Huawei shocked the mobile world by slapping not one, not two, but three cameras on the back of its latest flagship, the P20 Pro. Such a move is clearly not one to be ignored by the competition, and apparently even Apple was taking notes.
According to a research note from Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff Pu, Apple is likely to launch at least one new iPhone with a triple-lens rear camera setup in the second half of next year.

There are sadly no additional details in the report, but last month a Chinese publication suggested the camera system would enable up to 5x zoom. At least one of the lenses was said to have 12 MP resolution.
Obviously, if any of this pans out, you should expect to see such a rear camera array only on the most expensive iPhone of 2019. This year there are allegedly going to be no significant changes to the setup employed by the iPhone X, which boasts two lenses on the back.
