A 48 million pixel primary camera is expected to be introduced to the iPhone 14 Pro line that Apple will release this year, according to TrendForce.
The research group says that, although camera shipment growth has slowed, camera resolution continues to improve. Taking primary cameras as an example, the current mainstream design is 13-48 million pixels, accounting for more than 50% of cameras in 2021. In second place are products featuring 49-64 million pixels which accounted for more than 20% of cameras last year with penetration rate expected to increase to 23% in 2022.
The third highest portion is 12 million pixel products, currently dominated by the iPhone and Samsung’s flagship series, However, the introduction of a 48 million pixel camera in the iPhone 14 Pro will reduce 12 million pixel products to a 15% share in 2022.
