Previously, there have been rumors on the network that the new iPhone may receive a triple camera. Now the Economic Daily News has shared the relevant information.
Chinese-language publication claims that the triple main camera on the new generation iPhone will provide more tracking capabilities than the frontal TrueDepth system used on the iPhone X. The fact is that the new triple camera design will provide stereoscopic shooting. The same object will be shot from different angles, using two of the three sensors. After that, triangulation method will be used to calculate the distance between the smartphone and the subject. As for the third camera, it should provide a threefold optical zoom, which is a record for the iPhone.
Thus, the innovation will not only help to improve the capabilities of the new iPhone in the field of photography, but also provide an opportunity to use the rear camera in all kinds of augmented reality applications. In any case, the aforementioned smartphone should see the light of day only in 2019. Until then, the company can both further expand its capabilities and abandon the idea of using a triple camera.
