Apple’s 2021 models, presumably called the iPhone 13 series, may see big improvements in camera. Famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released an investor note to offer predictions on the cameras on the 2021 iPhone lineup. Specifically, the ultra-wide cameras on the two high-end models – presumably called the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max – will see improvements. These two phones will have an improved f/1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus instead of the f/2.4, 5P (five-element lens) ultra-wide cameras with constant focus on the current iPhone 12 range.
Kuo’s investor note used to be accessed by MacRumors and it suggests that the two premium models in the 2021 iPhone range will shift to an improved ultra-wide camera with f/1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus. While only the premium models will shift to the improved lens in 2021, all the 2022 iPhone models (presumably called iPhone 14) will shift to the improved technology.
Kuo suggests that Largan would be the major supplier of voice coil motors (VCM) for the improved ultra-wide cameras. He predicts that Largan will obtain approximately 70 percent of the VCM orders for next year. The company reportedly got only 50 percent of the iPhone 12 series’ ultra-wide-angle lens orders.
The iPhone 13 models are expected to see a year-on-year increase in shipments because of better 5G infrastructure in H2 2021 and the improved ultra-wide cameras. Kuo paper money that the iPhone 13 range will see the same four mannequin sizes as this year’s iPhone 12 range. Whether his predictions are true, there is also an iPhone 13 mini next year.
The iPhone 12 range launched just final month and reportage on the iPhone 13 series is actually scarce at the present time. Tipster Ice Universe recently tweeted that iPhone 13 may see a ‘shorter’ notch as in comparison to iPhone 12. It will still be as wide as the one on iPhone 12, but the depth is also reduced.
