Apple Might Debut 3 New iPhones in 2019

Apple has been trailing local competitors such as Huawei Technologies Co Ltd that offer cheaper options in China, home to the world's biggest smartphone market in terms of shipment volume. In fact, it's believed that Apple might be looking to reduce its inventory for the iPhone, particularly as it's nearly a fact that the company overshot its expectations for iPhone sales this quarter. Reports for the company's problems with the iPhone XR continue to surface, fuelled by analysts decreasing shipment estimates for the smartphone.

So there is a lot riding on this year's range of iPhones, which is now expected to include three devices including a follow-up to the relatively affordable iPhone XR. While two of these will likely succeed iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max (and thus have OLED screens), the third will be a successor to iPhone XR and hence, come with an LCD panel.

Expect to see an extra lens for each of the 2019 iPhone models, claims a new report from the Wall Street Journal. The three-camera setup supposedly won't be available on the regular, 5.8-inch iPhone 11, which would also be a major differentiator unlike last year's iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max where the hardware was practically the same.

Only the day before yesterday, Apple cut down its production estimates for the 2018 iPhone lineup. Huawei's Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro, launched previous year, carry three rear cameras.

"We believe the 2019 iPhone and Galaxy Series features new WiFi 6 (ax), which should be a moderate tailwind for AVGO". Apple's branding has been a mess as of late, so it's all very fuzzy.

It's also not attractive because people can already buy phones that have the functionality that Apple won't have in the iPhone until at least the end of 2020.

Apple has reportedly chose to stick with the LCD display on the XR until it brings out a new line in 2020, forsaking the OLED screens it reserves for its higher-end models.

We are still at a very early stage of iPhone rumours, though.
