Washington: Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro could come packed with a 48MP main camera.
As per GSM Arena, this will mark the third time an iPhone has increased the resolution of its main camera (iPhone 4 to 4S – 5MP to 8MP; iPhone 6 to 6s – 8MP to 12MP) and would be a serious shift in Apple’s way of doing cameras.
(*14*) likely that Apple needs the higher resolution in order to offer 8K video recording on its Pro phones, but that they’ll also shoot in different resolutions, depending on the scene.
A portrait or a landscape could use more megapixels, while a low-light photo could end up pixel-binned to 12MP.
Renowned Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo has pointed to a 48MP main camera on the iPhone 14 Pro on a number of occasions. He’s also said that a periscope zoom is coming with the iPhone 15 in 2023.
As for the front of the iPhone 14, at least two reports claim that it will drop the full-sized notch in favour of a punch-hole camera, either a single or a pill-shaped one with FaceID built-in.
