We’ve only just started 2019 but the rumor mill for this year’s iPhone is already churning at a comfortable pace. It was just last week that @OnLeaks alarmed people with a supposed render of an iPhone 11 prototype with a hideous triple camera setup.
Back from September 2019, I bring you the very 1st and very early glimpse at which I guess #Apple will unveil as #iPhoneXI!!! Yes, time has already come to meet the new #iPhone through gorgeous 5K renders made on behalf of new coming Partner @digitindia -> https://t.co/b6SxFUS2tx pic.twitter.com/97jrlTHQ5G

I mean, ew. Maybe the render is just off and it’d look better in person, but let’s just say it’s not my cup of tea
This week, @OnLeaks is partnering with Indian publication CompareRaja to show off another prototype design that looks a lot more reasonable:
It’s not the most exciting design we’ve ever seen, but it’s certainly more palatable than the eye-sore of the previous leak – I dig the flash circling around the central camera. Aside from the vastly shrunken camera setup, the design also includes a smaller notch, giving you just a little more screen real estate for watching videos and the like.
Granted, for all we know neither of these designs will ever see the light of day – if they’re even real in the first place. It’s interesting to think Apple is experimenting with different designs, but let’s hope it brings more to the table come October.
