The basic iPhone 14 model was quite a disappointment for everyone, not only but also because of the minimally improved 12 megapixel cameras on the back. According to the latest information, if nothing else, this will supposedly change in the case of the next generation, which will already have a 48-megapixel primary image capture module.
Haitong Intl Tech Research’s Jeff Pu writes in his report that the base models, i.e. the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, will get main cameras equipped with a triple-layer 48-megapixel sensor. Thanks to these modules, the devices will be able to have better zooming capabilities, of course even then they will not reach the Pro models, since only the more expensive devices will still get telephoto units, and of course LiDAR will remain for them as an exclusive function.
In addition to the 3x telephoto lens, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will also be equipped with a 6x periscope module. The 3-nanometer Apple A17 Bionic chipset will serve under the cover of the Pro-category devices, with 8 GB of RAM now added to the 6 slots. In the case of the basic iPhone 15 models, there will be a switch to A16, which means that the cheaper devices will always go into battle with an older chipset.
It is expected that all four devices will be charged via a USB-C connector, which means that the Apple manufacturer will comply with EU regulations, but there will still be a difference between them: according to prestigious analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, only the Pro models have then with a port conforming to the USB 3.2 standard. For other devices, the maximum data transfer rate will be 2.0.
Pro mobile phones will have a titanium case instead of stainless steel, and they can be equipped with virtual volume and power buttons, which will be similar to the home button of the iPhone SE. It is said that Apple’s current goal is to have the iPhone 15 devices on sale from September 23.
