The iPhone 15 Pro Max is one of the most anticipated products of 2023, and rumors about its capabilities and appearance have been swirling for months. The periscope zoom camera is one of the most intriguing features said to be featured in the device.
Further information on the speculated periscope camera lens for the iPhone 15 Pro Max has been claimed by reliable leaker and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has named components producer Largan as the company Apple hired to build them.
iPhone 15 Pro Max Leaked Periscope Camera
The periscope zoom camera has previously been utilized in cellphones but is not currently accessible in any iPhone model. The device works by bending light and extending the focal length of the camera lens with a prism, allowing for far larger zoom capabilities without affecting image quality.
Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra include 5x and 10x optical zoom lenses. In the case of the iPhone, we’ve been expecting that the first-generation periscope lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature 5x or 6x zoom, which, although not as excellent as what Samsung provides, trumps the current 3x magnification of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. But, one report cites a different supplier as Apple’s periscope camera source, so things may have altered if Apple is truly going with Largan.
According to Kuo, Apple reportedly pays Largan $4 per telephoto lens, which is less than the market pricing of $4.50 – $5, implying that Largan will not benefit from selling them. This is surely a nice bargain for Apple, though presumably, Largan was more than pleased to grant the discount in exchange for supplying parts for what will undoubtedly be one of the year’s best-selling phones.
Already income for these firms is dropping due to huge inventory but low demand. Moreover, as Kuo forecasts, profits would fall much worse if Apple switches to competitive components producer Genius for future generations of periscope lenses.
Regrettably, the periscope lens will be missing from the iPhone 15 Pro, the smaller high-end variant. According to Kuo, both the Pro and Pro Max models will not have similar or identical periscope lens systems until the iPhone 16 series. For consumers who like compact handsets, this might be the decisive factor in whether they update this year or wait another year.
I believe the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max will continue to receive significant enhancements and new capabilities. Both might have USB-C connections for the first time, as well as a titanium design with perhaps solid-state buttons, although at a higher starting price, which we already discussed earlier.
The periscope zoom camera included in the iPhone 15 Pro Max will surely be a big selling feature for Apple. With more people relying on their smartphones as their primary camera, being able to snap high-quality, detailed photographs from a distance will be a game changer. It will also be fascinating to observe how Apple’s competitors react to this new technology and whether periscope zoom cameras will be included in their next products.
Finally, the iPhone 15 Pro Max periscope zoom camera leak is excellent news for everyone interested in smartphone photography. The device’s 5x optical zoom and ultra-wide-angle lens are supposed to make it a powerhouse for taking a variety of photographs. While we’ll have to wait for the official release to confirm these features, the leak has created a lot of hype and excitement for what’s to come.
