A new article in the Wall Street Journal has lent further weight to speculation that Apple will jump on the triple-rear-camera bandwagon this year. According to the report, this feature will be found in the most premium model the company will release this year. It may be accompanied by two additional SKUs with dual rear cameras.

The Wall Street Journal has posted a report claiming that the outlet's sources have assured it that Apple will adopt a threefold rear camera design for its flagship phones in 2019. However, this feature will apparently be restricted to the iPhone XS Max's successor. Then again, there will be two additional models to come, as with the 2018 line-up from the Cupertino giant.

WSJ's sources have indicated that one of these SKUs will be a second-generation iPhone XR, right down to its LCD display. However, Apple is sticking with OLED for the two more premium options. This may leave the extra main camera sensor as the prime selling-point for the most expensive upcoming iPhone. It will be interesting to see how Apple handles the fact that it is late to this party as well while unveiling this device.

On the other hand, the article's sources have also apparently suggested that plans to deliver this feature in 2019 are not yet entirely set in stone by Apple. Furthermore, the company has reportedly only just begun to plan for its 2020 models. They include a possible end to the XR line, leaving just two variants more like the XS series. Finally, whatever they may turn out to look like, this year's crop of Apple phones is set for an autumn release as usual.
