Apple is planning to give both the front-facing and rear-facing cameras on the iPhone 2019 models a significant upgrade this year according to 9to5mac.
Apple plans to upgrade the front camera in the 2019 iPhones from 7-megapixels to 12-megapixels. Also that the much rumored triple-camera system will come to the 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, adding a brand new super-wide 12-megapixel lens.
Both the super-wide and front camera lenses will be specially coated in black, to make them blend in better with the surrounding bezel for an ‘inconspicuous’ look.
The allusion to a black lens coating is interesting because it may help the new square camera protrusion look more aesthetically appealing.
The idea being that it would be almost impossible to see the new lens as the cover glass is tinted to match the bezel, improving the apparent aesthetic symmetry.
Apple is expected to officially announce its trio of new iPhones in the fall, likely at a September media event.
