iPhone 14 getting high quality selfie cam by LG
The much-awaited iPhone 14 series will reportedly integrate selfie cam modules produced by LG Innotek. Initially, these cams were supposed to be introduced with the iPhone 15 models, yet Apple experienced some quality assurance problems with the usual Chinese supplier and needed to switch to a new one to make up for the supply deficit, as per reports. Apple also uses selfie cams made by Sharp, and these will still be featured in the iPhone 14. If the reports are to be believed, the plan for iPhone 14 was to integrate a low-cost selfie cam, but because of the quality issues, Apple had no other option but to switch to LG Innotek’s solution, given the time constraints. The LG cams are said to be of higher quality, almost matching that of rear cameras, and will introduce the autofocus function to iPhone selfie cams for the first time.
