According to a leaked image, the iPhone 12 Pro may update the layout of its rear camera, adding lidar to the iPhone’s rear camera to reposition the lens inside the square camera bulge, according to a leaked image. The iPhone 12 is expected to have some camera adjustments, including a larger sensor and some form of depth mapping technology.
If the image leak is credible, Apple may have decided to use lidar as part of the updated camera module.
In a tweet posted by the @choco_bit, a picture shared shows the back cover of the iPhone. Three of the camera lenses can be seen as normal, but the fourth is different, with the tweet describing it as a lidar for the “iPhone 12 Pro” and “iPhone 12 Pro Max” models.
Lidar is a major new feature of the upgraded iPad Pro, a sensor that provides combat-based depth mapping time for the tablet’s rear camera components. This will enable the iPad Pro to be better used in augmented reality applications and computer vision.
In addition, a significant change in this camera image is a change in the layout of the camera module elements. The current iPhone camera module uses three lenses, but it’s two in the middle of the right, the new iPhone moves the right camera to a level with the upper left camera, and the new lidar sensor is flush with the lower left camera.
The Twitter account, which is allegedly run by Apple’s former licensing service partner, has leaked information about Apple products in the past, suggesting that the image may be authentic. It is not clear where the photo came from, most likely from an internal design document or service manual. However, the leaked information may differ from Apple’s products to be released later this year.
