One of the most important aspects for users when opting for one model or another is the camera. It is not for nothing that the creators of the phones are always improving the module with the lenses. The processor may help and digital computing may help to sharpen an image, but without the lenses, there is nothing to do. For this reason, Apple, like many others, prefers that third-party companies with experience in the sector take care of this step. Rumors indicate that Sony will be in charge of making the iPhone 15 an all-rounder even in the most difficult lighting conditions.
A new rumor about the iPhone 15, and that we have the 14 model almost fresh out of the oven, indicates that Sony will be in charge of mounting a new sensor in the iPhone camera with the aim of taking sharper and more precise photos in conditions of inadvisable light. So at least a new report from Nikkei says: “Sony Group will supply Apple with its latest state-of-the-art image sensor.” In this way we will have the best of Apple with the latest from Sony and if it is something similar to Sony Alpha cameras, I can assure you that it will be great. It will ensure that, in low light conditions, the photographs are taken as if nothing had happened.
This new image sensor from Sony approximately doubles the level of saturation signal at each pixel compared to conventional sensors. In other words, the sensors they can capture more light and reduce overexposure or underexposure in certain environments, allowing a smartphone camera to “clearly photograph a person’s face, even if the subject is standing against a strong backlight.” A true marvel. No wonder someone ventures to say that phones will supersede traditional cameras. Sony is using a semiconductor architecture that places photodiodes and transistors on separate layers, allowing for more photodiodes.
It is not clear if all iPhone 15 models will use the new sensor technology, or if Apple will limit it to the higher-end iPhone 15 “Pro” models.
