Apple's vision for iPhone is extra cameras

While Apple reportedly plans new cameras as the standout features of its 2019 smartphones, the company may also remove features to cut costs.

Though Apple won't debut its new 2019 iPhones for another nine months, the company is already well into the development cycle for them.

We still have a long way to go before the next-gen iPhones arrive, but it makes sense that Apple will focus on the cameras in the iPhone 11 generation.

The underwhelming reception of the iPhone XR has seen Apple consider the possibility of dropping the LCD-based model entirely, claims the report's sources, which would result in a complete shift to using OLED displays for the iPhone range, as previously rumoured. The image above shows the iPhone 11 leak we saw a few days ago, featuring that strange-looking rear camera module. The WSJ news confirms the presence of the three cameras, that according to the newspaper will be one of the key characteristics of the iPhone of 2019.

Mercedes-Benz reports best ever sales in India
The new CLA gets an optional 10.25-inch infotainment display while gesture control and a new Burmester sound system are standard. As for the multimedia system, the 2020 CLA gets the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience ( MBUX ) system.

"We think 2019 could be the past year the iPhone uses the iPhone X design architecture, in preparation for initial hardware specs for 5G (sub-6GHz) and AR (augmented reality), before greater architecture upgrades in 2020F for 5G and a more comprehensive AR system", she added.

Why it matters: Apple for years has influenced the direction of the smartphone industry.

Last month, Bloomberg reported that the company was-and still is-facing a "fire drill" to boost sales from shareholders, which prompted Apple to aggressively release its discounted iPhone XR model in October, which runs about $300 less its regular model. By 2020, however, the company reportedly plans to switch to an all OLED lineup.

Unfortunately, there's still no word on whether Apple will be lowering their iPhone prices this year-which would probably help boost sales more than camera improvements would. A spokesperson for Apple did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for comment on the report.
