Deutsche Securities analyst Jialin Lu claims one iPhone model will come with three camera lenses.
If recent reports are to be believed, expect to see a triple-lens camera setup on next year’s iPhones. Apple is reportedly building a new iPhone model with three lenses to support 3D depth sensing and enhanced zoom.
The information comes from Taiwanese site Economic Daily News citing a research note from Deutsche Securities analyst Jialin Lu. According to Lu, AR imagery is a high probability of being the main specification of the iPhone in 2019.
A triple-lens camera setup will enable two of the sensors to capture images of an object from different angles. Also, a triangulation method is employed to get the distance between the iPhone and the object. This will improve the phone’s 3D sensing via stereo vision for augmented reality (AR).
Additionally, the third lens would have a longer focal length for enhanced zoom function. This could have an output of 3x optical zoom. To compare, the latest iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X has 2x optical zoom functions.
If this information is accurate, Apple would only be second to Huawei in having a triple-lens setup. The latter introduced its triple-lens rear camera with the Huawei P20 Pro.

Huawei unveiled their $195 wireless earphones and they are very similar to Apple’s AirPods.
If you think you’re seeing double at first glance, don’t worry, we did too. That’s because Huawei’s wireless earphones are very similar to the AirPods.
When Huawei launched their latest flagship phone, the P20, they also launched what seems to the be the most expensive AirPods rip-off just yet. They are called the FreeBuds. And they come in black.
The one noticeable difference is their in-ear design with the silicone tips. According to the company, this is actually for better noise cancellation. The guys from the Verge were able to try on the FreeBuds and noted that they’re comfortable and fit well. They did not allow any listening so the quality still remains to be seen.
The FreeBuds cost $195 which is slightly cheaper than the AirPods. They also come with a carrying case that provides extra charges for the earphones. Apparently they last for 10 hours of playback on a single charge. This is double than the 5 hours than Apple’s wireless earphones offer.
Other differences include a slightly longer and flatter stem. They are also have a horizontal orientation when put away in the case (compared to Apple’s vertical ones) and you have the option to get the black coloured ones.
What do you think? Would you choose these over the AirPods?
