Apple officially released the iPhone 13 series a few weeks ago. Even before the official launch of the iPhone 13 series, there have been reports of the iPhone 14 series. It is important to note that although the iPhone 13 series have a couple of internal improvements, there is hardly any change in its appearance. Of course, this has been the appearance of iPhones since the iPhone X (2017). Recently, some renders of the iPhone 14 Pro series hit the web. The renders show the appearance of the upcoming iPhone which is quite different.
According to the renders, the iPhone 14 Pro series will completely abandon the notch design. It will finally use the punch-hole camera solution which has been on Android smartphones for many years. However, if the renders are true, the iPhone 14 Pro series will use a unique center pill-shape punch-hole camera design. This is not very common even for Android manufacturers. Most of the pill-shaped punch-hole designs from Android manufacturers are not in the center of the screen. They are usually on the left side of the display. This will make the iPhone 14 Pro series appear differently.
Furthermore, this new display design will further increase the screen-to-body ratio. However, it will still be lower than that of the current Android punch-hole smartphones. Apple’s design is also to ensure the placement of Face ID components, which has the highest security facial recognition solution. Although this long pill-shape punch-hole camera is not visually immersive, it is a huge leap from the notch design. It makes the display obviously more immersive than the notch design.
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.
