Apple iPhone XI to come with three cameras on back

Daniel Fowler

The device will be launching later this year, however, its first render leak has already shown up online. The flash, cameras and mic are placed in a staggered design, which looks outright ugly (I say this now, but if it's true, I'm buying one without question #isheepgamestrong). The three rear cameras are positioned in a squircle manner in the top left corner of the back cover.

The entire year leading up to the day of the 2019 iPhones' launch is going to be filled with several leaks and rumours.

Apparently this year Apple will be adopting the triple-camera setup on the iPhones.

What's unclear is exactly what extra features we'll get from having an extra camera grafted onto the back of the phone.

Solanke had made 27 appearances for Liverpool in total and but had managed to find the back of the net just once for the Reds. New Bournemouth recruit Dominic Solanke could be sidelined until February with a hamstring injury.

What we have is an insane triple-camera rear design, housed in a square camera "bump" along with a camera flash and microphone.

Is it a good thing? The iPhone Xs and Xs Max are still dual-camera phones, but Apple has been known to be late to the game. There's just too much happening in that little space and doesn't match with Jony Ive's ideas. But it's worth noting that OnLeaks claimed these renders are from the early Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, so the design is still subject to change. But it is something that was expected based on some reports from previous year. However, nearly a year ago, we've already heard rumors pointing towards this. The effect this will have on the 2019 iPhones remains to be seen.

Adding in a new ToF (time of flight) sensor would mean that real-time room mapping would become a reality. It still remains to be seen. There's no doubt the iPhone XI will support wireless charging and have aluminium core - even if it is for the premium models.
