Things are getting pretty impressive with newer and upcoming iPhones, huh?
According to back up reports, Apple’s 2022 iPhone lines will have a 10x optical zoom camera feature without sabotaging the camera’s physical attributes. As Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated, the supply chain indication dictates that this feature will be used in the upcoming Apple Models.
His statement on the 10X Optical Zoom
Kuo details Apple’s plans for its iPhone camera suppliers. Kuo believes that Semco and Sunny Optical (the ‘best’ Korean and Chinese lens suppliers respectively) are joining the iPhone supply chain this year.
In 2022, Kuo believes the iPhone will feature periscope telephoto lenses manufactured by Semco.
The next iPhone may include a Samsung periscope lens.
Digitimes reported that Apple is looking to improve the camera set-up of its next devices — and the way it wants to do this is by beefing up its phones’ zooming capabilities.
It appears though that rather than build this functionality by itself, Apple is looking to partner with South Korean companies in order to make it a reality. And, although nothing has been finalized, Apple may use a Samsung periscope lens.Kuo
What do Periscope lenses do?
These lenses are basically a tube with two 45-degree lenses mounted and can be bent 90 degrees. This physical feature enables us to have a greater optical zoom, specifically a 10x optical zoom. Another model that has this feature is Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Apple’s New iPhones Cuts
Apple has planned to attach 5G capabilities to the new iPhones that will come into the market. However, the bad news is that the 5G components have higher costs. And the company is currently looking for ways to even out the price of its parts to make up the difference.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, which was also reported earlier by MacRumors, said that Apple has changed technology for its battery, for example, and uses a simpler and smaller design.
Despite this information, Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Apple’s efforts in doing some changes and improvements; the 5G technology would force users to use different chips that feature new technology that makes faster connections possible.
