New rumors are bringing greater detail to our expectations for the next iPhone's camera technology. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a good track record with these types of predictions, has released a new report suggesting that all three 2019 iPhones will have 12-megapixel front-facing cameras. Information from the report was earlier published by MacRumors.

Upgrade - Generation - Cameras - Apple - Competitors

If true, this would represent a considerable upgrade from the current generation's 7-megapixel front-facing cameras. But it would still leave Apple lagging far behind competitors like Samsung and Huawei, whose new P30 Pro features a 20-megapixel super wide-angle lens and a regular 40-megapixel lens in addition to a 8-megapixel lens with a 10x zoom.

The Huawei P30 Pro's photo skills rule the phone world.

Kuo - Report - Apple - Phones - Successors

Kuo's report also claims that two of Apple's forthcoming phones -- the successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, ostensibly -- will feature a trio of 12MP cameras on the front including one telephoto lens, one wide-angle lens and, courtesy of an exclusive arrangement Apple has with Sony, one super-wide-angle lens.
