Apple’s iPhone 15 series is expected in the fall, but rumors are already circulating. Even before the release of the current generation, we received many indiscretions that can still be heard at the beginning of the year. Today, an analyst from a Hong Kong mutual fund gives us an overview of what to expect from the range.
A premium product?
According to the analyst, it’s not the 15 series that will change the game in terms of design. In his opinion, the next iPhones will keep the angular line adopted since the iPhone 12, while the Pro versions would opt for a slightly more premium material. In fact, it’s rumored that the iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max will come with a titanium frame, eliminating aluminum. A finish that Apple already has on some models of the Apple Watch. Thanks to two new engines, the Pro versions also have buttons with haptic feedback. Their use has yet to be specified, but there’s no doubt that Apple will be able to exploit them. On the other hand, the four models would maintain the same size as Gen 14, namely 6.1 inches for the 15 and 15 Pro models and 6.7 inches for the Plus and Pro Max models.
Inside, Apple could garnish the Pro models with its latest chip. The latter will adopt the Apple A17 Bionic (engraved in 3nm), while the Classic and Plus variants would receive the A16 of the current iPhone 14 Pro. As for memory, the Pros will go up to 8GB of RAM, which is 2GB more than the Series 14. USB-C would finally become the standard for charging.
The telephoto lens could finally make its appearance, first on the 15 Pro Max. A module whose optics could be designed by LG and which will be presented on a selection of smartphones during CES. Regarding the iPhone 15 and 15 Plus, Jeff Pu expects the 48MP module to land on the new devices.
As MacRumors argues, the analyst isn’t as perceptive as Ming-Chi Kuo, whose information is often correct. However, the rumors we are talking about today overlap with others that have already reached us. While caution is advised, there’s a good chance all of this will be confirmed as the year progresses.
