The iPhone 12 would finally skip the 64-megapixel photo sensor. As has been the case since 2015, Apple would therefore once again rely on 12-megapixel modules. On the other hand, these objectives would be more imposing than those of the iPhone 11, reveals a leaker.
The launch of the iPhone 12 is fast approaching! In recent days, the leaks concerning the new generation of iPhone have multiplied. Recently, stolen photos of the iPhone 12 Pro Max came to confirm the integration of a 120 Hz screen. At the same time, we learned that Apple intends to reduce production costs as much as possible by betting on cheaper batteries.
On the same subject: the sensors of the iPhone 12 would compress photos and video directly without draining the battery
Apple would settle for 12-megapixel sensors, so what?
More recently, a prominent informant by the name of Komiya spoke of the iPhone 12 camera data sheet on his Twitter account. In the past, the leaker has often hit the nail on the head. However, we invite you to take this information with a grain of salt while waiting for the keynote.
According to him, Apple would not integrate no 48 megapixel or 64 megapixel sensor within the iPhone 12, nor on the cheaper models or high-end variants. As has been the case since the release of the iPhone 6s, the Cupertino company would be satisfied with 12-megapixel photo modules. Apple would wait for the iPhone 13, scheduled for late 2021, to offer a 48-megapixel camera.
As a reminder, the resolution of the sensors is not the only variable that comes into play in the quality of the photographs. Despite its 12 megapixels, the iPhone 11 Pro managed to rank among the best cameras on the market last year. Apple compensates in particular with algorithms and excellent software processing.
However, the 12-megapixel sensors of the iPhone 12 would be different from those of the iPhone 11. According to Komiya, Apple would integrate larger and more imposing lenses. With larger modules, the camera would be able to capture more light and detail. In low light conditions, the smartphone should therefore perform well.
We will know more about the iPhone 12 during the official keynote expected in early October 2020. We will tell you more as soon as possible. While waiting for more information, please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
