It seems dual-camera setup is not enough for Apple. Its been reported that the company is planning to release at least one iPhone with triple camera setup in the second half 2019, according to the Taipei Times report.
The report shows a research note from Yuanta Securities, which claims that Apple might launch an iPhone with three cameras. It will sport a rear 12-megapixel cameras sensors and optical image stabilization, which will make the clicked photos less blurry and delivers smoother video footage without jerks.
According to Chinese report from the Economic Daily News last month, the camera system will come with a 6P lens design which will go up to 5x zoom. This could be a reserved feature which Apple has kept it for the high-end iPhones. If this rumor turns true then we can expect triple-camera module on a third-generation iPhone X or on iPhone X Plus which is expected to launch sometime in September 2019.
Huawei was the first company who came up with the triple-camera setup. The company has launched its P20 Pro smartphone with three-camera sensors, which includes a 40-megapixel lens, a 20-megapixel monochrome lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens which sports 3x optical zoom.
It's also possible that the third camera would be used to power advanced mapping systems or range-finding. This could improve ARKit applications and create new camera effects, AppleInsider said.
Anyone who is hoping this might be a 2018 move let us inform you that former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has already ruled out any significant changes occurring to the iPhone X's current dual-lens rear camera system this year.
Apple has released its $1000 iPhone back in 2017 and its only been six months, but the speculation is already started flooding the internet about its successor. Rumors have claimed that the company is planning to release a 6.1-inch iPhone next year as a follow up to the 10th anniversary iPhone X.
The second-generation iPhone X is expected to feature a bigger display, yet it may have a cheaper price point at just $550 (£550). The 6.1-inch screen is said to be the largest iPhone ever.
