iPhone 13 ‘Pro’ models may come with 120Hz LTPO displays
Even though it hasn’t been long since the launch of the iPhone 12 series of phones, there is information coming in about the next set of flagship Apple smartphones, the iPhone 13. Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 13 series in September next year, without any delays as recently reported.
The iPhone 13 series is tipped to follow the same trend as the iPhone 12 series with four models – iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max – and screen sizes for these have been leaked. Additionally, the size of the notch on iPhone models is said to have been reduced, offering more screen real estate. Finally, iPhone 13 series is tipped to come with support for Wi-Fi 6E standard.
As per a new report coming from Korea, Apple is all set to launch its two top models of the next iPhone with 120Hz OLED displays. Samsung Display and LG Display will be the Prime suppliers for these iPhone 13 panels.
As per the leaked information, the top-2 Pro variants, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, will feature the 120Hz ProMotion display.
The base variants iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 will likely feature LTPS while the Pro variants as mentioned above will feature 120Hz LTPO display. LTPS is Low-Temperature Polysilicon while the LTPO is Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide.
This is not the first time that there are rumors about the iPhone 13 series. A few weeks ago a popular tipster Jon Prosser had stated that Apple is busy building a next-gen iPhone right now which will be completely portless and will only charge via MagSafe. The information was revealed by the tipster on Twitter.
However, he even said that Apple does not plan a transition of turning all iPhones next year into wireless ones. He added that MagSafe is the bridge between lightning and portless. It’s also the way Apple can keep things somewhat proprietary without giving in to something as universal as USB-C. The tipster further added that this is a piece of information is coming from a rock-solid source and had been told to him months ago, with the company remaining on track on this development.
The report also further adds that Apple does not plan on refreshing the iPhone SE in the foreseeable future.
Another leak from Creativebloq states that Apple may reduce the size of the notch for the iPhone 13 by reducing the size of the chip used for the front-facing camera. This would lead to more screen real estate on the iPhone 13, but it is unclear if all the other iPhone 13 series models would get the same treatment.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 13 series in September next year, without any delays as recently reported.
For now, there is little known about the upcoming iPhones, however, users expect more information about the next iPhones to start coming in as we move into the new year. Though, Apple has not officially shared any information on the iPhone 13 series yet.
