It is very clear that it will turn out like this year. That the presentation event of the successor to this year’s iPhone 12 and we will know all about him. The first rumors are already circulating about the characteristics of the cameras of the next iPhone range of 2022.
Different rumors suggest that will have a new “ periscope ” lens
Korean electronics industry news site The Elec just published that Apple may use Samsung-made components for a “bent” telephoto lens in at least some iPhone models released in 2022. This would allow a significant increase in optical zoom, becoming ten times without loss of concentration.
This article claims that the Electro-Mecánica subsidiary plant in Samsung would provide some components as actuators and lenses to LG, which in turn would use those parts to make the folded camera module to supply Apple. The move would prevent Apple from damaging its relationship with LG and fix patent issues.
We already commented a few days ago that Ming-Chi Kuo talked about the possibility of a bent or “periscope” lens on the 2022 iPhones, with 10x projected magnification. Such a system would allow for a significant increase in optical zoom on iPhones, well beyond the current 2x and 2.5x limits on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, respectively. Huawei’s P40 Pro + smartphone, for example, has a periscope lens with up to 10x optical zoom.
With the camera optics folded in, the light absorbed by the image sensor is folded or “folded”, allowing higher optical zoom and better image qualitywhile maintaining a compact lens design suitable for smartphones. We will see.
