- Kuo thinks design changes and better cameras could attract more buyers towards the upcoming iPhones
In a potentially game-changing development for the smartphone industry, Apple is on the brink of outpacing its rivals. Industry experts believe that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 15 series, scheduled to launch on September 12th, could position the Cupertino giant at the forefront of the global smartphone market.
Experts are hopeful about the new iPhones, especially the Pro Max version, which might have a periscope lens – first time on iPhone. These promising prospects lead analysts to speculate that Apple could potentially overtake Samsung’s position as the leading smartphone brand.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Samsung’s sales dropped by 10% last year. They’re expected to sell around 220 million phones in the next year. On the other hand, Apple could grow by 10%, selling about 250 million units during the same time. Kuo thinks design changes and better cameras could attract more buyers, not only for the Pro models but also for the regular and Plus models of the iPhone 15 series.
Furthermore, according to leaks and rumours, the upcoming iPhone 15 series might come with USB Type-C, and the Pro models are expected to feature the new A17 chip. The iPhone 15 and 15 Plus are said to replace the big old notch with the latest Dynamic Island, which was introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro lineup last year. Apple is also likely to change the Pro Max moniker to the new Ultra tag.
