Apple is all set to launch the iPhone 15 series later this year. Reports suggest that both the series will include four models, with the iPhone 15 Pro Max model likely to be named iPhone 15 Ultra. It has been said that the upcoming series will feature a camera upgrade – a periscope lens – never seen before in Apple devices. Now, a new report suggests that the iPhone 16 Pro may also include the periscope lens.
iPhone 16 Pro to Sport a ‘Slightly Larger’ Display than iPhone 14 Pro
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has reported that the iPhone 16 Pro will come with a ‘slightly larger’ display than the 6.1-inch panels of the iPhone 14 Pro. While the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to launch with an unchanged display size. It has been suggested that the iPhone 15 Pro Max could feature a periscopic lens to increase the phone’s zooming capacity. Kuo’s report suggests that the same lens will also be included in the iPhone 16 Pro model.
What is a Periscope Lens?
The periscopic lens allows the phone to capture high-quality, more zoomed-in images, further than the usual 2 times zoom most cameras support, without any grains or distortions. This lens uses a prism to reflect light to multiple internal lenses at 90 degrees onto the camera sensor, making the lens longer than a telephoto lens and thereby delivering better optical zoom.
iPhone 16 Pro to Have 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch Display
As per DSCC analyst Ross Young, the Pro models of the iPhone 16 series are expected to feature significantly larger display panels than the iPhone 14 Pro models. The iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models are likely to come with 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch display panels, respectively. For comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have a 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display respectively.
It is expected that the iPhone 16 Pro may launch in late 2024. With the periscope lens included, the phone will offer superior optical zoom and improved image quality.
