BGR: Sorry, Huawei. The iPhone 11 will extend Apple’s lead as the smartphone camera king

Specifically, the both successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will incorporate a triple-camera scheme on the back of the device. Meanwhile, the entry-level iPhone 11 will reportedly boast a dual-lens camera.

Recently, the smartphone world has been dazzled by Android devices that take extraordinarily stellar photos in seemingly impossible low-light conditions.

Huawei’s P30 Pro, in particular, manages to capture incredibly detailedphotos in poor lighting conditions. Google’s Night Sight mode on its Pixel phones, meanwhile, delivers pretty astonishing results in low-light environments as well.

As a result, I admit that I was perhaps a bit hasty in assuming that Apple, with the iPhone 11 release looming overhead, must play catch-up in order to compete with devices like the P30 and Google Pixel. The reality, though, is that the hoopla surrounding devices like the P30 Pro can often be so exciting as to make us forget there are, in fact, many ways one can measure camera performance across a specific smartphone.

Put simply, a device like the P30 Pro, for all of its low-light magic, may actually have to catch up to the iPhone as opposed to the other way around. More
