Apple is expected to bring the iPhone 14 in September. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the new phones will have the biggest front-camera upgrade since the iPhone 11.
The selfie shooter wants autofocus and moves away from the FF solution for the first time in the company’s history. It also comes with a 6P lens and bright f / 1.9 aperture.
Switching to AF will improve the versatility of the front camper as people increasingly rely on the front-facing camera for both serious video calls and silly dances for social media. The main supplier of the lens will be Genius, while the CCM (CMOS camera module) will be manufactured by LG Innotek and Cowell.
The sensor will again be a product from Sony, Kuo said. There is no word on whether it will be different from the current 12MP modules from the Japanese manufacturer. But even without changing it, bringing an improved lens and proper autofocus sounds like a big improvement.
