Recently, according to foreign source Max Weinbach. Apple is testing an iPhone 12 Phone model with a 64-megapixel main camera. Seeking to improve the zoom function, but not using a periscope lens.
In addition, Apple will also add support for night mode on all cameras on the back of the iPhone 12 Pro model, while using a larger 4400mAh battery.
Judging from the previous news of the blogger, the credibility of his news is still relatively high. If this information is true, then Apple will have significant improvements in photography and battery life. I don’t know if it is affected by the arms race on pixels by mobile phone manufacturers such as Xiaomi. If the iPhone 12 uses a 64-megapixel lens this time, it is really very unexpected.
After all, Apple is very cautious in providing users with higher-pixel cameras, and it can even be said to be rampant. The scheme of the rear 12-megapixel lens has been used from the iPhone 6s released in 2015 to the iPhone 11 series in 2019.
Compared with the high resolution brought by high pixels. Apple values the high dynamic range and low noise caused by the larger unit pixel size. After all, the number of pixels is not the only factor that determines the quality of a photo. Increasing the number of pixels without changing the area of the sensor will necessarily reduce the area of a single pixel, thereby losing dynamic range and low-light shooting performance.
If Apple iPhone 12 increases the number of pixels to 64 Megapixels this time, it is expected that the size of its camera sensor will also expand a lot. In addition, ISP and A-series processors will definitely have huge upgrades to reduce. The delay in filming imaging and maintain a smooth experience. Do you think you can book DXOMARK first for such an iPhone?
