The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to announce three new iPhones this year under the iPhone 11 lineup. Two of which could get a new triple camera set up at the back.
With the likes of Samsung, Google and Huawei already taking a march in the flagship space, 2019 appears to be turning out a crucial year for Apple. And faced by this increased competition, the smartphone maker is being tipped to come out with a revamped iPhone line-up which will if rumours are to be true could bring with it an all-new three camera set up at the back.
The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to announce three new iPhones this year under the iPhone 11 lineup, and at least two of these are pegged to bring with them three cameras at the back. These two will most likely be the successors to the current generation Apple flagships — the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.
The leak comes courtesy of trusted Japanese tipster, Mac Otakara who has previously leaked accurate information about Apple products well in advance. As per the blog, these new iPhones from the 2019 line-up is could come with a triple camera system which will be held together in a new square-shaped enclosure in the upper left-hand corner of the phones. The report further adds that the camera system could be very much like the one found on the Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro that is comprised of three different lenses — a regular wide angle lens, telephoto lens, an ultra wide-angle lens, and an LED flash.
What gives this report more credibility is the fact that this isn’t the first time we are hearing of such a camera system on the upcoming iPhones. Earlier, tipster @OnLeaks too had tweeted renders of an upcoming iPhone sporting a similar camera set up.
If indeed true, the inclusion of such a camera set up on the phone will make things pretty interesting for the market as it will give the upcoming iPhones a big boost in their fight against the Android flagships. With the likes of the Galaxy S10 and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the premium flagship segment already has devices that bring more than two cameras on them, and with the likes of Nokia recently announcing the penta-camera setup 9 PureView, it probably is time for Apple to bring out the big guns and join the cameraphone race.
