Android earthquake alerts seem to be better
Android phones and iPhones are the giants of the gadget world. Both terms are well known for showing advanced and dynamic features on board. But a recent tweet shows that the 2023 Android phones could take design cues from the iPhone 15 Pro.
Today, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo shared his thoughts on the upcoming flagship iPhone models – iPhone 15 and 15 Pro. According to the analyst’s predictions, the respective high-end Apple phones will adopt solid power buttons and volume rockers.
For your information, these solid buttons would be similar to those found on the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone SE 2 and SE 3 models. This will include the Taptic Engines mechanism on the internal sides.
As a result, pressing the volume or switch buttons, the user will feel a solid physical touch on their device.
Until now, the company was already using Taptic Engines. However, this structure will increase these engines from one to three units. This will make the initial components of the device considerably efficient and make it more reliable.
“My latest investigation indicates that the volume button and power button of two new high-end iPhone 15/2H23 models may adopt a solid-state button design (similar to the home button design of iPhone 7/8/SE2 and 3) to replace the physical/mechanical button design,” Kuo said.
Android will also follow this design!
Moreover, the observer said that this design will not only stay in Apple’s pocket, but will also revolve around Android phones. We could probably see flagship Android phones adopting the iPhone 15 Pro design on their surface.
Why is that? Kuo said that according to assumptions, high-end Android devices will follow in Apple’s footsteps in this case, to increase their market value. In the end, it would be a positive sign for the American manufacturer if this happened.
Android after Apple – no surprise!
It shouldn’t be surprising to see Android walking Apple’s path. We have seen many times that Android makers have taken some or other ideas from Apple. A good example could be the fall of the headphone jack of devices.
Apple was the first to abandon the headphone jack mechanism. Although at that time, various companies, including Google, mocked the American technology manufacturer. But things didn’t take long to bring global change.
In 2017, the Pixel 2 series debuted without a headphone jack. And soon, other tech giants also started following this trend.
Something similar happens with eSIM technology. Again, Apple is the one launching the eSIM thread. And there is no doubt that Android manufacturers will soon adopt this technology.
So far, Kuo has not made any statement about which Android tech maker will be the first to showcase the iPhone 15 Pro design on its smartphone models. A name that comes to mind for the design of a phone is Samsung.
Therefore, Samsung phones are accustomed to showcasing eye-catching layouts. So, chances are we’ll find an iPhone-inspired look in the upcoming Samsung series. On the other hand, Google may also display this change in its Pixel 8 lineup.
Let’s see how the changes will pass from Apple to Android devices.
