A 48 megapixel camera could be the main novelty of the next iPhone 14 Pro model (along with a redesigned Notch). Aesthetically, these are the only differences, which would change the size of the rear housing that “raises” the smartphone

Even before the iPhone 13 was made official, images of an alleged iPhone 14 were already circulating on the net where the cameras were flush with the body, no longer having that square protrusion that raises the smartphone.

It was definitely too early to understand what would have been the design of the smartphone expected for the month of September of this year and in fact, the most recent rumors still suggest a relief in the back of the smartphone with a larger square “bump” and probably even more protruding.

As we move forward, there is a growing need for better cameras for greater definition and clarity as well as the need to gather more light. The sensors of the cameras have a thickness that is not negligible and must, inevitably, come out from the body of the smartphone (which at the same time are increasingly thinner).

For all these reasons, the iPhone 14 Pro will also have a bump in the back due to the cameras and as Ming-Chi Kuo suggests (for a very long time now), this year it will switch from a 12MP main sensor to a 48MP sensor. . The diagonal length of the latter will increase by 25% -35% compared to the current one and the height of the lenses will increase by 5-10%.

In short, a completely new perspective for this year’s model which should use a technology according to which 12 megapixel output will continue to be obtained

Even if the sensor will be 48MP, you will get a final image with the resolution of 12MP!

Apple would use an intelligent resizing algorithm that would analyze the data from the image taken at 48MP and then generate an output (reduced by 4 times) at 12MP. This way you would get 2 improvements in one fell swoop: the usual larger pixels with “less noise” but also more defined details.

All of this already exists and is called “four-cell blending mode output”, already in use by SONY since 2018.

Basically for every 4 pixels of the original image, you get the merger in only 1 pixel.

With 48MP it could also produce 8K video , ideal for viewing on Apple’s AR / VR headsets of the future.
