Apple doesn’t like to upgrade camera hardware on its iPhones frequently. It’s like Samsung’s practice of sticking at 25W charging for many years. However, “some things never change and some things do…” @Morpheus, Matrix. The last part of Morpheus’ words refers to the upcoming iPhone 14 series. We know that the iPhone 14 Pro Max will use a 48MP camera lens instead of a 12MP one. Also, the thickness of the camera module will be modified as well. The camera module will protrude.
iPhone 14 Pro Max Camera
Today, a Chinese leaker disclosed the details of the camera module of the iPhone 14 series. As he said, “the iPhone 14 Pro series has a high-pixel ultra-large rear lens module that is visible to the naked eye. Apple’s camera experience has always been leading. The only shortcoming was the lack of an ultra-telephoto lens. “
The sensor size of the main camera of the iPhone 14 Pro Max will be increased to 1/1.3 inches, with a single pixel of 1.22μm. It will also have quad-pixel integration (12MP) support. This sensor may be customized for Sony.
The reason why the iPhone 14 Pro models need to upgrade the imaging module should be to comply with the industry trend. After all, recording 8K 16:9 video requires at least a 33MP lens. At present, the 200-megapixel Android flagship is about to hit the market. It seems unreasonable if Apple still insists on the ancestral 12-megapixel.
With stronger camera hardware, the price of the iPhone 14 Pro will definitely increase. The price of the iPhone 14 Pro is going to start at $1,099, which is $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro.
The iPhone 14 standard version and iPhone 14 Max will use a diagonally-placed dual-camera arrangement. At the same time, the Pro variants – iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max – will use a triple camera module. Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro Max camera bump reaches 4.17mm, while the body thickness is 7.85mm.
Of course, the Cupertino-based company has already started production of the upcoming models. According to supply chain sources, shipments of high-end versions’ modules remain strong in the second half.
Well, if wrapping up, this year’s Apple iPhone 14 series will be divided into four models in two sizes. They will differ by appearance, processor, camera, and other important features that have a huge impact when buying a new phone.
