Analysts predict that there will be no more mini-series iPhones next year
This year has reached the end of June in a blink of an eye, and it will be more than two months before the most important electronic product launch event each year, Apple’s autumn special event to release the new iPhone. However, since last year’s iPhone 12 series has undergone a major renewal, so if you think about it on August 15th, this year’s new generation of iPhone 13 series will be a minor facelift, that is, upgrading the SoC and camera, changing the batch of new colors. Apple engineers have completed the mission, so that recently, some analysts have stopped talking with you about the iPhone 13 series, but directly predicted what the 2022 iPhone will be like.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst from Apple products says:
We reiterate our previous key specifications forecast for 2H22 iPhone models, namely that Apple will launch two high-end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) and two low- end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) in 2H22.
We believe the growth drivers for the new 2H22 iPhones will come from 1) the potential for under-display fingerprint support (using Apple’s own technology), 2) the lowest price ever for a large (6.7″) iPhone (we expect it to be under USD 900), and 3) a wide camera upgrade to 48MP for high-end models.
However, Apple is not completely abandoning users who are really willing to spend money to support small-screen iPhones, because Apple will launch the 2022 iPhone SE in the first half of next year. The biggest upgrade is to switch to a stronger SoC and support 5G networks.
In addition, Ming-Chi Kuo also said that next year’s iPhone will have under-screen fingerprints. I personally feel that this is not very credible. Of course, these predictions are just the opinions of analysts. Believe it or not, let’s judge by yourself.
