Recent rumors about the iPhone 14 series suggest that the models will ditch the notch for a hole punch and pill cutout. However, that will not be the only change to the front of the device. According to a new report, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature 20% thinner bezels.
CAD renders reveal iPhone 14 Pro Max could feature 20% thinner display bezels
New CAD renders shared by the Twitter account ShrimpApplePro (@VNchocoTaco) show the iPhone 14 Pro Max with a hole-punch + pill cutout design which is in line with some previous CAD renders we have seen from 91Mobiles and Max Weinbach. In addition to the renders, the leaker also shared specific measurements for the device.
As per the measurements, the iPhone 14 Pro Max’s bezels will be 1.95mm thick, down from the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s 2.42mm bezels. However, the source notes that the change might not be visible to the eye as the measurement does not take into account the 1.15mm thickness of the stainless steel frame around the display.
The device itself is expected to have a height of 160.71mm, a width of 78.53mm (with the side button), and a depth of 12.16mm (including the camera bump). The CAD renders also showcase a larger rear camera bump which has increased in thickness from 3.60mm to 4.18mm.
Apart from the changes mentioned above, the design and layout of the device are virtually the same as iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro. The changes shown in these CAD renders can be corroborated by previous reports from Mark Gurman, Jon Prosser, DylanDKT, and TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple is expected to unveil its upcoming flagship iPhone lineup in fall 2022 with four models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max in place of the mini, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The Cupertino tech giant will most likely debut a new A16 Bionic chip, but reports suggest it will be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max only. It has also been reported that the lineup will feature 8GB RAM, a heavier titanium casing, and a 2TB storage variant.
