New Delhi: Apple is likely to unveil the iPhone 14 line this fall and leaks and rumours about the upcoming iPhone 14 series too are surfacing more than ever now. According to a new leak, an image of metal molds of the purported iPhone 14 series suggests that the company may be doing away with the mini variant this year. The new image shows metal molds in only 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes, thus, suggesting that the iPhone 13 mini was the last mini model in the iPhone lineup.
The image has surfaced on Weibo, and pretty much confirms previous rumours that the iPhone 14 series will come in only two sizes. The leaked image also shows that Apple will continue with the tradition of adding three sensors at the rear, in the iPhone 14 Pro models. The upcoming iPhone 14 line will, however, not come with periscope cameras, but is likely to feature an upgraded main camera with a 48MP sensor. According to famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, only the iPhone 14 Pro models will get the new sensor.
Meanwhile, earlier last month, Kuo had mentioned that the upcoming Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are set to get more prominent and bigger camera bumps as the company is upgrading its wide camera to 48MP. As per the famed analyst, the camera bump on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max will see an increase by as much as 25 per cent-35 per cent and the height of 48MP’s 7P lens will increase by 5 per cent-10 per cent.
“The main reason for the larger and more prominent rear-camera bump of the 14 Pro/Pro Max is upgrading the wide camera to 48MP (vs. 13 Pro/Pro Max’s 12MP). The diagonal length of 48MP CIS will increase by 25-35%, and the height of 48MP’s 7P lens will increase by 5-10%,” Kuo had tweeted.
