The Cupertino-based American multinational tech company, Apple is expected to unveil its iPhone 15 series smartphones this year in the month of September and it is reported that the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max smartphone, the high-end model of the series, is likely going to feature a periscope telephoto lens with 6x optical zoom.

Here’s more about it.

This new update comes from Digital Chat Station, a well-known tipster on the Chinese microblogging platform, Weibo who reported that the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max smartphone might arrive with a periscope telephoto lens with 6x optical zoom support. Months back reports started to arrive pointing to the possible chance for the iPhone 15 Pro Max model to support a periscope telephoto lens with 5x or 6x optical zoom support and it is following this report that Digital Chat Station shared the latest update.

When we compare the expected camera module with the previous iPhone 14 Pro Max smartphones, the previous iPhone had a triple camera setup with a 48MP main camera, 12MP telephoto camera, and a 12MP ultrawide camera. MacRumors had suggested that in order to incorporate the periscope telephoto camera, Apple might have to interchange the positions of its ultra wide-angle camera to the top beside its main camera where the telephoto lens of the smartphone was previously placed. This is because, externally when a periscope camera is added to the device there will not be much difference externally but, internally a little more space is required. Therefore a rearrangement of the camera lenses is necessary. Just to add, the periscope telephoto lens is square shaped but in the iPhone 15 Pro Max smartphone, externally it will appear circular in shape.
