Apple iPhone "XR 2019" case leaks may give further insight into how cameras and buttons will look on this phone

The possible exitstence of a 2nd-generation iPhone XR is relatively well-supported in the Apple rumor sphere. Most lately, a blog claims to have gotten hold of images showing what could be this phone with and without clear cases. As it has more than 1 rear camera in these pictures, it could just be a real 2019 phone.

Those interested in following the latest iPhone releases long before the fact may have encountered more than they were looking for this time around. The leaks surrounding the 2019 iterations of these mobile devices hint at an unexpected path taken by the Cupertino company in handling the multi-camera trend. They suggest that all of the new iPhones - the anticipated 2nd-generation 'budget' version included - will exhibit enlarged, raised rear protrusions of a distinctly square nature.

The latest case leak attributed to the putative 2019 'eco-iPhone' echoes these rumors. It mirrors earlier images showing a device with a rear camera hump of 4 equal sides and something of a 3rd dimension to it. Then again, it may also be the 1st set of pictures to show the same phone from all angles. As a result, we see the putative iPhone has a power button on the left side (display up), whereas discrete volume buttons and a mute slider are located on the right.

The "iPhone XR 2019" cases are simple, clear products that give the impression of being made of silicon or TPU. One model has raised, protective corners (which could also be said to function to detract from the distended camera bump). However, in the realm of reduced validity for this new leak, the device in question is shown in red, gold, black or silver only. This leaves no room for the more unique, lighter shades with which the original XR is also associated - never mind the new Lavender and Mint tones with which its successor is currently linked.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
