A new report says that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 and iPhone Plus models will have smaller camera sensors compared to Pro models. This is despite a recent leak claiming that the two models will have a 48MP upgrade for their cameras.
The new claim comes from an account named Digital Chat Station on Weibo (via MacRumors). The account is known for sharing earlier accurate iPhone leaks, including the expected arrival of a periscope ultra-long telephoto camera in an unspecified iPhone 16 model. The account now has a new detail about the camera system of the handheld, focusing on the iPhone 15 line of Apple.
As the account notes, the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will indeed come with a 48MP camera and are expected to get a 27% larger sensor. It is a huge bump from the 12MP 1/1.9-inch in iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. However, it says these improvements won’t match the sensor size in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, ultimately underscoring that the standard models will stick to smaller stacked CIS.
It also says that the two iPhone 15 Pro models will continue having the 1/1.28-inch 48MP sensor found in the current iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. Yet, the account also claimed in May that this could improve in 2024, mentioning an expected move of Apple from 1/1.28-inch to 1/1.14-inch iPhone sensor size.
