Evidence shows that the tech giant is obsolete a 12-megapixel sensor, replacing it with a 48-megapixel model, at least inside one of the iPhone 14 Pro lenses. Mingochi KooAlong with the rumors, Apple’s familiar product analyst has also issued a note to investors that could confirm this.
Emphasizing that the iPhone 14 Pro models will be equipped with a 48-megapixel camera, Ko points out that the new sensor will enable Apple’s high-end phones to record 8K video. Of course, at first glance, recording 8K video may not be so important for ordinary users; But Cu says the Cupertino-based goal is to produce high-resolution content for the much-anticipated hybrid reality headset that is said to be unveiled in the second half of 2022.
The display is one of the most important components and interface between the user and the imaginary world of headsets. The Cupertinos plan to equip their first generation of augmented reality headsets with the most advanced display available. It is expected that for the first time in Apple products, the headset will use Sony’s state-of-the-art micro-LED displays with stunning 8K resolution to deliver content; Therefore, it is not unexpected that Apple introduced 8K video recording in order to unveil this headset for iPhones.
The analyst had previously claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro models might support 48-megapixel and 12-megapixel output, possibly with a process called “pixel binning”. Of course, it should be noted that some Android smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, are also taking advantage of this feature.
In general, the pixel composition can allow iPhone 14 Pro models to take 48-megapixel photos in bright light and 12-megapixel photos in low light to maintain image quality. Upgrading the iPhone camera over the next two years is said to help boost the market share, revenue and profits of Taiwanese manufacturer Largan Precision.
Finally, Mingchi Ko emphasizes that the Cupertinos will bring the first telescope lens design to the iPhone in 2023. Periscope lenses or folding lenses are usually composed of prism and mirror assemblies that effectively increase the focal length of the camera array in a compact dimension.
