On May 15th, Gizcoupon reported that according to a report from MacRumors, Hong Kong-based investment firm Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu stated that the upcoming Apple iPhone 15/Plus models, set to be released later this year, will feature a 48MP pixel camera.
In a research note, analyst Jeff Pu stated that the 48MP pixel lens on these models would utilize a new three-layer stacked sensor, which can capture more light to enhance image quality. However, based on recent supply chain investigations, analyst Jeff Pu believes that the stacked sensors may face yielding issues, potentially leading to production delays for the iPhone 15/Plus.
Apple first introduced the 48MP pixel camera lens on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max last year. It allows users to capture 48MP pixel ProRAW photos. They retain more details in the image file to provide greater editing flexibility.
According to analyst Jeff Pu’s report, due to “design issues,” the iPhone 15 Pro model will no longer feature a solid-state button. (Note: a button without mechanical moving parts, which can simulate button effects through haptic feedback and pressure sensitivity). However, the iPhone 15 Pro model will still feature a titanium frame, an upgraded A17 Bionic chip, and 8GB of memory. In addition, he reiterated that all four iPhone 15 models will feature USB-C ports.
