iPhone 14 broke the mold. Dealers lost tens of thousands of dollars

Resellers who bought iPhone 14 smartphones from the first owners when they left the stores have already lost quite a lot, as markups for the new series quickly went down.

Yesterday we reported that the markup for the iPhone 14 Pro Max with 1TB flash dropped from $600 to $320 on the first day, while the iPhone 14 Pro with 128GB flash costs only $125 more than the recommended price. And these are the prices of the second half of Friday. On Saturday, they continued to decline, as a result of which speculators, who purchased a large number of smartphones at prices above the recommended ones, remained in the red, as predicted.

Mydrivers reports that the best-selling in the Chinese market is the dark purple iPhone 14 Pro Max. Even before the start of sales, it was expected that the revenue of speculators on each smartphone sold would be from 280 to 400 dollars.

But now the markup per series is already ranging from $15 to $115. And the fact that the speculator bought smartphones with a higher margin from the first owners of the iPhone 14 Pro Max now does not bother anyone. Resellers’ data show that the markup on the iPhone 14 Pro Max with 512 GB of flash memory has dropped from $400 to $115. Observers believe that the prices of iPhone 14 Pro smartphones in the Chinese market may come close to the recommended ones within a few days.

Some speculators have already admitted that they have lost thousands (and some tens of thousands) of dollars. This time they will do without a brand new apartment.

As you can see in the drawing, the module will be huge. In terms of the size ratio of the module to the size of the smartphone itself, it is even larger than that of the Xiaomi 12s Ultra.

Of course, the dimensions of the module do not at all mean that the new Tecno will also have a large inch image sensor. Given what the company produces, this is unlikely.

As for other parameters, the FCC base says a 5040 mAh battery with 45-watt charging and Bluetooth 5.3.

The image stabilization unit may be configured to move the movable element in at least one direction perpendicular to the optical axis, so that the optical axis is aligned with the predetermined position of the image sensor.

Apple first introduced sensor-shift image stabilization technology to the wide-angle module of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The camera of this smartphone uses sensor shift to achieve better image stabilization and better photo quality.

In the iPhone 14 Pro/Max, Apple installed a 48-megapixel camera. However, some users experienced camera shake issues, which Apple fixed in iOS 16.0.2. Also, the iPhone 14 Pro/Max telephoto lens does not support this technology.

As previously reported, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra may be the first smartphone to feature telephoto sensor shift technology. The main camera should have a resolution of 200 megapixels.
