With the iPhone 14 launch event fast approaching, rumors are becoming more and more concise and the latest one comes from trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will reportedly feature new ultrawide camera sensors that can capture 1.4µm pixels . This should result in more detailed shots and better low-light performance. For reference, the current iPhone 13 Pro duo capture 1.0µm pixels with their ultrawide cameras.
The new CMOS imaging sensor will be joined by a new voice coil motor (VCM) and a new compact camera module. All of these components will be up to 70% more expensive than the ones found in the outgoing iPhone 13 Pro models. Kuo believes Sony will supply the CMOS sensors while Minebea and Largan will take care of the VCM. LG is touted as the main compact camera module supplier.
In addition to the new ultrawide module, the iPhone 14 Pro series is also expected to bring a 48MP primary camera that uses 4-in-1 pixel binning. The resulting images should offer more color-accurate shots and better low-light performance. The front cameras on both 14 Pro models will receive a big update with autofocus and a bright f/1.9 aperture.
