Some 2020 iPhones Could Deploy Sensor-Shift Stabilization Camera Tech [Report]
We might have only been carrying our 2019 iPhones for a few months but attention has absolutely turned to what the 2020 iPhones will have in store. And according to a new report, they could have a more advanced image stabilization technique up their sleeves.
While iPhones have had optical image stabilization for a few years, new sensor-shift hardware is something similar yet different. While current iPhones move the lens element within a camera, sensor-shift instead moves the sensor itself.
Quite why that would make it inherently better isn’t yet clear. It could be that Apple is simply changing things up to enable space savings. But whatever the reason for the switch, this is the latest rumor to come out of the 2020 iPhone merry-go-round.
There’s already been more discussion about next year’s iPhones than we can remember and it’s only going to increase as the months roll on. Some analysts believe we will see at least four new iPhones launch next year, with a wildcard iPhone SE replacement thrown in for good measure.
At this point, much of it seems to be guesswork, but the further we move into 2020 it’s likely that some of those guesses will begin to solidify.
