A new report by Economic Daily News (Chinese media) goes on to predict that Apple is planning on releasing an iPhone device that packs three lenses. The same report further claims that the invention will also be home to an improved zoom. The smartphone is expected to launch as early as last week. If this turns out to be true, then the hardware shift will be seen after two years. Apple ended up introducing its iSight Duo dual lens system on the iPhone 7 Plus.
The smartphone manufacturer included similar kind of features on the next-generation iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X smartphone as well. The same report was spotted by MacRumors recently. The story further went on to state that the competition in the smartphone market will increase as companies are found to focused on cameras this time around. The Cupertino technology giant will be launching an iPhone device with three lenses for the first time during the second half of 2019. According to a report by Economic Daily News, Huawei has already gone on to launch such a smartphone that is the same as the P20 Pro device.
Meanwhile, ever since Apple came into existence, the technology giant has made an impression of only introducing one smartphone per year. The device is home to some of the best features prevailing at the moment. There were times when Apple would be the first company among the rest of the smartphone manufacturers to come up with features for the first time. However, those were the glory days under the reign of Steve Jobs. It goes without saying that for the entirety of Steve Jobs’ stewardship of the iPhone program, the Cupertino technology giant never went on to release more than one iPhone device per year.
The same single device would strike the perfect chord with the audience. Furthermore, it would strike the right balance of features and prices. However, Steve Jobs passed away and with him, went his theory. Now, if a new report is believed to be true, then the company will be seen introducing not two but three smartphones this year. What better way to further clutter up the iconic Apple lineup? It appears that the company has decided to put Steve Jobs firmly in the company’s rearview mirror. Apple’s iPhone lineup is going on to grow at a speed that is unstoppable.
As can be recalled, the first family to go on to expand beyond just one device was the iPhone 6 family. Back in 2014, Apple went on to introduce two handsets, i.e., iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It took them three years to further expand the lineup. In 2017, the Cupertino technology giant made it a point to launch three new smartphones. The list included the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X. All the three devices were starting at the same time. The information was provided by RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani.
Daryanani went on to pen a note wherein he suggested that Apple will be releasing three new iPhone devices this year. The upcoming smartphones will be introducing at the same time. The company is planning on following up last year’s iPhone X with a more prominent iPhone X Plus or iPhone X 2 smartphone. There will be another addition, which will be a cheaper plus-sized iPhone that sports 6.1-inch of the LCD screen. Of those three, Daryanani expects the LCD iPhone to sell the best, accounting for around half of all iPhone production. We don’t know what will happen next. The company usually launches smartphones in September each year.
