Leaked image adds fuel to the iPad Pro (2019) triple camera gossip fire – PhoneArena
Apple was a little late to the multi-lens smartphone party, equipping the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual rear-facing camera system several years after HTC experimented with a rudimentary arrangement of that sort and several months after the likes of Huawei and LG helped bring the technology into the mainstream.
The first “physical leak” is here
Before you start screaming fake, you might want to keep in mind the picture obtained by Sonny Dickson from a purported source that has “repeatedly been reliable about previous iPad hardware” is merely a mockup of an unspecified iPad Pro (2019) model, which explains the lack of attention to detail.
Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro comes with a single rear camera
That being said, this is supposed to be a “final design” mockup, so there’s a pretty good chance the backplate of the commercial product will look exactly as it’s depicted here. Namely, clean as a whistle, save for a centered Apple logo, a smaller “iPad” engraving and a three-dot Smart Connector down below, and of course, the top left-positioned triple-lens system we’re most interested in right now.
Different arrangement, similar features
Apple is interestingly trying something a little bit different for its second three-camera array, but unfortunately for people hating on the square-shaped module of the iPhone 11 Pro, that’s not changing. Instead, Apple will simply display the three shooters and LED flash differently on the iPad Pro (2019), approaching the design in a more symmetrical way.
At the end of the day, we’re sure you want to know first and foremost what benefits, features, and specs to expect. “Creative video professionals” should look forward to an extremely versatile content recording experience powered by an ultra wide camera with f/2.4 aperture and a 120-degree field of view, a wide shooter with f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization, and a telephoto lens combining OIS with f/2.0 aperture and 2x optical zoom.
The square-shaped camera arrangement of the iPhone 11 Pro is not the same as the 2019 iPad Pro module
All three iPhone 11 Pro snappers are equipped with 12-megapixel sensors, and at least for the time being, we expect the same from the upgraded iPad Pros widely rumored to go official sometime next month. In lack of speculation to the contrary, refreshed 11 and 12.9-inch variants are to be expected, with similar (if not identical) camera and processing power improvements as the new iPhone flagships.
