Guo Mingchi, who is known as the first brother of Apple broke the news, today gave the latest news that the iPhone 13’s camera has a limited upgrade range compared to the previous generation, and the real substantial upgrade will be 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 megapixels (1/1.3″), and this adjustment will drive the entire Android phone to adopt the base CIS.
It is mentioned in the forecast that the new 2022
iPhone will have 4 models. The high-end 6.7-inch and 6.1-inch cameras will be significantly upgraded to 48 megapixel (1/1.3″). This specification upgrade will significantly improve camera performance and integration. It is good for Apple to promote AR/MR.
The existing iPhone 12 12 megapixel (1/2″) CIS,
we predict that the iPhone 13 will use 12 megapixel (1/1.7″) CIS. The new 2H22 iPhone will be significantly upgraded to 48 megapixel (1/1.3″) CIS.
In terms of pixel size,
The new iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and 2H22 are about 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 mega (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 bring mobile phone camera photography to a new 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/display will have a better user experience.
