While the iPhone X brought the trend of sporting a step design and offering facial unlock, Apple has become in rumours for developing a new iPhone model for 2019 with not only a dual camera setup but a triple-lens rear camera setup. This new development, if it turns out to be true, could make the 2019 iPhone model looks somewhat just like the Huawei P20 Pro that already has a triple rear camera setup to battle the marketplace of dual rear camera-featuring flagships. Another report claims that the organization is placed to supply an MLCD+ display on the LCD model of its 2018 iPhone series. The newest display panel is reported to be identical to the MLCD+ display of the LG G7 ThinQ.It can also be claimed that the iPhone X Plus, that’ll join this year’s lineup comprising the iPhone X successor and the LCD iPhone model, could have a dimension like the iPhone 8 Plus.
Beginning with the 2019 iPhone, according to the Taipei Times, citing an investigation note from Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff Pu, one or more of the brand new iPhone models with a triple-lens rear camera setup will debut in the next half next year. It’s sure that once Apple will deploy three camera sensors on the rear of its new iPhone model, other vendors would follow the trend and eventually boost the adoption of the triple-lens design that debuted on the Huawei P20 Pro earlier this year. The Huawei offering’s three sensors are a 40-megapixel primary RGB sensor, 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor with 3x optical zoom support.
A prior report from the Economic Daily News suggested that the brand new camera system could have a six-piece lens structure with as much as 5x optical zoom and one 12-megapixel sensor. It’s presumable that the 3rd lens on the 2019 iPhone will enable 3x optical zoom that can help users magnify a subject much more than what they can achieve using the 2x zoom functionality of the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, or the iPhone X. Moreover, we are able to safely believe that the triple camera setup will soon be exclusive to the top-end iPhone model next year. This means you’d continue steadily to see dual rear camera setup on the inferior iPhone models.
Even as we still have several months for the 2019 iPhone models, rumours have widely emerged for the 2018 iPhone family that’s to date reported to include three new models, including an affordable one with a 6.1-inch LCD panel. This new iPhone model is said to have the same MLCD+ that LG offers on its latest G7 ThinQ flagship, reports Patently Apple. The option of the MLCD+ panel over a conventional LCD panel can help the brand new iPhone deliver an enhanced brightness and vivid colour experiences. LG already claims that its proprietary LCD technology offers 1,000 nits of brightness and displays 100 percent DCI-P3 colour gamut. This makes the display panel nearly an ideal solution for using under bright sunlight and viewing HDR content.
Along with the LCD iPhone model, Apple can also be in the headlines nowadays for the iPhone X Plus that’ll include a 6.5-inch OLED display. This giant iPhone model has become reported to really have the same size of the iPhone 8 Plus. Macotakara claims that even though that the iPhone 8 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch display, whilst the iPhone X Plus is rumoured to really have a 6.5-inch display, the similarity in size exists due to the smaller bezels of the brand new model. However, it’s stated that the 6.5-inch 2018 iPhone would be slightly thicker compared to iPhone 8 Plus due to the mounting form of a corner camera. The newest model is reported to be around 2.2mm thicker compared to 7.5mm thick iPhone 8 Plus.
For the LCD iPhone model, Macotakara reports, citing an individual acquainted with the development, that the 6.1-inch model could have a somewhat smaller, 6-inch LCD panel and come with Face ID support. The Chinese source also claims that Apple is placed to bring support for horizontal Face ID unlock with the release of iOS 12.Presently, Face ID works only with the iPhone X in portrait orientation. This needs to be upgraded with horizontal orientation addition if Apple has plans to bring Face ID to its iPad range. Nevertheless, it is rumoured that the organization will bring new iPad models with Face ID support as early as this year.
