Every year, before the launch of any smartphone, the internet is riddled with leaks, renders, speculations and rumors of the phone. This year, like every other year, the most anticipated phone happens to be the upcoming Apple iPhone. With Apple recently adopting a whole new display, it can be assumed that they'll try something new in the camera department. According to new leaks, it has been pretty much confirmed that the iPhone will have a triple rear camera setup, making for even better pictures.

Though over the past few months, this rumor has been gaining traction but now that it comes from a reliable source- 9to5Mac, it can be assumed that this is the real deal.

Apple is planning to upgrade camera resolution and setup in iPhones, which will be unveiled this year.

While the front camera would be upgraded from 7MP to 12MP, triple-camera setup would be implemented in the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, along with a new super-wide 12MP lens, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, famous Apple expert and predictor.

Both super-wide and front camera lenses will be coated black to make them blend better with the surrounding bezel for an "inconspicuous" look, 9To5Mac reported on Saturday. Thus, it would be almost impossible to see the new lens, improving the apparent aesthetic symmetry.

The new front camera will be included in all three new 2019 iPhones, whose names remain undisclosed. Apple is expected to officially announce new iPhones in the Fall, likely at a September media event, the report noted.

From the renders that we have seen over the past few months, it can be said that the phone looks rather boxy and bulky, which is not what you'd expect from Apple. Perhaps the implementation of the cameras could be changed in the final product but as of now, these specifications have been somewhat confirmed.
