iPhone 14 Pro: a larger photo block because of the 48 megapixel sensor

The photo block of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be a little bigger, and this is explained by the wide-angle sensor which will go from 12 to 48 megapixels according to Ming-Chi Kuo.

Change for the photo block of the iPhone 14 Pro

The analyst, generally well informed, reacted to diagrams published a few days ago showing the dimensions of the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro. In particular, there is a change in the width of the photo block on the iPhone 14 Pro, which goes to 36.73 mm, against 35.01 mm on the iPhone 13 Pro. For the height, we go from 36.24 mm to 38.21 mm. And for the thickness, it’s 4.17 mm against 3.60 mm for the iPhone 13 Pro.

According to Kuo, the main reason for the increase in size of the rear camera block of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is due to the 48-megapixel sensor. He adds that the diagonal of the iPhone’s contact image sensor (CIS) should increase by 25% to 35% with the jump to 48 megapixels. Similarly, the height of the photo sensor would increase by 5% to 10%.

These new features in the photo block will obviously allow you to have better photos, but also to film in 8K. Such videos would be related to the future augmented reality and virtual reality headset from Apple, since it would have screens with high definition.
