Apple’s 2021 iPhone: 48MP main camera?
TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has indicated that Apple’s 2H21 iPhone line up will consist of two 6.1” iPhones and two 6.7” iPhones. The premium model is expected to gain a new 48MP main camera, which can output 12MP images with a resulting large 2.5μm pixel pitch. Kuo predicts that the new iPhone will retain the 12MP resolution, but bring pixel size to 2.0μm thanks to a slight increase in sensor size. (CN Beta, GSM Arena, TF Securities)
TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes Apple is planning to introduce a Face ID system that sits beneath iPhone’s display, potentially nixing the TrueDepth “notch” for a truly full-display experience. He believes that an “under-display Face ID” system will debut on iPhone in 2023. (Apple Insider, TF Securities)
