A recent Weibo post reinforced rumors of a larger camera module in the iPhone 14 Pro. Last week, Ming-Chi Kuo, the famous Apple product analyst, also claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max they will arrive with a much larger camera module than current models. This, he explains, is due to the 48 megapixel sensor which could integrate the company’s new cell phones.
This was commented on by the analyst through a post on his official Twitter account. Here he quoted a tweet from 9to5Mac where the web explained that the new schemes of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max showed significant changes in their appearance.
Among them, the elimination of the famous notch, and the integration of a larger camera module. To the latter, Kuo added that the main reason for the increase was due to Apple’s new proposal for integrate higher megapixel cameras; a section in which those of Cupertino do not have priority in the most recent generations of the terminal.
This way it ensures that The rear camera of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will increase to 48 MP; a considerable increase over the 12 MP of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. Furthermore, he details that increasing the CIS (CMOS image sensors) would be between 25 and 35%; and the height of the 48MP 7P telephoto lens will increase by 5-10%.
If it were true, we would be before a significant photographic leap for the iPhone. After all, the 12 MP configuration has been around for several generations among Apple phones; who surprised model after model due to the impressive quality of the captures. Now, an increase to 48MP would ensure even more aggressive competition against its Android rivals in the same range.
More details on the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max camera
According to leaked plans on new models, the camera module of the iPhone 14 Pro It will arrive with measurements of 36.73 x 38.21 mm. This results in a 5% increase on each side of the module. Likewise, we will have an even more remarkable camera, reaching 4.17 mm, a difference of more than half a millimeter compared to the 3.60 of the iPhone 13 Pro.
In turn, as the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max’s cameras grow in size, the device itself will arrive in slightly smaller dimensions. According to the report of 9to5Mac, the width of the device will decrease to 77.58 mm, while its height will decrease by 0.1 mm, reaching 160.7 mm. Although it is also a bit thicker.
The camera bump on the iPhone 14 Pro will also be larger, although slightly smaller compared to the Max version. In any case, it doesn’t look like Apple is going to differentiate the cameras from the Pro models again like it did with the iPhone 12.
The iPhone 14 Pro will also be very similar to the iPhone 13 Pro in terms of dimensions, although users will certainly not be able to reuse the iPhone 13 Pro case.
Absoutely it’s not the first time Kuo predicts a 48 MP camera for the iPhone 14 family. The analyst also believes that it will give the possibility of reaching the 8K in video recording in the new models, but we will have to wait for the official presentation to confirm it.
In addition to these camera changes, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are expected to remove the notch and replace it with a double hole in the screen. This new generation would also have a better battery, while all models in the family would offer 120 Hz screens and 6 GB of RAM. Of course, the standard iPhone 14 will apparently arrive with the A15 Bionic chip, the same one we’ve already seen in the company’s current devices.
