Apple stuck with the 12MP sensors on its flagship devices and even though the number may not be as daring as those on devices such as the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the likes, the 12MP triple system on all the premium-tier iPhones often produce an incredible result.
But a recent report has it that Apple might be moving away from the 12MP sensor to 48MP by the time it debuts the iPhone 14 Pro by the year 2022.
Even though many are yet to personally experience the current iPhone 13 series to its full potential, one Mr. Pu is already showing us what the future iPhone 14 Pro’s camera will be like.
The rumored report came based on a research note with Haitong International Securities that analyst Jeff Pu shared with reporters at MacRumors.
Pu further added that the ultra-wide and the telephoto sensors on the next-gen iPhone 14 Pro will remain 12MP.
And while the report may be interesting, another popular Apple analyst, the renowned Ming-Chi Kuo made a similar prediction where he made it known that the next-gen iPhone 14 Pro will sport a 48MP sensor and could even shoot 8K videos.
But the camera setup isn’t the only interesting thing predicted by Mr. Pu who said that both iPhone 14 Pro models will come with an upgraded 8GB of RAM rather than the current 6GB of RAM on the current iPhone 13 Pro models.
That to me makes a lot of sense considering the fact that the device will be able to shoot an 8K video. It definitely needs to get its storage space from somewhere right?
Other predictions made by Jeff Pu about the next-gen iPhone series include a fast 120Hz refresh rate across all models (including non-pro models).
He also said that Apple could potentially revert to offering 64GB of inbuilt storage for its base iPhone models.
As disappointing as this may sound, it doesn’t make any technical sense considering the fact that the components of the device could be potentially cracked up to perform even better.
Intentionally dwindling the storage would be a big mistake for Apple which is why I think that may never be the case. But again, it’s just a rumor.
