While Apple is experiencing delays in the production of its iPhones due to the health crisis in China in recent months, the brand is not losing sight of the idea of making its future iPhone 12 a revolutionary smartphone, especially on the side of the picture.
Confinement or not, Apple takes the opportunity to move forward on its next iPhone 12, expected for the fall of 2020. If we still do not know if the next smartphone from the manufacturer will come out as planned, on the other hand, we are starting to see the first outlines of this next model.
It is analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, specialist in iPhone forecasts, who unveils his report on the supposed novelties of the next American smartphone. Unsurprisingly, where the American brand seems to want to go all out is in the photo. This in order to compete with its main competitor with the Samsung Galaxy S20 but probably also the Huawei P40.
According to the analyst’s words, we learn that the next iPhone 12 will be equipped with a dual photo sensor while the iPhone 12 Pro would have a triple, like its predecessors, the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro . On the side of this triple lens, which we would also find on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, we would find a wide-angle lens of 1 / 2.6 ″ with an optical system with seven lenses, as well as a ToF sensor. More or less the same as the competition.
A revolutionary stabilizer for the iPhone 12 Pro?
Where Apple’s next smartphone could go even further, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, is stabilization. First, it will apply to all lenses, not just the main sensor and telephoto lens like on the iPhone 11 Pro. This time, we will also find a stabilizer on the ultra wide angle.
To top it off, the latter will be entitled to a slight improvement. Noticeably called Sensor-shift, this time it will correct the effects of movement directly from the photo sensor itself, rather than acting on the optics. Enough to ensure incredible performance according to the analyst, all on a sensor which should be a little more imposing than currently. But this gain in size, rather than being a defect, will allow better light capture and an improvement in the quality of the images when the brightness is not there.
As if that were not enough, Ming-Chi Kuo is already looking further into the future and is thinking of 2021. For the iPhone 13, you will not have to have a Pro or Pro Max version to benefit from these exceptional photo performances. They should be included in the basic version of the model. To go even further, by 2022, for the iPhone 14, probably, Apple could for the first time develop periscope optical technology in its photo modules. But we are far from being there yet …
