iPhone 14 Pro: the 48-megapixel photo sensor would be 21% larger

The 48 megapixel photo sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro is once again talking about it, this time with an emphasis on size. The information comes from Fishing 8, a Weibo account that regularly posts detailed camera information.

iPhone 13 Pro Photo Sensors

The photo sensor will impose itself more

The 48 megapixel photo sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro would be 21.2% larger than the main sensor of the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. Size-wise, it would be similar to Samsung’s GN1 sensor that Google uses with its Pixel 6.

The sensor would be a Sony model, like those found on the iPhone 13 Pro. Despite the change in pixel size, the iPhone 14 Pro would feature the same Dual Pixel Autofocus (DPAF) system, marketed by Apple as Focus Pixels, that the iPhone has offered since the iPhone 6 in 2014. It would also be possible to shoot videos in HDR and 16:9 with 60 frames per second, as is already the case today.

In addition, the pixels of the main photo sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro would be smaller, measuring 1.22 μm. By comparison, the size is 1.9µm for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Upon arrival, the iPhone 14 Pro will deliver higher definition images with finer details. But there is a risk of weaker performance in areas where there are not many lights and more noisy images depending on the situation.
