An improved camera system will be a major selling point for Apple's 2019 iPhone lineup, according to a research note from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Improved cameras and picture quality could give consumers a reason to upgrade from older models as iPhone sales growth has stalled in recent years. Camera quality is frequently cited as an important factor in surveys about which features are critical to users who are deciding whether to upgrade.
Apple's iPhone lineup is expected to look a lot like its current lineup, according to Kuo's previous research. Kuo expects Apple to release a 5.8-inch iPhone (an improvement on the current iPhone XS), a 6.5-inch iPhone (like the current iPhone XS Max) and a 6.1-inch device with a lower-cost screen (which corresponds to the iPhone XR).
Here's what Kuo expects from this year's iPhone cameras:
"We forecast the camera upgrade will be one of the new 2H19 iPhone's major selling points," Kuo wrote in the Wednesday note.
Kuo's research is aimed at investors who buy shares in the companies that sell parts to Apple. He has a reputation for predicting Apple products before they launch.
