iPhone 14 Pro, 48MP sensor will be 21% larger than current | Rumor

The upcoming iPhone 14 Pro will offer even more detailed images thanks to a noticeably larger sensor but with smaller pixels. In line with the many rumors coming from authoritative sources in recent months, the leaker “Fishing 8” reported in a post on the Chinese social network Weibo some information about the wide-angle camera that the next generation iPhone will be equipped with.

The sensor, probably made by Sony, will be 48 MP with 1.22μm pixelsabout 0.68 μm less than the sensor used on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Despite the change in pixel size, the sensor should still be equipped with the Dual Pixel Auto Focus (DPAF) system, what Apple calls “Focus Pixels”, as well as the ability to record HDR video in 16: 9 format up to a bitrate of 60 fps up to a 8K maximum resolution.

The sensor itself should be 1 / 1.3-inch, about 21.2% larger than the current 1 / 1.65-inch. Larger sizes also result in a larger lens in order to capture more light. The downside could be represented by greater noise in images captured in low light conditions but it is conceivable that Apple has thought of something to limit this possibility.

Furthermore, these larger dimensions should also lead to an increase in the size of the island that houses the entire rear photographic compartment, about five percent more than that of the iPhone 13 Pro. Going more specifically, you should go from a width of 35.01 mm to 36.71 mm and from a height of 36.24 mm to 38.24 mm. The protrusion with respect to the body should be 4.17 mm compared to the current 3.60 mm.
