ProMotion is set to remain exclusive to the Apple iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max
Just a day after alleged glass panels for the iPhone 15 series, a new report revolves around the technical side of the displays. According to this, the new iPhones should once again limit high refresh rates and always-on displays (AOD) to the upcoming Pro models, as with the iPhone 14 series. In addition, according to the tip, mass production of the iPhone 15 is imminent.
The tipster also stated that Apple is limiting 120Hz LTPO displays to the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. The move comes as little surprise as Apple followed the same approach with last year’s iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, as well as the predecessors of the iPhone 13 Pro generation in 2021.
Samsung Galaxy F14 5G shows up with Exynos 1330 in Google Play Console
Samsung introduced the Galaxy A14 and A14 5G at the beginning of the year and today the Galaxy M14 followed. Next up seems to be the Samsung Galaxy F14 5G with similar specs. The device, model number m14x, was spotted in Google Play Console with an Exynos 1330 chipset and 6GB of RAM. The same setup powers the Galaxy A14 and M14 as well.
According to the entry, the Samsung Galaxy F14 5G already runs Android 13 and the display has a FullHD+ resolution. The diagonal is not mentioned. However, since both the M14 and the A14 use 6.6-inch LCD displays with 90 Hz, we assume identical data for the new Galaxy F14 5G.
Previously, Samsung smartphones with model numbers SM-E146B and SM-M146B were certified with a minimum battery capacity of 5,830 mAh. Thus, the typical capacity should be 6,000 mAh. One might assume that the Galaxy F14 is nothing more than a Galaxy M14 for other markets.
Google I/O 2023 starts on May 10th
This year’s Google I/O, the annual developer conference of the search engine group, will take place on May 10th. Google boss Sundar Pichai revealed the date on Twitter and also revealed the usual venue. As in previous years, the event will take place at the Shoreline Amphitheatre directly across from Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California.
The upcoming Google I/O should be the first in four years with personal attendance. However, it will continue to be broadcast via live stream so that interested parties from all over the world can watch. In addition to new details about the Android 14 beta, which has already been published, we can also look forward to official information about the Google Pixel Fold and the first Pixel Tablet. A new version of the Pixel Buds Pro wouldn’t be a surprise either, as the current model was unveiled at the last I/O.
Of course, chatbots and AI are also on the agenda, one of the biggest topics of 2023 so far. Therefore, the official launch of Google Bard, the upcoming competitor of ChatGPT, would also be conceivable.
