We’ve been hearing a lot about the new iPhone 14 series lately, and it looks like the smartphones will have some significant modifications anticipated in future iPhone models.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, in the most recent development, reported that the iPhone 14 series handsets would not include a notch for housing sensors in his current Power On newsletter.
Instead of a pill-shaped cut-out on top of the screen, the phones will feature a pill-shaped cut-out on top of the screen.
Apple previously stated that the notch was essential to house the sensors for the front-facing camera and the Face ID function. So, it’ll be intriguing to watch how the Cupertino-based tech behemoth fits everything into such a tiny area.
Before Mark Gurman’s recent story, The Elec, a Korean magazine, stated that the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max would have a punch-hole cut-out on the screen instead of a notch.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, has alleged that the iPhone 14 models contain a punch-hole cut-out. This discovery is practically confirmed because there have been many reports concerning the same event.
Apple initially introduced the notch with the iPhone X, and it has essentially stayed constant since then. It holds an infrared camera, a flood illuminator, a front camera, and a dot projector as part of the TrueDepth camera array.
According to reports, the notch will remain on the Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, while the Pro versions will include a new pill-shaped punch-hole cut-out for storing the sensors.
Some speculations suggest that Apple will use a laser-based time-of-flight architecture for Face ID, while others believe that the firm would use a unibody lens design to decrease the size of the front camera module.
Specifications for the iPhone 14
A supply chain report obtained by 9to5 Mac confirmed that LG would supply Apple display panels with hole-punch cut-outs. LG has reportedly provided OLED panels to Apple for the first time, according to TheElec.
LG previously provided LCD screens for prior iPhone models. Apple’s iPhones will be released in 2022, and the company will offer thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED panels made of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO).
Apple will obtain LTPO TFT screens with 120Hz support and sophisticated technology similar to those used by smartphone makers in premium OLED panels for premium devices. Punch-hole cuts will be included in OLED panels used in future iPhones, according to the speculation.
In 2022, Kuo predicted that the iPhone would have a 48MP lens. If the rumors are accurate, it will be a significant upgrade over the iPhone 13, which features the main lens with a resolution of 12MP.
This might, however, be limited to the top-of-the-line iPhone 14 models. The iPhone 14’s lowest model will keep the 12MP primary camera.
Apple’s next-generation A16 Bionic chipset will power the iPhone 14. According to some rumors, the CPU will be manufactured using a 4nm technology, while others suggest it will be manufactured on a 3nm process.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have 6.06-inch and 6.7-inch screens, respectively, according to TheElec. The iPhone 14 Pro will include 8GB of RAM, which is an upgrade above the iPhone 13 Pro’s 6GB.
At the moment, the iPhone 13 is the best-selling phone in the iPhone 13 series. The smartphone is priced at Rs 79,900 for the 128GB model and Rs 89,990 for the 256GB model.
