IPhone 14 Pro could allow 8K video recording, which would be crazy (and unnecessary)

iPhone 14 Pro 8K video recording

The rumor seems to be confirmed: instead of the 12 Mpx sensor used by the iPhone 13. Currently, the iPhone 14 Pro would rely on a new 48 Mpx wide-angle module, allowing it, in particular, to 8K video recording.

Expected in the fall of 2022, the iPhone 14 Pro would finally put away the old 12 Mpx main sensor used by the iPhone 13, for a new wide-angle module rising to 48 Mpx. At least that’s what Taiwanese analyst firm TrendForce believes. As a reminder, Apple has been using 12 Mpx sensors on its various iPhones since the launch of the iPhone 6S in 2015. If this information is true, the iPhone 14 Pro would therefore be the first model in seven years to benefit from an increase in terms of megapixels.

8K video recording on the next iPhone Pro?

According to Ming Chi Kuo, often well informed about Apple products, this move upmarket would allow the iPhone 14 Pro to record videos in 8K. A first for Apple, but nothing new from the competition. The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, for example, already offers 8K video recording, even if its usefulness is quite low in practice.

Note that this is not the first time that rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro will be equipped with a 48 Mpx main module capable of filming in 8K. A stubborn rumor that seems to be confirmed over the weeks. Beyond this (possible) 8K capture, the advantage of switching to a 48 Mpx module is above all to take advantage of pixel binning, a software processing allowing several pixels to be combined to obtain only one richer in information. This method often leads to better photo quality in low light.

Better low-light photos

If Apple equips its iPhone 14 Pro well with a new 48 Mpx sensor, we trust the engineers of the firm to succeed in taking very detailed pictures of this new module, even when the brightness is lacking.

Either way, Ming Chi Kuo believes that Apple will allow the iPhone 14 Pro to take pictures at 48 Mpx (full definition) or 12 Mpx (with pixel binning active). It is possible that these two modes are used dynamically depending on the light conditions: 48 Mpx when the ambient light is sufficient, against 12 Mpx in low light. WCCFTech suggests, however, that the iPhone 14 Pro would be satisfied with photos in 12 Mpx by default in order to preserve storage space … the pictures in 48 Mpx being quite logically heavier.
