It’s the same thing every year. Barely the last iPhone available that rumors already linger on the next models. And we already have several things to say about the future smartphones
As often, it is the financial analysts who lead the boat. Today we owe Jeff Pu some predictions about the photo configuration of the hypothetical iPhone 14s.
A 48 megapixel camera in the iPhone 14?
The iPhone 13 Pro may well be among the best cameras on the market, it shows by the low resolution of its photosensors. For almost 10 years now, Apple seems to be stubbornly limiting itself to 12 megapixels, while the competition from Android does not hesitate to push up to 108-megapixel modules.
Of course, the resolution of the sensors is only one factor influencing the quality of the shots. In our opinion, the size of the photosites and the aperture of the lens are more important criteria to take into account. But casually, Apple seems to be a little behind on this aspect.
Which brings us to analyst Jeff Pu who, in his last note to which MacRumors was able to access, claims that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 48-megapixel main sensor. Ultra-wide-angle and telephoto will remain capped at 12 megapixels, Pu predicts. An observation which agrees with that formulated by Ming-Chi Kuo a few weeks ago, which added that this module would be capable of filming in 8K.
What if the entire gamut went to the 120Hz screen?
If we can easily imagine that Apple will end up adopting more powerful photo modules in the future, it will be a question of remaining more cautious on this second part of the analyzes of Jeff Pu.
First, he thinks he knows the iPhone 14 Pro will drop from 6 GB to 8 GB of RAM – which makes perfect sense. However, the man loses us by explaining that the iPhone 14 (standard) will return to 64 GB of storage by default, even though the iPhone 13 and 13 mini currently have a minimum capacity of 128 GB.
Finally, and we recommend taking enormous tweezers for this latest prediction from Jeff Pu: all iPhone 14s could benefit from the Super Retina XDR ProMotion screen, clocked at 120 Hz.
