The new iPhone 13 series maybe only two months away, but we have already started seeing some rumours for Apple’s 2022 iPhone lineup. The lineup could feature in-display fingerprint sensors, which have been present on Android for years now. The lineup could also exclude the ‘Mini’ model introduced with last year’s iPhone 12 lineup.
The report comes from 9to5Mac in which market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo informed the investors that Apple would launch two high-end iPhone models that would be 6.1- and 6.7-inch in size and two low-end iPhone models in 6.1- and 6.7-inch sizes. All four new iPhones will come in the second half of 2022, as per the analyst.
For security, the iPhone 14 lineup should include an in-display fingerprint scanner. However, it’s still unknown if California-based smartphone makers would retain the Face ID tech in their phones or entirely switch to fingerprint sensors once again.
As per Kuo, the 2022 iPhone lineup is also expected to include a 6.7-inch iPhone, the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It could come with the “lowest price ever” for the size. Kuo reportedly said that it could be priced under $900 (approx Rs 66,800).
The high-end models in 2022 should include a 48-megapixel wide camera. The 2022 lineup of iPhones will also be dropping the Mini model, and as per Kuo, the reason behind this move could be the poor sales of the iPhone 12 Mini. However, Apple is expected to retain the Mini model this year, called the iPhone 12s Mini or the iPhone 13 Mini.
