iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max Camera Bump to be Bigger than its Predecessor
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be coming with a bigger camera bump in comparison to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max due to the iPhone 14 Pro coming with a 48-megapixel wide camera sensor.
This report is coming just a few days after the previous leaked design schematics said to be of the upcoming iPhones 14 series suggested a slightly taller and thicker build compared to device predecessors. It was also suggested the iPhone 14 Pro Max will be a bit shorter, but thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst gave detailed information about the camera bulge of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. He tweeted "main reason for the larger and more prominent rear-camera bump of the [iPhone] 14 Pro/ Pro Max is upgrading the wide camera to 48MP (vs. 13 Pro/ Pro Max's 12-megapixel camera)." He added that the "diagonal length of 48-megapixel CIS will increase by 25-35 percent, and the height of 48-megapixel sensor's 7P lens will increase by 5-10 percent."
The above report claims that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max thickness will be increased to 7.85mm as compared to 7.65mm of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. In addition, the bulge is said to be 12.02mm thick which is more than the current generation of Apple handsets.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are also expected to neglect the display notch by replacing it with a pill-shaped hole punch cutout. The smartphones are also tipped to be powered by the next-generation Apple A16 Bionic chip.
