Certain leaktor Ice Universe, best known for its free content on Samsung, once again provides us with information about a future device. This time the information is with Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max (which could end up being called iPhone 15 Ultra).
According to the tipster, the dimensions of the high-end iPhone will be 159.86mm x 76.73mm x 8.25mm. For comparison, the measurements of the iPhone 14 Pro Max were 160.7mmx77.6mmx7.85mm.
Doing some quick math, the camera bulge looks like this year’s model is less prominent than the current model. Including the camera bump, the expected iPhone 15 Pro Max will be 11.84mm thick.
This means the camera bump has gone to 3.59mm on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, from 4.18mm on the 2022 model. So the iPhone 15 Pro Max will have a smaller bulge of 0.59mm. Also, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is rumored to be made of Titanium.
Not only that, it also looks like it will carry a periscope lens that will fold inside the phone, using prisms and mirrors to reflect light from the camera lens to the image sensor. It will be used to provide an optical zoom capability that is not usually available on a smartphone, due to the size of the device.
By placing the lens, the optical zoom offered by the iPhone could increase from 3x to 10x what the iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to offer. This also presents a more rounded appearance, with somewhat curved edges.
We are six months from the presentation of the iPhone 15 line, but the flow of information has not stopped since the beginning. There is also speculation that we will see the 12MP camera sensor upgraded to 48MP on the iPhone 14s 12MP, and both the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will have Dynamic Lens. Both models will carry next year’s 4nm A16 bionic processor.
iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max (or Ultra, we’ll see) will be equipped with the new 3nm A17 Bionic. The iPhone 15 line could be the only major group of phones to come out of this 2023, where we see chips built with 3nm technology.
Simply put, the smaller the processor used to make the chip, the smaller the size of the transistors it used. This allows the transistors to fit together, making the process more powerful and energy efficient.
For example, the A13 Bionic used in the 2019 iPhone 11 was made using a 7nm process and had 8.5 billion transistors. In 2022, the iPhone 14 Pro models were powered by the A16 Bionic, using a 4nm process that had nearly 16 billion transistors.
