iPhone upgraders, put your money away. Whereas Apple’s (surprisingly ugly) iPhone 11 affords some solid improvements, we all know one thing much better is coming. And that information simply acquired cranked up one other notch.
Turning heads is acclaimed trade insider Ming-Chi Kuo. In a new report by MyDrivers, Kuo reveals Apple is redesigning its iPhones with the iPhone 11 being the last model to look like the iPhone X. And that is only half the story.
According to him, Apple has developed a new front-facing camera lens which will allow it to shrink its TrueDepth camera array and, in turn, significantly reduce the size of the iPhone’s polarising notch. This may bring it in-line with rivals whereas still retaining its class-leading Face ID facial recognition system.
Along with this, Kuo states that Apple will fit these iPhones with a completely new camera system made up of a seven-element lens system. By contrast, while moving to a triple-lens array, the iPhone 11 is predicted to retain a six-element lens for its main camera similar to the iPhone XS and iPhone X before it.
Kuo teases that each the notch and camera modifications are just a part of a wider redesign, however doesn’t build on the detail he has already offered previously, such as their new screen sizes and the iPhone XR’s jump to OLED. JPMorgan recently backed this information and went a step further, stating that Apple will introduce 5G across all models while we all know all 2019 iPhones will likely be limited to 4G.
