Apple this year is expected to release three new iPhone models powered by the company’s own A13 SoC, known internally by the codename ‘Cebu’. While a number of leaks over the past few weeks have revealed several details about the upcoming devices, a new report now reveals some more interesting tidbits about them. According to sources quoted by 9to5Mac, all three will feature Lightning ports rather than USB-C that we saw in the 2018 iPad Pro.
The report further states that the upcoming devices have identifiers D42, D43 and N104, and are expected to replace the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR, respectively. While the D42 and D43 will have a 3x OLED Retina displays, the N104 will still feature the 2x Liquid Retina display like its predecessor. All of them will also apparently have the same display resolutions as the current-gen models.
Another interesting new addition on the next-gen iPhone models is said to be a new Taptic Engine that the company is reportedly calling ‘Leap Haptics’. While exact details about it remain a mystery, the report categorically states that “the new devices won’t feature 3D Touch as we know it today”.
Lastly, the report also seemingly confirms some of the recent rumors about the cameras on the new iPhones. According to the sources, the triple rear cameras will, indeed, be housed within a square housing, with the extra space occupied by a wide-angle camera that will add a feature called ‘Smart Frame’ to allow users to frame their subjects better. The front-facing selfie-cam will also be upgraded with support for slo-mo recording at 120fps, the report said.
