According to a research report allegedly posted by TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple iPhone models in 2023 will have a “periscope telephoto lens.” Huawei and Samsung, two popular Android smartphone manufacturers, already have periscope-shaped lenses on their flagship phones. The company, on the other hand, has yet to follow this trend in its iPhone lineup.
According to previous news, Apple is also considering releasing new iPhone models with a periscope lens. The periscope-shaped lens’ design allows for improved optical peeking or zooming without increasing the camera bump.

According to MacRumors, Ming-Chi Kuo’s new note discusses its transition to periscope lens technology for the 2023 iPhone lineup. However, the analyst had previously predicted that the Cupertino-based business would adopt periscope lens-equipped iPhone models in 2022. He also stated at the time that Apple could team up with Semco in South Korea and Sunny Optical in China to produce the periscope lenses.
Periscope cameras have been used by Huawei, Oppo, and Samsung on their smartphones to provide hybrid zoom. Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra (Rs. 78,890) and Galaxy S21 Ultra (Rs. 78,890) both have 100x Space Zoom technology.
Kuo’s latest note apparently includes some speculations regarding the 2021 and 2022 iPhone lineups, in addition to the 2023 iPhone models. He believes that for the 2021 iPhone versions, Apple will use a new Face ID transmitter that is made of plastic rather than glass. This is mostly due to advancements in coating technology that was not available when Face ID was first implemented in 2017. It remains to be seen if this translates into advantages for the end-user.
The high-end models in the 2021 iPhone range, dubbed the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12s series in various rumors, are also expected to have an improved telephoto lens.
According to Kuo, improved rear cameras and a new “unibody lens design” for the selfie camera could be introduced in 2022 iPhone models. The latter is likely to aid Apple in shrinking the front camera module’s size.
Kuo projected earlier this month that the iPhone 14 Pro models arriving in 2022 will have a hole-punch display, which could be expanded to other iPhone models in 2023. In addition, the iPhone SE 5G is rumored to be in the works for around the same time.
