In the past couple of months, we have seen numerous reports about the possible iPhone 12 camera setup. It is now time for some new information shared by none other than Ming-Ching Kuo, a well-known research analyst related to Apple's product lineup. His latest research notes claim that iPhone 12 series will feature high-end camera components supplied by Largan.
Kuo mentions that these components will help Apple deliver improved image quality. However, it is unclear exactly what makes these components "high-end" and exactly what kind of improvements should be expected. He further says that Apple will be seeing delays in the supply of these components that will run into weeks.
The exact delay is said to be around four to six weeks which is likely to be due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Apple usually receives these components somewhere between August and October but due to the delay, these will now arrive between September and November. This should have some effect on the launch of the iPhone 12 series models as well.
It is worth noting that Apple is still expected to announce all the four iPhone 12 models at the same event which will take place in September. But it is the actual availability of these models that is likely to differ. Some models will have hit the stores earlier than others which is something we have seen in the past as well.
