With Apple reportedly working on curved iPhone screens and touchless gestures, new reports now surface indicating that at least one new iPhone in 2019 will bear a triple-lens rear camera led by a 12-megapixel lens, according to Taiwan’s Economic Daily News.
With the dual-lens feature initially introduced on the iPhone 7 Plus, the report claims that the rumored triple-lens camera will boast a 6P lens design with 5x zoom, but it doesn’t confirm if it’s optical, digital, or hybrid zoom. In comparison, the iPhone 8 with a single-lens has up to 5x digital zoom, while the dual-lens iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X features 2x optical zoom with 10x digital zoom.
As already proven with the addition of a dual-lens camera system, a three-lens rear camera would offer more advantages, including greatly improved low-light performance and even better image quality, if the report proves to be accurate.
As far as for this year’s iPhone, rumors have indicated that the 2018 iPhone lineup will include an iPhone X Plus with a 6.5-inch OLED screen and a lower cost 6.1″ LCD model, along with upgraded components.
