Future flagship smartphones iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have 48 MP wide-angle lenses, which will be the next step in the evolution of iPhone cameras. Haitong International Securities (HIS) analyst Jeff Pu made such a prediction.
"The 2024 iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models will get Wi-Fi 7 support and an updated 48MP ultra-wide camera lens," the analyst said.
According to MacRumors, Pro-smartphones will get three lenses next year, two with 48MP resolution and the other with 12MP.
Currently, the flagships of the iPhone 14 series, iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, have three cameras: the main lens has a resolution of 48 MP, and the other two have a resolution of 12 MP.
Experts believe that the improved wide-angle sensor will allow the camera to absorb more light and capture more details, resulting in even better quality photos.
At the beginning of August, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the main camera of the entire base series of iPhone 16 smartphones will also receive a multilayer sensor.
For its part, the authoritative insider Digital Chat Station claims that the iPhone 16 Pro Max will be equipped with a periscope camera, which will significantly improve the zoom quality. The focus distance of the camera will be more than 300 millimeters. Compared to the current flagship iPhone 14 Pro Max, which has a focus distance of 77 millimeters, this is a serious increase – almost four times.
