Now, a new report claims that we can expect that camera to feature much smaller pixels than previous iPhones.
According to a MacRumors report based on an unverified Weibo leak, Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro devices will see the size of the camera’s individual pixels plumet – down to just 1.22µm.
A recent post from the account “Fishing 8” on Weibo listed a large number of the iPhone 14 Pro’s technical camera specifications. In line with a multitude of rumors about the iPhone 14 Pro’s Wide camera from over the past year, the post claims that the iPhone 14 Pro will feature a 48MP camera. As a result of the increased number of megapixels, the iPhone 14 Pro’s Wide camera pixels will be smaller, purportedly measuring at 1.22µm. This is a reduction of 0.68µm compared to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The same report claims that the camera module itself will be a Sony part just as it is in the current iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max devices. It’ll also reportedly make use of the same Dual Pixel Auto Focus (DPAF) system while offering identical HDR video recording capabilities.
The Weibo leak comes via a user who has no track record with Apple information, although they do regularly post detailed camera information to the Chinese social network. Keep that in mind when considering this latest round of leaks.
