Apple seems like it is trying to prove something with this year’s series, which includes the four reported iPhone 12 models, starting with the 5.4-inch model to the 6.7-inch version. Now, a new leak has revealed the camera specs for all four models while mentioning three different suppliers.
According to Digitimes, LG Innotek, Sharp, and O-film Tech have all been asked to develop cameras for the iPhone 12, and the number of expected deliveries for each version of the smartphone points towards what models Apple expects to ship most.
Sharp and O-film have allegedly been ordered to develop the camera module for the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, respectively. The total number of shipments Apple expects to make rounds up to between 50 and 55 million units. On the other hand, LG Innotek is in charge of delivering 35 to 40 million camera modules for both the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
A Surprise in the iPhone 12 Series
According to previous reports, Digitimes claimed that the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 12 Max would have dual rear cameras, which will allegedly include a wide-angle lens and an ultra-wide camera. The main sensor could be upgraded from 12MP to 64MP.
Digitimes also said that ‘the wide-angle lenses of all the new iPhones will be upgraded from 6P to 7P.’ A 7-element lens may help decrease chromatic aberration, spherical aberration, and distortion, but there are no details as of yet regarding the use of the additional element.
The iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max would reportedly feature three cameras, getting a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. There should also be a new LiDAR ToF sensor that will provide users with better performance in iPhone AR apps and could also offer an improvement to photography.
