Apple’s iPhone 16 Pro Max, expected to launch in the fall of 2024, will offer unparalleled camera performance with a larger and more advanced main camera sensor. The device is rumored to be an “image flagship” that will excel in photography and videography.
The leaker, who uses the name “Digital Chat Station,” has a history of revealing accurate information about the camera specifications of upcoming iPhone models. In their latest post, they claim that the iPhone 16 Pro Max will feature a custom-made 48-megapixel Sony IMX903 sensor with a 1/1.14-inch size, which is 12% larger than the sensor on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
The bigger sensor size will enable the iPhone 16 Pro Max to capture more light and produce sharper images with less noise and better dynamic range. The sensor will also have a stacked design, which improves the speed and efficiency of data processing, a 14-bit ADC, which converts analog signals to digital data with high precision, and a DCG, which adjusts the gain of each pixel to optimize the exposure and contrast.
The leaker also shared some other details about the design and features of the next-generation high-end iPhones. They said that the devices will have a slightly more curved screen than the iPhone 15 models and that they will retain the same thickness as their predecessors. They also confirmed that the iPhone 16 Pro Max will be the only model to have the 48-megapixel sensor, while the iPhone 16 Pro and the iPhone 16 will have a smaller 48-megapixel sensor, similar to the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus.
In addition, the leaker revealed that the iPhone 16 Pro models will feature a periscope telephoto camera, allowing for higher optical zoom without compromising the image quality. The periscope camera will use a prism to refract light and extend the focal length, resulting in clearer and more detailed shots of distant objects. The iPhone 15 Pro models currently offer a 3x optical zoom, but the iPhone 16 Pro models could potentially offer up to 10x optical zoom.
The leaker has previously disclosed accurate information about the iPhone 15 and iPhone 12 camera features, so their claims are likely to be credible. However, as with any rumor, it is advisable to take them with a grain of salt until they are officially confirmed by Apple. The iPhone 16 lineup is expected to launch in the fall of 2024.
