Now that the iPhone 14 Pro Max is on the market, the whistleblowers have gone to the iPhone 15 Pro Max, a device that will probably be introduced as the iPhone 15 Ultra. A well-known leak says that the iPhone 15 Ultra will have a series of exclusive features to make it more different from the iPhone 15 Pro.
One of the important differences between the iPhone 15 Ultra and the iPhone 15 Pro is that the Ultra model will have a periscope camera. Telephoto lenses based on a periscopic mechanism provide high magnification. These lenses have made their way into high-end Android phones in recent years, but so far no iPhone has been released with a periscope lens.
According to Zomit, the use of the periscope camera on the iPhone 15 Ultra probably means that for the first time, the number of rear panel cameras will reach four. Of course, this has not been confirmed. Maybe Apple will eventually replace the current telephoto camera with a periscope model and the iPhone 15 Ultra will still have three cameras on the back panel.
An unofficial video attributed to the iPhone 15 Ultra shows the phone with four cameras. The LED flash appears to be centered around the lidar sensor in the center of the camera island. The main camera has a 48-megapixel sensor, the ultra-wide camera uses a 16-megapixel sensor, and the normal telephoto camera is also equipped with a 16-megapixel sensor.
The fourth camera, which has a periscope lens, will also be equipped with a sensor with the same resolution. This camera will provide 10x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. Apple has been relying on a 12-megapixel camera in the iPhone for years, however, the new Pro generation iPhones have used a 48-megapixel sensor behind the wide-angle lens.
In the concept video, we see the iPhone 15 Ultra benefit from a flat edge, a feature that has been seen on iPhones for the past few years. Above the screen of the iPhone 15 Ultra, like the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, a capsule hole known as the dynamic island can be seen. Apple is likely to replace the capsule hole with a circular hole in the iPhone 16 Ultra.
Apple increased the brightness to 2,000 nits in the new iPhone Pro generation to set a new record in the mobile industry. The iPhone 15 Ultra video shows that this phone will have a display with a brightness of 2,400 nits. The video also claims that the iPhone 15 Ultra will be equipped with an 180Hz display, which is unlikely to happen. iPhone Pros currently have 120Hz screens.
Apple’s iPhones use the Lightning port, but due to the rules passed by the European Union in recent months, Apple may eventually be forced to use the USB-C port on the iPhone 15 Ultra. In the lower part of the iPhone 15 Ultra, the speaker holes have a different and more attractive arrangement.
In the American model of the new generation of iPhones, Apple removed the physical port of the SIM card so that these phones rely solely on the electronic SIM card. The video attributed to the iPhone 15 Ultra shows the phone with a physical SIM card slot. This video claims that the iPhone 15 Ultra will be equipped with a 5,000 mAh battery with a 48-hour charge.
Some rumors say that the iPhone 15 Ultra will be equipped with two selfie cameras on the front panel and will be able to record 8K video. It is also expected that the iPhone 15 Ultra will be equipped with more storage memory in the basic configuration and will come at a higher price than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It is said that the iPhone 15 Ultra will use the 3nm A17 processor.
