Intel suggests that the basic model of iPhone 15 could feature a 48MP

According to a Chinese site called ITHome, the entire iPhone 15 lineup might have a 48MP lens 

Sony is reportedly facing production capacity shortages for its camera units due to the wholesale use of 48MP in the iPhone 15 lineup. 

Earlier reports from January mentioned that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will feature a three-stacked sensor with a 48-megapixel wide lens 

The improved camera in the cheaper iPhone model will be welcome news for iPhone fans on a budget
