7 January 2019 : If information from previously accurate leaker OnLeaks are to be believed, the next iPhone will deliver a three-camera array with a rear-facing microphone in a body that will be otherwise similar to the current generation. On January 5, @OnLeaks teased “Excitement level over 9000!!! I wish I could show you what I just saw but unfortunately, I can’t right now…” He then shared a GIF of the DeLorean getting ready to go ‘back to the future’, saying “I’ll be back soon…” It’s unclear what features these three cameras would offer, but on the iPhone XS and XS Max, there’s one wide angle camera and one 2x optical zoom snapper.
Apple is planning to launch three iPhones in September 2019 — One low-end variant, possibly the successor to the iPhone XR and two high-end variants, succeeding the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. According to the Digit article, “OnLeaks claims the 2019 iPhones are still in Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, and there could be changes in the details when the phones will eventually launch in September 2019.” So that means this may not be a final design, rather final changes are still possible. Let’s hope so.
The current iPhone XS series includes two 12MP lenses, one wide-angle and the other telephoto with a 2x optical zoom. Together they create the Bokeh effect. There is no word yet on what new features a third camera lens might bring.
While it is too early to believe such leaks, especially with such an awkward design, we suggest that you take this with a pinch of salt.
