Apple has a new flagship smartphone – the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Its distinguishing feature is its triple camera on the back and it's expected to take better pictures for owners willing to shell out more than £1,000 for the handset.

With wide and ultra-wide lenses, the camera offers a 120-degree view for panoramic shots and for snaps in restricted, close-up situations.

While this is bound to keep many iPhone fans happy, its lack of wider new features - most notably its absence of 5G support - could hamper sales.

So how does it compare to its biggest rivals on the market?

Cost

The iPhone 11 Max Pro is more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G and the Huawei P30 Pro.

With prices starting at £1,149, the Apple phone is around £50 more expensive than its Samsung rival.

By far the cheapest of the three is the Huawei P30 Pro, which can be bought for £799.

Connectivity

As one expert argues, the new iPhone's lack of 5G support could backfire on the tech giant, especially as the Samsung phone is ready to take advantage of the new age of internet connectivity.

The Huawei P30 Pro, however, is in the same 4G boat as the iPhone.

The latest iPhone wasn't expected to be the result of a major revamp, the new device and its focus on taking better photos should keep customers happy.

The new model should be especially good at taking selfies as it has a 12-megapixel front-facing camera with slo-mo video support.

The Samsung's front camera stands at 10-megapixel but both are dwarfed by Huawei's 32-megapixel front-facing camera.
