When I made my Galaxy Fold prediction more than a year early, I endured an endless wave of whiny emails from Samsung fans… right up until they realized I was right. But perhaps the response to today’s prediction will be less abrasive since it’s so obvious. Are you among the many, many people out there whining about the rear camera setup on the new iPhone 11 design we’ve seen leak time and time again? Well, you need to stop your incessant whingeing right now, and I’m going to explain why.
The iPhone 11 camera bump in question can be seen in the render at the top of this post, but here’s a closer look:

Designwise, it’s actually quite sleek. In fact, it’s a cut above anything else on the market right now. The camera bump is integrated into the back of the iPhone 11, so it’s a single piece of glass instead of a metal frame sticking through a glass back like other smartphones. The area in between the cameras will be color-matched to the back of the phone, which is also something you won’t find on other handsets. But it’s big and square, and people who haven’t seen a design like this before could certainly be put off.
In the time since Apple’s new iPhone 11 design first leaked, I’ve seen so many people whining about this new square camera array. The latest whingeing came in this New York Post article, which is titled “New iPhone design shows lumpy, squarish camera bumps.” Ugh. “Brace yourself,” the article opens. “The new iPhone’s camera bump will soon be bigger and uglier than ever.”
