Apple iPhone XI to come with three cameras on back

The very first render of what might be one of Apple's 2019 iPhones has surfaced online. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max are still dual-camera phones, but Apple has been known to be late to the game.

According to the leak, Apple plans to feature a triple rear-camera setup in a square camera unit that'll feature a rather large camera bump. But seasoned Apple watchers will recognise last year as an "S" upgrade year where the company just bolsters its design from the previous year. The renders reveal a triple-camera setup arranged in a triangle shape (we've seen weird setups arranged in L-shapes too). The arrangement of the cameras and the LED flash is a bit odd thanks to the microphone which has also been squeezed into the setup.




That notwithstanding, it's worth noting that the design above - if at all accurate - will likely be an exclusive on Apple's top of the line iPhone, with Digit noting: "Not knowing the scale at which the image was rendered, it is hard to say which variant will sport the three cameras". The sensors and the LED flash all fit in a rectangular Mate 20 Pro-styled module.

OnLeaks has created a couple of 5K renders of the phone based on current design details in the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage - in other words, the final design may change between now and when the phone is announced (presumably in September 2019). In fact, a recent report by Bloomberg suggested that Apple is looking to adopt long-distance 3D TOF technology in its upcoming iPhones. However, it is likely that this is one of the most powerful models. Time-of-flight (ToF) technology is a new way to gather detailed 3D information of an object. But there's so much more OEMs can explore with the unique sensor in the areas of AR and VR.
