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 company's 2019 lineup will consist of a new LCD display iPhone with a dual-lens rear camera, a new OLED display iPhone with dual rear cameras and an OLED iPhone with a triple-lens rear camera array, says WSJ.
Looking ahead to 2020, Apple apparently might ditch LCD altogether.
As with any rumor, particularly ones this far out, we'd take all of this with a pinch of salt, but it would make sense for Apple to up the number of lenses on its phones, since many rival handsets now have more than two.
So there is a lot riding on this year's range of iPhones, which is now expected to include three devices including a follow-up to the relatively affordable iPhone XR.
According to the publication, Apple has been developing a new LCD iPhone for several months and a switch would likely prove too costly. It'll reportedly sell the 64GB iPhone 8 for 3,899 yuan ($578/£450/AU$800), compared to the 5,099 yuan ($756/£590AU$1,045) Apple price.
Regardless, it's a risky move from Apple, as some of its biggest competitors are gearing up to launch 5G devices next year, including Huawei, OnePlus and Samsung, the latter of which is expected to launch a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 in February.
4/2/18: Despite earlier rumours to the contrary, a new report claims that Apple's 2019 iPhones won't offer support for 5G networks.
By then, the OLED supply-chain would have likely matured enough that Apple's requirements will be fulfilled. A spokesperson for Apple did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for comment on the report.
