The high-end model will include a triple rear camera for super sharp photos whilst others will have double cameras, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

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.

The Cupertino, Calif. -based company has made a decision to stick to liquid-crystal display (LCD) at a time when sluggish sales of iPhone XR cut into its most recent revenue projection, the report said, citing people familiar with the matter. The iPhone XR, which is believed to have been the least popular of the three, will be updated with a model that comes with the same LCD display and similar design, according to the report.

Apple has a big year ahead of itself.

Apple's purported focus on cameras shows that it wants to keep the iPhone competitive with rival smartphones that heavily emphasize the importance of photography chops.

Why it matters: Apple for years has influenced the direction of the smartphone industry. This means the 2019 flagship iPhones will be differentiated in more than size, unlike the 2019 iPhone XS series, which featured the exact same camera systems on both the regular and Max model.

The follow up phone will stick with a liquid crystal display (LCD), which is cheaper than the organic LED display on its premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. And after Apple announced last week that it was forced to revise its guidance downward for the first fiscal quarter due to lower-than-expected iPhone sales in China, many sounded the alarms.

Notably, the new report is in agreement with another a render that came out earlier month giving a glimpse of what iPhone XI could hold for us in 2019.
