Apple Macotakara's Japanese blog makes some unorthodox claims this morning regarding the iPhone line in 2019. Previous rumors have indicated that the 2019 line will be the direct heir to 2018 iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.
Today's report, referring to reliable Chinese supply sources, suggests that, in addition to the XR and XS specifications, there are two new 2019 iPhone models with 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch OLED displays. . These models will be specially designed to accommodate the system of triple cameras that are distributed.

This is a strange report and worth reading with a healthy dose of skepticism, but Macotakara has a fairly accurate track record when it comes to Apple's rumors. The site was one of the first, if not the first, to report that the iPhone 7, for example, would drop 3.5mm headphones.
The justification for extending the iPhone line is related to the three targets. component. Objects will probably be the biggest ever for the iPhone and have a larger sensor size that should provide the quality of the photo. However, this means that the camera module is a physically larger component than any other one that came before.
For these new iPhones 2019, at least according to the report, Apple makes a thinner chassis to (partially) offset the increase in the size of a camera with three lenses. The main body of the 6.1-inch OLED model will be 0.15mm thicker than the current iPhone XS chassis, but the camera will perform less, about 0.5mm.
On the whole, the 6.1-inch model will be between the 5.8-inch iPhone XS and the 6.1-inch iPhone XR in terms of size in the hand-apparently it is more thin than the iPhone XR, since it uses OLED technology, not LCD technology.
As for the 6.5-inch OLED model, the overall body is like 0.4mm thicker, but the chamber width is reduced by 0.25mm. Combined, this means that the 6.5-inch model will be 0.2 mm thicker than the iPhone XS Max. C to Lightning cable in the box.
The report definitely makes a wrench in comparison to a consensus about the rumors about the evolution of the current 6.1-inch LCD and 5.8-inch / 6.5-inch OLED configurations
. ] Interestingly, over the course of the weekend, Onlayax wrote a tweet that received new information about the 2019 iPhone line. It does not explicitly agree with the claims of Macotakara, but it shows that there is a place for greater turbulence than we expected.
I recently heard that a triple rear view camera will not be exclusive to any 2019 iPhone. According to an unconfirmed source #iPhoneXI #iPhoneXIMax and #iPhoneXIR all three come with three cameras. Among other things, the matt glass may be #iPhoneXI and #iPhoneXIMax exclusively

Onleaks said, the "unconfirmed source" pointed out that the triple camera would not be exclusive to any size, but changes in design like matte glass would be limited to iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max. This may be the two OLED models that Macotakara claims to exist.
