The leak teases Apple’s upcoming high-end monster

The iPhone 15 Ultra, the upcoming high-end smartphone from Apple, continues to be talked about. One before the keynote, a leak sketched the robot image of the next flagship of the Californian brand.

While the iPhone 14 has just arrived on the market, a series of leaks have already drawn hints of the the iPhone 15 range. According to the first restrictions, the next generation will consist of an iPhone 15, an iPhone 15 Plus, an iPhone 15 Pro and an iPhone 15 Ultra.

Many well-known informants, including Ming-Chi Kuo and Mark Gurman, have actually predicted the abandonment of Pro Max terminology. The most premium model in the range will now be called the Ultra, which coincides with the release of the Apple Watch Ultra. This version is intended more upscale than iPhones branded Pro Max.

8K videos and better autonomy for the iPhone 15 Ultra?

After these leaks, LeaksApplePro, a prolific informant on Twitter, shared several key points of the alleged technical data sheet of the upcoming iPhone 15 Ultra. The smartphone canRecord videos in 8K. The leaker determined that Apple is already working on 8K recording, but it is not known if the functionality will be confined to the iPhone 15 Ultra. It is possible that 8K will be offered in the Pro versions as well.

The latest iPhones are limited to 4K video recording. In this respect, Apple is behind the competition. For example, Samsung’s Galaxy S’s have been able to shoot 8K for three generations. Same story on the side of brand folding devices. According to analyst Ming Chi Kuo, the iPhone 15 Ultra will also have a periscopic lens to provide better optical zoom.

The iPhone 15 Ultra can also be good thanks to better autonomy. In fact, Apple wants to improve the endurance of all iPhones in the range. However, the most premium smartphone should inherit the biggest battery. LeaksApplePro talks about 3 to 4 hours more autonomy.

Besides, the iPhone 15 Ultra should be covereda 6.7 inch screen, like the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Not surprisingly, Apple is expected to release this Ultra model with a high price tag. The informant calculates a minimum starting price of 1199 dollars, or $100 more compared to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The addition promises to be more salty, especially in Europe, where iPhone prices have already increased this year.

A segmented range

According to information from LeaksApplePro, the entire range is entitled Dynamic Island, one of the main features of the iPhone 14 Pro. On the other hand, the 120 Hz ProMotion screen will once again be confined to the most expensive iPhones, recently assured Ross Young, a famous analyst.

Similarly, not all models work no rights to the new SoC. As it happened this year, Apple will reserve the new chip, titled A17 Bionic, for the premium models, namely the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Ultra. For their part, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are powered by the A16 chip, which is already at the heart of the iPhone 14 Pro.

Finally, all iPhones must be shipped a USB-C port rather than a Lightning port. The European Union actually decided to impose a universal plug for all electronic devices sold in its territory, forcing Apple to say goodbye to its proprietary port. The brand has already begun to eliminate Lightning from other products in its catalog, namely iPads.

If Apple keeps to its schedule, the iPhone 15s will be unveiled September 2023. A year before the keynote, we invite you to take this information with a grain of salt. Apple is still free to change its plans between now and the launch of mass production, which is not expected before next summer.
