Apple’s 2019 iPhones are anticipated to look like 2018’s iPhones XS, XS Max and XR, which in turn were modeled after 2017’s iPhone X. The good news is that several reports have hinted at significant changes to the cameras of this year’s lineup.
Thus far, the rumor mill has extensively referenced that part of Apple’s smartphone range for 2019 will feature a rear triple-camera system.
In an interesting new memo by renowned tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, via 9to5Mac, the expert predicts that the front cameras of 2019’s iPhones will be supersized from seven megapixels to 12 megapixels.
Kuo has a remarkable track record for forecasting the specs of future gadgets, and even accurately described the radically-designed iPhone X back when Apple’s phones had home buttons and visible bezels.
Adding to existing reports, Kuo elaborates that not one, but two iPhones will carry triple lenses on their rears. These comprise 2019’s successors of iPhones XS and XS Max, both of which will also boast a super-wide, 12-megapixel lens with a 12MP/1um sensor produced exclusively by Sony.
The expert details that to hide the clutter, Apple will coat the super-wide and front camera lenses in black so that they’ll appear “inconspicuous” and blend effortlessly into the iPhones’ designs.
As for this year’s version of the mid-tier iPhone XR, Kuo expects that the handset will move on to a dual-camera system, as opposed to the current single-lens design.

The models will also retain the sizes of their 2018 predecessors: the 5.8-inch iPhone XS; the 6.5-inch iPhone XS; the 6.1-inch iPhone XR.
If Apple abides its usual schedules, iPhone users can expect for the next smartphone series to be announced in September this year.
