All the rumors about the iPhone 14 converge on one point. Indeed, on two holes: those with which the historic “notch” of the Face ID will be replaced on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Different speech instead for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, which will instead be very similar to the current iPhone 13, including the notch.
If it is not early to talk about the next iPhone, it may seem premature to collect rumors already about the iPhone 15, the one that will be released in autumn 2023, in more than a year. And yet companies plan their moves years in advance, and some information on the products can leak out well in advance. In its latest report, the consulting firm Omdia outlined what the future of the iPhone should be seen from the front, and therefore limited to the screen.
DOUBLE HOLE FOR EVERYONE
The schematic image below summarizes the gist of the matter well. With iPhone 15, as already indicated by other rumors, Apple will extend the new identity of the iPhone, with the double hole instead of the notch, even on the basic models. There is nothing confirmed at the moment, but it is certainly a plausible hypothesis: the opposite would make little sense.
The Omdia report goes into more detail and also talks about the size of the displays, which should remain unchanged in the generation step across the board except for the iPhone 14 (and then also the iPhone 15) with a 6.12-inch panel. , slightly larger than the 6.06-inch one with which the iPhone 13 is equipped. The fact that the same diagonals will be preserved on each model in the transition from iPhone 14 to iPhone 15 also suggests that the resolution of the panels will remain the same.
FROM TWO HOLES TO ONLY ONE HOLE?
But how long will the double hole last? Little, it seems. As the well-known analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo also claims, in 2024 with the iPhone 16 (and perhaps only with the Pro and Pro Max models?) The Face ID should be hidden under the screen. The Omdia report, unlike that of Kuo, however, underlines how the selfie cam hole should be visible even after the “disappearance” of the Face ID.
The Face ID in fact must meet some material and practical requirements, and not create satisfying images, so it can be more easily implemented below the display. A very different speech, however, for the front camera: taking high-quality selfies is one of the guarantees that customers look for and find in the iPhone, and probably in Cupertino they have no intention of sacrificing the yield of the shots to hide the sensor.
