iPhones Will Get Cameras Like Samsung And Huawei In Two Years
The new line of Apple smartphones, which will be released in 2022, will receive periscope-type telephoto lenses-like the flagship devices of Samsung and Huawei. These cameras, which provide a greater focal length, will allow you to zoom in five or more times without losing quality.
This news was reported in a note to investors by TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who rarely makes mistakes in his forecasts for future Apple innovations. According to him, almost half of the new optics for iPhones in 2022 will be supplied by South Korean Semco. For 2020 models, the same company will produce an improved autofocus motor, 9to5Mac writes with reference to the report.
Periscope cameras use prisms and mirrors located along the entire length of the smartphone to reflect and focus light on the sensor. In conventional cameras, the sensor is placed just behind the lens. Models with zoom lenses that provide 5x optical magnification are offered by Oppo and Huawei. Earlier this year, they were joined by Samsung, which released the Galaxy S20 Ultra with a 48-megapixel periscope camera.
Starting with the iPhone 7 Plus, which was released in 2016, Apple installs a telephoto lens with the ability to increase the image two times in some models. If the company does switch to periscope cameras, iPhones will be able to shoot with a 5x zoom or more.
The largest optical zoom on the market is implemented in the flagship Huawei P40 Pro Plus, which was introduced in March this year. Its 8-MP telephoto lens provides 10x optical zoom, hybrid — 20x, and digital-100x.
