Frankly, I think the setup looks ugly and doesn't seem to borrow from the company's elegant industrial design thinking. Firstly the arrangement of camera sensors, LED flash and what appears to be a microphone is nothing like what we've seen in the Mate 20 Pro.

Apparently this year Apple will be adopting the triple-camera setup on the iPhones.

It was also revealed that Apple will launch three iPhones this year just like it did last year.

It also claims that Apple plans to launch three iPhones in September 2019: a low-end variant, possibly the successor of the iPhone XR and two high-end variants, succeeding the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

OnLeaks has shared a render that gives us our very first look at Apple's next smartphone - the iPhone XI 2019.

The Juice Pack Access packs in a 2000mAh battery capacity for the iPhone X, XR, and XS, while the XS Max has 2200mAh capacity.

McConnell responded that Schumer's idea was a "total nonstarter" and a waste of time. He said Border Patrol agents have "skin in the game" with the government shutdown.

OnLeaks notes the 2019 iPhones are still in Engineering Validation Test (EVT) stage, and the design may change before it's inevitable launch in September 2019.

We heard first of a TOF lens in Oppo R17 Pro past year, but the technology seemed ahead of its time. One, Hemmerstoffer has provided accurate information regarding next-gen iPhone designs in the past. The 3D camera would be able to create 3D depth maps by measuring the time it takes light to bounce off things in a scene.

It's also unclear what the third camera's goal will be, but Bloomberg has previously reported that Apple was interested in acquiring 3D camera sensors from Sony. But there's so much more OEMs can explore with the unique sensor in the areas of AR and VR.

More details about the iPhone XI are not known yet.
