iPhone 14 Pro models will have much better core specs than regular models: Kuo

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who in recent days has become an active Twitter user, has posted some new iPhone 14 series specs. First, he reiterates what we have been hearing for quite some time now: there will be no mini model this year and the lineup could look like this: a 6.1-inches iPhone 14, a 6.7-inches iPhone 14 Max, a 6.1-inches iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inches iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Per earlier rumors, the notch on the Pro models will be replaced with a dual pill and hole cutout design and they may also retire the main 12MP rear camera in favor of a 48MP camera that will further cement their reputation as the best camera smartphones.
Apple is said to be working on a new A16 Bionic processor which should be slightly faster than the A15 chip that powers the iPhone 13 series as well as the iPhone SE 3, considering it will likely be manufactured using the more advanced 4nm tech.
Turns out, this chip will only power two new models. Kuo says Apple will only equip the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max with the A16 Bionic, and the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will stick with the older A15 Bionic, which is plenty fast.

He also says that the lineup will start at 6GB RAM, which would be an improvement given that entry-level iPhone 13 models have 4GB of RAM. Here too Apple will maintain a distinction between the regular and the Pro models, as Kuo says only the Pro models will get the faster LPDDR 5 RAM which competitors have been using for quite some time and the other two models will continue using the LPDDR 4X tech.

There have also been conflicting rumors about whether all the new models will get 120Hz screens, which are currently exclusive to the Pros. The Pro models may also get a new titanium alloy chassis design that would make them more durable and scratch-resistant.

Looking at all these rumors, it looks like the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will be improved versions of the regular iPhone 13 models, and Apple seems to have taken the inspiration from the Fan Edition Samsung models.

We will have to wait until September to find out if this rumor is true, but given that Kuo is usually spot on with his predictions, this rumor is bound to disappoint some fans.
