Even though Apple’s 2022 iPhone is still months away from release, we’ve started to learn more about the iPhone 15 that will be released next year. The iPhone 14 series is expected to get rid of the notch with a new dual punch-hole design, but the camera could move under the display with the iPhone 15 next year. According to a new report from South Korean publication TheElec, the iPhone 15 Pro could use an under-display solution for the front-facing camera array.
The next-generation under-display camera developed by Samsung Display and OTI Lumionics will be used in the iPhone 15 Pro model next year, according to the report. The aforementioned under-display camera is expected to debut first on the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold5, then on the iPhone 15 Pro, and possibly the Pro Max.

Samsung is reportedly working on a new generation of organic cathode patterning material with OTI Lumionics (CPM). The new material enables Apple to open “microscopic transparent windows in the cathode and OLED pixel layers,” effectively making the display transparent and allowing the selfie camera and Face ID sensors to be placed beneath it. As a result, no notch or hole-punch screen real estate would be available.
It’s unclear whether the standard model will have the same under-display camera, a notch, or a dual punch-hole design. Non-Pro models will keep the notch for another year while Pro models transition to the new design.
As is customary, the next iPhone lineup will be released in September. Apple may drop the mini iPhone this year in favor of a larger iPhone 14 Max, according to rumors.
