iPhone 13 Pro, Pro Max will have an improved ultra-wide camera next year: Kuo
Apple’s 2021 models, presumably called the iPhone 13 series, can see big improvements in the camera. Leading analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released an investor note to offer predictions on the cameras in the iPhone 2021 lineup. Specifically, the ultra-wide cameras on the two high-end models, presumably called the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, you will see improvements. These two phones will have an improved f / 1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus instead of the ultra-wide f / 2.4, 5P (five-element lens) with a fixed focus on the current iPhone 12 range.
Kuo’s investor note was accessed by MacRumors and suggests that the two premium models in the 2021 iPhone lineup will switch to an improved ultra-wide camera with f / 1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus. While only the premium models will switch to the upgraded lens in 2021, all of 2022 iPhone The models (supposedly called iPhone 14) will switch to improved technology.
Kuo suggests that Largan will be the main supplier of moving coil motors (VCM) for the upgraded ultrawide cameras. He predicts that Largan will get about 70 per cent of VCM’s orders by next year. The company reportedly obtained only 50 per cent of the iPhone 12 ultra-wide-angle lens ordering from the series.
iPhone 13 models are expected to see a year-over-year increase in shipments due to better 5G infrastructure in the second half of 2021 and improved ultrawide cameras. Kuo notes that the iPhone 13 range will see the same four model sizes as this year’s iPhone 12 range. If your predictions are true, there may be an iPhone 13 mini next year.
The iPhone 12 range was launched last month and reports on the iPhone 13 series are really scarce at the moment. Tipster Ice Universe recently tweeted that the iPhone 13 can see a “shorter” notch compared to the iPhone 12. It may still be as wide as the iPhone 12, but the depth can be reduced.
