The analyst believes the next generation smartphone will feature a selfie camera with autofocus and a larger aperture.
The front camera of four new iPhone 14 models in 2H22 would likely upgrade to AF (autofocus) & about f/1.9 aperture (vs. iPhone 13's FF (fixed-focus) and f/2.2).
This would result in a better low light performance and more depth of field.
AF support and a lower f-number can provide a better shallow depth-of-field effect for selfie/portrait mode. In addition, AF can also enhance the focus effect for FaceTime/video call/live streaming.
Apple's iPhone 14 is shaping up to offer significant photography improvements with the rear camera rumored to get a new 48MP wide lens that can record 8K video. Alleged specs here. Unfortunately, this will result in an even larger camera bump.
The next generation smartphone is also said to feature a new 'pill + hole' cutout design that will replace the notch on the new Pro models. Additionally, the iPhone 14 Pro models will likely get a new A16 processor; whereas, the iPhone 14 models are said to continue using the A15.
