Last spring, while the iPhone 13 had not yet been released, Taiwanese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo already predicted that the iPhone 14 would be equipped with a new 48-megapixel photo sensor. The rumor was echoed recently via another analyst, Jeff Pu of Haitong International Securities. The latter claims that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will indeed be equipped with a 48 megapixel sensor.
Photosite of 2.5 µm, photo lens
Note however that the final images will not necessarily be at this resolution. Indeed, the 48 Mpxls sensor will be able to capture 12 Mpxls images in very high quality via pixel aggregation technology: four pixels would form one (48/4 = 12). Thus, such a photosite could display a large size of 2.5 µm, which is crucial for the quality of the images, in particular for increasing the sensitivity during low light conditions.
iPhone 14 Pro, 120 Hz screen on all models?
The analyst also adds that the Pro models will be equipped with 8 GB of Ram (6 GB for the iPhone 13 Pro), and that all the iPhone 14 will have 120 Hertz screens. Not to be taken at face value, however, knowing that Jeff Pu only has a reliability rating of 53.3% on Apple Track. Source: macrumors
