The iPhone 14 is not even out yet, but we are already seeing reports about next year’s iPhone 15 series, so… how does that work?
Well, it does because the iPhone 15, and specifically the Pro models, are expected to get one big camera upgrade in the form of a brand new periscope zoom lens. And whenever there is an upgrade of that magnitude, that means setting up processes with manufacturers and suppliers, and these things seem to leak out.
If such a deal goes through, Lante could receive orders for as much as 100 million units of the crucial component.
Rumors say it will be a 5X zoom lens
The same analyst, Jeff Pu, initially predicted that Apple is to adopt a 10X periscope zoom lens on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, but later changed his expectations that it will be a 5X zoom lens, something that another famous industry insider, Ming Chi Kuo , also agrees with.
In this latest note, Pu mentions that it is not yet clear whether it will be just the Pro Max, or if the smaller iPhone 15 Pro might also get this new periscope lens.
