According to Apple’s supply chain insiders, iPhone cameras may use circuit boards based on liquid crystal polymers (LCP) in the future to enable them to transmit high-resolution images at higher speeds. The use of LCP based flexible PCB in camera lens module is related to the introduction of high-speed 5g into Apple’s smartphone product line, as well as the increasing popularity of live video and augmented reality applications. < / P > < p > according to the source, in the future, the lens module of iPhone camera may also adopt LCP PCB on a large scale to support high-speed image transmission. The reason is that the image data in 5g era will become more and more complex, and high-speed transmission is needed to make high-resolution images applied in live broadcast and AR applications. < / P > < p > this interesting paragraph appears in a report on the increase in the number of apple supply chain partners providing mass production mmwave antenna boards for the iPhone in 2021. Mmwave also uses LCP Based PCB, which is the fastest 5g network technology currently launched by operators. < / P > < p > it is expected that at least some iPhone 12 models will support mmwave this year, but the report is not clear when Apple’s iPhone is expected to add LCP based camera module PCB to enable faster image transmission. < / P > < p > Apple is expected to release the high-end 6.7 and 6.1 inch iPhones with three lens cameras, while the new low-end 5.4 and 6.1-inch iPhones are expected to have dual lens cameras. < / P > < p > the more advanced iPhone 12 models may use an improved telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, an improvement over the current 2x optical zoom. It is rumored that in 2020, the high-end 6.7-inch iPhone will receive sensor mobile image stabilization technology, which may bring image stabilization to ultra wide angle lenses on these devices. < / P > < p > Apple may also add a new camera mode to the more advanced iPhone 12, allowing them to shoot 4K video at 120 and 240 frames per second. According to reports, the new camera mode is cited in IOS 14. < / P > < p > in addition, there are rumors that at least one of the new iPhone models to be launched in 2020 will be equipped with a 3D camera, which sounds like the lidar scanner feature Apple added to the iPad Pro Model in 2020. Lidar can be used to measure the photon level of the surrounding environment at the speed of nanosecond. It is said that “gta5” will be launched on Google cloud game platform stadia
