As we mentioned a few days ago, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a hidden telephoto lens, but because the hidden telephoto system is more complex than traditional upright telephoto and takes up relatively more space inside, Apple has reoriented the lens.
The image below shows the camera layout of the iPhone 14 Pro. The top left lens is a 48-megapixel main shot, the top right lens is a 12-megapixel lens, and the bottom lens is a 12-megapixel ultra-wide Angle.On the iPhone 15 Pro Max, the position of the hidden telephoto and the ultra wide Angle has been switched, as you can imagine in your mind.
So what technology did Apple use to achieve the telephoto? It is understood that Apple has inserted a prism inside the phone that changes the route of light and folds when the light enters the camera,Enter the camera sensor. As a result, Apple placed the telephoto sensor laterally inside the body for a longer focal length.
With the Hidden telephoto technology, the iPhone 15 Pro Max can support 6x optical zoom. As the first iPhone to feature hidden telephoto, the image technology beats the iPhone 14 Pro Max's 3x optical zoom.
In other news, the iPhone 15 Pro Max has wire-brushed sides and a frosted back, which is thicker than the iPhone 14 Pro Max and has less bump on the rear camera. The charging port has been replaced by USB-C; The mute switch becomes a customizable action button, similar to the Action button on the Apple Watch Ultra.
The screen frame is significantly narrower and the screen ratio is higher. The iPhone 15 Pro Max will be powered by a new generation of A17 Bionic chips built on Taiwan Semiconductor's 3nm technology (N3), and will have an upgrade to 8GB of RAM.
If nothing else, the iPhone 15 will be back in September this year, and as the first iPhone to feature a latent telephoto, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will receive a lot of attention and challenges. It was recently revealed that the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to cost $20,000. Would you buy the top iPhone 15 for $20,000?
