Bringing higher megapixels to smartphone cameras doesn't mean that they will perform better compared to those with fewer megapixels. However, we'd still like to see those new smartphone cameras with higher megapixels being launched as they always sound impressive. If you're one of those who anticipates the new Apple iPhone 12 series' cameras to arrive with higher megapixels, you might be disappointed after reading this.
Earlier, it was reported that the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max would come with a 64MP sensor and a 5x optical zoom. Unfortunately, a reputable insider has stated that all of the devices from the iPhone 12 series will only get cameras that are up to 12MP to clear the previous rumours. According to the source, the tech giant doesn't have plans to upgrade their cameras with higher megapixels yet. It is said that the iPhone 13 series that is going to happen next year will only get a 48MP sensor.
Although the iPhone 12 series are not bringing higher megapixels, their cameras are still expected to feature some impressive upgrades. It is rumoured that all four models will get a new 7-lens wide-angle lens that can reduce image distortion. They might also receive a new image stabilization technology. To recap, the iPhone 12 series is bringing the vanilla iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max might have two 12MP sensors in the main camera module, while the Pro ones could have three.
