Apple would try to improve the zoom of its phones and would count on it from 2022. According to Digitimes, Apple is working with a Korean group to offer an optical zoom x10 on its future iPhones.
The name of the Korean partner is not known, but can we expect it to be Samsung? It is a possibility. After all, Apple is already working with Samsung for OLED screens for its iPhones.
Ming Chi Kuo already spoke about this x10 optical zoom lens for the iPhone of 2022. The analyst, who has good information, mentioned a collaboration with Semco this summer. And Semco is none other than the name of Samsung Electro-Mechanics.
As it stands, the iPhone offers 12 x1 optical zoom. It’s x2 on the iPhone 12 Pro and x2.5 on the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Going to x10 would therefore make a pretty remarkable difference. But it will take a little patience to really take advantage of it. To see if Apple will change anything with the iPhone 13 in 2021. For example, will we have an x5 optical zoom? What have the equivalent of a transition. We will have to wait in the coming months to get more concrete rumors on this topic.
If we are to believe the first sounds of corridors, the iPhone 13 should adopt the design of the iPhone 12. The Pro models would at least be entitled to a 120 Hz screen.
