This year, Apple will present us with the iPhone 13 or iPhone 12S series. According to leaks and rumors, we may not see a huge jump over the last series. One of the major highlights of the iPhone 13 series will be its 120Hz LTPO Panel that will be exclusive to the Pro and Pro Max variant. According to recent rumors, all 2022 iPhone models will have 120Hz ProMotion and may feature a punch-hole notch display.
Currently, Apple has two independent manufacturers for displays. One is Samsung that will be producing LTPO panels (which will be using on Pro/Max models), and the second supplier is LG for LTPS panels (for vanilla variants). However, things may change as LG will reportedly supply LTPO panels for Apple.
According to MacRumors, there will be a change in the 2022 iPhones. There will be two 6.1 inch models and two 6.7-inch models. And if LG starts producing LTPO displays for Apple, then we will see all these 4 models having a 120Hz refresh rate display.
2022: iPhone 14 may adopt the punch-hole notch
The next speculation for the iPhone 14 series is a punch-hole notch. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, some iPhone 14 models will adopt punch-hole notch similar to Samsung Galaxy smartphones. There are two possibilities here:
- iPhone 14 will use a punch-hole notch, and iPhone 14 Pro/Max will adopt an under-display camera OR
- iPhone 14 will use a standard notch, and iPhone 14 Pro/Max will adopt a punch-hole notch
I hope it’s the first option. But it’s the most unlikely. We are not expecting to see an under-display camera till 2023. According to Kuo, only one 2023 iPhone model will adopt an under-display camera with an under-display fingerprint. Seems like we are going to see old-fashioned iPhones until 2023.
