Apple iPhone XI might have the ugliest triple camera solution so far

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.

The company might end up changing how the device looks design wise. Above the third camera is an LED flash, and below it is a microphone.

Apple leaks are rare, but new renders have appeared purporting to show the 2019 iPhone - or iPhone XI - as it's being called.

That notwithstanding, it's worth noting that the design above - if at all accurate - will likely be an exclusive on Apple's top of the line iPhone, with Digit noting: "Not knowing the scale at which the image was rendered, it is hard to say which variant will sport the three cameras". Two of them are vertically aligned while the third one is placed on the right under the LED flash.

But in 2013, the Premier League instituted goal-line technology - the same mechanism as tennis' Hawk-Eye system. What kind of reaction do we want to see? "For tonight, the boys tried everything, and we got nothing for it".

Apple is expected to launch three phones this September, successors to the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max.

We heard first of a TOF lens in Oppo R17 Pro a year ago, but the technology seemed ahead of its time. In fact, a recent report by Bloomberg suggested that Apple is looking to adopt long-distance 3D TOF technology in its upcoming iPhones.

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. The 3D camera would be able to create 3D depth maps by measuring the time it takes light to bounce off things in a scene. But there's so much more OEMs can explore with the unique sensor in the areas of AR and VR. The image shows only the rear of the device but it is a big reveal nonetheless. There's no doubt the iPhone XI will support wireless charging and have aluminium core - even if it is for the premium models.
