Analyst: potential demand for the unreleased iPhone 14 is growing in China

In a note to clients — as noted by AppleInsider — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says potential demand for the unreleased iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro series is continuing to grow in China.

This is likely because Apple “almost dominates” the high-end smartphone market in China after Huawei exited the 5G market in the wake of a U.S. ban that left the company unable to source many of its core components and technologies. The gap left by Huawei means that there are a greater number of potential iPhone users in the market than there were before, Kuo said.

Here are some of the rumors about the iPhone 14 line-up:

° Some models may cost US$100 more than their iPhone 13 counterparts.

° Apple make its latest A16 processor exclusive to the Pro models in the iPhone 14 lineup.

° At least some of the models will be eSIM-only. 

° The ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ will contain 8GB of RAM.

° Some will sport 120GHz displays.

° The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models will have a hole + pill design.

° The top two models have also have OLED screens.

° They will support the Wi-Fi 6E standard. 

° Black, white, blue, red and purple will be the color options for the iPhone 14, while graphite, gold, silver and purple will be available on the iPhone 14 Pro.

° There will be a new purple colorway for both iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro that shifts in tone depending on the lighting.
