2019 iPhones may have 10-megapixel front camera and no USB-C

Conceito da linha de iPhones para 2019

Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known as OnLeaks, seems to be dedicated to publishing secrets about iPhones of 2019. Only in the last few days, the leaker published two renders [1, 2] of possible designs that Apple would be considering for the devices (or at least one of them – the successor to the iPhone XS Max); today, he brought more possible information about future devices, published by the Indian website Compare.

According to Hemmerstoffer, the cameras of the new models will receive changes: on the back, one of the sensors will have 10 megapixels while the other will have 14 – Currently, the iPhones XS and XS Max have two cameras of 12 megapixels each. There is no information about the megapixel count of the third camera, which can be included only in the most expensive model in the new line.

The front camera TrueDepth, in turn, will jump from the current 7 to 10 megapixels. Engineering changes to the component are expected to allow Apple to decrease the size of the cutout in the new devices, although – obviously – that reduction is still a very distant rumor.

THE leaker also brought information about other aspects of the hardware: according to him, the iPhones of 2019 will continue with the door Lightning at its bottom, contrary to rumors (doubtful, it is true) that the devices would take the path of iPad Pro and make the transition to USB-C.

In addition, due to the differences in the positioning of the cameras, the arrangement of the internal components would change: the battery would have a less pronounced «L» shape, looking more like a large rectangle, and the logic board would be positioned above the cell.

Hemmerstoffer notes that future iPhones are still in the design stage, so all of that information may change until Apple decides on a path to follow – either way, it serves as a good guide to what we should see next. next September.
