IPhone 2019: triple camera for X and dual camera for Xr

For 2019 Apple plans to launch three new iPhones: two versions with OLED screen and one with LCD display. The cameras will be updated

Apple seems to have very clear ideas about the iPhones coming out in 2019: they will be three and will have very similar features to what we already saw last year. To raise the news is the Wall Street Journal, which cites sources within the Cupertino company. Apple has already decided on the characteristics of the 2019 iPhones, while it is working on the devices to be released in 2020.

In September 2019, the month chosen by Apple to present the new smartphones, three new iPhones will be presented: two will be along the lines of the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, while the third will be very similar to the iPhone Xr. According to reports in the US newspaper, the two top of the range will have an OLED screen, while the low-cost model will have an LCD display. As already happened with the models launched in 2018. To see something different we will have to wait until 2020, the year in which Apple will change the design of its smartphones, adopting only OLED screens (and showing, perhaps, its first foldable smartphone).

How will the iPhones 2019

The characteristics of the 2019 iPhones have already been defined by Apple, but for the moment nothing has been leaked. The only information obtained by the Wall Street Journal concerns the rear camera compartment. And they are some important news. Apple seems to have made up its mind to equip its smartphones with a triple rear camera, a feature that is now found on all top of the range devices of competitors.

The iPhone Xr 2019 should have a dual camera very similar to the one now present on the iPhone Xs Max, while the iPhone X 2019 with 5.8-inch OLED screen will mount a dual camera with better photo sensors. The triple rear camera should only be present on the 2019 iPhone X with 6.5-inch OLED screen. The third lens, however, will be a simple ToF (Time of Flight) sensor that will be used to capture depth of field information to improve the quality of the shots.

When will the 2019 iPhone X arrive

It's still too early to make predictions, but as has been the case for at least a decade now, new iPhones will be unveiled in September and marketed within a few weeks. To see the 2019 iPhone X on store shelves we will have to wait until the end of September.
