iOS users have been waiting for months for Apple’s new mobile, iPhone 15, about which several details are already known, such as that they will be the first apple brand mobiles to have a USB-C port, something that the company would have done only to comply with European laws.
However, a new leak unveils not only a long-awaited feature that iPhone 15 (at least one of the models) will have, but also mentions iPhone 16, which would receive that same feature (albeit in more time, unsurprisingly).
“Buy the expensive model or sit tight.”
As the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has leaked, Apple will launch this year a new folding zoom or “periscope” on upcoming iPhone 15 models. The leak, corroborated by The Elec website, also confirms that this new camera will be exclusive to the largest model of the 15 series, the iPhone 15 Ultra (formerly Pro Max).
The website specifies that iOS users who want to try this new camera must buy the top (and most expensive) model of iPhone 15 or wait for the next range of Apple phones, iPhone 16. That is, those who want to have the smallest version of the next iPhone 15 will be left wanting or will have to wait for the launch of iPhone 16, scheduled for 2024.
The new camera, which bears certain similarities with that of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, the current flagship of the Korean company, will drastically improve the quality of photos taken on iPhone, allowing higher magnifications without losing resolution. Samsung’s mobile allows up to 10 magnifications with its optical zoom, something unattainable for the moment for Apple’s iPhone 14, limited to 3.
Apple’s next camera could not only zoom with great image resolution, but would also do so with greater fluidity. This is because its physical mechanism would allow the internal components of the lens to move faster and smoother, thus reducing the reliance on mobile digital processing when merging shots of multiple lenses.
