Apple iPhone with triple-rear cameras may launch next year

NEW DELHI: After the notch display trend, it seems that the next focus of the smartphone makers is on the triple camera setup. Recently, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei launched its flagship smartphone Huawei P20 Pro with triple camera and now Apple is also planning to join the same bandwagon.

The Cupertino-based tech giant is said to launch one iPhone model with triple camera lens in the second half of next year. Citing a research note from Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff Pu, the Taipei Times reported that Apple is planning to introduce triple rear camera iPhone in 2019.


“the camera is expected to have a 6P lens design”


On the other hand, in a different report by Economic Daily News, the camera is expected to have a 6P lens design with up to 5x zoom and at least one 12MP module. In addition to this, the third lens might support 3x optical zoom. This will be first time when an iPhone will come with 3X optical zoom as iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X all come with 2x optical zoom.

It is also expected that the triple lens rear camera will be introduced only in the high-end iPhone, this means that the third-generation iPhone X or the iPhone X Plus will sport three cameras.

Talking about the 2018 lineup of iPhones, the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that this year the company will not be making any major upgrades to the present dual rear camera setup of the iPhone X.

Recently, it was reported that Apple has rolled out a new support document for authorised retail stores, mentioning a ‘new’ way to fix the iPhone X FaceID issues if they ever come across one. The support document, obtained by 9to5Mac interestingly talks about fixing the iPhone X’s rear camera in order to get FaceID working.
