Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 13 series a few days ago. Just yesterday, this new series commenced pre-sales officially and it will ship from September 24th. However, even before the launch of the iPhone 13 series, we already had early reports on the iPhone 14 series. According to information from Apple’s supply chain, at least one of the iPhone 14 series models will use the LTPS OLED display. This smartphone will retain the regular 60Hz refresh rate of most iPhones. Of course, this model will be the cheapest in the iPhone 14 series.
However, there will be three other models that will use the LTPO display with a 120Hz variable refresh rate. Recall that in this year’s iPhone 13, only the Pro and Pro Max models use the 120Hz variable refresh rate LTPO display. Furthermore, all the panels for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models are from Samsung. However, new reports suggest that LG will enter Apple’s LTPO supply chain from next year. The company will become the second supplier of this display to Apple.
As we may already know, the iPhone 14 series will not have the 5.4-inch mini model. This series will have 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple iPhone 14 specifications
As of now, there is not much information about the iPhone 14 series. However, there is a leak of the alleged specs sheet of the entire series. This is the first information for this series and we can not authenticate the report for now.
The report shows that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will use a 6.06-inch screen. However, the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with a larger 6.68 inches display. In addition, the two basic versions of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will use LTPS displays. However, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will come with LTPO screens. From this point of view, it appears that the iPhone 14 Max has a lower positioning than the iPhone 14 Pro.
In terms of core configuration, the iPhone 14 series will come with a new Bionic A16 processor. This chip is built with a 4nm manufacturing process. Except for the basic version of the iPhone 14 which still uses a dual rear camera setup, the other three models all come with a triple rear camera setup. At the same time, the main camera of the two high-profile models will be upgraded. We expect a 1/1.3-inch 48MP sensor, and there are reports that the new 48MP camera may be used for an ultra-wide lens.
