A trusted Apple insider earlier this week released additional details on the upcoming iPhone 11 series of mobile phones, focusing on the camera upgrades that the iPhone maker has allegedly planned.
Some details were provided by Ming-Chi Kuo The cameras of the iPhone 11 will use a new "Black Lens Coating" technology to make some of the lenses "unobtrusive". Although his prediction may prove accurate, Kuo may have included a false detail in his report
We've heard for some time that the 2019 iPhones will feature triple and twin-lens cameras, and Kuo says the same in his report latest study to customers (about MacRumors ):
We expect the camera upgrade to be one of the key selling points of the new iPhone 2H19. Critical specification updates are as follows. (1) Reversing cameras with 6.5-inch OLED, 5.8-inch OLED and 6.1-inch LCD screens are likely to be upgraded to triple or dual cameras. A super-wide camera is being taken over by the three-camera system, which is equipped with the exclusively provided by Sony 12-megapixel CIS. (2) The front camera of all three new iPhone models is likely to be upgraded to a 12 megapixel CIS + 5P lens (compared to the current 7-megapixel CIS + 4P lens).
Well-known Leaker @OnLeaks put an iPhone ready 11 Render some time ago showed how a triple-cam module would look like. It's not the best-looking design option, but it's a victim that people will surely live with:
 Back to MacRumors & # 39; Review of the new Kuo report, we'll focus on this part:
Kuo says the rear super wide-angle lens and the front camera lens of the upcoming iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max becomes "Black-Lens -Coating technologies ", whereby the lenses look" unobtrusive ", as already indicated.
This caused @OnLeaks to offer several examples of how it looked like with its previous iPhone 11 render:
Let's take a closer look at the image above:
Yes, the special coatings are abominable, but this coating is so insignificant that they should not do it matter much. How much time does anyone spend looking at the back camera design of a phone?
That is, no matter how well informed Kuo may be, I think he may have misunderstood something. It is quite possible that the selfie cam will receive a black lens coating, but it is unlikely that any of the rear lenses will be treated this way.
Reports from Asia At the end of September, camera manufacturer Largan was developing "pure black" selfie camera coatings. The purpose of this coating is to make the selfie camera invisible to the naked eye. It's a cosmetic effect that makes all phones with notches on all screens look even better, especially when the display is off, especially on devices with notches. This feature is useful because the entire front of an all-screen phone is usually black and you can distinguish the camera relatively easily.
It has no visual advantage to cover the rear cameras with a black coating. The same camera coating just for a lens of a triple-camera setup is absolutely not useful for another simple reason: Apple does not just make black iPhones. The use of a black coating may therefore only work with black handsets. The same applies to the attempt to mask all rear cameras.
We must not forget that we talk about rumors. Both Kuo's research report and the reports from last September have not yet been determined. We have no idea if Largan will make pure black lenses this year or if Apple will actually use them in the iPhone 11 models. But it's the last design detail we should think about when discussing the latest handsets, whether they're iPhones or not.
