Apple has been in the news for a while for the upcoming iPhone 14 series. Recently, we heard that the iPhone 14 Pro models will most likely use a 48MP camera to join the “more megapixels” race. The latest news, coming from popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, has now confirmed this news and also shared some details about the iPhone 15.
48MP camera on iPhone 14, Periscope lens on iPhone 15
According to a recent 9To5Mac report, Apple will likely 48MP camera on iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. This is similar to what was suggested by Jeff Pu, who revealed that the 48MP main camera on the Pro models will be joined by 12MP ultra-wide and telephoto cameras. This one information surfaced earlier this year too.
With this, Apple will finally compete for higher megapixel cameras in the market to compete with companies like Samsung, Xiaomi and others who already offer high megapixel cameras. It is further suggested that the primary camera will: deliver an output of both 48MP and 12MP with the process of pixel binning. Pixel binning, for those who don’t know, combines small pixels into a super pixel to improve low-light photography, which can otherwise go wrong with just the 48MP output.
In the note, Kuo says that: “The continued upgrade of the iPhone camera lens over the next two years will help grow Daliguang’s market share, sales and profits.” But what might draw your attention further is the rumor pointing to a periscope lens for the 2023 iPhone series. This means that the alleged iPhone 15 could have one. The camera will help improve the phone’s optical zoom capabilities without the need for a bulky design.
This isn’t the first time Kuo has predicted a periscope lens for upcoming iPhones. The analyst suggested earlier this year that Apple could bring the periscope lens into the mix as early as 2022. That didn’t happen, though, and it looks like it could be pushed to the iPhone 15 series.
As for the other specifications, not much is known about the 2023 iPhones. Although, rumors from the past Regarding the 2022 iPhones, hint at a punch-hole screen, up to 8GB of RAM, better camera capabilities and more.
