The iPhone 15 camera spec rumors give a hint at how much better photos will be on the new Apple hardware. The cameras on the iPhone usually see marked improvements year after year and 2023 probably won’t be any different. Here’s what the rumored iPhone 15 camera specs are.
What are the iPhone 15 camera spec rumors?
The iPhone 15 camera specs are, according to a recent rumor from MacRumors, a 48-megapixel lens for the rear camera. The outlet also noted that it will use a three-stacked sensor that will help the phone capture more light, which should improve general photo quality and help fight against underexposure or overexposure. The native resolution for a 48-megapixel camera is 8064 is 6048 pixels.
The iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 both had 12-megapixel lenses. However, the iPhone 14 Pro had a 48-megapixel camera, meaning the iPhone 15 looks to be emulating that higher-tier model with its camera. 9to5Mac reported that he cameras will be thicker and will protrude out from the back of the phone. These chunky cameras have been corroborated by a TikTok video with alleged cases that leave ample room for the lenses.
There haven’t been any rumored specs about the front camera, though. The front camera on the iPhone 14, for comparison, was similar, but only very slightly less advanced than the one on the rear, indicating that the iPhone 15 will go down a similar route.
However, it seems like the cameras won’t be equal between the handful of models, which are likely given recent rumors and Apple’s track record. Analyst with TF International Securities Ming-Chi Kuo noted that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a periscope-like telephoto lens. Kuo explained that this with would include a 1/3-inch 12-megapixel lens with an f-stop of 2.8, sensor shift support, and optical zoom that magnifies up to six times.
This was corroborated by another well-known leaker, too. The aforementioned 9to5Mac report also noted that the lenses won’t stick out as much on the Pro Max because of the periscope lens.
