For the iPhone 12 Pro Max Apple is reportedly thinking about a new system for optical image stabilization. Here's how it should work
Coming next fall, barring any change of plans due to the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak in most of the world, the iPhone 12 could pave the way for a real revolution in the photo compartment of the applephone, unveiling a new technology related to image stabilization. If so, we could talk about one of the most important updates of recent years made by the house of Cupertino.
The latest rumors spread on the network are all focused on the introduction of a new camera that will allow you to get much better images than those taken so far. Already the iPhone 11 Pro has led to a major change, with the inclusion of the square bumper with three 12-megapixel sensors inside.
iPhone 12 Pro: image stabilization
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst of the Apple brand, the new iPhone 12 Pro will introduce a new image stabilization system. This new technology is called "sensor shift image stabilization" and allows the camera sensor to "float" while keeping the image stable when the smartphone held in the hand is not completely still. A new technology characterized by sharper details and that could be applied to Ultra Wide sensors on upcoming iPhones, starting with models with 6.7-inch displays.
Currently, iPhone 11 Pros feature optical image stabilization applied to photos and videos, but only when using the ultra-wide angle lens. Sensor shifting technology would allow image stabilization to be applied to the camera sensor regardless of the lens used. The "floating" sensor allows for better photographs by reducing image blur. It also allows you to take photos in low light conditions with excellent results, even when the subject is closer to the camera.
On which smartphone will it be available
The new image stabilization technology, again according to Ming-Chi Kuo, could be the flagship iPhone 12 Pro Max before being offered "as standard" on two or three other next-generation iPhone models starting in 2021. An operation aimed at differentiating the offerings of the Cupertino-based company, making the next iPhone 12 Pro Max the premium phone of the Californian brand with features clearly different from the Pro version and other devices of the bitten apple.
