September is still far away, but today a reliable source presents the first picture of the new iPhone 2019 design. Especially the triple camera stands out.
First look at the iPhone 2019 design
Now that the new year has really started, the rumor mill about the new iPhone is slowly starting to get underway again. The well-known tasty OnLeaks comes in collaboration with Digit today with the first render of the device, which would be based on internal information from Apple.
The image clearly shows that Apple has big plans with the camera lens of the device. The lens becomes square instead of a rectangle so that a third lens can be added, and the flash is included in this camera shot. There is also a small microphone at the bottom right.
This results in a big bump on the back of the device, which at first sight looks a bit remarkable. Apple has been experimenting for years with the size and position of the camera lens, so it would not be surprising if OnLeaks is right.
The well-known well emphasized that the image is made on the basis of information that is still being experimented with within Apple. Because it is still so early in the year, not all decisions are made about the iPhone 2019. The camera seems to be one of them. The telecom specialist has a good track record and previously predicted the design of the iPad Pro 2018 months before release. He also leaked some specifications of the iPhone X in 2017.
The third camera lens on iPhone 2019 is plausible
However, such a test shows that the chance of a third camera on the new iPhone is great. These kinds of large new functions are usually determined before a corresponding design is designed.
Why Apple would opt for this remarkable design remains unclear for the time being. For example, the company might need the extra space between the lenses, which is in line with a rumor that the new iPhone gets an extra lens to measure the depth. In addition, an extra lens helps with taking pictures in dark environments and can raise the quality of ARKit to a higher level.
