iPhone 14 Will Have Next Level Camera Upgrade: Ming-Chi Kuo

iPhone camera upgrade

A well-known Apple Leaker Ming-Chi Kuo, said today that the iPhone 13’s camera has a limited upgrade range compared to the previous generation, and the real major upgrade will be seen the next year. According to a report released by Tianfeng International, Sunny Optical is expected to still start shipping iPhone lenses in the second half of 2021, but the proportion of f1.5 7P wide-angle lens orders for iPhone 13 in 2021 may be less than 3%.

Prior to this, Guo Mingchi’s report showed that the new 2H22 iPhone will have four models, of which the high-end version is 6.7-inch and 6.1-inch, and these two screen versions also have corresponding low-end models. The camera will be upgraded to 48 million pixels (1/1.3″), and this adjustment will drive the entire Android phone to adopt the base CIS. This specification upgrade will significantly improve camera performance and integration It is good for Apple to promote AR/MR.

With the existing iPhone 12 12MP(1/2″) CIS, we predict that the iPhone 13 will use 12MP (1/1.7″) CIS. The new 2H22 iPhone will be significantly upgraded to 48 million pixels (1/1.3″) CIS. This also means that Apple will consider upgrading the iPhone 14 camera rather than iPhone 13’s camera.

In terms of pixel size, the new iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and 2H22 are approximately 1.7um, 2um, and 1.25um respectively. We believe that the 2H22 new iPhone may support direct 48 million and 12 million (four-in-one) outputs at the same time.

If it is 12 million (four-in-one) output, the CIS pixel size of the new 2H22 iPhone can be increased to about 2.5um, which is significantly larger than iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, and larger than existing Android phones, and it is close to the level of digital cameras. It is believed that the camera quality of the new 2H22 iPhone will elevate mobile phone camera photography to the next level.

The 48-megapixel camera of the new 2H22 iPhone can support 8k video shooting. In the future, watching iPhone-recorded videos on an 8k TV/monitor will have a better user experience.
