Cupertino based technology giant Apple reportedly has plans to launch three iPhone models in 2019. Among these will be a follow-up model of the smartphone giant’s iPhone XR. The other two models, as expected, will be successors of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. It is being said that Apple will be bringing new features to the camera app of the upcoming iPhones. Furthermore, iPhone XS Max’s successor will possibly come with a triple rear camera setup.
The report first surfaced in The Wall Street Journal and said that Apple will continue with its new trend of launching three iPhones in 2019 and it quoted sources familiar with the matter. The report said that Apple is bringing follow-ups to all three models that it launched this year. Although it’s too soon to comment on the specifications of the upcoming iPhones, The Wall Street Journal added that the most high end of the three iPhones will come with three cameras on its back panel.
The other two models are expected to have dual rear cameras, much like iPhone XS. It is worth noticing that if this is indeed true, the camera setup for the iPhone XR successor will change as the current model only has one camera on its back.
But the successor of iPhone XR will also come with an LCD screen, primarily because “planned product has been in the product pipeline for months, and can’t be altered easily”. The planning for 2019 may be at an advanced stage for Apple, but it is not exactly completed, according to the report.
It has also been said that Apple plans to ditch the LCD screens completely for its 2020 lineup in favour of OLED displays, The Wall Street Journal said. We should mention that iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max’s OLED screens are considered to be better at offering contrast than the LCD panel used in iPhone XR.
Considering that even successors to iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR‘s successors have not been launched yet, we should take the word on Apple’s 2020 plans with a pinch of salt because they may change.
