IPhone 14 design just rocked with a radical overhaul – no notch or camera bump

The iPhone 13 is set to make its first official appearance on September 14 at Apple’s big product launch event. But before the public even gets a first glimpse of the company’s new flagship, new renderings are said to give an incredibly early look at the iPhone 14 of 2022.

Jon Prosser, the main head of Front Page Tech, was reportedly briefed by internal staff, either at Apple or within the company’s supply chain, on what the iPhone 14 Pro Max will look like. Prosser hasn’t named his sources, but he has an above-average record in fixing the leaks.

According to a video posted to Front Page Tech’s YouTube channel, Prosser details exactly what we can expect from the iPhone 14’s design.

The most striking part of the iPhone 14’s alleged design is how it looks like the iPhone 4. Like the iPhone 4, the future phone would offer two pieces of flat glass sandwiched between a metal rail. According to Prosser, this rail is made of titanium.

The iPhone 14 would also eliminate two lingering iPhone annoyances: the notch and the camera bump. According to Prosser, the iPhone 14 will supposedly push all Face ID sensors under the screen.

The camera bump on the back of the phone is also gone in this supposed design, allowing the camera module to supposedly sit flush with the rest of the back. There also doesn’t appear to be an additional cutout to demarcate the camera area. Everything is on the same plane.

To get rid of the camera bump, the iPhone 14 may use a periscope camera lens, which stacks the lenses horizontally instead of vertically.

The glass is said to have a semi-gloss finish with the Apple logo under the glass.

As for the colors, Prosser was unable to get final confirmation on which hues will ship with Apple’s 2022 phones. But it would be safe to expect black, silver / white and gold. Prosser claims he saw a gold variant of the phone, while his team faked a turquoise model for fun.

The iPhone 14 probably isn’t the portless iPhone that seems to leak out every now and then. Instead, it will still have the incessant Lightning port, a sort of technological holdover that apparently refuses to evolve into USB-C.

According to this rumor, the front of the display, as mentioned above, would remove the notch, pushing the sensors underneath. But there will be a single punch-hole camera cutout for selfies. Considering the poor photo quality of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3’s underscreen camera, this practical design choice makes sense.

On the Front Page Tech website, it is also possible to view the iPhone 14 in augmented reality via Safari on iPhone or iPad.

Overall, it’s hard to say if Front Page Tech’s iPhone 14 leak is credible – and it should remain so until more sources come forward about Apple’s future phone plans. For obvious reasons, Prosser was unable to disclose his sources as they would likely face retaliation from Apple and potential lawsuits. Prosser himself has a decent track record when it comes to Apple information. According to the AppleTrack ranking, Prosser ranks 12 among Apple Leakers, with an accuracy score of 76.6%.

Before we see the iPhone 14, of course, we’ll likely have the iPhone 13 launch next week. The notch is back on this phone, although it’s supposed to be smaller, and Pro models are expected to feature screens with varying refresh rates.
