According to the latest report, the market is highly concerned about the development of Apple’s new iPhone 14 series in the second half of this year. The Japanese legal person estimates that Apple will launch two 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch mid-to-low-end models in the second half of this year.
Looking forward to the iPhone 14 assembly OEM, the legal person expects that Hon Hai Foxconn will be the main assembly OEM partner of the 6.7-inch high-end iPhone 14 Pro Max, the 6.1-inch high-end iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.1-inch low-end iPhone 14; and Shuo will play a major role in the assembly and foundry of the 6.7-inch mid-to-low-end iPhone 14 Max. Luxshare Precision will be the second assembly foundry for the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro.
Earlier news broke that the high-end Apple iPhone 14 Pro series models launched in 2022 are expected to use perforated displays. The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will use an upgraded display, which will abandon the notch used in the current iPhone models.
Moreover, the other two non-Pro versions of the iPhone 14 series, the size of the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, will continue to use the notch, and Apple will limit the punching design to the more expensive iPhone Pro. Apple will cancel the 5.4-inch “iPhone mini” in 2022 and instead offer four iPhone 14 series lineups of 6.1 and 6.7 inches.
Furthermore, Apple will also purchase LTPO OLED displays for the iPhone 14 Pro models to achieve a ProMotion refresh rate of 120Hz. This technology has been used on this year’s iPhone 13 Pro models. Samsung provides Apple’s OLED panels for the iPhone 13 Pro models, but Apple may purchase some displays from LG Display in 2022.
A recent report by Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Guo predicts that in the second half of 2022, the new iPhone (tentatively referred to as iPhone 14) will use a 48MP camera, while the new iPhone in the second half of 2023 will use a periscope lens.
