IT Home News on December 9th, according to MacRumors citing South Korean website The Elec report, 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 the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will use an upgraded display, which will abandon the notch notch used in the current iPhone models.
The perforated screen will allow Apple to provide a larger display area while also leaving room for the front camera, which is a design that Android smartphones have used for many years. If Apple really transitions to this design, the Face ID hardware may move under the display.
The other two non-Pro version 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 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.
The Elec said that Apple will also purchase LTPO OLED displays for the iPhone 14 Pro models to achieve a 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate. This technology has been used on this year’s iPhone 13 Pro models. IT Home is informed that Samsung has provided Apple with OLED panels for iPhone 13 Pro models, but Apple may purchase some displays from LG Display in 2022.
There have been multiple reports that the iPhone 14 series will use a punch-hole display. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has repeatedly stated that some iPhone 14 Pro models may use this technology.
