iPhone 14 Series to Get Major Front Camera Upgrades in Years, Claims Analyst

iPhone 14 and other new iPhones this year may get an autofocus front camera, a major upgrade for the selfie setup.


Apple is rumoured to launch the iPhone 14 series in September. The company might launch four new models, namely the iPhone 14, 14 Pro, 14 Pro Max and the new iPhone 14 Max. The Pro models are rumoured to get some major upgrades over the predecessor models. Some rumours suggest that the 14 Pro and Pro Max will come with a 48MP triple-camera setup. There are reports of the front camera getting an upgrade as well.

Now, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 14 series will come with support for auto-focus for the front camera. Let’s take a look at the iPhone 14 series specs, features and other details.

iPhone 14 Series Front Camera Upgrade

Apple is set to introduce some major upgrades to the iPhone 14 series front camera, which will now feature a 6P lens, according to a new leak. The company has launched its iPhone models with a 5P lens in the past. The P here stands for Plastic. This means that the front camera will have 6 plastic layers on top to reduce aberrations. Depending on the aperture of the lens, the front camera could also capture more light and click photos with better details. 

Kuo also revealed that the front camera will support auto-focus as opposed to fixed-focus. The front camera can then track the subject, lock focus and click sharper images compared to one with a fixed focus.

The analyst added that Apple will partner with LG Innotek other than Sony, Genius and Largan for various components related to the front camera.

The rear camera on the Pro models will come with major upgrades. The main camera will feature a 48MP sensor with OIS support, according to the leaked information. It will be 57 per cent larger than the iPhone 13 Pro’s sensor. The Pro models will also be able to shoot 8K videos. Apple will launch the devices with a 12MP ultrawide camera and a 12MP telephoto camera. The non-Pro models will get a 12MP dual-camera setup. 

The Pro models will also feature a hole punch and a pill-shaped cutout for the front camera. They will feature a 6.1-inch and a 6.7-inch 120Hz OLED display. The non-Pro models will continue to sport a wide notch for the Face ID sensors and the TrueDepth front camera. Apple will launch the iPhone 14 and 14 Max with a rebranded A15 chip, whereas the non-Pro models will get an A16 chip.
