The prestigious newspaper Wall Street Journal has informed today that this year we will see three new iPhone models, including two with OLED screen and one with LCD screen. The high-end iPhone XI Max Will have a triple rear camera system. The successor of the iPhone XR with LCD screen will have two rear cameras.
A few days ago we saw some renders of Apple’s triple rear camera system based on prototypes of the iPhone XI. The WSJ news confirms the presence of the three cameras, that according to the newspaper will be one of the key characteristics of the iPhone of 2019.
Finally, the name of the new iPhone is still a mystery, because after the iPhone Xs, Apple could choose to continue with the Roman numeration (iPhone XI), return to the numbers (iPhone 11) or completely change its name.
It is worth to mention that a week after the shock created by the announcement of a downward adjustment of its revenue forecast for the last quarter of 2018, we learn that Apple has decided to reduce by 10% the production of the new iPhones.
Apple is suffering from a maturing smartphone market and the impact of the U.S.-China trade war, even though most of its products are not yet subject to additional U.S. tariffs imposed on Chinese-made goods. “We did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in greater China,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a letter to investors when announcing the cut in revenue forecast. “We believe the economic environment in China has been further impacted by rising trade tensions with the United States”.
