iPhone 14 Pro will feature a pill-shaped hole punch camera and Face ID under the display

Yet another source has corroborated that iPhone 14 Pro will feature a hole punch camera and Face ID under the display. Tweeted by DylanDKT, who has a reliable track record, the new iPhone 14 Pro will apparently have a pill-shaped camera cut out.

We have seen pill-shaped cutouts in smartphones by the likes of Samsung, Vivo and others, so it will be interesting to see how Apple differentiates its cut out. What’s more interesting is that this will be the first time that Apple would be moving biometric authentication components under the display.

iPhone 14 Pro might get rid of the notch by opting for a pill-shaped hole punch

As per Dylan’s tweet, moving Face ID hardware under the display will not have any impact on its performance in iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max:

I am able to corroborate information regarding a hole punch camera for the pro models of the iPhone 14. Face ID hardware will be placed under the display. As a reassurance to any concerns, the functionality of these sensors have not been negatively affected by this change.

In another tweet, Dylan confirmed that the camera hole punch will be in the shape of a pill. This means that Apple could potentially include the Face ID sensor, alongside the camera, proximity sensor, and light sensor, while moving the rest of its hardware below the display. This is a sure way of not impacting its performance at all. There have been no rumors of Apple including a dual-camera setup for the front-camera, so the pill shape would not make sense otherwise.

Ming-Chi Kuo has also said that Apple will be shipping some iPhone 14 models with a hole punch display. Other sources like The Elec and Bloomberg have also reported on the new camera cut out in iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

It has also been reported that iPhone 14 will feature a 48MP camera and 8K video capture and 8GB RAM. The new 2022 iPhone models will also get rid of the notch and camera bumps, feature a new A16 Bionic chip, heavier titanium casing, and a 2TB storage variant.
