Apple will now be compiling the new iPhone 12 which in a couple of months may be presented. Thus, some elements to be assembled begin to show where Cupertino’s company went to invest. According to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 12 will have a set of high-tech lenses from the company Largan.
The lenses and camera module seem to be an even bigger bet on the new iPhone. Photography and video are effectively on the agenda.
Camera of the new iPhone 12 will have premium lenses
Apple’s next “iPhone 12” will include “high-end” lens sets on the rear camera to improve image quality. According to information from the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Largan will provide Apple with premium camera lenses for smartphones, although Apple received the same components slightly earlier in the past two years.
Production was reportedly delayed for four to six weeks in the second half of this year. As such, this delay could mean that iPhone delivery drops between August and October.
Delay in delivery of lenses may point to new date for the iPhone
As can be read in Kuo’s information note, Kuo does not mention the reason for the delay. However, the causes can naturally be derived from the pandemic. Apple is still expected to announce iPhones in September, but rumors have said that some iPhone models may not be released before October or November.
Kuo’s last note does not specify what type of high-tech lens will be used on the iPhone 12, but in a previous note he stated that the 6.7-inch iPhone model will feature multiple improvements in the rear camera, including larger sensors that capture more light for better image quality.
Apple is expected to launch 6.7-inch and 6.1-inch high-end iPhones with triple-lens cameras, and 5.4 and 6.1-inch low-range iPhones with dual-lens cameras. Previously, Kuo said he expected the 6.1 and 5.4-inch iPhones to go into mass production in September, while mass production on the largest 6.7-inch iPhone will be delayed until October due to its more complicated design.
So, what in other years was expected in September, this year has already skidded until November. Of course, we are only in the realm of rumors.
