Latest iPhone leak reinforces suggestion of asymmetrical square camera bump

Latest iPhone leak reinforces suggestion of asymmetrical square camera bump”

By now, it's clear that Apple will keep the 2019 iPhone crop's design similar to last year's edition, yet boost the camera prowess of the handsets significantly to ward off the onslaught of super zooms and wide angles, yellow pixel revolutions, and the like, that Huawei, Samsung and others are constantly coming up with.

Credit: MacotakaraBloomberg's Mark Gurman, following up on a tweet that showed off alleged case moldings for the three iPhone 11 models, shared a picture on Twitter that reveals four of the colors apparently in Apple's plans for this year's successor to the iPhone XR.

The green and lavender colors take the place of last year's blue and coral color options.

The image cements the speculations of the two iPhones, presumably the iPhone XS and XS Max successors, sporting square camera bump on the top-left corner at the back. Last year's models came in silver, space gray and gold. It remains to be seen if Apple will add a new color. The latest publication to make this claim was Bloomberg, which also stated that the 6.1-inch LCD model (the successor to the iPhone XR) will feature two rear cameras instead of one. Both iterations of the iPhone 11 are expected to have three cameras set up in a triangular pattern while the next iPhone XR will have just two cameras on the back.

Previously, it was believed that this design approach would be necessary because of the upgrade to a triple-camera system on the back, but right now it looks like Apple wants to use it for a dual-camera configuration too.

Meanwhile, more case renders have surfaced over on SlashLeaks that give us an idea of what the upcoming device's camera might look like while decked out in a third party housing (it still ain't pretty, as it turns out).
