The trendsetter may become the copycat: rumors coming out of Taiwan speculate that Apple may be releasing an iPhone with three lenses in 2019, a design that may be inspired by Huawei's P20 Pro.

Apple is a trendsetter. Whether it’s removing the headphone jack or adding a display notch, the Cupertino Colossus is a commander of change, controversial or not. But current rumors claim that Apple may be nothing more than a copycat with next year’s iPhone, at least in one regard.

The Huawei P20 Pro has shaken up the smartphone industry with its tri-camera design, and Apple may want a slice of that pie, according to a report from the Economic Daily News out of Taiwan. The report states that next year’s iPhone may sport three 12 MP 6P shooters on the back with OIS and a “5 times zoom effect.” The article goes on the speculate that the iPhone will have a 6.1-inch LCD, will use Apple’s Face ID (which is currently available in the iPhone X), and will cost somewhere between USD $700-800.

This should all be taken with a heavy grain of salt. Considering that we’re likely at least 18 months away from 2019’s iPhone release, an eternity in the smartphone world, there’s no telling what Apple will release. Smartphones have made some huge steps forward over the past few years, particularly with cameras. However, Foxconn (the leading manufacturing partner for Apple) is located in Taiwan, so the media in that country may have a steady finger on Cupertino’s pulse. It’s not outside the realm of possibility to see an iPhone with three (or more) camera modules.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
