“The 2019 iPhones might feature triple camera setup in triangular alignment and may include a wide-angle lens and 3D Time of Flight sensor.”
Alleged renders of the Apple 2019 iPhones surfaced earlier this year revealing triple rear cameras arranged in a triangular alignment. Corroborating earlier reports, the latest schematics leak of the upcoming iPhone flagship, courtesy of Leakspinner/ Slashleaks, also shows a triple-camera setup present on the top-left corner. Details about the sensor are unknown at the moment, but the primary and telephoto lens should see an upgrade from the current setup.
It is widely believed that Apple might include a wide-angle lens in the triple camera setup, a quad-LED flash and what can be seen as a ToF (time of flight sensor) for depth calculation in real time. As the official launch still months away, Apple might change its design and can ultimately give it an overhaul. Contrary to the previous reports that said the triple rear camera would be limited to the 2019 iPhone XS Max model, even the higher storage variants of the 2019 5.8-inch iPhone XS successor are also reported to get a triple rear camera setup.
Apart from the rear, Apple seems to be giving the 2019 iPhone’s front a small design makeover as well. The Cupertino brand might trim down the notch size, thanks to the smaller Face ID components and reduce the bezels further. The iPhone XS and XS Max successors should be powered by the next-gen A13 chipset and run on iOS 13 out of the box. The flagships are also widely expected to feature reverse-wireless charging that can be used to charge Apple Watch and the new AirPods by placing them on the rear side of the 2019 iPhones. While it isn’t the first time we are seeing such functionality, it will be a fresh change on iPhones.
The upcoming handset might ship with a new charging cable and could support 18W charging but will likely not have a USB Type-C port. Either way, with the launch still months away, we should know more details as we move forward.
