This year’s high-end Apple iPhone models, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, will have a new design, while the standard 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, the previous design will be used. Weibo user @Universe Otpc recently posted rough schematics sent to them by the accessory manufacturer. While they don’t show the entire elaborate design, the images confirm some of the rumors.
First, Apple has killed the iPhone Mini model after its dismal performance and will replace it with a non-Pro Max model that will be above the entry-level model.
Another thing these images seem to confirm is that iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have fairly large camera bumps. Due to rumors that the new 48MP camera sensor will replace the 12MP sensor, the size of the camera bulge has increased significantly.
While this higher-resolution sensor could further burnish the iPhone’s reputation as one of the best camera phones, it will be 35 percent larger than the sensor it replaces, and will also likely increase the height of the beyond-7p lens by 5 to 10 percent.
iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have a relatively small camera bump and are expected to feature a dual-camera system compared to the three-camera Pro variant.
None of these images accurately depict the phone’s display, but fortunately there are plenty of signs to speculate on. iPhone 14 Pro models will reportedly have pills and single holes instead of fringe grooves, and only those models are expected to have 120Hz refresh rate screens, which will be sourced from Samsung and LG. The iPhone 14 Pro line is also expected to run on the more advanced A16 Pro chip.
iPhone 14 and 14 Max models are expected to keep their bangs fluted, and they may also retain the A15 Bionic chip, although Apple may make some changes and rename it the A16 Bionic.
The new iPhone 14 lineup is also likely to have satellite connectivity and provide more basic memory than current phones.
