iPhone 15 has just been launched by Apple, but there are already some rumors about next year’s iPhone floating around the web. This time, analyst Jeff Pu from Haitong International Securities has revealed some details about what to expect from the iPhone 16 Pro. According to Pu, the device will be equipped with a faster 5G modem, Wi-Fi 7, and a new ultra-wide lens on the rear.
iPhone 16 predictions
In a note to investors seen by 9to5Mac, Pu discusses his predictions for the iPhone 16 lineup based on his sources in Apple’s supply chain. When it comes to the display, the new iPhones will be 0.2 inches larger compared to the current 6.1- and 6.7-inch sizes. Analysts Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young had already reported on the iPhone 16 coming in larger sizes.
With the regular iPhone 16 Pro coming in a larger size, Apple will be able to put the same tetra-prism lens for 5x optical zoom introduced with the iPhone 15 Pro Max on the smaller Pro model. Jeff Pu reiterates that both the Pro and Pro Max models will have a 12-megapixel tetra-prism lens for better zoom.
The report also indicates that Apple plans to upgrade the Pro models with a newer ultra-wide lens, a component that has remained pretty much untouched since the iPhone 13 Pro. The ultra-wide lens on the iPhone 16 Pro models will get a new 48-megapixel sensor, a huge leap from the current 12-megapixel sensor.
Faster Wi-Fi and 5G
The iPhone 16 Pro will be equipped with the new A18 Pro chip, also built using the 3-nanometer process – the same as the A17 Pro. The new chip will keep the 8 GB of RAM of the current iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max.
However, when it comes to connectivity, the iPhone 16 Pro will be able to reach even faster speeds, whether on Wi-Fi or 5G. Pu speculates that the new iPhones will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X75 modem, which achieves 5G download…
