The iPhone 15 Pro Max has a periscope camera with sixfold optical zoom.
According to a source, the module will be included in the Apple flagship for the model year 2023. The camera will feature a 1/3-inch optical format sensor measuring 12 megapixels, with optical matrix stabilization. F / 2.82 will be the aperture.
A number of smartphones have a periscope-telephoto lens that provides 5x optical zoom. However, they don’t come with an extra telephoto lens that offers a smaller optical zoom. The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has a double camera, a triple zoom and tenx optical zoom. It is not yet clear which direction Apple will take.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst, said that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be used for the periscope Telephoto. However, in the 2024-line, such a camera will be available on both iPhone Pro models.
