iPhone 15 Series to Raise the Bar with 48MP Camera – What You Need to Know
The forthcoming iPhone 15 series, which is anticipated to debut in September 2023, may include a new 48MP primary camera sensor on the back, according to recent reports. The stock iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models are most likely to receive this significant camera upgrade from the iPhone 14 Pro series, according to an analyst research note by Jeff Pu from Haitong International Securities.
The non-Pro models, according to Pu, will have a new three-stacked sensor that collects more light for higher-quality images. The analyst speculates, however, that yield concerns with the stacked sensor may cause delays in the mass production of the vanilla variants.
A 12MP secondary ultra-wide camera and a new 48MP main camera will be located on the back of the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus. In contrast, the triple-camera arrangement on the Pro versions will have a LiDar sensor, a 48MP main camera, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and a 12MP telephoto camera with a 3x optical zoom. An optical zoom of up to 6x is anticipated for the periscope lens on the 15 Pro Max.
The basic and Pro models of the iPhone 15 series will also have a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, while the 15 Plus and 15 Pro Max will have a 6.7-inch screen. All four iPhones will get Apple’s Dynamic Island feature, and the Pro models will still have 120Hz ProMotion technology.
A USB Type-C port, a titanium frame for the Pro variants, an improved A17 Bionic SoC, and up to 8GB of RAM are all rumoured to be included. The devices will have a new Mute button in the Pro variants and feature 20W rapid charging. iOS 17 will automatically launch on each of the four iPhones.
