In the recent past, most of the discussion about the upcoming
iPhone 12 has centered on its alleged
battery size. A big part of the iPhone’s appeal is its camera and if a new leak is to go by,
Apple has no plans to increase the megapixel count this year.
This refutes an earlier report that claimed the highest-end model would jump to a
64MP sensor. Per tipster
Komiya, this wouldn’t happen even next year. Instead, the
iPhone 12’s successor will likely ship with a 48MP primary camera. It’s too soon to comment on next year’s model and a lot can change between now and then.
So, coming back to the iPhone 12, the leaker claims it will have bigger 12MP sensors. This would allow the phone to capture pictures with more light, more details, and less noise. It will also result in better low-light performance.

The Pro models are also expected to boast
improved Smart HDR functionality for better low-light photography. They are also expected to feature 3x optical zoom, which will be an improvement over iPhone 11’s 2x zoom capability.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will likely come with a dual-camera system and no LiDAR scanner.
Autofocus is also tipped to improve greatly and the beefier models could also get a
new image stabilization technology to counteract camera shake. All four models will reportedly have a 7-element wide-angle lens, which should result in less distortion and fewer aberrations.
And, of course, we can also expect better processing because of the new and improved A14 Bionic.
