New iPhone 11 is expected to succeed the iPhone Xs later this year; Apple typically announces its new smartphones in September and it is presumed 2019 will be no different.
Although the presumably titled iPhone 11 is not anticipated to be unwrapped for several months, that has not stopped myriad rumours circulating about the fresh upgrades it could have in store for fans.
Apple has been heavily tipped to be planning radical camera improvements for its next flagship handset.
Back in January claimed renders of Apple’s next device surfaced courtesy of Digit.in and OnLeaks and displayed the American hardware with three camera sensors on its rear.
The trio of lenses were shown in a square housing on the phone’s rear and was similar in shape to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s photography module.
Most notably, the three cameras were not stacked vertically; instead they were positioned in a triangle format.
The images showcased by Digit.in and OnLeaks were said to be accurate by tipster Ice Universe on Twitter – The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg have also both insisted at least one model of Apple’s next batch of iPhones will tout a triple camera system.
Most recently, further credence has been added to the idea of Apple adding a further lens to its next premium smartphone thanks to new alleged case moulds that were pictured on Chinese site Weibo.
The moulds later appeared on SlashLeaks and showed what could be the successors to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max respectively due to the noticeable difference in screen sizes between the pair.
The front and back of the moulds were displayed – the face of the device was shown to look incredibly similar to Apple’s current flagship duo due to a reminiscent notch and all-screen design.
The rear of the hardware presented a similar camera layout to that already displayed by Digit.in and OnLeaks; three camera sensors were shown in a triangle shape.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned analyst from TF International Securities, recently issued a research note regarding Apple’s next iPhones that was obtained by MacRumors.
Kuo said the rear snappers on what is assumed to be called the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max would be comprised of a primary, telephoto and an ultra wide-angle lens.
The analyst stated the new sensor would be 12-megapixels and, if accurate, means Apple could launch a huge challenge to the Galaxy S10 later this year.
Samsung’s standard S10 and S10+ devices similarly have a trio of cameras on their rear that perform the same functions as claimed for the next iPhone.
If Apple does put an ultra wide-angle module on its next premium devices, it would provide its legion of faithful fans a way of capturing incredibly unique images.
Express.co.uk has tested several Android phones that already have such a sensor such as the Galaxy S10+, LG G7 in addition to the Huawei P30 Pro and we have adored the extra functionality it brings.
In addition to updating the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, Kuo also insisted the American tech giant is planning to release a successor to the iPhone XR later this year.
He added this device may only come with a dual-camera system on its back – no mention of an ultra wide-angle system was made here, suggesting the next iPhone XR may tout a primary and telephoto system.
The notable analyst has also iterated all of Apple’s next iPhones will come with an improved selfie sensor that is 12-megapixels as opposed to the current module on the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and XR that is seven-megapixels.
While myriad rumours and leaks have emerged surrounding Apple’s next iPhones, it is worth noting nothing about such devices has been officially confirmed.
