The tech company Apple recently finished with their iPhone event announcements, and now there are new leaks about the possible plans of the company for its iPhone flagships next year. Many avid fans are also looking forward to what is in store for the upcoming 2019 iPhones.

According to MacRumors, the well-known tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo just shared a research note with the Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News. He claimed that the upcoming iPhones for next year will be equipped with the IP68-rated water resistance like the recently released iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. This means that the devices will be resistant to water for up to a depth of two meters for up to 30 minutes.

Just so you’ll know, the IP codes indicate the degree of protection a handset has against dust and liquid. The number 6 means that the handset is dustproof like iPhone XS and XS Max. Meanwhile, the number 8 designates the highest level of liquid resistance. So, the highest rating iPhones can achieve is IP68.

Kuo also suggested that the 2019 iPhone lineup will likely be a trio also similar to this year. There will be two OLED models with 5.8 and 6.5-inch screens and one model with a 6.1-inch LCD screen. If this is true, then the same line-up will come with improved specs and software but no major changes.

To recall, this year’s iPhones are in the “S” stage. This shows that these devices were just a minor specification-bump over the current iPhone X, which was released last year. Also, the upcoming 2019 iPhones are expected to be a redesign and might be shipped with the powerful A13 processor.  Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has been reportedly supplying this processor to the company exclusively for the fourth year in a row.
