Exclusive ToF camera for two high-end models
According to the foreign website 9to5mac, they found some information about the new iPhone code-named "d5x" in the leaked iOS 14 system code, and said that it may be the iPhone 12 series this year, and the reason is that the code of the iPhone 11 series last year was "D4x". At the same time, in these new machines, only two high-end versions are equipped with ToF sensors, that is, the legendary iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
In other words, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which will debut this fall, will be a combination of wide-angle lens, ultra-wide lens, telephoto lens and ToF camera in terms of camera configuration. The introduction of the ToF sensor will bring a new AR experience to the high-end version of the new iPhone. To this end, Apple is developing a special AR application for the iOS 14 system, which is said to allow users to improve playability with AR technology.
Equipped with Sensor-Shift technology
Of course, it is no longer news that Apple will add a ToF sensor to the new iPhone that will be launched this fall. In the past, well-known analyst Guo Mingxuan said in the report submitted that the focus of the new iPhone ’s efforts is officially on 3D imaging and VR / AR applications It will also be equipped with ToF cameras for the two new iPhones. In addition, equipping rear cameras with ToF sensors is also a trend in the entire mobile phone industry. Brands including Samsung and Huawei are equipped with ToF cameras in many flagship products, but there has not been much innovation in applications.
In addition to the exclusive ToF sensor configuration, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will also add more advanced anti-shake components. According to a previous report from Taiwanese media Digitimes, Apple plans to use the new Sensor-Shift technology for the new 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch high-end iPhones in 2020 to enhance the camera's ability to capture dynamics. Its main feature is that when the anti-shake function is provided, it is not the lens but the sensor that moves, and the effect is better than the traditional mode.
Or support 120Hz refresh rate
It is worth mentioning that this year's new iPhone will also follow the current trend in the industry, adding the OLED display to the ProMotion adaptive refresh technology only available in the iPad Pro product line in the past, which can be refreshed at 60Hz and 120Hz. To switch between them. Therefore, you can use the higher refresh rate to get faster screen response speed and smoother image display, especially in games will have better performance.
However, there is still a long time before the official release of the new iPhone, and even the news burst out in the industry chain may not be the final design. However, it is basically certain that Apple will debut four new iPhones this fall, all supporting 5G network technology, and there will be two high-end versions to increase the ToF sensor to improve the quality of the camera and apply AR technology.
