April Fool: Huawei P20 3-camera system to be smashed by iPhone XI's 6 cameras


New photos have leaked showing the successor to the iPhone X will feature a 6-lens photographic system set to blow Huawei's P20 Pro back to Middle Kingdom come.

Update: This story now clearly marked as an April Fools Day story. It is not true, or at least, not yet. Original story continues: 

Huawei, one of the world's largest technology companies, and which unfortunately is under attack by the US and other world governments, stunned the world last week with the amazing Huawei P20 Pro, the world's first modern 40 megapixel smartphone with not one, not two but three lenses on the back.

The P20 Pro is indeed a stunning looking Android, with all the details able to be seen at the replay of the Huawei P20, P20 Pro and Porsche Design model launch in Paris, here

However, not to be outdone is Apple, with little birdies from within Apple's supply chain making unauthorised leaks of Apple's upcoming iPhone XI camera system.

Said to have been in development over the last four years by prolifically successful tech leaker, Evan Blass, thus putting plans for this year's iPhone XI well in advance of Huawei's P20 plans, the system is said to promise a combined 100 megapixel system that can be used as the ultimate camera.

It is said to eclipse DSLR photography completely, but has the utmost in versatility, able to be used not only as an electron microscope, but when hooked up to a tripod, also able to be used as an ultra-high resolution telescope.

An example rumoured to be unveiled at this year's iPhone XI launch is a recording of the vision of the iPhone XI in telescope mode pointing towards the moon.

Set to be part of a new educational movie for children, as part of Apple's new educational push, the footage will finally prove two points of major contention in the world today.

These are whether or not the moon landing rovers and footprints can still be seen on the moon, or not, and whether or not the cow can be seen jumping over the moon, or whether it is a mini-moon orbiting the moon that has hitherto been unknown.

Here's a larger view of the leaked imagery of this new 6-camera system, which can also be seen here, with the link set to expire after midday today at which point we'll all be April fools.

(Note, the Shiftcam at the Kickstarter link is actually a real product for the iPhone X, but the story above is fake for April Fools Day – until Apple makes it come true one day. Also, the links above for the P20 from Huawei are all real, as is the replay of the P20 series launch).
