Although we are months away from this 2021’s iPhone 13 launch event, rumors and claims about 2022 and 2023 iPhones are here. Reports suggest that iPhone 2022 lineup could arrive in two models of 6.1-inches and two larger ones at 6.7-inches. What’s more notable is that there won’t be a 5.4-inch model that year. This implies Apple could release an iPhone 13 Mini this year.
The revelation comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, a notable TF Securities analyst. Along with explaining screen options of iPhones 14, Kuo also states that Apple is working to upgrade the camera of the devices. He says the high-end handsets of 2022 iPhones will get 48MP cameras jumping from the existing 12MP.
With the camera enhancements, Kuo believes that top-end iPhones of 2022 would be able to record up to 8K resolution video apt for watching on TVs. Not just that, he also remarks iPhone 14 lineup will thus be capable of generating pictures and video ‘more suitable for AR/MR devices.’
While these scoops have been related to the 2022 iPhones, the following is for the subsequent generation.
Mr. Kuo notes that Apple is gearing up to incorporate a periscope lens for mega zooms, something which the flagships from Samsung and Xiaomi have been flaunting. Thanks to this tech, phones like the Galaxy S21 Ultra and Mi 11 Ultra can go up to 100x zoom and beyond. While detailed information is still not there about Apple’s implementation, but the source strongly expects remarkable improvements to enhance optical zoom power.
Further, the analyst tells Apple could employ under-display Face ID into its 2023 iPhones. So, by this report, we could possibly see a notch-less full-screen display on the iPhone 15 models. Incidentally, the iPhone 13 series is said to ditch the broad notch for a punch-hole design. There are also speculations around the inclusion of Touch ID under the display on this year’s models.
