The rumor: Apple’s new camera system on iPhone 14 Pro will have some big consequences, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (72.5% accurate).
- “The main reason for the larger and more prominent rear-camera bump of the 14 Pro/Pro Max is upgrading the wide camera to 48MP,” Kuo says
- This significantly higher megapixel system apparently means that multiple elements of the new camera system are increasing in size…contrary to what the initial renders of iPhone 14 depicted.
Sam’s take: I can’t believe I actually thought, even for a second, that we would get a flush camera on an iPhone again. To be fair, I’m okay with the camera bump increasing if that means we’ll get some even crazier images and videos from iPhone 14…but it is getting to the point where it’s comical. How much further can you push a camera bump on a phone considering the iPhone 13 Pro is already pretty ridiculous?
