Apple iPhone 11 vs 11 Pro series: What's different?

Apple unveiled the new line of mobiles-- the iPhone 11, the 11 Pro and the 11 Pro Max-- on September 10 in Cupertino.

During the keynote presentation, Apple specifically mentioned that they don't just loosely use 'Pro' for their products and have used the iPad Pro (2018), I believe it. 

Here are differences between the generic iPhone 11 and the 11 Pro series.

Design, display and build quality:
Apple iPhone 11 sports a 6.1-inch (diagonal) Liquid Retina HD LCD multi‑touch display with IPS technology having 1792x828-pixel resolution and a pixel density of 326 ppi (pixels per inch) and 625 nits brightness.

On the back, the iPhone 11 flaunts dual-camera module on the top left corner with matte finish and rest of the shell is glossy made of glass and aluminium, which by the way is 100% recyclable, making it one of the most eco-friendly phone. It comes IP68 rating with water-resistant up to two meters close to 30 minutes.
