Apple 'to launch triple-camera iPhone next year'

iPhone 2019 again rumoured to offer triple-lens camera – but do we need it?

AppleInsider speculates that the third camera on the 2019 iPhone could be used for improving image quality rather than increasing the level of zoom.

With the iPhone X being a major success and experiencing large volumes of shipments despite its hefty price tag, rumors surrounding new iPhones are already floating around.

Apple's 2019 iPhone could come with a triple-camera setup. Citing a research note from Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff Pu, the Taipei Times reported that Apple is planning to introduce triple rear camera iPhone in 2019.

The report does not provide any additional details with regards to the specs of the device.

Last month the Economic Daily News in China suggested there'd be a 6P lens design with at least one 12-megapixel headline with a 5x zoom. The two reports independently arrived at the same three 12-megapixel camera setup, but Pu's note also predicts OIS. At the moment, the iPhone 8 with a single camera has the features of a five-fold digital zoom, but more "senior" iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X with dual cameras 2 x optical and 10 x digital zoom. I've been playing with that phone for the last two weeks, and let me tell you somethin': It is awesome just how much that third lens can offer prosumers looking for an extra kick in their photography.

Would you want a third camera on an iPhone? Flagship phones that come packed with a trio of lenses, an idea that Huawei has begun pioneering with the recent release of the P20 Pro. However, with the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X camera, the company has given the software tweaks to get many portrait effects. The report further claims that Huawei is developing a low-end model of the P20 Pro with three cameras on the back, although the launch date has not been made clear.
