2019's Apple iPhone surfaces with a triple rear-facing camera setup

2019's Apple iPhone surfaces with a triple rear-facing camera setup

The leak comes courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer, known as OnLeaks, and shows a device with what appears to be a triple rear-facing camera setup.

It's as if they took the Huawei Mate 20 Pro's camera module and then shifted some sensors around so that it looks different. There's nothing concrete from Apple's end, but we don't expect much considering how the company likes to keep a low-key even until the day of the official launch, which will take place in September this year.

The camera setup will include three cameras in a triangle formation along with a hexa LED flash and a secondary noise cancellation microphone.

Forward-looking: 2019 might have just been thrust upon us, but it's never too early to start seeing new iPhone leaks.

That notwithstanding, it's worth noting that the design above - if at all accurate - will likely be an exclusive on Apple's top of the line iPhone, with Digit noting: "Not knowing the scale at which the image was rendered, it is hard to say which variant will sport the three cameras". Apple will reportedly align two cameras vertically and place another one between the two slightly off to the side. Up there is a LED flash and a microphone on the bottom.

It was also revealed that Apple will launch three iPhones this year just like it did last year. But it's worth noting that OnLeaks claimed these renders are from the early Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, so the design is still subject to change.

Apparently this year Apple will be adopting the triple-camera setup on the iPhones. This could be one of the many prototypes Apple is working on at the moment.

We heard first of a TOF lens in Oppo R17 Pro previous year, but the technology seemed ahead of its time. Time-of-flight (ToF) technology is a new way to gather detailed 3D information of an object. It still remains to be seen.
