According to a popular leaker who has shared interesting information in the past, Apple plans to boost the number of cameras on the rear of the device to four. The leaker shared a design image via Twitter, where it can be observed that four camera sensors are arranged in the shape of an X.
The leaker that the Apple plains to join the MP race, and mentions a list of the sensors that can be found on the device:
- 64MP wide-angle camera which comes with 1x optical zoom and 6x digital zoom
- 40MP telephoto sensor with a variable 3x-5x optical zoom and 15-20x digital zoom
- 40MP ultra wide-angle sensor with a 25x zoom and optical reverse zoom
- 64MP sensor that will be used to capture anamorphic video
Still a rumor
Besides the presence of these sensors, it is also thought that Apple will include a LiDAR 4.0 sensor that will be for applications that feature augmented reality elements. The addition of this sensor makes sense, as it also justifies the space occupied by the black circle under the camera array.
Such an upgrade would be a great boon for iPhone fans, but it is important to keep in mind that the information comes from an unofficial source, and every rumor or leak has to be taken with a grain of salt.
