While Samsung is boasting about its 108MP camera and 50x zoom in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Apple appears to be going in a different direction with the iPhone 12 series camera. A new report from Digitimes reveals that Apple is adopting 7P camera lenses for the iPhone 12 lineup.

The benefit of the 7P lens (7 optical elements) is that it improves image quality by increasing the light transmission rate. The current iPhone 11 Pro has a 5P lens for its ultrawide camera and a 6P lens for its wide and telephoto cameras. In addition, the source also says that the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max will feature a 1/1.9-inch 7P wide-angle lens that supports sensor-shift technology. Most of today’s cameras feature lens-based stabilization. But sensor-shift stabilization uses gyroscopes to detect motion in every direction.

Based on recent leaks, the 12MP sensors on the iPhone 12 devices are reportedly getting larger, which should let in more light. And the iPhone 12 Pro models are going to feature LiDAR sensors that should deliver better portraits while also improving auto-focus and low-light performance. The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max are rumored to feature just 2x or 3x optical zoom. Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 12 series on September 15. The upcoming event will be live-streamed from Apple Park and it will start at 10 am PDT.
