According to multiple sources recently, Apple will completely cut the bangs in the iPhone 14 Pro series and adopt a hole-out screen, which will greatly increase the screen proportion.
Apple has also been working on underscreen Face ID technology, which industry analysts have suggested could debut as early as 2023 with iPhone 15 series.
However, like iPhone 14 series, it is expected that there will be no new options for the standard version, only the high-end Pro version.
It’s worth noting that, in addition to the promise of a true full-screen screen, iPhone 15 Pro is also rumored to be the first to feature a submersible telephoto lens that dramatically improves telephoto.
According to a recent report by @sina.com Digital, a periscope telephoto lens will be added to the iPhone in the future, supplied by LG Innotek, Apple’s longtime camera module partner, and Jahwa Electronics, a new south Korean supplier.
Jahwa is reportedly building a new plant at a cost of 191 billion won, implying a partnership with Apple. Jahwa will provide Apple with a shake stabilization system (OIS) designed to improve the stability of subscope telephoto lenses.
Jahwa Electronics’ OIS patent is good for foldable zoom technology, known as periscope telephoto, the report said, citing sources familiar with the matter. This technique results in periscope camera systems using prisms to fold light into image sensors.
By mixing light in this way, suppliers can make smaller camera modules and increase the iPhone’s optical zoom range.
The telephoto lens of iPhone 15 series will be equipped with 8P lenses, improving optical performance by 10 to 20 percent compared to 7P lenses, according to Guo MingQI, an analyst at Tianfeng Securities.
