Trusted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is back with another report for the 2020 iPhones. This time around, he declares that Apple will launch a high-end 6.7-inch iPhone 12 later this year including sensor-shift image stabilization. The report of Apple utilizing sensor-shift stabilization on its 2020 iPhone had first appeared in December in 2015.

Right now, Apple utilizes Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on its iPhones, though it is limited to the main and telephoto 12MP cam. With the use of sensor-shift innovation, Apple might expand it to the ultra-wide angle sensor as well. In OIS, the lens is moved around while the video camera sensor remains in location. In sensor-shift stabilization, the entire sensing unit will be moved around to make up for motion and shake.

Making use of sensor-shift stabilization would permit the ultra-wide angle sensor to keep its shutter open for slightly longer time causing much better photos, especially in low-light scenarios. It would likewise lead to smoother stabilization while recording videos.

The expert has likewise claimed that Apple will be bringing periscope lens to a minimum of one of the 2022 iPhone models. The business will be designing this lens with Taiwanese provider Genius Electronic Optical. This could allow the device to provide to 5x or 10x optical zoom as seen on the Huawei P30 Pro, Oppo Reno series, and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. Today, the iPhone 11 Pro series uses 2x optical zoom and approximately 10x digital zoom. For contrast, the Galaxy S20 Ultra provides 100X Area Zoom while the likes of the Huawei P30 Pro and Oppo Reno provide to 30x-50x hybrid zoom.

Our Take

Almost all major flagship Android smartphones are now offering periscope optical zoom with a reach of 5x to 10x. Apple would be a bit too late to the game if it winds up waiting up until 2022 to bring this technology to its iPhone lineup. A zoom reach of 3x to 5x works to have in a smartphone and Apple ought to want to include this feature in its 2021 iPhones.
