Apple launched four new phones in the iPhone 13 series, including iPhone 13 Mini, 13, 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The iPhone 14 series will have iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The screen size of the iPhone 14 series may remain the same(like iPhone 12 and iPhone 13) as previous models; however, we can expect that a few improvements may also come in a display like a high refresh rate.

Apple this year has not offered a 120 Hz refresh rate to iPhone 13 but offers it only in the pro models that the company may bring to the base iPhone 14 variant next year.

Also, the notch display has been there for many years. The company may shift to a new design with an under-display camera for the iPhone 14.

Apple A15 Bionic is the most powerful processor on the market, and next year the company will have the A16 with more performance improvements. The A15 is based on the 5 Nm manufacturing process, and the A16 may be the first chip to use the 3 Nm manufacturing process. This can boost performance as well as battery life for the new iPhones.

Like iPhone 12 and 13 series, the upcoming iPhone series also comes with 5G connectivity, compatibility with MagSafe accessories.

We will have to wait and see if Apple goes with minor incremental changes similar to what they have done with the iPhone 13 series or take a big leap with the iPhone 14.

What to Expect from Future Smartphones 2022?

If I have to visualize the future of smartphones and concepts and ideas for 2022 - here are the top 6 future ideas that will be popular in the coming years.

The focus has been entirely shifted, from large computing devices (PC and laptop) to compelling smartphones with devices like Oneplus 9 Pro having 12 GB RAM or Samsung using its DEX technology to turn your phone into a PC.

Mobiles are quickly replacing computers and laptops and have incredible processing power. I don't have to switch on a laptop now for many tasks. Responsive website designs and Apps have made the internet an excellent place for mobiles.

Phones are no more just a mode to communicate anymore, and they are used to doing so much more and in ways never imagined before.


5G is a big deal, and we will see most phones in the above $250 price (Rs. 20,000) range launch with 5G capability in 2022.

The new phones in 2022 will have support for the 5G network and can have blazing-fast data speeds.

Great Battery Back-Up and Fast Charging

The battery life is probably the weakest part of smartphone technology, and they hardly last a day with high pixel resolution displays (Quad HD) and more power-hungry processors.

There is a need for compact batteries that can last 3-4 days with a single charge and are much more compact than the current batteries.

We have already got phones with 120 Watts charging, and even more quick charging phones will come in 2022. Also, fast wireless charging will become standard for flagship devices.

4K Bezel-less Displays

Sony already has a smartphone with a 4K display Sony Xperia Z5 - Worlds Highest 806 PPI 4K Display Smartphone Unveiled. Due to battery life constraints, 4K displays are not widespread, but improvement in battery storage can lead to the return of 4K resolution.

With Google Assist and Siri, Apple and Google are trying to bring in more artificial intelligence to mobile computing devices.

The voice recognition and contextual understanding of assistants are improving, and we can expect more powerful AI-based voice assistants in the coming years.

Bigger Cameras

We already have several phones with 108 MP camera sensors, and it is pretty likely that we will get phones with up to 192 MP cameras in the coming months. The Xiaomi Mi 12 Ultra can be one of the first phones to offer this massive camera sensor.

Virtual Reality
