Apple has been in the news lately. As the yet to be confirmed iPhone 11 is speculated to have a camera set-up the same as the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The rumor surfaced as supplier confirmed some of the details of the latest iPhone.

The rumor first entered the news when a Japanese website called Macotakara, reported that an unspecified Chinese supplier has confirmed that the next iPhone will have a "similar" to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The speculations surfaced earlier this week, according to Trusted Reviews.

Also, the source has allegedly told the site that the next wave of iPhones will have the same size as the Apple's their iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XS. It also indicates that the iPhone 11 will have its series. All three of the said phones are reportedly run on the new A13 chip.

So far, Apple has not yet confirmed officially that the existence of any of the new iPhone or the A13 chip was listed in the report. Meanwhile, the twin-lens are looking a bit off this year. As it was expected this year, most of the latest Android handsets will be equipped with three lenses on the back. Thus, the repetitive rumor of Apple still surfaces as the company might just step their game with the triple-lens camera.

The earliest image of the iPhone 11 with the triple-camera lens was posted by the prolific leaker OnLeaks. It shows that the three lenses and that flash were arranged in an irregular square. However, he said in a subsequent tweet that it was "a freakingly [sic] early leak and thus, things may change until the official launch." He then added that when the comments expressed dislike of the design, it will look much smaller when it comes to real life.

Furthermore, an Apple respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has backed up the theory of the triple-lens, in an investor note that has been released in Feb 2019. Meanwhile, DigiTimes reported that Largan Precision, which makes the iPhone camera lenses "remains optimistic about the adoption of 3-lens or more modules for flagship smartphone models and will continue expanding its production capacity," according to Mac World.
