Apple mimics Huawei: Plans to launch triple-lens camera iPhone next year

A new report has surfaced that says upcoming iPhone X Plus will measure 6.5-inches though will size up to iPhone 8 Plus which was launched past year. There are no additional details available regarding 2019 iPhone models yet.

Analyst at Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff PU predicted that Apple may release in the second half of 2019 iPhone with three rear 12-megapixel camera and optical image stabilization.

Meanwhile, another report from the Economic Daily News last month highlighted that the upcoming triple camera iPhone model will include a 6P lens design with up to 5x zoom.

After the notch display trend, it seems that the next focus of the smartphone makers is on the triple camera setup.

If the reports are accurate, it will be the first time an iPhone will sport a triple-lens camera.

This means that the camera setup might be very similar to the one found on the Huawei P20 Pro. The secondary telephoto camera on the iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus and 7 Plus is only capable of 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. Expect to see the competition ape Huawei, as Apple's next iPhone will most likely also ship with a third lens. No further information is known about the three cameras as of now.

AppleInsider speculates that the third camera on the 2019 iPhone could be used for improving image quality rather than increasing the level of zoom. The support document, obtained by 9to5Mac interestingly talks about fixing the iPhone X's rear camera in order to get FaceID working.

If you're hoping that this change is something that may possibly come in 2018, consider previous comments from former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who ruled out any significant changes occurring in the iPhone X's current dual-lens rear camera system this year. Apple may launch the successor to the iPhone X or the second generation of the iPhone X or the iPhone X Plus in 2018.
