The Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo gives an insight into the Apple iPhones of 2022.
We’re only a day away from Apple April 20, 2021, an event where rumors point to the new iMacs, iPads, and the long-awaited AirTags. In a recent report by MacRumorsWell-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo told investors that Apple iPhones by 2022 could have a significant impact on camera performance. In particular, a 48 megapixel sensor that can record 8K video.
In terms of pixel size, the “iPhone 12” is iPhone 13and new 2H22 “iPhone” are approximately 1.7 µm, 2 µm and 1.25 µm, respectively. We believe the new 2H22 “iPhone” will support 48MP direct output and 12MP output (four cells merge output mode) at the same time. With a 12 megapixel output, the CIS pixel size of the new 2H22 iPhone 2.5 increases to around 2.5 µm, which is considerably larger than the hiPhone 12 and iPhone 13 and larger than existing Android phones and is close to the DSC Level is. We believe the camera quality of the new 2H22 “iPhone” will take cell phone camera photography to a new level.
The 2021 phones aren’t even out on the market yet, and if you’re someone who doesn’t update your phone every year, it might be worth waiting for if that’s your case. One problem with Apple’s phones since the 6S / 6s Plus is that they haven’t made 4K recordings for a while, while competitors with Android have supported 8K videos for years.
While 4K video on iPhones has improved dramatically with new iterations, smartphones that support 8K resolution are often better suited for Extended Reality (XR) as well as Augmented and Mixed Reality of the iPhone. XR can create unwanted softness or artifacts in the image. With an increase in resolution, the XR experience can look more realistic, lifelike and immerse users.
Kuo also says that two of the 2022 iPhones will be high-end and two low-end models, following in the footsteps of the iPhone 12 family. Another tidbit was that Apple might discontinue the iPhone mini after 2021 due to low sales, which would be unfortunate. The 5.4-inch iPhone mini is our favorite from the iPhone 12 series due to its compact footprint. Let’s hope Kuo is wrong on this point.
