The front camera should change with the arrival of the iPhone 14

iPhone 14 Pro Max concept

LG Innotek was chosen to manufacture the front camera of the iPhone 14 and its various versions. This is announced by the Korean media Korea IT News in a new article just published, where it is also specified that this change took place to the detriment of another supplier, Chinese as for him. Full-scale production is also expected to begin soon.

In all likelihood, this is a cost-cutting strategy on the part of Apple, but not only. Indeed, the company which had previously been promised this work would not have succeeded in satisfying the quality criteria from Cupertino. A second partner, Sharp, would however have retained its position and should deliver about as many components to Apple as the chaebol.

What technical specifications?

If the iPhone 14’s front camera improves, it’s for good reason. Indeed, the sensor currently offered by selfies on iPhone 13 is limited to twelve small megapixels and this figure has been constant since 2019. Other manufacturers, on the other hand, often do much better even if DxOMark continues to consider Apple mobiles as among the most effective for portraits.

In 2022, customers would be entitled to several new features including the arrival of autofocus on FaceTime. Ideal for video calls, especially at a time when teleworking has become the norm for many employees or freelancers. Add to this an aperture going from f/2.2 to f/1.9and you theoretically get clearer images even in low light conditions (night, dark interiors, fickle weather).

Exit at the end of the year

The iPhone 14s are expected to be four in number, with a classic 6.1-inch model, an iPhone 14 Pro of the same size and two 6.7-inch editions including one with 120Hz refresh rate and LiDAR. Usually, Apple organizes a presentation keynote in september and mobiles are available a few days later, but the recent setbacks of Asian production chains risk shifting this schedule. On site, COVID has caused some factories to close and such delays have already been observed when the iPhone 12s arrived, for similar reasons.
