While the iPhone 13 has not yet revealed all of their secrets, indiscretions about the two future generations (iPhone 14 and 15) are starting to spread. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo talks about the 48MP module or the return of Touch ID under the display, whether or not it is paired with Face ID.
Ming-Chi Kuo Hit again. The famous analyst that today we are no longer providing is revealing new information about future iPhone models. We are talking here about smartphones that will be released in 2022, as well as smartphones for 2023! Kuo seems to have seen a lot of promising things in the crystal ball.
Switch to 48 megapixels
The first disclosure made by the analyst relates to the iPhone models of 2022 (version 14). According to him, the Pro versions will ditch the main 12 MP unit in favor of 48 MP. I will use the American company Pixel Grouping By default, it continues to display 12MP shots – as we can already see on some Android devices. Only, and unlike the competition, Kuo specifies that the “resulting” imaging sites will be much larger in size – he speaks 2.5 μm. For comparison, other sensors such as the Sony IMX586 or Samsung GM1 perform pixel groups of 1.6μm for 12MP photos. The analyst is full of praise for the supposed photographic capabilities of these two iPhone 14, pointing out This will take mobile photography to a whole new level..
At the same time, the presence of a 48-megapixel unit will allow Cupertino to offer the ability to shoot in 8K resolution. The analyst adds that photos captured with the iPhone 14 will be best suited for content in augmented reality or mixed reality. A new field of possibilities for Apple, especially as a virtual / augmented reality headset is in the pipeline.
Finally, in 2022, Apple will not introduce the iPhone Mini and will return to the classic trio: 14, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max. In terms of size, these models will adopt the same size as the iPhone 12. iPhone 14 and 14 Pro will be 6.1 inches and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be 6.7 inches.
Touch ID again in 2023
Really chatter, Ming Chi Kuo It also gives information On the iPhone models planned for 2023. He noted that within two years, Apple will equip its smartphones – possibly a Pro Max version – with the endoscope unit. IPhone 15 could also benefit from a new unlocking solution. The manufacturer is rumored to be offering a fingerprint reader under the Oled Panel. Touch ID is back which should please a lot of people.
However, Kuo does not specify whether this Touch ID will be paired with Face ID. In fact, it’s no secret that Apple is trying to get rid of its cleft by incorporating the various sensors needed to operate the face unlock. According to the analyst, in 2023, the iPhone 15 Pro Max will likely include a fingerprint reader under the display, without a notch. So we will end up with a smartphone whose screen is already completely occupying the front surface. This does not mean that Face ID will disappear, which can happen directly under the board. If the rumors are confirmed, it would be an impressive technical achievement.
