A few weeks ago, Hong Kong analyst Jeff Pu of the investment firm Haitong International Securities, said that the two least expensive models of the next iPhone 15 range - the 15 and 15 Plus - will benefit from a main photo lens 48 Mpxls on the back, with a triple-layer sensor to capture more light and improve image quality.
An indiscretion recently corroborated by the Chinese site ITHome which reports the sounds of corridors heard on the production lines. Specifically, Sony reportedly asked manufacturer Taiwan Semiconductor for help in honoring Apple's request. In view of Sony's inability to respond to the order of the Cupertino company when this was not the case in previous years, analysts deduce the integration of such a sensor on more models, the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus mentioned above.
As a reminder, the very first 48 Mpxls sensors from Apple arrived for the first time last year on iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. It is therefore significant to see this novelty arrive so quickly on the "first price" models of the Cupertino company.
