusive iPhone comes with a case of black Kevlar, titanium and composite material. Except for a luxurious appearance, these materials also increase the phone’s shock resistance. The gravity offset center will minimize the screen falling down probability while special projections will prevent damage to the screen when it falls flat.
Kevlar layer, the material used to create body armor, has become the main customized case material. Kevlar provides high fire resistance while being able to withstand temperatures up to 460 degrees Celsius.
The frost does not frighten him either, the material withstands an extreme temperature of 200 degrees below zero. The layered customized case structure allows dissipating heat while saving the phone from overheating in addition to protection from short-term exposure to extreme temperatures.
iPhone 11 Special Edition is a true astronauts phone
So, iPhone 11 Apollo Edition limited edition phones are intended to become astronauts’ phones, providing protection in the event of both falling from a height as well as from the direct extreme cold and fire impact.
Caviar hopes that humanity will visit the moon again and will continue to conquer new planets together with the invulnerable Apollo Edition. The Russian company states that it would be happy to provide a sample to NASA limited series or to Roscosmos for further testing.
The current limited edition called Apollo Edition will be provided in 50 copies, in honor of 50th moon landing anniversary. Caviar offers three models, a 64GB, a 128GB and a 512GB model. Prices start at USD 4.400 up to USD 5.110. However, the company states, for now, it is only a concept. Therefore the costs may increase once the iPhone 11 is released officially by Apple.
