Apple is expected to launch three new iPhone models this year and going by a recent report, one would be the successor to the iPhone XR, meaning it will continue to have the LCD display, the other two, however, will include the OLED display panels. Well, before this report, we saw a prototype of tentatively referred to as the iPhone XI, thanks to OnLeaks. We saw triple lens camera placed in a square module in the last prototype shared by the same leakster and now we are seeing another prototype that also shows triple rear but they are placed differently.
The big difference between the last prototype and the latest one is the placement of the cameras. You would see horizontally stacked triple rear camera module placed at the center. The module includes three sensors+ a circle flash around the center camera lens+ mic below the center camera. The rear side of the prototype can be seen flaunting Apple’s logo. The volume rocker is placed on the left along with the ring/silent switch, whereas the power button is situated on the right. On the front, it has smaller notch and slightly thinner bezels.
These are just the prototypes and according to OnLeaks, the three 2019 iPhones are still in EVT stage (Engineering Validation Test) which means nothing is set yet. So, we either see both the designs becoming a reality or one of them will be axes and the other will be retained. Well, the former doesn’t seem true as the company is expected to feature the triple lens camera on one higher-end model only, so, having the two high-end models with same camera profile looks inappropriate.
Apple launches new iPhones in the month of September so, we have an ample amount of time to foresee some of its plans.
