Top Apple analyst predicts larger screen and periscope camera in iPhone 16 Pro. In a blog post published on Tuesday, the well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that he anticipates the upcoming iPhone 16 Pro will include both a larger screen and a periscope camera as part of its feature set.
According to Kuo, the screen on the iPhone 16 Pro will be “slightly larger” than the displays on the currently available iPhone 14 Pro and the soon-to-be-released iPhone 15 Pro. He indicated that the increased size would provide sufficient room for a periscope camera to be installed in the apparatus. 2024 is projected to be the year Apple releases the iPhone 16 variants.
Kuo stated that he anticipates both the iPhone 16 Pro and the even larger iPhone 16 Pro Max will include periscope cameras due to the enhanced zoom capabilities that these cameras provide. In March, he stated that he anticipates Apple’s future iPhone 15 Pro Max, which would be the most extensive and most costly model in Apple’s upcoming lineup, will also contain a periscope camera.
Periscope cameras have been seen across several Android manufacturers, including Google and Samsung, but they have not yet made their way into an iPhone.
Kuo’s statements are consistent with those made by Ross Young, an additional industry analyst, who predicted that both the iPhone 16 Pro and the iPhone 16 Pro Max would have displays of a larger size. Young tweeted from the previous week that he was “hearing about some new sizes on the Pro models.”
When another user speculated that the screen size of the iPhone 16 Pro would expand from 6.1 inches to 6.4 inches and that the iPhone 16 Pro Max screen size would increase from 6.7 inches to 6.9 inches, Young responded with “close.”
A request for comment was sent to Apple, but the company did not immediately answer.
