2022 iPhone series may include two 6.1-inch devices (with a hole-punch design instead of a notch) and two 6.7-inch devices. Two of these models can be targeted at a lower price point, while the other two battle for the title of flagship, akin to the iPhone 12 range currently on the market.
The 5.4-inch iPhone is expected to make a comeback this year. According to an analyst, Apple will not release another compact phone in 2022.
The 5.4-inch iPhone mini was launched with the iPhone 12 lineup, and Apple continues to sell a 5.4-inch smartphone until 2021, although it appears that the size will be phased out after that. The iPhone 12 Mini is one of the best (if not the best) small flagship phones on the market. According to numerous iPhone sales figures, the iPhone 12 mini isn’t selling as well as intended. It is said to have performed poorly in comparison to its siblings in terms of sales.
Apple will implement major camera updates in the 2022 iPhones, including a 48-megapixel camera in the high-end iPhone 14 models, in addition to streamlining size options. As an analyst claims, the improved camera lens will take iPhone photography to “a new level.”
In terms of pixel size, the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and new 2H22 iPhone are about 1.7um, 2um, and 1.25um, respectively. We believe that the new 2H22 iPhone may support direct 48MP output and 12MP (four cells merge output mode) output simultaneously. With 12MP output, the CIS pixel size of the new 2H22 iPhone increases to about 2.5um, which is significantly larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, and larger than existing Android phones, and close to the DSC level. We believe that the camera quality of the new 2H22 iPhone will elevate mobile phone camera photography to a new level.Ming-Chi Kuo
The high-end iPhones are supposed to have a 48-megapixel lens that can also output in 12-megapixels, as well as the ability to capture 8K video, and viewing iPhone-recorded videos on an 8K monitor or TV would “offer a better user experience.” This will be a significant improvement in camera performance. It is also implied this may be a ‘Pro’-only feature.
Since the best resolution for augmented and mixed reality is 8K to 16K, the 2022 iPhone’s 48-megapixel camera can produce videos and images that are “more suitable for AR/MR devices” and “enhance the AR/MR user experience.”
It’s now unclear whether all future iPhones will have a punch-hole display or whether Apple will stick with the notch design. According to reports, the 2022 iPhone would also lack a home button, and the company may end up calling the new model iPhone SE. So, there’s a lot of iPhone rumors floating around, and we advise you to take them all with a grain of salt. We expect to learn more about them in the coming months.
Moreover, the A14 Bionic chipset will be used in the 2022 iPhone, along with 4GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. It will run iOS 14 and be powered by a 2,821mAh battery with fast-charging capabilities. Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, 5G, NFC, and a Lightning port should all be supported by the user in terms of connectivity.
