It seems like this year’s iPhone XR may actually pack an extra camera sensor this year. According to the folks over at Wccftech, via ITHome, a Chinese publication, the iPhone XR is expected to pack a 2x telephoto camera.
These leaks, are allegedly being sourced via a supply chain in China, the Chinese publication suggests and could be a strong hint for what we could expect from the iPhone XS and XS Max’s successors this year. With the iPhone XR featuring a dual camera setup on its rear, Apple would be a whole lot more comfortable adding an extra sensor to the 2019 iPhone XS and XS Max successors.
Telephoto cameras have been all the rage since the inception of dual-camera setups. And while they’ve morphed and taken on different tasks and forms over the past couple of years, I would be happier to see this year’s iPhone XR featuring an ultra-wide camera rather than a telephoto one, but then again, we’re talking about Apple here.
I can’t wait to see what the future holds, especially with all the renders of the iPhone XS successors being leaked from all sides. With the smartphone market pushing ahead of their 2018 party tricks, Apple is definitely wary of the heated competition of 2019. With four to five months left to clock into the launch of the new successors, what Apple would offer would definitely be a sight to behold.
