iPhone 16 Pro: larger screen and periscope camera to reign in the high-end
The iPhone 16 Pro could arrive with great news in the cameras

One of the best novelties that will arrive with the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max camera this year will be reserved exclusively for the largest model. However, the best analyst in the industry assures that Next year the iPhone 16 Pro will include this important improvement of the camera.

Ming-Chi Kuo recently reported that he iPhone 16 Pro that Apple will launch in 2024 will incorporate a periscope camera to get a much more powerful zoom. And also, has confirmed that it will have a larger screen. It was already rumored that the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max were going to have substantially larger screens and now it seems to be confirmed.

The screen size of the iPhone 16 Pro will be slightly larger than the 6.1-inch iPhone 14/15 Pro, allowing the iPhone 16 Pro to be equipped with a periscope camera thanks to a larger internal space.

Periscope cameras allow up to 10x optical zoom in the small space that smartphones have. The trick to achieve this is that the sensor is not really zooming outBecause otherwise the thickness of the device would be enormous, these cameras are located along the length of the device and have a 90 degree angled mirror.

This is a periscope camera, it takes up a lot of space inside the device

For that reason, a lot of internal space is needed in a smartphone to be able to include this type of periscope lens. The competition on Android has been using them for a while, but we only see them on larger smartphones. Never in a smartphone with a screen as moderate as that of the normal iPhone Pro.

This is undoubtedly very good news. This year, the camera system of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is identical and that is one of the bases of success, offering the same capabilities in two smartphones of different sizes. Something that very few brands do.

However, with the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max this will change since only the iPhone 15 Pro Max would have this periscope camera to make a better zoom. The good thing is that it will not be a definitive difference and Apple will correct it next year by including this sensor in the small model of the Pro as well.
