A prominent tipster has posted a purported rear chassis of the 2019 iPhone which has triple-lens markings. 

Ben Geskin shared a purported photo of the 2019 iPhone rear chassis which originally surfaced on Chinese social networking site Weibo. The triple-lens markings are similar to renders of the iPhone posted by @OnLeaks and Digit.in earlier this year

News of an iPhone with triple-lens system surfaced as early as 2018. Economic Daily News reported in April 2018 that at least one 2019 iPhone model will come with three rear cameras. Analyst Jeff Pu released his research note the following month sharing the same prediction.

The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg corroborated these reports and purported renders with similar claims. Bloomberg that the third rear camera could capture a larger field of view and enable a wider range of zoom. Japanese site Macotakara claimed that the triple-lens system could come to the 5.8-inch 2019 iPhone model with higher storage capacity tiers.
