2018 iPhone To Get Triple-Lens Camera Instead Of 2019 Model, S10 Set To Get It Early Next Year [Report]

According to the latest report, both Apple and Samsung will find their way to implement triple-camera configuration on their smartphones. The configuration Apple adding an extra lens during 2018 itself, rather than going against existing rumors that had the move coming next year.

A new report(via The Korea Herald) claims, the iPhone X Plus, the larger 6.5-inch iPhone to be released in September as well as Samsung’s Galaxy S10, which will arrive in early 2019, will both gain an additional camera lens.

The report is somewhat focused more on Samsung than Apple. Only briefly mentions the new iPhone flagship after covering the Samsung Galaxy S10 in more detail.

Samsung, which has a lower-than-expected demand for its latest Galaxy S9 lineup, will consider to equip its next premium phone with the triple cameras and a 3-D sensor to reinvigorate its smartphone business.

We have already seen by no means the first report says that has Apple adding a third lens to its iPhone. Previous reports before this have had the switch happening next year rather than this. If the new report is accurate, then the 2018 iPhone X will be the first iPhone to have three cameras, acknowledged by analysts such as KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo.

Notably, Kuo also said that the 6.5-inch iPhone would ship with a dual camera setup in 2018.

If this report is correct in the fact that Apple will release an iPhone with three cameras but has a timing wrong. We’ll know more as we edge ever closer to the expected September announcement window, so we expect to know soon enough.

Three-lens camera systems are all the age right now with big companies like Huawei leading the situation with its P20 Pro. Next what? Stay tuned for more updates.
