There are still a couple of months to go before the presentation of the iPhone 12 family of smartphones and the rumors surrounding Cupertino's next smartphones show no sign of diminishing, far from it. The latest rumors come from the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and from his latest report published for TF Securities.
The weight of the discussion revolves around some new partnerships that Apple – according to Kuo – would have signed with two companies active in the field of optics supply for the photographic modules of its upcoming smartphones. There is talk of Semco and Sunny Optical, respectively the best companies in South Korea and China specialized in this field.
But how do these market movements will they be reflected on the next iPhone lineup? According to Kuo, the iPhone 12 (a specific model is not specified, therefore it is probable that we are talking about all the variants) will adopt a new mechanism developed by Semco that allows to significantly improve the performance during focusing, thanks to the technologies that make it more effective than the traditional spring mechanism.
Semco will always be the protagonist of a further evolutionary step for the photographic sector of the iPhone, but in this second case we are talking about the models that will come on the market in 2022, therefore nothing immediate. This will happen through the integration of the periscopic module that will allow to improve the optical zoom of the next top of the range from Apple, in a similar way to what we have already seen on different Android terminals.
Recall that the 2020 models should be 4, divided into 2 distinct series. The cheaper one will host iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Maxrespectively equipped with 5.4 "and 6.1" OLED panels. The Pro series, however, will see the presence of iPhone 12 Pro, with 6.1 "OLED screen, and Pro Max, the latter ready to set new records (at Apple) thanks to its 6.7 display ". The Pro models will be distinguished by the presence of 6GB of RAM and a LiDAR sensor for 3D scanning of the environment.
The smallest TOP of the range from Apple? Apple iPhone SE, on offer today from Mobzilla for 417 euros or from Unieuro for 499 euros.
