If you want a smartphone with a triple-camera setup, Huawei's P20 Pro is currently your only option. And vy the looks of it, this won't change any time soon... at least not if you prefer to stick to Apple's iPhone over Android devices. According to a report in the Taipei Times—which is citing a research note from Yuanta Securities analyst Jeff Pu—Apple is likely to launch a triple-camera iPhone model, but this won't happen before the second half of 2019.

Like on the Huawei, the third lens would likely provide a 3x optical zoom, improving zoom quality over the current top-models' 2x lenses. It's also fair to assume the triple-camera will be reserved for a flagship device, likely a third generation iPhone X that could launch around September of next year if Apple sticks to its usual launch schedule.

This scenario is supported by another previous report by former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who ruled out any significant changes to Apple's current dual-camera system on the iPhone X and 8 Plus for the 2018 models.
