Not much is known yet about the upcoming iPhone 11, but it didn’t stop the reliable leaker Onleaks from releasing renders depicting prototypes of Apple’s next gen device. The images, which were created with help from Digit.in, present a new design of iPhone with three rear cameras placed inside of a big camera square bump.
The renders were based on EVT hardware
As Onleaks explained, the iPhone 11 renders were based on EVT (Engineering Validation Test) hardware, so there is always a possibility that the designs could be modified later on. EVT is just the first step and it is usually followed by DVT (Design Validation Test) and PVT (Production Validation Test) stages. However, certain features, such as the addition of another camera, are usually locked down at this stage.
The new design might be disappointing for some users
Users who hoped that the camera bump will be removed might not see such change in 2019. Moreover, the extra microphone was placed in the bottom right corner of the bump and lenses alternate vertically with the flash, which some users will surely dislike.
iPhone 11 is expected to feature three rear cameras
It has been long rumored that Apple will introduce three back cameras on iPhone 11, but the presented design is not something that many experts could have expected. However, there could be some technical explanation behind such solution. For example, the increased distance between lenses might allow iPhone 11 to create more precise depth disparity maps than its predecessor.
iPhone 11 will likely come in three different variants
It is widely expected that iPhone XS’ successor will be available in three variants. The most likely scenario is that the top-end models will future the highly anticipated triple-camera system.
