So an analyst decided to skip the number 13 (cause that means bad luck) and instead analysed what the iPhone 14 could be.
Apple Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the highest-end iPhone 14 would sport a 48mp camera. However, this camera is not your typical 48mp seen on midrangers and some flagships, but instead this will have a large µm pixel size with a native resolution of 1.25µm
He also said that the sensor will measure 1/1.3in. He said that the 2H22 iPhone may support native 48mp and 12mp output under a quad-bayer system simultaneously. He said that the largest µm pixel size of this sensor would be 2.5µm and would support 8K video recording, bigger than most Android phones and bigger than the iPhone 12 sensors, making it one of the largest sensors ever put on a phone.
“We believe that the new 2H22 iPhone may support direct 48MP output and 12MP (four cells merge output mode) output simultaneously.” Kuo said
“With 12MP output, the CIS pixel size of the new 2H22 iPhone increases to about 2.5um, which is significantly larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, and larger than existing Android phones, and close to the DSC level.” he added.
Along with this camera prediction, Kuo said that Apple may discontinue the iPhone Mini line in 2022, due to poor sales and unexpected lowly figures.
