Multiple leaks on the iPhone 14 indicate that Apple’s upcoming entry-level iPhone will be virtually indistinguishable from its predecessor. But now support is growing for an unexpected improvement that has the potential to leave competitors in the dust.
According to Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), all iPhone 14 models will include Samsung’s M12 OLED material set display technology. This comes as a surprise, given that the feature was omitted from Samsung’s premium Galaxy S22 Ultra.
The claim from The Elec from earlier, which stated that Apple was mulling over whether or not to use M12, also provides support for the new information. But nobody genuinely anticipated that it would be employed in each and every type of the iPhone 14, and if it weren’t for Young’s extraordinary track record, I would have been cynical myself,
What is M12, exactly? Essentially, it is made up of the dopant, host, and prime elements of the red, green, and blue pixels of OLED displays. Display performance, color accuracy, and energy efficiency are all improved by M12. This last feature is critical because smartphones’ displays are a significant source of power consumption. For one thing, there have been rumors that the iPhone 14’s battery capacity will be similar to that of the iPhone 13 series.
So why didn’t Samsung include this technology in its Galaxy S22 range of products? According to The Elec, cost-cutting was the main factor. That may be difficult for some Galaxy lovers to accept, given that the Galaxy S22 Ultra costs nearly twice as much as the iPhone 14.
Since the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Plus employ M11 (as in 2021 models), the normal Galaxy S22 only has M10, a generation originally used by the Galaxy S20 line in 2020, resulting in the two devices using different generations.
Although the price of the iPhone 14 is expected to rise across the board, Apple devotees will point to all the minor details the business gets right with its products. And it appears that this will be yet another.
