The upcoming iPhone 16 is set to break away from its predecessors with a redesigned camera arrangement on the rear. In a peculiar but noticeable departure, the two sensors will be stacked vertically, resembling a style often seen in Samsung’s devices.

Rumors surrounding this new camera setup have circulated for a while, and recent leaks appear to confirm this change. An image purported to be the iPhone 16’s camera chassis has surfaced, showcasing the vertical alignment of the two cameras, a departure from the diagonal arrangement found in the iPhone 15.

The leak comes from Twitter/X leakster Majin Bu and has been independently verified by industry sources, as reported by MacRumors. The revealed information points to the main camera chassis for the “I-34” camera project, slated for use in the base iPhone 16 model scheduled for release in September.

The shift to a vertical camera setup could open the door for Spatial Video recording on the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus. This change suggests Apple’s commitment to introducing innovative features rather than a mere emulation of Samsung’s design choices.

Moreover, the iPhone 16 is anticipated to inherit the Action button from the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Additionally, a new Capture button with force-sensor technology is expected to make its debut on the right side of the device. As the upcoming iPhone continues to unveil its new features, Apple enthusiasts can anticipate a departure from the norm, promising an exciting evolution in the iPhone series. Stay tuned for further updates as we approach the official release date.


Pokdepinion: I would have preferred for them to stick the original design but then again, have any form of notable change might be for the better. This is especially the case since they’ve been constantly criticized for looking practically the same for a good few generations.
