Apple’s iPhone SE 3 is now available at a lower price. All eyes will be on the top models of this year.
Multiple leaks have already revealed the iPhone 14 series, which will be released later in the year.
According to reports, Apple could abandon its notched display design and opt for a punch-hole display. However, the normal iPhone 14 model may not get the design upgrade.
A famous display analyst, Ross Young, says the pill-shaped notch is coming to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The high-end iPhone models will also have a dual-hole design. The first hole will be a pill-shaped one that houses the Face ID module. The second will hold the front camera for taking selfies.
The vanilla version may retain the notch design, as seen on iPhone 13 series.
The source claims that the iPhone 15 models include a twin punch hole configuration.
This will allow more screen space and will not be available next year. Apple has not yet revealed how much they intend to reduce it.
The researcher suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro models might have a cutout of 5.631mm.
According to the expert, Apple could abandon the basic Face ID unit and switch to under-display facial authentication in the future.
The Face ID module will no longer have a front-facing hole.
However, under-display FaceID is expected to be available before 2023.
Young said that Face ID requires a redesign of its panel to function at high accuracy.
The most important area to change is the traditional Yb/MgAg Cathode on top of the OLED stack. This is not exceptionally transmissive in IR areas.
Young thinks that Apple might use a different pattern to drive OLED pixels than a “backside” laser drilling.
Apple has so far only sourced one supplier for mass production, but under-display Face ID is not expected to be available anytime soon.
Apple prefers dual-source components to lower costs, and it still needs to solve the above problem.
Rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 series will have up to 2TB storage.
Expect the latest iPhone models to feature 120Hz LTPO OLED displays.
Regular models might have a display of 6.1 inches, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max models could have a display of 6.7 inches. The A16 Bionic chip will power these products.
