WSJ: Triple Rear Camera for 'iPhone 11' high-end, the successor of the XR obtains two objectives


The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple's flagship lineup for 2019 will include three models, including 2 OLED variants and 1 LCD variant. The high-end iPhone 11 (iPhone 11 Max?) Will feature a triple rear camera system. The successor to the iPhone XR, featuring an LCD screen, will go from a simple rear lens to a dual camera system.

The triple camera system is visualized in this rendering of the last weekend, supposed to be based on prototypes of the iPhone 11. The story of the Journal today corroborates this previous leak.

According to the Wall Street Journal, new camera features will be an important part of the flagship iPhones of 2019. We commonly call it "the iPhone 11" for simplicity, but the marketing names Definitions are only reported and will not be known until much earlier in September.

However, at first glance, it seems that the 5.8-inch iPhone 11 will not undergo any compelling camera changes as it will stick to the dual-camera system. The three-camera module seems to be reserved for the biggest and most expensive phone.

This would be a change in the situation of the iPhone XS where the sizes of 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches are virtually identical outside the screen size.

The report says that Apple could abandon the LCD option by 2020 and move to an uncomplicated OLED range by the end of next year. It also discusses the removal of the pressure-sensitive component that allows 3D Touch to reduce component costs. This does not mean that 3D Touch will certainly disappear, because the functionality can be achieved by other hardware changes.

The publication claims that the product planning for the 2019 model has reached a point "where the main features can not be changed easily but not yet completed", but the roadmap for the 2020 (12?) East iPhone much more fluctuating at this stage.

Last weekend, this rendering began to circulate and is supposed to represent the developing iPhone 11 at the EVT prototype stage. It features an extremely large camera hump for housing three cameras, a flash and a microphone. The positioning of these features in the round-rectilinear bump is asymmetrical, a quality that is not usually found in the hardware design of Apple.

The device should go through the validation tests of the design and production validation tests before being truly locked and finalized.
