Kuo: iPhone 14 Pro models to replace notch with punch hole cutout

21 September 2021
They will also bring 48MP wide cameras.

Sort by:

Still apple is so slowww implementing such old features.

"To make a feature more mature" is just a dumb reason, because apple may takes more than 4 years to develop some old common features like punch hole, in-screen fingerprint, and 48MP for 8k recording.
And the result still same like old oppo-vivo flagship :v

Saying you can just magically "hack it" with password or even PIN is just a load of BS. You can't just brute force through it unless there is some sort of glitch that allows bypassing it. Which I'm not aware there is.

The fact thta people can still hack in to your phone with the password is very wierd. And that's why both face I'd and fp sensor is useless. Although if there was an option to disable password only then it would become actually usefull otherwise execpt for the fact its faster than password it's rlly useless

        Anonymous, 22 Sep 2021Thats actually funny when they miss with one leak and then ... moreIt was a horribly missed one. One thing is getting colors wrong. Or getting something else minor wrong. Stating it'll have flat sides and not mention anything about bigger display and less bezels is a very big miss.

        There are also other fishy things. Having model of upcoming phone leaked before the current one is released just fires up all the alarms. Apple would never so carelessly leak something like that. Ever. Another thing is that nothing about iphone 14 screams Apple. There is just no way they'll be ditching FaceID. Just no way. And even when you design and project things years ahead, they know pandemic will end eventually and terminating FaceID for it almost at the end of it would be stupid. So, why just punch hole? There is a slight chance that they've hidden the FaceID stuff under display and left only selfie cam exposed because of image quality issues of underdisplay selfie cams, but I very much doubt that. And having just punch hole doesn't give it any unique identity. Because with notch, no matter how everyone hates it (I don't), it had unique identity. If you've seen a notch on a phone, you instantly know it was an iPhone. Among 300 billion variants of just some phones with punch holes. And raising the thickness to level with the camera lenses, as much as I'd like it, just no way. The phone would be unreasonably thick then. People say they can feel extra weight of iPhone 13, iPhone 14 with such thickness would be 1/3 heavier. Which is also just no way. There is also no way they would make lenses so thin they'd be leveled with phone at current thickness.

It was called smart stay, smart pause , by checking if you look at your phone before turning of screen, and its still present i samsung devices, so nothing new

                  Now apple have no idea how to make iphone look more cooler than before

                    If there is no notch then there won’t be any difference between android and iPhone

                    Lol😂🤣

                    So dont remove !”

                      With the slow rate Apple is going, we probably won't see an iPhone Flip until 2031 and USB-C until 2041. They move at a rate where our hair turns white.

                          To the gsmarena writers.... how much you wanna bet with me that apple will repeat this years reduced notch next year too. We have been watching apple since the last fourteen years, when has apple changed a design after keeping it for just one year? You should know better than us readers.

                            Prefy, 21 Sep 2021Try to have notch on top of the screen,without a (top)notch... moreYes, Apple should retain the old-looking and ugly notch to differentiate the iPhone from Android phones. When Samsung and the other Androids have moved away from the punch-hole into hole-less screens should be the time for Apple to copy the punch-hole.

Ap... moreThats actually funny when they miss with one leak and then fanboys start to talk about like broken record player to everything. By the way there were already fakes for that watch 7 out months before it released to market. And leaks are actually good for apple so there be a lot of talking about there devices and also for fake makers will have wrong designs.

                                I dont much care for the punch hole on 14. Would be nice if they would make like 5mm bezel at top of the screen just to have speaker, selfie cam and the face id scanner in there. At least it wont ruin your screen with holes or cut outs.

                                I use password to unlock my screen as i dont want any biometric info about me to be in any device that have potential to leak in the network and can cause harm to me.
