iPhone XI Said to Feature 10MP Selfie Camera, Will Stick With Lightning

The rumor mill is starting to pick up steam when it comes to the incoming 2019 iPhone lineup, and today we have new information to share.

CompareRaja and @OnLeaks has a new report out that aims to shed some (very) early information on what’s coming down the pipe. According to the report, Apple is going to adopt a 10-megapixel camera front-facing camera, and the hardware will include general updates to the TrueDepth camera system that facilitates Face ID. Meanwhile, around back, two of the three cameras will be ten and 14 megapixels.

The new report also sheds light on the slight internal changes the company will make in the upcoming devices:

“In addition, we’ve also learned that due to the change in position of the rear camera, Apple has also done significant changes in the internal design of upcoming iPhone i.e. it will now feature a less “L” shaped battery (almost a big square now) and logic board will be located above the battery instead of vertically located next to it as in the earlier iPhones.”

Interestingly enough, it turns out that, at least based on this report, it sounds like Apple will be sticking with the Lightning port in the upcoming device lineup, and won’t be transitioning to USB-C after all. That is a counterpoint to what we’ve heard in the past, and it’s definitely one feature that many people want Apple to adopt in their smartphone family.

So, that’s more to digest. Will any of this pan out? Who knows! But we’re already well into the rumor season, so we’re only going to keep hearing this back-and-forth for quite some time.

What are you hoping to see in the 2019 iPhone lineup?
