The iPhone 14 line will be revealed on September 7th, and now there’s another series of leaked information. In addition to a list of full technical specifications, a supposed cover for one of the models has surfaced, giving us more details about them.
- Xiaomi 12T and 12T Pro have leaked memory and color options
- Apple Watch Pro leaks with robust design and new buttons on the eve of the announcement
Journalist and informant Mark Gurman, from the Bloomberg website, brought news about the iPhone 14 Pro line devices in his weekly Power On newsletter. According to him, the brand will bring higher-capacity batteries to smartphones, which should help offset the arrival of the Always On Display function — screen always on — but without specifying the capacity of each of them.
In addition, he cites that Apple should focus on eSIM chip technology, at least in the two most expensive devices of this generation, without specifying if this means the end of the chip drawer in the devices.
We can also expect some other improvements for the duo, such as autofocus for the front camera, improvements to the Face ID sensors, a new 48MP rear camera, better zoom and ultrawide cameras, improvements to video recording and night photography, as well as the new Apple A16 Bionic processor.
Leaked specs indicate 6GB of RAM on all models
An image leaked on the Chinese social network Weibo brings almost all the technical characteristics of the four new smartphones. Once again, we have the information that there will not be a “mini” variant, with the arrival of the alleged iPhone 14 Plus.
This device will have a 6.7-inch screen with a resolution of 2,778 x 1,284 pixels and a maximum brightness of 1,000 nits. Such characteristics will be shared with the brother iPhone 14 Pro Max, but which will have a maximum brightness of 1,200 nits. Meanwhile, both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 will have a 6.1-inch screen with a resolution of 2,532 x 1,170 pixels, but with a brightness of 1,200 and 1,000 nits, respectively.
Going according to previous rumors, only the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will have the new A16 Bionic processor, while the simpler ones will follow the A15 on board — probably using the version present in the iPhone 13 Pro. Despite maintaining the amounts of storage of the previous generation, now the entire line will have 6 GB of RAM, which will be DDR4X technology in the simplest and DDR5 in the Pro.
The image still points to a 48 MP main camera and support for 8K video recording in the more expensive duo, against 12 MP sensors and 4K recording for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.
The alleged battery capacities were also revealed, with the iPhone 14 having a 3,279 mAh, iPhone 14 Pro with a 3,200 mAh, iPhone 14 Plus with a 4,325 mAh and the iPhone 14 Pro Max with a 4,323 mAh battery. With that, the weight of the devices has changed going to 215 grams and 255 grams in the Pro and Pro Max, against 204 and 240 grams of the previous generation. The iPhone 14 practically kept the weight of its predecessor, at 173 grams, and the iPhone 14 Plus can weigh 245 grams.
Finally, the brochure shows the likely official prices in yuan — Chinese currency — for each. The values below were converted directly to the Brazilian real and do not include national taxes.
- iPhone 14 – from 6,699 yuan (about R$ 4,980)
- iPhone 14 Plus – from 7,399 yuan (about R$ 5,500)
- iPhone 14 Pro – from 9,899 yuan (about R$ 7,360)
- iPhone 14 Pro Max – from 10,899 yuan (about R$ 8,100)
Cover shows iPhone 14 Pro with larger module
With the expected improvements in the photographic sector, it is said that the size of the photographic module of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be even larger than that of the current duo. An image shared on the Chinese social network Weibo shows a size comparison between the iPhone 13 Pro with a supposed case of the newest model.
Here, it is clear that, despite keeping the same layout for the cameras, the lenses should be even larger compared to the iPhone 13 Pro, which is already known for having a large camera module for its relatively compact size. It remains to be seen whether this will have a significant impact on the quality of the images generated by it.
Anyway, now it remains to wait for the next September 7th to confirm these and other news regarding the four devices.
