Rumors are saying that Apple might work with Samsung, its biggest rival. If this is true, the powerful collaboration is expected to work an iPhone's next big camera upgrade.
However, Apple hasn't released any update yet of the rumored technology that will be available on its iPhone 13. As of the moment, the iPhone is one of the best smartphones that provides great camera features that you can fit in your pocket.
Samsung Galaxy S20 or Note 20, Pixel 5, and the latest Huawei flagships are not falling behind since they also provide high-end photography features. As of the moment, Apple is looking to change the game since it is buying periscope cameras that would significantly increase iPhone's zoom capabilities.
What is a periscope camera?
According to BGR's latest report, the periscope camera allows smartphone manufacturers to enhance the optical zoom in their flagships without increasing the device's thickness. The lenses and sensor will be in a periscope setup.
This means that the camera components will be placed horizontally. Once the periscope camera is used, the light will bounce at 90 degrees through a prism.
The distance between the sensor and the lenses is increased without making the phone bulky. Optical zoom is also improved, giving the user a better camera phone experience.
Periscope camera was first used by Oppo. As of the moment, many companies are already using this technology, including Huawei and Samsung.
iPhone 13 might give Galaxy S21 some trouble
Toms Guide reported that iPhone 13 is reportedly receiving a folded optical zoom feature, which could mean trouble for Galaxy S21. The new rumor stated that Apple is planning to include a folded periscope camera in its upcoming iPhone product.
This means that iPhone 13 might bring enhanced quality in zoomed photos! The new feature would really excite mobile photographers, especially those who are focused on macro-photography.
Currently, Apple is still looking for suppliers of folded cameras and Samsung might be one of them.
