Although the screen size seems to be the same, Apple will have certain improvements in visibility, specifically 120Hz ProMotion display technology.
Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that the next-generation iPhone will likely adopt LTPO display technology to reduce power consumption, trusted analyst on Apple rumors. As a result, Apple will solve the battery problem to equip a high-frequency scan screen for the new iPhone.
Apple first applied LTPO (low-temperature polysilicone and oxide display, or low-temperature polysilicone and oxide screens) technology on the Apple Watch Series 4, so it is entirely true that they continue to apply this technology on the iPhone. reasonable. What about rabbit ears? Information about how Apple will shrink the size of the notch has been around for years, ever since the iPhone X first came out. But so far, there hasn’t been any change. On the iPhone 2021, Apple is expected to change the layout of the internal components, making the TrueDepth camera smaller, thereby minimizing the size of the notch.
Regarding the design of the camera cluster, it is possible that Apple will cover an additional layer of sapphire glass on top of the current 3 lenses to form a single cluster. Recent sources said that the camera module of the new iPhone, temporarily called iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max, will be the same size, indicating that the camera hardware of the two devices will be similar. In addition, LiDAR sensors may be equipped for other iPhone lines, not just the Pro version. In addition to hardware, Apple will certainly have upgrades related to software and algorithms to help improve the quality of photos.
It is almost certain that the next-generation iPhone will be equipped with the A15 Bionic processor. It’s still too early to get details about this chip, but some say it will be manufactured using the same 5nm process as the chop A14 Bionic. Possibly, the process that Apple will use to manufacture the A15 Bionic is called 5nm +, which improves performance compared to older processors, while improving battery consumption.
For the current iPhone 12 series, only devices sold in the US market are equipped with 5G mmWave antennas. However, Apple according to some reports that it is placing a large order for this type of antenna, suggesting that this device may appear on the iPhone 13 in more markets.
The next-generation iPhone is expected to remove the lightning port, and will not replace it with any other connection, or in other words, the device will not have any ports. Sources from Bloomberg said that Apple is currently in the process of internally testing the iPhone without a connection port. Earlier in 2019, Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple would launch an iPhone without a lightning port by 2021.
Touch ID returns with a different shape
Touch ID will return on the iPhone 13, working in tandem with Face ID. Ming-Chi Kuo in August 2019 also announced that Apple will launch an iPhone with both Face ID and Touch ID in 2021. Apple already has a patent on the design of the fingerprint sensor under the screen, so maybe the new Touch ID will be very different from what we know so far. It’s not clear what is the motivation for Apple to bring Touch ID back, but COVID 19 could be part of the problem. Users have really struggled in this era of always having to wear a mask, while the phone is unlocked with the face. Apple has given many solutions to solve this problem, but perhaps the most radical is still a hardware equipment on the new device.
Release date and price
According to information from Mr. Kou, iPhone 13 will likely be sold from September 2021. The price of the new iPhone is similar to the previous generation, still rarely leaked before launch time.
