The iPhone 12 is receiving an outstanding upgrade to its video capacities, according to a new leak. The smartphone will probably get the enhance when it is released, but a delay in getting the new hardware to Apple assembly lines may suggest the release day will definitely get postponed again.
That feature is the capacity to record at 4K at 120fps or 240fps. The rumor comes from YouTuber EverythingApplePro, and it is based on details leaker Max Weinbach found in the beta of Apple’s newly-rolled out iOS 14. Confirmation from the leaker’s insider at Apple states that there are currently present in order to test them before the iPhone 12 is launched sometime in September this year.
Another report coming from AppleInsider, which has managed to get an investor note written by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, says that the smartphone will also get some big camera upgrade. Kuo is claiming that lens marker Largan will deal with shipments of ‘high-end’ lenses to the company in mid-July to be used in the rear-camera array on the iPhone 12.
Big Camera Changes
Previously, Kuo said that Apple planned to use 7-element lenses in the smartphone’s main camera module, an improvement from 6-part main and telephoto lenses, and a 5-part ultrawide lens in the iPhone 11 lineup. The additional lens element should offer better photo quality, reducing the image distortion that takes place as light passes through the lenses into the camera sensor.
However, whether this change will be applied to all iPhone 12 models or just the Pro versions is not clear.
Previous speculations have claimed other major changes for the iPhone 12 will be the addition of a LiDAR depth sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max, along with the capacity to record video at 240fps, allowed by a new A14 processor.
We could also expect some new screen options of 5.4, 6.1, and 6.7 inches, depending on the phone version. We could get OLED displays on all four models as well, 5G connectivity, and probably 120Hz screens on the two iPhone 12 versions. However, this last detail now seems to be more uncertain, based on recent speculations.
