- Apple stuck to 8MP selfie camera in 2018 iPhones
- Like in 2017 and 2018, Apple planning to launch three iPhones in 2019
Apple is planning to upgrade camera resolution and setup in iPhones, to be unveiled this year. While the front camera would be upgraded from 7MP to 12MP, triple-camera setup would be implemented in the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, along with a new super-wide 12MP lens, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, the famous Apple expert and predictor.
Both super-wide and front camera lenses will be coated black to make them blend better with the surrounding bezel for an “inconspicuous” look, 9To5Mac reported on Saturday. Thus, it would be almost impossible to see the new lens, improving the apparent aesthetic symmetry.
The new front camera will be included in all three new 2019 iPhones, whose names remain undisclosed. Apple is expected to officially announce new iPhones in the Fall, likely at a September media event, the report noted.
In other news, Apple is said to start manufacturing its latest iPhone models in India by June 2019 so that it can reduce the prices of the phones. Right now, the iPhone XS is retailing in India for around Rs 99,990 and the iPhone XS Max can be purchased for over Rs 1 lakh in the country. Apple recently slashed the price of iPhone XR to Rs 59,990 for a temporary period and the phone went out of stock everywhere across India.
