The iPhone 12 is just coming out, but we already have some ideas on what next year’s lineup will look like – according to TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s 2021 iPhones will stay the same. New form and screen sizes were introduced with the iPhone 12 series, but offer an improved ultra-wide camera on the high-end Pro and Pro Max models (via MacRumors).
Kuo has made predictions about the iPhone 12 series and will now appear to reveal what to expect from 2021 models almost a year before they launch. This time, Kuo says the Pro and Pro Max’s ultra-wide cameras will be upgraded from the current f / 2.4 five-element lens setup to the f / 1.8 six-element lens with autofocus. A larger aperture captures more light, is capable of enhancing low-light shots, and we are curious to know whether the increased AF capability and the increased number of lens elements can make it easy for you. Take great super wide pictures or not.
We recently saw Apple dedicate the best cameras to its most expensive iPhones, with the iPhone 12 Pro Max getting a bigger sensor and variable-sensor optical image stabilization for the camera. main and longer telephoto lenses. But the Pro Max didn’t buy you a better ultra-wide camera than any other iPhone 12; That will change next year, according to Kuo.
By 2022, Kuo hopes the new ultra-wide lens will become standard across the entire iPhone lineup, but there could be a new high-end camera: Kuo previously predicted that the 2022 iPhone would have the same telephoto lens. like the lens we see for the first time shredded the Huawei P30 Pro. The periscope telephoto lenses enable increased optical zoom by spacing the lenses inside the phone body and using mirrors to direct them to the back.
The new cameras join Kuo’s other predictions for the iPhone in 2021: a completely portless flagship, a 120Hz ProMotion display, and a new generation of Touch ID integrated directly into the screen and / or power button. So even though Kuo says they may look similar to the iPhone 12, they could come with some key changes.
