2019 iPhones: Three new handsets, one with a triple-rear-camera setup

2019 iPhones: Three new handsets, one with a triple-rear-camera setup

Offering what sound like iterative updates in 2019 could prove to be a controversial decision on Apple's part, explains the report.

Expect to see an extra lens for each of the 2019 iPhone models, claims a new report from the Wall Street Journal.

The new iPhones will succeed the XR model that has shown sluggish demand, which according to Apple was due to weak sales in China.

WSJ does state that Apple is too deep into the product planning for this year's phones, so the company isn't changing major features like the display on the iPhone XR yet.

Suning will start selling the 64GB iPhone XR for 5,699 yuan (around $845/£660/AU$1,170), while it remains 6,499 yuan ($963/£752/AU$1,333) on Apple's Chinese site, according to Reuters.




Apple, like other handset makers, has been grappling with the reality that consumers aren't upgrading their phones as often as they once did.

There will also be replacements for the existing iPhone XS and, even though it hasn't sold as well as hoped, the LCD screen touting iPhone XR. Next year, the report notes, all new iPhones will feature OLED screens.

The current iPhone XS series features two 12MP lenses, with one being a wide-angle lens and the other a telephoto with 2x optical zoom. The Cupertino-based company is said to be bringing new camera features to the upcoming iPhone models, including a possible triple camera setup in the iPhone XS Max successor. Cook, in a letter to the investors, announced that Apple was cutting the quarterly revenue for the final fiscal quarter for 2018.

Unfortunately, there's still no word on whether Apple will be lowering their iPhone prices this year-which would probably help boost sales more than camera improvements would. However, for 2020, Apple will completely switch to the organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, display for iPhones, thereby completely dropping the LCD model, the report said.
