With the trend toward larger smartphones, there have been voices for many years waiting for the 'small iPhone with the latest features such as Face ID.' The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini was released to such people in 2020, but since then, the sales of the iPhone 12 mini have been reported to be 'the worst in the series.'

For this reason, experts questioned whether Apple would continue to make small iPhones, but Apple-related analyst Minchey Kuo said that the iPhone 13 scheduled to be released in 2021 is also 5.4 inches small. He showed the view that a model will appear. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 scheduled to be released in 2022 is predicted to have two types of lineup, '6.7 inch and 6.1 inch' for both high-end model and low-end model. In other words, it is believed that small models will be discontinued after iPhone 14.
Kuo also predicts that the iPhone camera will evolve significantly in 2022. According to Kuo, the camera installed in the high-end model of iPhone 14 may support 48 megapixels and 12 megapixels. And the 12-megapixel camera has an image sensor pixel size of 2.5um, which is thought to be larger than existing Android devices, iPhone 12, and iPhone 13. 'The 2022 iPhone will take smartphone cameras to a new level,' Kuo said.
In addition to the 48-megapixel camera, the iPhone in 2022 will be able to record 8K video, and it is predicted that in the future it will be possible to watch the video recorded on the iPhone in 8K. Apple is focusing on augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) development, but the optimal resolution for augmented reality is 8K to 16K, so the new camera for the 2022 iPhone will enhance AR and MR. It is expected.
Mr. Kuo also mentioned the prediction that the 2022 iPhone will have a punchhole type display without the notch on the top of the main unit. Since iPhone X, the iPhone has a notch at the top of the screen for the TrueDepth camera used for Face ID. Apple has been rumored to have a smaller notch on the 2021 iPhone, but if the facial recognition system could be built entirely under the display, this notch wouldn't be needed, resulting in a 'notchless design.' Kuo predicts that there is a possibility.
In addition, the iPhone of 2023 periscope was shown Kuo said that there is a possibility that (periscope) type of telephoto lens is mounted. It is believed that this will improve the performance of the telephoto lens.
