Apple launched the iPhone 14 series in September. Since then, plenty of information has spilt on the web about the next-generation iPhone 15 series. There have been reports that the next year’s models could come with a dynamic island, titanium build, solid-state buttons, USB-C port and more.
A new report by Nikkei Asia reveals information about the cameras on the iPhone 15 lineup. The next-generation flagships will come with state-of-art image sensors.
Apple iPhone 15 tipped to get new Sony sensor
Nikkei reports that Apple will be using Sony’s newest state-of-art sensor. The Japanese brand is yet to put the sensor into production, and it will reportedly be manufactured at the company’s Nagasaki plant. By 2025, Sony aims to capture 60 percent of the CMOS image sensor market.
The report says that “Sony’s new image sensor roughly doubles the saturation signal level in each pixel compared with conventional sensors.” It will help in capturing more light for better image quality. This will also reduce the problem of overexposure and underexposure. The image sensor captures a person’s face clearly even in against bright backlighting.
As per past reports, the iPhone 15 is tipped to come with a periscope lens for zoom capabilities. It may also skip an 8p lens in favour of the 7p that is found on the iPhone 14. It remains to be seen whether the camera changes will be uniform for the iPhone 15 lineup or only the Pro models.
