Apple is reportedly planning to release three new iPhone models later this year, according to the Wall street journal. In between these three models, one comes with an LCD screen which will be a successor to the iPhone XR. The company also intends to introduce new camera features, as per some reports, the high-end 2019 iPhone model will feature a triple camera system at the backside of the phone.
It is specifically designed to compete with the latest Android handsets that include multiple cameras. Moreover, a few renders of the triple camera system of iPhone leaked last week, with OnLeaks which claims Apple will introduce such a system later this year. It is not clear yet when the new camera system will be incorporated into iPhone models, however, these speculations have emerged after the report about Sony is boosting its 3D camera output for chips that will power rear-facing 3D cameras on smartphones in 2019.
According to the reports, Apple has also decided to stick with a liquid-crystal display (LCD), when the sales of iPhone XR dropped in its recent revenue projection. Last week, Apple issued the reports of its first Quarter sales of iPhones which points reduction in the sales, poor Chinese consumer demand, sending its shares down 10 percent, the biggest decrease in sales of iPhone in six years.
Apple itself acknowledged that the low sales in the Chinese market would unexpectedly lead towards worst first quarter revenues. The price cut of the iPhone came into the country when large Chineseretailers including Alibaba-backed Suning and JD.com changed the price of the 128GB version ofthe iPhone XRfrom 6,999 yuan ($1,036) to 5,799 yuan ($858) — a 1,200 yuan ($178) discount.
On the other hand, Apple is also considering to go for organic light-emitting diode OLED-only for its 2020 iPhone models, according to the WSJ. With this move, the price for iPhone next models will automatically increase in the worldwide markets. Apple recently warned they could loss $9 billion in iPhone sales in the recent quarter due to weaker demand.
