In the latest claim by noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the upcoming Apple iPhone 13 Pro model will feature a 120Hz LTPO display that is supposed to draw a lesser amount of power, leading to longer battery life. Kuo’s claims were reported first by MacRumors.
Additionally, all the Apple iPhone 13 models are expected to have smaller notches. Kuo also added that the iPhone 13 lineup will consist of four models only, just like the iPhone 12 series. All of them will come with lightning connectors and will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 modem to improve upon the 5G networking capabilities.
Rumours about a 120Hz refresh rate on the new iPhone seem likely to be true as previous reports have also claimed as such. Apart from Ming-Chi Kuo, such has also been claimed by Ross Young, a display industry analyst and leaker Jon Prosser.
Kuo also added that this time, all the
iPhone 13 models could come with sensor-shift image stabilisation as seen only in the
iPhone 12 Pro Max. Also, the
iPhone 13 Pro models may sport an improved Ultra Wide Camera lens with an f/1.8 aperture and autofocus (the iPhone 12 models had f/2.4), something also claimed before in another report.
Kuo claims that this time, Apple is going to increase the size of the iPhone batteries. With the LTPO technology to conserve power and the bigger battery, iPhone 13 buyers could expect the juice on their devices to last longer, though nothing can be said with certainty right now. A bigger battery is also going to make the iPhone a bit heavier.
