Apples iPhone 14 is expected to contain a pinhole camera

Tech Highlights:

  • a new take on a recent rumour from Korean publication The Elec, which claims that both the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will have the more subtle display design, citing unidentified sources.

  • The notch in the top of the display of Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models may be replaced by a hole-punch camera.

The hole-punch design, which was first seen on Samsung phones in 2019, allows for little interruption to the display by carving out a small circle for the front-facing camera.

Interestingly, most of what’s being tipped here actually backs up previous rumours.

The site also suggests that the notch will remain for the standard iPhone 14 models, while the flagship Pro line will also retain the 120Hz displays featured in the predecessors.

Back in September, reliable industry tipster Ming-Chi Kuo indicated the iPhone 14 Pro models would represent the first Apple smartphones to drop the notch and feature a hole-punch camera.

And, later in the month, this was corroborated by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who suggested that iPhone 14 will indeed see a redesign and notch-less Pro models.

Despite the strength growing behind the hole-punch theory, however, it still feels like an incredible departure for Apple to favour another company’s design over their own.

However, it could prove to be a stop-gap design until the company is able to roll out an under-display version of Touch ID and Face ID – also tipped earlier this year. With the latest iPhone models only just entering the wild, we still have plenty of time for the iPhone 14 picture to develop. Stay tuned for more rumours as they develop.
