iPhone 15 or iPhone 16? Apple has patented a smartphone without cutouts

Published

Apple has been using notches in iPhones for the past 5 years. The notch at the top of the screen has been reduced in the iPhone 13, but there has been no drastic change in terms of design. The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to replace the bangs with two cutouts of a smaller area. But Apple is already working on a complete ditching of notches.

On April 5, the US Patent and Trademark Office approved a new Apple patent that describes a smartphone with a front-facing camera and Face ID sensors located under the surface of the screen. It has long been rumored that Apple is working in this direction, and the latest registration confirms the rumors.

Since the patent has just been approved, its practical implementation is not expected until next year. Moreover, the final design of the iPhone 14 was approved at the beginning of the year, and test production of new smartphones began in February.

But, apparently, preliminary work on the iPhone 15 series has already begun. The company has a whole year in reserve before the start of test production in order to fine-tune this technology and improve the process.

Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphones may differ in speed versions with

As it became known, the versions of the Samsung Galaxy S23 smartphone equipped with 128 and 256 GB of flash memory differ in the type of this very memory.

The 128GB version uses slower UFS 3.1 memory. The 256GB version of the Galaxy S23 uses the new UFS 4.0 memory. In both cases, new LPDDR5X RAM is installed.

Allegedly, the base version may be slower in various scenarios than the 256GB version of the Galaxy S23. UFS 3.1 has a sequential read speed of 2100 Mbps and a sequential write speed of 1200 Mbps, while UFS 4.0 has a sequential read speed of 4200 Mbps and a sequential write speed of 2800 Mbps.

There is evidence that Samsung does not produce 128 GB UFS 4.0 memory chips. Only Kioxia makes 128GB UFS 4.0 memory, but even those don’t reach the required speeds. Therefore, Samsung decided to use UFS 3.1 flash memory for the lower version.

Samsung is offering a free upgrade for those who pre-order the Galaxy S23 series in many countries. For example, if you order the 128 GB version, you can get the 256 GB version.

Perhaps its time for Apple to cut the iPhone line

So far, all available statistics show that the iPhone 14 Plus is not in great demand. According to recent data, shipments of screens for this model in February will be very low, and in the previous two months, Apple partners did not ship such displays at all.

As you can see, shipments of screens for the iPhone 14 Plus began to decline actively from October, and after that the figure before October did not even come close.

At the same time, shipments of displays for the iPhone 14 Pro Max have been actively growing almost all the time, as well as shipments of screens for the iPhone 14 Pro. As for the base model, the figures are constantly changing, but in any case, in recent months they are often lower than for the iPhone 14 Pro. It is possible that the current-generation base iPhone will be the first such device in many years that will not be the undisputed leader in Apple sales.

Through his work, Young has access to information related to the screens, so he often knows more than ordinary insiders. In particular, he talked about 120 Hz screens in the iPhone 12 Pro and 60 Hz screens in the younger devices of the line.
