We already heard those rumors about 4k with slow motion, so 120 frames. A second even 240 frames, a second in 4k, which honestly is very insane. None of us are really going to use that too much, though, but still a very, very significant upgrade that's really down to the processor, though, but now we get some really cool hardware news about the actual cameras and the lenses in particular. This is again from Inchicore. So a renowned analyst telling us that the iPhone 12 phones are going to be upgrading the lenses and when it comes to photography and videography lenses, are super super important in the smartphone world. When we talk about specs it's, really about the size of the sensor, and certainly the megapixels of that sensor, the megapixel race is on at least in the Android world. 48. 64. 108 megapixels. One of the reasons for this is because megapixels are absolute and so it's a very easy thing to say that one phone is better or has more than the other 64 versus 48 people. Just assume that a sixty four megapixel sensor is better and in some regards it is it's higher resolution, and that has a lot of advantages, but certainly megapixels are just one tiny part of photography and how an image looks overall. Clarity of the image dynamic range sharpness. All of these things actually are also influenced by it. The lens in smartphones, though this is kind of not the same, because of just how tiny all of the lenses are.
Something that has become a trend, though, is the move to more complex lens arrangements and we've. Seen this come in a couple of different phones already, it looks like the iPhone is going to move forward as well, so an eight piece lens setup on the iPhone 12 series. This is different to the iPhone 11 Pro, for example, which has a six piece lens. We'Ve already seen a few Android phones use piece lenses and actually the chamois phone that topped the DxO mark rankings. Even though it was a mid range phone used, an eight piece lens overall, a more expensive, more complex, lens setup will just mean better looking images. So, better clarity, better colors and dynamic range even can all be improved with a more expensive lens. Also we do get those rumors of no charger in the box and they've been out for a little while now it looks like we may have got some confirmation. I guess you could call it from Apple, but actually send out a questionnaire to some users in Brazil asking them yeah. What do you do with your charger? This would maybe suggest that they haven't finalized the decision yet, but it seems quite likely that they are going to move forward with this anyway and finally, in your Apple news, we do get this post from nos young and he has compiled a list of current and Upcoming high refresh rate smartphones, this list has gone through a few changes already.
The initial list was just inaccurate. To be honest, this list has also had to be edited, but he actually is adamant that 120 Hertz hasn't been confirmed for the iPhone 12 series, but not only that it's just not coming this year and will be coming next year, that's. What he's saying from his sources other industry sources are telling us that all the 120 Hertz Hardware has gone through all of the testing procedures and come out with flying colors. So definitely a mixture of opinions on this 120 Hertz, whether it is actually coming or not. Why would Apple test it and go through the testing and pass the testing if it's not actually coming? It seemed really strange, but I guess we'll have to still wait a few more weeks until the iPhones are in production to find out 100 for sure. Let me know: is the 120 Hertz thing in the iPhone 12 a deal breaker for you? Would you still rush to get the phone if it didn't have it or do you think no it's a pro phone? It should definitely have it.
