Apple iPhone 11's "stolen" part reiterates square triple camera design

Days after a leaked schematic revealed a square triple rear-camera setup on the upcoming iPhone 11, a fresh leak has reiterated the same design.

According to images of an alleged iPhone 11's part which was reportedly stolen from a Foxconn factory, the upcoming flagship phone will indeed sport a bumpy square camera module. Meanwhile, we've already seen it in several mockups.

Here's more.

The leaked part appears to be a mid-plate of the iPhone 11. The top-left corner of the plate shows five cut-outs designed to fit three camera sensors, and possibly an LED flash, and a microphone - similar to the iPhone 11 schematics.

Moreover, there is a big hole in the center which should be for iPhone 11's wireless charging coil.

Triple cameras to offer improved Portrait photography

We expect the triple camera setup to comprise a main RGB sensor, a telephoto sensor, and a Sony-made 3D Time-of-Flight sensor.

With this new Sony sensor, Apple can leverage 3D data to improve image processing and offer high-quality Portrait photography.

Further, the 3D sensor will also usher in new possibilities in the world of AR and VR gaming.
