iPhone 14: this 3D video shows the new design without notch
The iPhone 14 continue to be talked about months before the keynote. According to the video produced by a graphic designer, the range would be distinguished by a perforated screen, flat edges and a camera whose modules are intended to be more discreet.
With the iPhone 14, Apple would finally abandon the notch. Present since the iPhone X launched in 2017, the notch contains all TrueDepth sensors required for Face ID facial recognition to work. This element has finally established itself as one of the distinctive markers of iPhones over Android smartphones.
Despite everything, Apple would have decided to swap the notch against a hole in the screen. The Californian manufacturer would indeed have succeeded in miniaturize Face ID sensors in order to slip them into a tiny cavity in the touch screen. Several informants, including Jon Prosser, agree with this.
A much more discreet photo block for the iPhone 14
Based on the latest information on the web, the ConceptsiPhone YouTube channel has developed a presentation video with 3D renderings iPhone 14. We thus discover several models with a punched screen and flat and angular edges like iPhone 12. Unless it is surprised, Apple should remain faithful for several generations to this look which is reminiscent of the iPhone 4.
On the back side, we notice the disappearance of the prominent photo block. This time, the photo modules do not protrude from the structure. It’s a big change from the iPhone 13 Pro / Pro Max, whose massive sensors protrude from the glass back. Note that the video highlights a USB-C port instead of the Lightning connector (which is very unlikely) as well as a TouchID fingerprint reader on the edge.
The video lists 4 iPhone models: the iPhone 14, the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple splits its range into two affordable models and two more premium models.
However, there are rumors that not all iPhone 14s would give up the notch. According to the latest assertions from “@PandaIsBald”, a very popular Chinese leaker on Sina Weibo, Apple would keep the notch on the more affordable versions of the range, namely the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. Only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would be entitled to a holey screen.
