iPhone 15 Pro Max’s periscope telephoto camera continues to trend
The coming iPhone 15 series may have Apple’s first mobile device ever to be fitted with a periscope telephoto lens. In fact, there have been a series of reports to this effect. The latest of them is coming from a recent MacRumors report. On Android phones, periscope telephoto lenses are already popular, but they have never been used on an iPhone. According to rumours, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will succeed this iconic Apple product. From the reports so far, the Pro Max model will be the only model in the series to use this sensor.
The periscope telephoto lens typically takes up a sizeable portion of the camera’s interior space. Apple’s desire to use this sensor on only the Pro Max model may mean that this device will come with a corresponding larger size.
In addition, this new periscope telephoto camera may give the iPhone 15 Pro Max a solid 6x optical zoom capacity. This will be a huge upgrade over the 3x optical zoom on the iPhone 14 Pro series. According to rumours, Apple may pick between Largan Precision and Genius Electronic Optical as suppliers. From the info of the iPhone 15 series that has been made public so far, Apple will be using a periscope long focus lens. It will also dump the lighting interface, and make a number of other “decisions that violate the ancestral precepts” on this generation of flagships.
Apple is actually becoming like an Android phone in some ways . We cant help but wonder when Apple will go to one-inch CMOS. The next iPhone 15 series will still have a lot of surprises in store for us.
