Manzana is currently working on the development of new model of ‘smartphone’ to succeed his iPhone 12 and he plans to introduce a periscope lens on the camera made by a South Korean outside company, which could be Samsung, as reported by Digitimes.
Several current terminals on the market make use of periscope cameras, which allow for higher zoom figures. This is the case of the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom or the most recent Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, with a zoom of up to one hundred increases (100x).
Apple has not used lenses of this type in any of its mobiles so far, but according to industry sources in South Korea, the US company is now seeking to reach agreements with manufacturers in this country to use its periscopes, as it has initially collected Digitimes.
Apple could use the periscope lenses developed by the South Korean Samsung, already present in their devices, as precisely the Galaxy S20 Ultra, as The Next Web has reported.
At the moment this negotiation is in its initial stages and it is not known if Apple plans to use the periscope in its next iPhone model or if it will do so later.
