An iPhone with triple-lens camera could really be coming next year
Pu predicts an emerging adoption of triple-lens cameras by some handset vendors, which was sparked off by Huawei's introduction of the P20 Pro handset
. Adoption of triple-lens cameras is expected to accelerate later this year when Huawei launches a lower-spec model of the Mate 20 handset.
Apple's triple-lens camera reportedly includes a 12-megapixel lens that is capable of 5x optical zoom. Similar to how Apple reserves the dual-camera module for the Plus and X models, it is likely that the highest-end model will only launch with the triple-lens camera in 2019.
