Posting leaks and rumors about the next-gen iPhone 14 series is just too early. I mean not so many people have the current iPhone 13 series but thanks to people like Jon Prosser, we’re already getting hints about what the next-gen iPhone 14 will look like…anyway, don’t cringe.
According to different reports and rumors circulating across the internet, Apple could finally change things once and for all as far as the iPhone 14 series is concerned.
While there will likely be a continuation of the sharp edges that were introduced since the iPhone 12 series, iPhone 14 will probably exclude the notch.
Apple has been adamant about the notch since it was first introduced back in 2017 and while other Android smartphone makers jumped on the bandwagon, they soon ignore this and moved on with the current craze being the implementation of a hole-punch camera cutout.
This will reportedly be what the iPhone 14 series will look like as well even though other parts of the device will still look like the current iPhone 13 series.
If you’re wondering whether Apple is planning to ditch the FaceID technology which is why the company never stopped using the notch in the first place, you’re wrong.
The FaceID isn’t probably going anywhere and as a display supply chain analyst, Ross Young has it, Apple would move the True Depth system for its FaceID technology right behind the screen and use a one-hole camera.
Another popular name in the Apple analysis Mark Gurman from Bloomberg also said that the next-gen iPhone 14 would offer a complete redesign and that the iPhone mini would be dropped off the lineup.
But The Elec has a different overview stating that the hole-punch camera cutout will only be present in the “Pro” models while the base models will still make use of the notch.
However, popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the so-called iPhone 14 will be about performances and not about design.
While all that may have already messed up your brain with opposing analysis, one thing for sure is the fact that Apple, unlike Android OEMs, doesn’t often change the overall design aesthetics of their devices every year.
It’s often about optimizing the next generation for better capabilities and performances.
And speaking of which, Kuo claims that Apple will substitute current sensors for a much larger one with 48MP image capture – which goes against Jon Prosser’s claims about Apple planning to downsize the camera module.
Since cameras need bigger space to perform much better, that can be seen in the current iPhone 13 series with a bigger camera module and sensors.
So I’d rather opt for the Kuo’s analysis over Prosser’s tips.
Anyway, we’ll still have to wait months before we can ever see another iPhone 14 series again – possibly September 2022 if everything goes according to plan.
