Citing unverified information obtained via Chinese social media website Weibo, MacRumors is claiming that this year’s flagship ‘iPhone 14’ Pro models will feature a 48-megapixel camera with a considerably larger sensor.
Earlier reports have also suggested that we’ll see an increased number of megapixels in the iPhone 14’s updated camera and that the Pro model’s wide camera will be smaller, purportedly measuring at 1.22µm. This will mean a reduction of 0.68µm compared to the current iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max devices.
According to today’s report, the iPhone 14 camera sensor will be a Sony unit, similar to that of the iPhone 13 Pro . It will, however, measure 1/1.3-inches in size, which marks a 21.2% increase over the 1/1.65-inches sensor of the wide camera on the iPhone 13 series.
Despite the change in pixel size, the iPhone 14 Pro will allegedly feature the same Dual Pixel Auto Focus (DPAF) system, marketed by Apple as “Focus Pixels,” that the iPhone has offered since the iPhone 6 in 2014, and the same ability to record 16:9 HDR video at up to 60fps.
The 1/1.3-inch sensor size is the same as Samsung’s 50MP GN1 sensor, which is used in the Google Pixel 6.
If these details turn out to be true, the iPhone 14 Pro models will offer larger, higher-resolution images with much finer details than the current generation iPhones.
