The Next iPhone Will Have This Huge 3-Camera Bump

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.

The next iPhone could sport a three-camera system on the back similar to Android rivals like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. 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.

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

The published images reveal a square camera module that contains three cameras. There's also an LED flash above the side camera.

OnLeaks has created a couple of 5K renders of the phone based on current design details in the Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage - in other words, the final design may change between now and when the phone is announced (presumably in September 2019). We have no sure way of knowing which of the upcoming phones is shown in the renders, but with such a drastic change in the camera setup, it's probably the top-of-the-line model. This could be one of the many prototypes Apple is working on at the moment.

It is not the first time we have heard that the 2019 iPhones could have three cameras, since some previous reports stated that the company could add a third camera with 3D ToF technology in the 2019 iPhones. With major brands like Apple exploring this area of 3D sensors, and Sony boosting its interest here, we won't be surprised to see plenty of 3D mapping hardware and software in 2019. Digit speculates that the third lens will be for a 3D time-of-flight camera, the sort of thing that could give you 3D scans of objects.
