The likelihood of Apple’s largest iPhone in 2019 shipping with a triple-lens camera increased today with reports from the supply chain that one of Apple’s manufacturing partners is expecting more triple-lens business during 2019.
The details come from Largan Precision, a supplier in the production chain of a number of smartphones.
Although it has reported a drop in Q4 revenue, the smartphone camera lens manufacturer is expecting to see an increased demand for its product, which includes 3-lens camera units. It has already declared orders from Oppo, Vivo, Huawei and Samsung, and is expecting to gather more business during 2019.
The expectation is that Largan will build on its relationship with Apple and will be providing new hardware for the upcoming iPhones, such as the iPhone 11 Max which is widely rumored to be shipping with a three-lens rear camera. Digitmes reports, via MacRumors: More
