Apple will keep the camera bump on the iPhone 14 Pro as it will house the upgraded 48MP camera system, that is according to reliable analyst Ming-Chiu Kuo who reported on the subject.
A couple of days ago, Max Weinbach shared leaked schematics of the iPhone 14 Pro that gives us more details regarding the design of the next iPhone. One thing noticed by many from the images is the continued bump around the camera system. Apple has been rumored to flush the protruded camera bump on the next iPhone devices.
Now, reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has stated in a tweet he posted that the reason Apple is continuing to provide the protruded design is due to the inclusion of the upgraded 48MP camera system:
“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 also claims that the diagonal length of the iPhone’s contact image sensor (CIS)will increase by 25 to 35 percent while the height of the 7P lens system will increase by 5 to 10 percent due to the massive increase from 12MP to 48MP.
Last year, Kuo reported that Apple will increase the megapixel count on the iPhone 14 from 12MP to 48MP — the biggest camera upgrade that we will see –. Apple reportedly finalized the design of the iPhone 14 with trial production already starting.
Apple is anticipated to debut the iPhone 14 lineup this September. Other than the 48MP camera upgrade, the devices could feature a refreshed design, 8K video, potentially a full eSIM variant, and 8GB of RAM – the highest ever on any iPhone.
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 (vs. 13 Pro/Pro Max's 12MP). The diagonal length of 48MP CIS will increase by 25-35%, and the height of 48MP's 7P lens will increase by 5-10%. https://t.co/lrwgmnLNce
