Apple iPhone XI to come with three cameras on back

2018 wasn't exactly Apple's most successful year, as December saw a dip of 12 per cent in the company's shares. At least that's what a newly leaked rumour suggests.

The three-camera setup certainly sounds impressive, but it's quite likely to push up the cost of production, and therefore inflate the iPhone brand's price tag even further. First leaked renders of the iPhone XI show a weird arrangement of three cameras, flash, and a mic boxed together quite horrendously in our opinion.

It was also revealed that Apple will launch three iPhones this year just like it did last year. Things will start to look interesting from here, and also the fact that the company's CEO has announced that Apple has lowered its guidance by up to $9 billion.

The array is not too dissimilar to what can be found on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, but the lenses aren't lined up in a square format but instead make an interesting triangular formation.

It is hard to say which variant will carry the three rear cameras. Above the third camera is an LED flash, and below it is a microphone. OnLeaks states that the renders are based on EVT (engineering validation test), which means the device design isn't final as of yet.

All that camera technology plastered on the back of a sleek, Apple iPhone leads to a super-sized camera bump that we feel will split opinion. There's no revelation of the front panel of the iPhone XI but we expect Apple to shift from the traditional wide notch to a waterdrop notch, maybe?

Apple will be releasing its iPhone XI this year, which according to the company's pattern will be a major upgrade over the previous generation.
