Alleged 2019 iPhone renders surface, shows off three cameras

Renders purportedly showing the iPhone XI, as it will probably be called, have hit the web, revealing an unusual rear triple-camera setup. While the square lockup might remind you of Huawei's recent Mate 20 Pro, the arrangement of lenses and the position of the square are different. But seasoned Apple watchers will recognise last year as an "S" upgrade year where the company just bolsters its design from the previous year.

The assembly will also include an LED flash and rear facing microphone.

It'll be two full years from the iPhone X redesign in September, which is why we expect Apple to make a few big changes to keep things fresh.

However, we're still at least nine months away from Apple's annual iPhone reveal, so take these images with a pinch of salt. Apple will reportedly align two cameras vertically and place another one between the two slightly off to the side.

Putting all the unappealing visual factors aside, we can not ignore the fact that Apple is jumping onto the triple-camera setup as early as this year. Up there is a LED flash and a microphone on the bottom. The device will be launching later this year, however, its first render leak has already shown up online.

OnLeaks says that the 2019 iPhones are still in the Engineering Validation Test stage, which means that there can be changes before the devices launch later this year. The third camera in the iPhone XI could be used to create 3D models and focus on the subject much faster. Time-of-flight (ToF) technology is a new way to gather detailed 3D information of an object. The effect this will have on the 2019 iPhones remains to be seen. Tipster OnLeaks and Digit India published a bunch of renders yesterday of what might be the iPhone XI, which you can see above and below.
