Rumors indicate that Apple is developing a new periscopic camera for mobile phones, with up to 10x optical zoom. The source explains that Apple would be collaborating with the South Korean giant Samsung, using its components to assemble the new system. This technology, however, is still in the refinement stage and, although it is already found in devices from other brands, it should not be released on the next iPhone.
The reason for the alleged decision by Apple is defined by the company’s commitment to delivering polished and flawless technologies, in addition to the high expectations of its consumers regarding its cameras. According to the rumor, Apple’s new periscopic camera should only arrive in 2022, with possibilities of delay to 2023.

Despite not being a technological innovation, the possible novelty is still quite promising. Periscopic camera sets are able to overcome the physical limitations of a small space to deliver a zoom previously only possible in traditional cameras with moving lenses. The supposed new 10x optical zoom would be an excellent improvement on the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s current zoom capability of just 2.5x.
The latest rumors continue a series of other news reporting Apple’s possible interest in updating the camera system, which began in July this year. The news still depends on confirmation from the company, but it has already created expectations among its fans.
