Alleged 2019 iPhone renders surface, shows off three cameras

According to the prototype renders released by OnLeaks and Digit the upcoming device will feature a triple camera setup on the back held in a square placeholder. There's nothing concrete from Apple's end, but we don't expect much considering how the company likes to keep a low-key even until the day of the official launch, which will take place in September this year. The arrangement of the cameras and the LED flash is a bit odd thanks to the microphone which has also been squeezed into the setup.

A further tweet from @OnLeaks claims that the 2019 phones are still undergoing the Engineering Validation Test (EVT): there could be major changes by the time the phones officially launch in September.

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. However, renders also show a third camera placed between the two, on the side. There are two cameras aligned vertically, similar to the iPhone XS. The sensors and the LED flash all fit in a rectangular Mate 20 Pro-styled module.

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.

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. But looks like the name of one of the iPhones (we assume there will be more than one iPhone this year too) launching this year has been revealed. That said, it remains to be seen if the iPhone XR - which reportedly isn't selling as briskly as Apple anticipated - will prompt Apple to adjust its iPhone naming or pricing scheme. 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.
