The DALL-E 2 AI Image Generator is finally available to everyone without the need to join the waitlist – so now you can just sign up and start creating AI art.
By providing the AI with a textual description of an image (which can be as generic as “a ginger cat” or as specific as “A pencil drawing of a galaxy that serves as a gateway to another universe”), DALL -E 2 create an image. The results can be mixed, but by selecting the best image from the batch created by the AI, you can guide it to create something that looks more and more like what you imagined.
However, art isn’t our specialty here at TechRadar, so we thought a much better use of DALL-E 2 was to have it show us what the best gadgets of 2023 will look like. Here are the results.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro
Apple may have just unveiled the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro smartphones, but we want to see what next year’s iPhone 15 might look like, so we turned to DALL-E to lend a hand.
As you can see below, DALL-E expects the biggest change is that Apple’s new best iPhone will feature 4 rear cameras instead of just 2. It’s unclear what each lens will be used for. , but I hope the iPhone 15 adopts the impressive main of the 14 Pro. wide-angle, ultra-wide and telephoto camera while adding one more into the mix.
However, we also wanted to know what the more premium iPhone 15 Pro would likely look like, and DALL-E once again predicts that it will feature four cameras, albeit in a bizarre new layout. To make room for larger (and hopefully more megapixel) cameras, DALL-E shows us an iPhone 15 Pro with its lenses spread across the top third of the phone. Plus, the two lights on the back suggest it’ll have a pretty powerful torch to help keep your footage well-lit even at night.
If DALL-E is correct, Apple’s 2023 will feature snappers that will rival those offered by the new Motorola Edge 30 Ultra (which has a 200MP primary camera). On the other hand, it’s just an AI. So what does he know?

The Google Pixel 8
Still in the world of smartphones, we asked DALL-E to show us their render for the Google Pixel 8. This follow-up to the Google Pixel 7, which Google is about to unveil at its October 2022 event, is going yet another times mix up the Android smartphone camera layout, but in a whole new way.
DALL-E has produced a Pixel that lacks the iconic rear camera bump that was introduced by the Google Pixel 6 and instead shows the cameras flush with the surface of the phone – delivering a completely slick smartphone.
However, another factor you might not have noticed is that this triple camera array is featured on the front of Google’s smartphone, rather than the back. While this design allows for amazing selfies, we’re concerned it’s quite distracting when trying to scroll through Twitter or watch a video on your phone.
In this case, we expect DALL-E’s prediction to be more than a little off.
The best OLED TV of 2023
Technology is more than just smartphones, we wanted to know what the best OLED TV of 2023 would look like, and DALL-E delivered the impressive display you see below.
Called TU20, it’s not clear if it’s a Sony, LG, Samsung or another brand OLED, but what’s obvious is that the display promises to deliver vivid colors and impressive dark contrast in the same scene.
Although what’s most interesting about the DALL-E design is that the TU20 has an ultra-widescreen, which means this 4K monitor will be able to deliver a 21:9 image instead of the 16:9 aspect ratio that we are used to. However, unless cinematographers choose to embrace this new viewing format, TU70 users may be stuck with large black bars on either side of the screen, as the shows and movies they watching will not fill the TV space.
We think DALL-E 2 needs to read a little more about TV technology.
The best Netflix show of 2023
What’s the use of having a great TV like the TU20 if you have nothing to watch on it? Thankfully, DALL-E has us covered with what he thinks is the best Netflix show of 2023: Niol’l.
We can’t make out the rest of the text, but the bright pink background and blond protagonist of the image give us the impression that Niol’l will be a Legally Blonde-esque subversion of the Rom-Com genre. Resse Witherspoon probably already owns the rights.
The best wireless headphones of 2023
Next, we have the DALL-E 2 render for the best wireless headphones of 2023, and these might be the best-looking gadget yet.
The actual part of the buds that go into your ear (seen to the left of the image below) looks a little crooked, but we hope this uncomfortable design will actually help them sit more securely in your ear – maybe also making these headphones are perfect to wear while you run.
Where DALL-E’s earbuds really win style points is their housing, which gives each earbud its own light capsule. It gives the whole thing a very cool sci-fi vibe.
Unfortunately, we don’t know what the audio quality is like, but just on the looks of things, we’d be happy to pick a pair of these buds over something like the Sony WF-1000XM4s.
The Quest for Oculus 3
Meta has yet to reveal if it works on the Oculus Quest 3, but given the huge success of the Oculus Quest 2 (and its promise to make a budget headset after Project Cambria), it seems more than likely. .
However, DALL-E is clearly not convinced.
When asked to create a render for the Oculus Quest 3, the AI produced a nearly featureless black design with a word on the front panel “Quiters”. Forgiving the spelling of DALL-E (and the inability to complete its U), this design suggests that DALL-E thinks Meta will quit his Oculus Quest 3 plans entirely.
Whether that’s because Meta chooses to focus on its premium line of VR headsets, or whether its entire VR business will follow the cancellations we’ve seen this year, is unclear, but the result is the same either way.
Analysis: beware of false renderings
As AI art tools improve and become more accessible to the general public, we’re likely to see a flood of computer-generated creations appear online.
Most of the examples above are clearly fake gimmicks (whether due to blatantly poor design choices, or logos and text appearing smudged and unreadable). But in 2023 and beyond, we’ll likely start to see these fake renders look more and more real until they’re indistinguishable from a photo of a real piece of tech.
We’ve always recommended that leaks be taken with a grain of salt, but this advice will become particularly useful in the years to come. Just because an image looks real doesn’t mean it’s not just a well-done fake, and with tools like DALL-E 2, more people than ever can try to fool everyone .
DALL-E 2’s artistic skills make some artists sad.
