Although he iPhone 15 It has barely two months on the market worldwide and the iPhone 16 models will not be presented until September of the year 2024some details of what the cell phone would be like have already begun to be known. Manzana at least in one of the sections in which the company pays the most attention: camera of pictures.
According to the specialist Ming-Chi Kuohe iPhone 16 Pro and the iPhone 16 Pro Max would have built into their hardware designs a feature called “tetraprism telephoto”, which takes advantage of a technology that reduces the size of the camera lens without giving up the ability to apply an optical zoom with 5x capacity, higher than the current specifications of a camera in regular models and even the iPhone 15 Pro.
The tetraprism technology in the camera, for the moment, is only present for the Pro Max models of the iPhone 15, so its availability in the Pro version of the next Pro version of the cell phone Manzana It is a sign that Apple seeks to bring both models closer in technical characteristics at least in this section.
On the other hand, the information offered by the expert indicates that the incorporation of the new lens photographic The iPhone 16 Pro would not be the only improvement in the device, but it would also seek to increase the size of the iPhone 16 Pro from 6.1 inches to 6.3 inchesso that the internal system of the new camera can get into the cell phone.
In fact, Kuo maintains that from the beginning the size of the 6.1-inch model of the iPhone 15 Pro was the reason why the tetraprismatic lens could not be incorporated into this model, which limited its presence only to the iPhone 15 Pro Max Well, it has a 6.7-inch screen, which means more space to incorporate new features.
With “tetraprism optical telephoto” technology, the cell phone camera system can handle light four times better in a smaller space, which translates into more detailed photographs that can be cropped without losing quality.
Among the new features of the Apple cell phone is also the next set of A17 chips and A18 will use a new method called TSMC’s N3E process. This innovation represents an improved way of manufacturing chips, which could translate into even faster and smoother performance in iPhones. Although there might be some small concessions in terms of efficiency.
Additionally, while the iPhone 15 Pro models come with 8GB RAMrumors suggest that this amount will “leak down” to the base models of the iPhone 16. This would be good news for customers who want an iPhone that works more efficiently without having to invest in the more expensive variants.
Furthermore, the idea of haptic buttons instead of mechanical, it is also present in the new iPhone 16 models. These buttons would not actually be physical buttons, but rather panels that offer tactile feedback to simulate the sensation of the mechanical buttons traditional. A feature that could mark a significant change in the user experience.
Kuo had also indicated that these had initially been planned for the models of the iPhone 15, but its launch would have been postponed until the next generation. This raises the possibility that the iPhone 16 Pro models have this novelty.
Haptic feedback would offer users the feel of a physical button, but with the advantage of greater durability and possibly greater resistance to dust and water due to the absence of gaps where unwanted particles can infiltrate.
