Apple to Introduce a Three-Camera Setup With the Next iPhone Flagship

Apple planning to launch three new iPhones in 2019

The new line-up will include a successor to the iPhone XR that will be a cut-price version of the device featuring an LCD screen, the Wall Street Journal reported. Huawei's Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro, launched past year, carry three rear cameras. It isn't clear whether Apple is planning to introduce any major features for the iPhone XR successor, or whether it will just be all about spec upgrades.

"We think 2019 could be the past year the iPhone uses the iPhone X design architecture, in preparation for initial hardware specs for 5G (sub-6GHz) and AR (augmented reality), before greater architecture upgrades in 2020F for 5G and a more comprehensive AR system", she added.

There will also be replacements for the existing iPhone XS and, even though it hasn't sold as well as hoped, the LCD screen touting iPhone XR.

Apple's current flagship iPhone is the iPhone XS Max but there is very little separating the iPhone XS Max and the smaller iPhone XS.

Such widespread price cuts are not uncommon around shopping festivals like Single's Day in November, but these cuts stand out as they affect Apple's latest XS and XR models that were released only months ago, said Mo Jia, a Canalys analyst who tracks China's smartphone industry.

Come 2020, Apple could drop the LCD model and shift its entire iPhone line to OLED displays, some of the people said.

While the LCD display maybe similar to the current iPhone XR, the new budget model will have two rear cameras instead of the one in the iPhone XR.

So. what do you think about this early picture of the 2019 iPhones?

The news of the lineup also comes on the heels of several top Chinese retailers announcing they are slashing iPhone prices after the company's revenue warning and production cut.

Today's report follows an earlier investor note by Ming-Chi Kuo, in which he cut down shipment estimates for the iPhone.

Apple isn't going down easy.
