Kuo: iPhones 14 to miss on under-display fingerprint sensor, periscope camera

Ming-Chi Kuo revealed in his latest investor note that the Apple iPhones launched this year will miss out on periscope cameras and the under-display Touch ID. The analyst predicted that the long zoom lens might arrive next year 2023, while the fingerprint scanner is not making it until 2025.

Kuo: Apple iPhones to miss on under-display Touch ID in the next three years

We are already stepping into April, meaning the new iPhone launch is about five and a half months away. Since we are not getting a UD sensor or a periscope camera, what are we getting? Well, the iPhone 14 is coming with two punch holes, an improved main camera sensor, a thicker body and the obligatory new chipset.

However, Kuo previously stated the iPhone 14 Pro duo might be the only one in the 2022 flagship family to have the next-gen A16 Bionic chipset, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max might stick with the A15.

The non-Pro models are also expected to not have ProMotion displays, which is the fancy name Apple puts on all screens with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. The reason is the manufacturer BOE cannot match Cupertino’s demands for panels and the iPhone company decided to scale down the orders.
