Alleged 2019 iPhone renders surface, shows off three cameras

The pictures show a triple camera setup - a first for the iPhone lineup - in a square on the back of the phone. The flash, cameras and mic are placed in a staggered design, which looks outright ugly (I say this now, but if it's true, I'm buying one without question #isheepgamestrong).

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.

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".

According to the Digit article, "OnLeaks claims the 2019 iPhones are still in Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, and there could be changes in the details when the phones will eventually launch in September 2019". In the case of iPhone XI, it feels disoriented as the two sensors are aligned vertically just like in the iPhone XS and a third camera sensor is placed between the two, but on the side. However, the fact that the next iPhone will come with a triple camera setup on the back will not be changing, until and unless something drastic happens. Apple's likely to launch three variants of the iPhone in 2019: one low-end model and two high-end models.

In late 2018, Warren took a DNA test that was consistent with the her having a single Native American ancestor. Some critics complained that the genetic analysis cheapened the identities of tribal members with deeper ties.

Apple is expected to launch three phones this September, successors to the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max.

It's also unclear what the third camera's goal will be, but Bloomberg has previously reported that Apple was interested in acquiring 3D camera sensors from Sony.

Adding in a new ToF (time of flight) sensor would mean that real-time room mapping would become a reality. The effect this will have on the 2019 iPhones remains to be seen.
