In a bid to seize everyone’s nearly lost interest, Apple is reportedly considering to overhaul the design of the iPhone, which the company touts as the “world’s most powerful personal device.”
Renowned tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer (aka @onleaks) recently spilled the beans on the biggest change that may be coming to the new iPhone. It can be recalled that Hemmerstoffer has an undaunted and unblemished track record when it comes to revealing details that companies would normally fancy keeping under the wraps.
Keeping in line with that, the 2019 iPhone could have a never-before-seen back that will reportedly house a triple camera module. This purported iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successor is expected to come bearing the ‘iPhone XI’ moniker. Aside from that, the triple rear-mounted cameras will boast a one-of-a-kind setup.
Melding with a previous leak from Bloomberg, digit.in suggests that the Cupertino-based tech giant could incorporate ToF (Time of Flight) technology. This ToF module is created by Sony, and the company has already showcased the technology that could reportedly allow newfangled iPhones to generate accurate 3D maps of everything that falls within a 5-meter range.
The influence of this on AR (augmented reality) application, gaming, and security could be dramatic. According to Hemmerstoffer, the iPhone XI is currently under the EVT (Engineering Validation Test) stage. In other words, the phone is still in the works.
Nevertheless, Hemmerstoffer’s report was backed by equally renowned tipster Ice Universe, who confirmed that the 2019 renderings are correct via a tweet.
