It's seeming increasingly likelier with every emerging rumor that Apple will add a third camera to the iPhone XS' pair of rear-facing lenses when Cupertino reveals its next-generation flagship later this year.
The news is courtesy of reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), and while it mostly rehashes his report from early April, it does mention a few new details. To recall, the current gen iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have dual camera setups at the back, and the front sensors are at 7-megapixel.
This setup will consist of a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel super-wide-angle lens, all supplied by Sony.

Northern Ireland riots: Woman, 29, shot dead as petrol bombs hurled
During the disturbances, more than 50 petrol bombs were thrown at officers - and two cars were hijacked and set on fire. Our thoughts are very much with the family and friends of Ms McKee, who was a journalist based in Belfast.
Additionally, Kuo says that Apple will be offering a triple-camera setup across its 2019 iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max variants. The higher resolution sensor should also allow Apple to offer 4K video recording from the front camera, though this is something that will also depend on how powerful the A13 chipset's ISP is.
Finally, Kuo says the super-wide lens, as well as the front lens, will have a special black coating to make them "inconspicuous".
"We forecast the camera upgrade will be one of the new 2H19 iPhone's major selling points", Kuo writes in a note to investors. It's possible that the design will change before the final product enters mass production; if not, those hoping for a return to flush-mounted rear cameras are in for a rude awakening.
