A new rumor indicates that Apple may take an unconventional path regarding the iPhone 12 cameras. Instead of raising the megapixel count to reinforce improvements over the predecessor model, something that most c0mpnaies do, Apple is likely aiming at keeping the main 12-megapixel resolution while increasing the sensor size. Leaker Komiya with a proven track record for accurate scoops shared this information on his Twitter profile. Also Read - Supposed Apple iPhone 12 pre-production unit spotted on video
As per PhoneArena, if the rumor is real, the next year’s iPhone 12 successor may hit the market with a 48-megapixel primary camera instead of this year. A larger sensor translates into a camera with better performance in low light conditions. It will also allow us to capture images with more details and less noise. Unofficial information states that the Pro and Pro Max models of the iPhone 12-series will come with a triple camera system and a LiDAR scanner. A feature that would be absent in the base and Max versions. The last two are likely to sport a dual-camera system. Also Read - Apple accidentally allowed popular malware to run on MacOS
