Rumor: Higher-end 2019 iPhone lineup could feature camera bump with triple camera system

Straight from the depths of Rumorville, a new mockup, sourced from Chinese suppliers has gone into the wild, of the iPhone 11 featuring a triple-camera system in a rectangular formation. The formation would consist of three cameras plus a flash, as seen in the Huawei Mate 20.
It’s also thought that this camera configuration could be found on the higher-end iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors, complete with larger storage capacities.
The rumor is also lent some additional credence by case manufacturers who claim to have seen evidence of cases with square cutouts where a triple camera system could poke out.
It’s also thought that mid-level storage iPhone 11 units might retain the dual camera module seen in the iPhone XS.
It would not be the first time that Apple has limited features to higher-tier variants of their devices. With the iPhone 7, the glossy new Jet Black color was only available on the 128 GB and 256 GB SKUs. More recently, the 2018 iPad Pro includes 6 GB RAM on the 1 TB iPad — although obviously RAM differences are less noticeable from a mainstream consumer perspective compared to the color of the chassis or the addition of a triple-camera.
Apple is expected to officially announce its 2019 iPhone lineup come September.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
