Apple is expecting to launch the iPhone 13 series later this year. Just like its predecessors, this series will also include two iPhone 13 Pro models. According to reports, the smartphones will reportedly feature displays provided by Samsung Display. Moreover, these displays will offer a 120Hz refresh rate offering a smooth scrolling experience. However, this is not the first we hearing of this particular display.
In March, noted analysts Ming-Chi Kuo, Ross Young, as well as tipsters Jon Prosser and Max Weinbach claimed the same. According to them, iPhone 13 Pro models will come with low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) 120Hz displays. However, the latest claims come from the South Korean blog The Elec, via Macrumors. They mention it will use RFPCB, and sport LTPO thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED panels which will be provided by Samsung Display.
On the other hand, in December, a report mentions iPhone 13 Pro models could feature a 6.1-inch 120Hz LTPO OLED display and a 6.7-inch 120Hz LTPO OLED display, respectively. It also suggested that this year’s iPhones will have a smaller notch as compared to previous models.
In detail, Apple will also use Radio Frequency Printed Circuit Boards (RFPCB) on the iPhone 13 Pro models. The standard models will come with Flexible Printed Circuit Boards (FPCB). RF PCB is both rigid and can be folded. Additionally, it allows for more convenient product designs and faster transmission of electric signals. The use of LTPO panels will help conserve some batteries as it turns off individual pixels when not in use. The company can also launch the upcoming iPhone 13 Pro with Always-On Display (AoD).
As rumored before the cutout shows the notch to feature all its sensors towards the lower side and speaker grille right on top. For now, in the iPhone 12 series, the speaker grille is placed right at the center of the notch, with sensors on either side. We will let you know more on the iPhone 13 Pro models as more news surfaces.
