Apple’s 2022 family of iPhones will debut with a fingerprint sensor on the display, market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts in a note to investors. The line, which is supposed to be the iPhone 14 series, will probably include the regular iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Kuo predicts that the high-end models in the series will be available with a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera. The 2022 iPhone lineup is also expected not to include the iPhone mini form factor – which debuted last year as the iPhone 12 mini and is expected to receive an upgrade from the iPhone 13 series in 2021.
9 to 5Mac reports that Kuo said in his note that Apple will launch two high – end iPhone models measuring 6.1 and 6.7 inches and two low – end iPhone models measuring 6.1 and 6.7 inches. All four new iPhones will come in the second half of 2022, the analyst predicts.
In the event of a significant change in specifications within the existing iPhone range, iPhone 14 is expected to have fingerprint support in the display using Apple’s own technology. It is currently unclear whether the new models will retain the TrueDepth Camera face recognition system Face ID.
The 2022 iPhone line is believed to include a 6.7-inch iPhone, rumored to be called the iPhone 14 Pro Max, with the “lowest price ever” in size. Kuo reports that it may be under $ 900 (approximately Rs. 66,800). To give some perspective, iPhone 12 Pro Max starts at $ 1,099 (Rs. 81,500) in the United States.
Kuo also said in a note that the high-end models in the 2022 range will feature a wide-angle 48-megapixel camera. Apple has now provided a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera throughout iPhone 12 series. The analyst also suggested earlier 8K video support on the iPhone 2022 models.
The 2022 iPhone the family is also supposed to have no iPhone miniwhich could be called the iPhone 14 mini to be exact. Kuo previously suggested the absence of the mini version due poor sales performance from iPhone 12 mini. But Apple is it is supposed to have a 5.4-inch iPhone this year, which can be called iPhone 13 mini or iPhone 12s mini.
Kuo also previously predicted that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max from the 2022 series will have display design with perforator and discard the cut. Other details on what the design level changes of the iPhone 2022 models would be are yet to be offered.
