iPhone 17 Pro rumored to feature an impressive 48MP ultra-wide camera

The iPhone 16 Pro may feature a second 48-megapixel sensor in its triple-camera setup, according to a leaker on Weibo. The current iPhone 15 Pro already has a 48-megapixel main camera sensor with 12-megapixel sensors for the ultra-wide and telephoto versions. The addition of a second 48-megapixel sensor would provide more options for users in terms of optical focal lengths. It would also improve low-light photography through pixel binning. The leaker did not provide any further information, but upgrading the ultra-wide camera instead of the telephoto camera is an interesting choice. Another rumor from August suggested the possibility of a second 48MP sensor. While the leaker has a following for rumors across various devices, their track record for Apple hardware is not well-established.
