Apple is expected to use a hole screen for its upcoming iPhone Pro model, due in nine months, according to a South Korean news site.
While the iPhone 12 was a big gap in terms of a design change, the iPhone 13 only changed minor specs. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 should undergo a redesign of its screen design . In any case, this is what the South Korean news site The Elec, which specializes in technological scoops, says. According to Seoul, the iPhone 14 Pro should get rid of the notch on the front, replaced by a simple hole .
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will keep the notch, unlike the Pro models
Replacing the selfie notch at the top of the screen with a simple small hole is already a feature found on many high-end Android smartphones. The hole screen will only be found on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models .
In other words, the entry-level iPhone 14 and its larger version, the iPhone 14 Max, will remain on the same distinctive notch that debuted in 2017 with the iPhone X.
iPhone 14 Pro: replacing the notch with a hole is a small technological challenge
Another expert analyst of Apple products, Ming-Chi Kuo, has said twice this year that in 2022 Apple will incorporate a single hole for the camera lens in its iPhone 14 models most high-end . The South Korean site The Elec therefore confirms these claims, apparently according to local sources.
Replacing a notch with a simple hole doesn’t sound like much, but it’s still a small technological challenge . So that Apple can offer ” an immersive experience in full screen “, it is indeed necessary ” that the display area surrounding the hole maintains a resolution and colors identical to the other areas of the screen “.
Less solid speculation suggests that Apple is ditching FaceID (facial recognition) for TouchID (on-screen fingerprint recognition), so we’ll have to wait a few more months to find out. Apple’s new iPhone 14 range is expected in fall 2022 .
