There will be significant upgrades in the selfie department such as an auto-focus feature. The previous selfie cameras had just fixed focus, but Apple decided to improve this feature. The company is reportedly looking to buy high-end cameras and is looking at LG Innotek for the supply of these cameras alongside Sharp. Interestingly, this is the first time that the iPhone front-facing camera will come from a South-Korean company. That’s a major twist, after all, Apple has been sticking with low-end selfie cameras for years.
iPhone 14 selfie camera will bring major advancements
The report states that the LG Innotek was initially supposed to supply cameras for the iPhone 15. However, Apple has moved the schedule forward in a hurry. Apparently, the Cupertino-based company found some serious issues with the quality of Chinese cameras. These issues surfaced during the quality testing. As a result, the Chinese companies lost the orders, and LG Innotek was brought in as a replacement for the iPhone 14 series. Worth noting, however, that this currently stands as a rumor. So you need to digest the news with a pinch of salt.
Apart from the autofocus feature, the exact upgrades coming with the iPhone 14 series camera are unclear. However, the upgrades were enough to make the overall iPhone 14 front-camera price rise by around three times. The new iPhones are reportedly coming in September.
