The iPhone 11’s grand unveiling is probably just over three months away but that’s not stopping one concept designer from dreaming big with a few last minute additions.

Gunho Lee unleashed his new iPhone 11 and iPhone XI Max trailer that comes in a form factor that looks more like the iPhone 5 that the iPhone XS. The three minute-long video imagines what this year’s new iPhones might look like with rumored features like Wireless PowerSharing, improved Face ID and more. Lee also busted out some new surprises like an Air Battery Pack and embedded Touch ID sensor.

So far the rumor mill is predicting some pretty mild updates for the 2019 iPhone lineup. The design is expected to be very similar to last years model. A triple-lens camera sensor in the back might be the biggest change. Other improvements will likely include an A13 processor, two-way charging, battery battery, improved LTE modems, smaller Face ID notch and a few other tweaks.

Apple is expected to unveil the 2019 iPhone lineup at an event in September as is usually the case. The company just unveiled iOS 13 last week which is bringing a number of new software improvements to the iPhone this fall as well.
