iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 PlusWith the launch of the Camera Performance ContestFrom the age of pixel competition,CMOS image sensorFacing the era of competition for excellence in photographic image quality by improving itThis is according to research firm TrendForce.

TrendForce will be installed on iPhone15 and iPhone15 PlusSony’s dual-transistor layer stacked CMOS image sensor is quite an achievementHe said.

■ The point of this article can be understood in 3 lines
1. A research company predicts that the era of competing for the number of pixels in the smartphone camera performance competition will gradually end.
2. Instead, the research firm believes we are heading into an era of competition for superior photographic image quality with improved CMOS image sensors.
3. The Sony transistor stacked pixel CMOS image sensor installed in iPhone15 and iPhone15 Plus will play an important role.

He pointed out that the general public does not know the difference between 108 million pixels and 200 million pixels

Regarding the reason why smartphone camera performance competition is not expected to last for a long time, TrendForce says that for the general public, images captured with a 108 million-pixel image sensor and images with 200 million pixels indicate that you cannot tell the difference between Pictures taken by the sensor.

TrendForce notes that what will become more important in the future rather than the number of pixels is improving image quality by optimizing the light-receiving element and the CMOS image sensor architecture.

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 PlusIt is expected to be equipped with Sony’s dual-layer stacked transistor CMOS image sensor, and TrendForce expects it to achieve unprecedented photographic quality.

On the other hand, it is rumored that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be equipped with a high-magnification telephoto camera using a periscope lens, and the telephoto optical zoom is expected to be 5x or 6x.

Concerns about a short supply of CMOS image sensors for the iPhone 15 series

The concern is that the supply of CMOS image sensors for iPhone15, iPhone15 Plus, and iPhone15 Pro Max has been repeatedly reported to be insufficient.

And since these reports do not subside even at the time of this announcement, initial shipments of iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 Pro Max may be low.
