Apple works in technologies that are seeking to optimize aspects as important as the quality of the camera or the operation of the home button, for example. Strong points in which the signing of Tim Cook made particular emphasis on the presentation of this seventh generation of the family iPhone.
The Smartphone sector is in constant evolution, and for the eighth generation expect great new additions and improvements to leave behind the current terminals. At least that’s what you should do the company of Cupertino to surprise more than with the current iPhone 7.
So it is no wonder that is in the research and development of technologies that allow to integrate new functions and features to their devices, as they do for the rest of companies. According to pick up Apple insider, now Apple has patented a super resolution. Let’s see what this is about.
The patent that will revolutionize the camera of the iPhone 8
The middle quoted suggests that the technology that shows this last patent of Apple will be the one to integrate the model of next year. It’s about cameras of multiple sensors that allow a super resolution, as have been baptized. What is this technology will offer the highest quality of the image in a limited space. Get it through a system that divides the light that comes into three wavelengths – red, blue and green – making use of a set of prisms.
Through several independent light sensors, manages to run and catch the light to combine then the results in a super-resolution image obtained through a specialized software. In the patent, Apple exposes that the use of spacers of colors makes it possible for a resolution of optimized image if compared to the achieved with a single sensor since it absorbs a lower amount of light.
The patent refers to this division of the beam of light with a prism signed by Philips. The Red Light, Green, and Blue collection is collected in the substrates of ceramics that are located on the sides of the prism. The Divisor of light runs the specific wavelengths for each sensor with minimal losses.
With regard to the integration of what is described in this patent on the phones, Apple has created an illustration of design “folded” of the camera. Through the use of a small mechanism of a mirror, you can minimize the space it occupies the system, making the light bounce. In the source indicates that an example of the implementation of this system in place might be for the purpose of the lens in the same way that happens in the current iPhone, but placing the image sensor in any other area of the chassis, with the optical axis Willing at a right angle to the lens.
Apple has other patents for a triple sensor, a system of three glasses, and a bucket divisor related cube the technology of image. And now, it’s a patent that explains the algorithms that allow the super resolution and that they would combine with the other to present a terminal with specifications in the photographic section really surprising. Who knows, you may see him in the iPhone 8.
