The upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models may get upgraded to a 48 MP main camera with larger pixel sizes, according to a TrendForce report. It is possible that Apple may use downscaling algorithms to give a final 12 MP output from the raw 48 MP sensor data. While the 48 MP main camera will be limited to the iPhone 14 Pro models, the entire iPhone 14 lineup is slated to get 8K video recording.

For long, the iPhone series has offered only 12 MP sensors even in the Pro and Pro Max variants while Android flagships are all set to enter the 200 MP territory later this year. Of course, megapixel counts alone are not a measure of image quality but having higher numbers doesn't hurt. It looks like iPhone users may finally get to flaunt higher resolution cameras starting with this year's iPhone 14 Pro.

As per a TrendForce report, Apple is expected to use 48 MP sensors in the iPhone 14 Pro series slated to arrive later this year. The same was previously alluded to by famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo back in 2021. Kuo said back then that the 48 MP spec is exclusively reserved for the Pro models and that too for the main wide camera. 

While the iPhone 14 Pro's sensor may capture a 48 MP image the possibility of Apple using downsizing algorithms to generate an effective 12 MP output cannot be ruled out. That being said, we can expect to see higher pixel sizes up to 2.5 microns with the iPhone 14 series. Also, all iPhone 14 models are expected to get 8K video recording support for the first time.

Apart from the upgraded cameras, the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro series will also substitute the notch with a pill-shaped punch hole and reflective yet invisible Face ID sensors beneath the display. The normal iPhone 14 is expected to sport the conventional notch, however. If the rumor mills are to be believed, we may also not see the iPhone 14 Mini this year.
