Rumors about the next iPhones continue to circulate. Among the most anticipated novelties are the new screen design of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, as well as the 48 megapixel camera on these two models.
And apparently, as far as the screen is concerned, Apple is also planning a major improvement. In any case, this is what is suggested by an article published recently by Forbes magazine, which relays revelations from analyst Ross Young, one of the most relevant sources of leaks when it comes to screens.
According to this source, all models of the iPhone 14 series would benefit from a new display technology from Samsung Display: OLED M12 screens. Apparently, this technology is so new that it was not used by Samsung for its Galaxy S22 series.
Indeed, according to Ross Young, this technology was only just beginning with the launch of the S22 series. But this should logically be used by Samsung on the S23 series in 2023. Other sources, however, suggest that Samsung would have sought to reduce costs instead.
What will be the contributions of this new technology?
According to Forbes, the M12 display technology would improve screen performance, color accuracy, and energy efficiency.
In other words, the screen of the iPhone 14 should be better compared to that of the iPhone 13. And apparently, by using this technology, Apple would mainly focus on energy savings, which should in particular allow iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with large batteries, to have very good autonomy.
In any case, therefore, the iPhone 14 series should not use the same technology as its predecessor. And it will be good news for the fans, if this information is correct.
Unfortunately, when it comes to the processor, the news is less good. Indeed, according to rumors, the next iPhone chip, the A16 Bionic chip, should be engraved in 5 nm, like its predecessor. Thus, one should not expect too much performance gains.
Also, only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would use the A16 Bionic chip. As for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, these would use last year’s chip: the A15.
But of course, since all this information does not come from an official source, it should still be considered with extreme caution.
