CAD renders have already surfaced showing what the next-generation iPhone will look like. What we’re expecting from the new phone is a 48-megapixel camera, an LTPS (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) panel, and 120 Hz refresh rate. But is all of this real? Or is it just speculation? Read on for our thoughts on the future of the iPhone.
CAD renders of iPhone 14
CAD renders of iPhone 14 Pro have been surfacing online, and reveal some interesting features. The device will not have the “ugly” notch that is on current versions of the smartphone, and the front bezel will be minimal. The device will feature a punch-hole camera and triple-lens framework. The iPhone 14 Pro could have a similar design to the iPhone 13 series. CAD renders of the iPhone 14 Pro are available on the company’s website.
LTPS (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) panel
The iPhone 14, as well as the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone XR, feature LTPS (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Silicon) panels. The technology has several advantages. It enables a higher refresh rate while consuming less power. Also, unlike traditional LCD panels, LTPS displays can be made with 120Hz refresh rates. This feature allows the display to maintain a better picture quality than LCD panels.
120Hz refresh rate
Rumors suggest that Apple will add a 120Hz refresh rate to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14, but the cheaper models will stick with 60Hz displays. The 120Hz refresh rate is part of Apple’s new ProMotion technology, which differentiates Pros from non-Pros and explains the higher entry price of the Pro models. The new technology is also likely to be integrated into cheaper iPhone models in the future, as it was first seen in the company’s MacBook Pro lineup.
Apple is rumored to be working on a 48-megapixel camera for the iPhone 14. According to a note published by TF Securities last April, this change would help the company improve its finances and wide-angle imagery capabilities. However, there’s no solid evidence to back up this claim. But the fact remains that Apple is expected to include a 48-megapixel camera in the iPhone 14 Pro. A 48-megapixel camera would be 57 percent larger than the corresponding camera on the iPhone 13 Pro.
8K video recording capabilities
The new iPhone 14 will feature a 48MP sensor, which will produce 12MP photos. This will take smartphone photography to a whole new level. The iPhone 14 will also feature 8K video recording capabilities. This feature is currently only available on the iPhone X and XS Max, which are Apple’s top-tier iPhones. Apple has already introduced 4K 60FPS video recording capabilities on its smartphones, so the 8K capability should be a no-brainer.
Rumors have it that Apple’s iPhone fourteen will include an eSIM-only option. While eSIM-only devices still need a physical SIM card, Apple is moving closer to making them a reality, according to industry insiders. If Apple does not release an eSIM-only model of iPhone 14, it will be a year or so before it introduces one.
