It was just earlier this month that a Weibo user (via Wccftech) had shared some alleged details about the upcoming successor to the iPhone XS Max which may not be accurate at all (we dont know).
The next upcoming iPhone XS Max has been pegged as the 2019 iPhone which will apparently feature a triple lens camera in 2019 by some reliable sources, and the Weibo post offers some additional details about the lenses in the camera. Apple will allegedly use a wide-angle lens, a super wide-angle lens, and a 3x telephoto lens. This would be quite similar to something like the Huawei P20 Pro, which also offers a two wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom.
This second generation iPhone XS Max is also said to have a 4,000mAh battery, which is something that seems unlikely because the form factor of the device is not changing at all. Rumors have also suggested that Apple’s 2019 iPhone will look a lot like the 2018 lineup, with of course the exception of changes to the rear camera and also possibly some tweaks to the front facing TrueDepth camera system to make the notch much smaller.
We have also heard other rumors about a much smaller notch, which is a detail that’s also included in the Weibo post.
The other alleged feature that may come to the 2019 iPhone XS Max may include 15W wireless fast charging, which would be an increase from the current 7.5W wireless charging speed, and a display with a 90 to 120Hz refresh rate as well.
Apple uses a 120Hz ProMotion display for the iPad Pro, which allows for a smoother, crisper and more responsive experience, so it’s not out of the question that they may use that in the next iPhone too.
C Technology is also known to be for sharing early iPhone information in the past too, though the Weibo user aggregates leaks, rumors, and images from multiple sources, which some are accurate and some are inaccurate. For this reason, and because of this information, it sounds a bit unlikely, and we are not confident about the veracity of these rumors.
We’ll also need to wait for secondary sources to back up this information before we can actually confirm it’s 100% accuracy.
Update: The 2019 iPhone concept details posted on Weibo seem to be fake and just a rehash of a mobile leaker’s iPhone wish list shared through Twitter on January 10th.
