A recent report unveils the camera details for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro series and a new wide-angle lens.
With four reported iPhone 12 variants ranging from 5.4-inch to 6.7-inch, it seems that Apple is trying to meet everyone’s expectations. Here are the latest details about the camera setup and more.
iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Lineup Leaked Camera Features and Other Details
According to Digitimes, Sharp, LG Innotek, and O-film Tech have all got camera orders for the iPhone 12. And the amount of anticipated shipments for every module suggests which variants Apple might sell best. Also, there’s a surprise camera upgrade.
O-film and Sharp have allegedly landed the camera setup orders for the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max. The total number of shipments might reach 50 to 55 million units. Compare that with the 35 to 40 million camera setups for the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. LG Innotek is anticipated to be supplying the cameras for these higher-end devices.
As indicated previously, Digitimes details that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will arrive dual rear cameras, which most likely will include an ultra-wide camera and a wide-angle lens. The primary sensor might get an upgrade from 12MP to 64MP.
However, the surprise is said to be huge. Digitimes claims that “the wide-angle lenses of all the upcoming iPhones will receive an upgrade, from 6P to 7P.” A 7-element lens could reduce the distortion, the chromatic, and the spherical irregularity, as well. But it’s still not clear what the extra element will do.
The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max would receive three cameras, housing a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, and a new LiDAR ToF sensor for the best performance in iPhone AR apps.
Finally, Digitimes details that iPhone 12 shipments could reach 70 million this year alone. The 6.1-inch variants will likely reach 50 % of shipment; the 5.4-inch will make up 30-35 %, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, 15 %.
