Apple is planning to introduce a major update to the iPhone camera in 2022, according to analyst (Ming-Chi Kuo), as it is expected that the flagship phones of that year will have a 48-megapixel lens. .
In a note to investors, Kuo expects the flagship iPhone 14 models to adopt a 48-inch 1 / 1.3-inch CMOS image sensor with a pixel size of 1.25μm for the wide-angle lens.
The company typically focuses on the wide-angle lens first, while in later years the advantages reach the telephoto and ultra-wide angle lens.
The sensor can support hybrid operating modes to increase pixel size and take advantage of the device’s light gathering capabilities.
48 mega pixels:
Kuo said: We believe that the iPhone, which is supposed to be released in the second half of 2022, may support 48-megapixel and 12-megapixel imaging (when four cells are combined) simultaneously.
And he continued, saying: The pixel size of the new iPhone increases to about the equivalent of 2.5 micrometers when shooting at 12 megapixels, which is much larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, and larger than the current Android phones, and close to the DSC level.
8k video recording:
It is noteworthy that the pixels in the iPhone 12 come in the size of 1.7 μm, while Kuo expects that the iPhone 13 this year will be equipped with a sensor with a pixel size of 2 μm.
The high-resolution sensor is expected to support 8K video recording, which is a significant rise from the current 4K limit for the iPhone.
Update and development:
Although frame rates were not mentioned in the report, Kuo believes the addition benefits registrations for augmented reality devices, a sector widely rumored to be entering into in the near future.
Sony produces the next sensor:
Kuo explained that the current supplier Sony produces the next sensor, as LG is working on the compact CCM camera module, and it is expected that Apple will pay more for each camera unit with the transition to 48 megapixels.
In addition to the tilt control, the CCM calibration is more complex than the current iPhone models, given the increased surface area of the sensor.
