Unlike the iPhone 14 and 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max should offer a number of new features compared to current models. In addition to the new notchless design, we will find most of the changes, especially at the photo level.
As a matter of fact, it is already expected that the Pro models will be equipped with a new 48 MP main photo sensor that will replace the 12 MP sensor. This new sensor will be much larger than its predecessor becauseWill measure 1/1.3 inch. This is equivalent to a 21% larger sensor surface More than the 1/1.65-inch sensor found in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. He wouldn’t be the only one to see its size increase, as the ultra-wide-angle sensor would also be different.
iPhone 14 Pro will take better ultra-wide-angle shots at night
According to information from Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will be equipped with a new ultra-wide-angle sensor that is much larger than the iPhone 13 Pro. It will offer 1.4 micron individual pixelsCompared to only 1.0 micron for the current ultra wide angle sensor.
This increase in sensor size means that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max take better shots in low light conditions, because a larger sensor allows more light to be collected. Whether wide angle or ultra wide angle, The new iPhone 14 Pro will therefore perform much better at night.
Such a sensor would necessarily cost Apple more. Kuo believes the US manufacturer will upgrade the iPhone 14 Pro’s CMOS image sensor, voice coil motor and compact camera module. The analyst points to this these three new components could be 70%, 45% and 40% more expensive, respectively, than those of the iPhone 13.
Therefore, if Apple wants to maintain its margin, it will have no choice but to increase the cost of its smartphones by at least 100 euros this year. Due to this price increase, the iPhone 14 Pro Max could cost close to 2000 Euros in a 1TB version and therefore It became the most expensive iPhone in history.
