In a new research note sent out to investors, veteran Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted an all-new iPhone lineup for the second half of 2022, with two low-end 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models and two high-end 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch flagships (via 9to5Mac).

The analyst also believes Apple will finally introduce under-display fingerprint technology or embedded Touch ID in iPhones, while also upgrading the rear camera to 48MP.

In terms of marketing names, Apple’s 2022 iPhone lineup could look something like: iPhone 14, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The analyst also says the iPhone 14 Max will have the lowest price ever for a 6.7-inch iPhone.

We reiterate our previous key specifications forecast for 2H22 iPhone models, namely that Apple will launch two high-end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) and two low- end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) in 2H22.

We believe the growth drivers for the new 2H22 iPhones will come from 1) the potential for under-display fingerprint support (using Apple’s own technology), 2) the lowest price ever for a large (6.7″) iPhone (we expect it to be under USD 900), and 3) a wide camera upgrade to 48MP for high-end models.

Kuo expects the iPhone 14 Max to be priced at under US $900. The current iPhone lineup includes the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, which is priced at US $1,099.
