March 25 is already around the corner and Apple has been sending out invites for its event as well. The Apple WWDC happens in the month of June every year, and therefore there has been no news on what Apple will be revealing this time. It can be a new iPhone SE, but if we really want to know about the new iPhone models, we might just have to wait for the September 2019 Apple event eventually.
It is being expected that this time around, Apple will not be using any LCD screens in their newer iPhone models, like it did last year with the iPhone XR, and will be moving towards AMOLED like the rest of the iPhone XS and XS Max. But, apart from that, the company will also be changing its camera game as well – moving from a single selfie camera to dual selfie cameras and moving from dual rear cameras to triple rear cameras. Even though Apple likes to keep its own style, it really cannot avoid the industry trends taken up by companies like Samsung, Huawei, LG, Nokia, etcetera.
The design choice can be controversial It has been leaked by some reputed and prolific leakers around the mobile world that Apple can use two ways in order to implement this triple camera setup.
The first implementation can be in the form of a square shape, which will be housing the three cameras and the LED flash. This implementation is already seen in the Huawei Mate 20 Duo or the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Also, this design is also considered by Apple as well, during its EVT or Engineering Validation Test stage. Therefore, the cameras along with the LED flash will be positioned each on the corners of the square.
Or the second case scenario might be the old fashioned vertical layout, that Samsung uses in their smartphones, and has also used in the Galaxy S10 Plus as well. Guess, we will have to wait and see.
Will there be three cameras on the iPhone 11 non-Plus variant?
It has been reported by a Chinese supplier, known as Macotakara, that both the iPhone 11 and also the iPhone 11 Plus will come with three cameras at the back, and will come at different storage configurations, and can be bought at Mobile Corner in the UK.
Apple might be planning to sell the entry-level variants of the iPhone 11 and 11 Plus with dual rear cameras, and the higher storage versions will be bumped up to three cameras. This will be very unusual for Apple, and the 2019 iPhones will make no sense for power users – who just want all the cutting edge hardware in their hands. Apple has always followed the mantra that the iPhone with the bigger screen size, will have the best features. Also, it is still unclear what Apple might be planning for the iPhone XR as well – even though dual rear cameras will mostly be used as always in these “budget” iPhones.
The triple camera setup will mostly have a mixture of 10MP and 14MP sensors, and even though we don’t know anything about the third camera, Apple might be introducing some 3D ToF or Time of Flight technology, which supports AR or Augmented Reality features as well.
