Accompanying high record temperatures (and every summer more, it seems) there are always doses of rumors because in the last third of the year we expect important releases from manufacturers as notorious as Google, Huawei or Apple. From this third we have been seeing alleged leaks on cameras of peculiar design, and apparently the operation of the cameras of the next iPhone has been leaked.
Last year we saw that the double camera remains in what is now Apple's first line of smartphones, with the iPhone XS and XS Max on the one hand and the iPhone XR on the other, with a single rear camera. And what we now see are models with triple rear camera represented by hundreds of mockups and renders that seem to match what Cupertino's are preparing for this year.
The wide angle arrives
As we say in the introduction, we have been seeing rumors and theories based on possible information that point to a triangular scheme of rear cameras on the next iPhone. And the last push to this was given by the people of 9to5Mac, who speak of sources that have already seen the terminals.
Thus, according to the publication Apple prepares a new iPhone with three rear cameras inside an effectively square module, very similar to those mockups that we have seen months ago. Three cameras that will make up the most repeated scheme in the current mobile landscape: a standard lens, a telephoto and a wide angle.
Beyond the components, they also talk about software. Specifically of a function called Smart frame, which is based on capturing the area around what was initially framed, thus gathering more information to be able to reframe images later.

As these sources have been explained, users will be able to manually or automatically adjust the perspective and trim thanks to this extra information captured, but this will be available only for a certain period of time for privacy reasons (and apparently not so much space).
In addition, the one to receive improvements with respect to the above is apparently the front camera. No data have been leaked on sensors or lenses, but Apple has been said to add the possibility of record in slow motion at 120 frames per second, along with other improvements.
Three new iPhone, but not three rear cameras for everyone
Thus, in the next batch of Apple smartphones we hope to see three phones, but not everyone will benefit from this extension to three rear cameras so there will be one with less again in the future Apple triplet:
- iPhone 11R: With the number arbigo and not Roman as we mentioned a few months ago, this model with name "N104 (iPhone12,1)" will be the one who takes over from the iPhone XR and is the one who will continue with one less camera (now there will be two) and an LCD panel (828 x 1,792 pixels).
- iPhone 11: the direct heir of the iPhone XS, with the internal nomenclature of "D42 (iPhone12,3), with triple rear camera and OLED screen of 1,125 x 2,436 pixels.
- iPhone 11 Max: the one that will pick up the witness of the iPhone XS Max, also with three rear cameras but with a larger screen and of greater resolution (an OLED of 1,242 x 2,688 pixels), with the internal name of "D43 (iPhone12,5).
Thus, the resolutions we saw in the 2018 models will be maintained, but the change will come among others with Haptic Touch. One of the novelties of iOS 13 that will replace 3D Touch, thanks to an improvement in the Taptic Engine (the vibration system).
Some of this latest information includes some more security for Conservation of the Lightning port and not a change to USB type C. And as for the possible incursion of a sensor Time of Fligt (TOF) It seems that we will have to wait to see it on an iPhone next year.
