|New revelation about the screen without ‘rabbit ears’ of iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max|
Rumors about iPhone 2022 will no longer have “rabbit ears” (notch) started appearing in March of this year.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple will adopt the punch-hole screen design, a design that Android devices have used for several years now.
The punch-hole is the center-mounted cutout above the display for the front-facing camera. This makes the display area larger than the current “rabbit ears” screen.
Mr. Kuo believes that at least the samples Iphone high-end will have a perforated design, although if the supply chain guarantees the number of panels, all iPhone 2022 models may all use the same type of screen.
Many recent rumors suggest that the standard version iPhone 14 models, with sizes of 6.1 and 6.7 inches, will continue to use the “rabbit ears” design and Apple prioritizes the punch-hole design for the newer versions. iPhone version is more expensive. According to reports, there will be no “iPhone 14 mini” refresh in 2022.
Follow The Elec, Samsung, Apple’s main OLED panel supplier, will take care of all the punch-hole panels for the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, while LG Display will take care of the iPhone 14 Pro Max display orders for the first time 6.7 inches.
Samsung has provided “rabbit ears” LTPO TFT OLED panels for Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro launched this year. But LG Display did not win any orders for the iPhone 13, even though it participated in the development of the panel with Apple.
As a result, orders for the iPhone 14 Pro Max are a big boost for LG as it tries to break into Apple’s iPhone supply chain.
LG’s participation in the iPhone supply chain also helps Apple reduce its dependence on Samsung and gain an advantage in price negotiations.
With the use of a screen without “rabbit ears”, Apple is likely to use another solution for Face ID and it can be placed under the screen.
