Apple is expected to launch its 2019 smartphones this fall.
The high-end model will include a triple rear camera for super sharp photos whilst others will have double cameras, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
While sales of the iPhone XR have reportedly been sluggish and WSJ says Apple isn't too keen on the prospect of releasing another entry-level iPhone, it may be too late for the company to switch up its plans.
Sony last month said it was ramping up production of next-gen 3D sensors for mobile cameras after having received interest from manufacturing partners. That's sure to be the iPhone 11 Max, or whatever Apple's biggest 2019 phone launches as.

This sounds familiar, but the newest features may come in the phones' cameras.
Unfortunately, there's still no word on whether Apple will be lowering their iPhone prices this year-which would probably help boost sales more than camera improvements would.
Apple is reportedly planning to release three new iPhones in the autumn as it faces weakened demand in key markets for its top-selling handset. The iPhone XR, which is believed to have been the least popular of the three, will be updated with a model that comes with the same LCD display and similar design, according to the report. The current XR sports a single lens camera, and is backed by AI similarly to Google's Pixel cameras to produce shots which resemble that of the dual lens XS and XS Max.
The report doesn't specify if both the regular and larger iPhone 11 (that's a non-final name) will have triple cameras or if that setup will be reserved for the iPhone 11 Max.
Apple unveiled its 2018 iPhones in September.
