Apple iPhone XI might have the ugliest triple camera solution so far

07 January 2019

The latest iPhone is something that has been shrouded in mystery, but these new renders suggest that Apple is finally willing to change the look of its flagship and follow the camera crowd, with three lenses on the back and a flash. And looks like that the Cupertino major is already prepping for the next generation iPhones to launch around September 2019 - as the traditions go like.

It is thought that the unusual alignment might have something to do with apple adopting a 3D camera sensor for its next phone.

The 2018 iPhones are still fresh and won't get successors until about 9 months from now.

The next iPhone could sport a three-camera system on the back similar to Android rivals like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The flash is aligned with the third sensor, but seems to have no spatial relationship to anything: it's off the center of the curve of the camera patch.

Before you start panicking looking at this unlike-Apple design, OnLeaks claims the 2019 iPhones are still in Engineering Validation Test (EVT) and a lot could change between now and September. However, nearly a year ago, we've already heard rumors pointing towards this.

TOF or Time of Flight technology is basically the time taken for the light to bounce back off an object to create a 3D map. These models will succeed the current iPhone XR, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max. But there's so much more OEMs can explore with the unique sensor in the areas of AR and VR. It will be called iPhone XI (iPhone 11). While the design itself is not final, the renders reveal that the rear panel will be made of glass, and that the Apple logo remains positioned in the top centre.
