The iPhone 11 will come out later this 2019, if the latest leak about the Apple smartphone is to be believed. The source also said that one of the upcoming smartphone's notable features is a triple-lens camera, which is new for the iPhone series. Here’s what we know about the iPhone XI specs and features from leaks so far.

According to digit.in, known tech leaker OnLeaks shared a first look at the iPhone XI, showing that Apple will be incorporating three cameras on the back of the three smartphones they’ll release this year. Apparently, this new feature will help Apple bounce back from a disappointing year for iPhone in 2018.

The new iPhone XI’s three cameras aren’t just so you can have extras when one is broken. The three-camera setup on the back of the upcoming iPhone will help achieve a “Time of Flight” system for its cameras. This TOF system is a technology which allows it to make depth maps through measuring speed of the pulse of light traveling to and from a surface. When it comes to features that affect lighting and angles for a camera, many aspiring and experienced photographers would definitely find this to be a useful tool.

The output expected from the photos taken from the iPhone XI’s camera will have a 3D feel as the triple-lens will add some depth to photos. Again, this feature will change a lot for smartphone photographers or for those just taking simple pictures for social media.

However, the iPhone XI is still in its engineering validation testing phase, so it is still subject to change prior to its release. The changes may also include the removal of the triple-lens camera altogether. In the previous years, Apple has focused on making smartphones much sleeker and thinner without compromising the quality of the smartphone’s performance and overall power. The triple-lens camera does give the Apple XI some bulk, which may go against Apple’s usual design for many years now.

Lastly, the leaks confirmed that the Apple XI will be released in September this year. Apple has more than half a year to add more tweaks to the device, so we could probably look forward to more developments in the future.
