How will iPhone 13 and 13 Pro differ from each other? Apple is rumored to be working on improving the display. Thus several shortcomings of the iPhone 12 could be eliminated. But will this optimization affect all models?
According to a current report from South Korea, Apple is planning a significant upgrade in the display area for the iPhone 13, reports GizmoChina. However, compared to the previous iPhone 12, the optimized screens will only be used in the two flagship smartphones. These are most likely the devices that will appear as “iPhone 13 Pro” and “iPhone 13 Pro Max”.
More pictures with the same energy consumption
Accordingly, the screen of the iPhone 13 Pro (Max) should offer the refresh rate of 120 Hz. In addition, the display allegedly comes with so-called LTPO technology. LTPO stands for “Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide”. This is intended to regulate the energy consumption, which is also increased due to the high frequency, so that the 120 Hz does not come at the expense of the battery life.
iPhone 13 and 13 mini, however, should be equipped with an LPTS display. The refresh rate of these two models is supposedly 60 Hz. This means that Apple would probably not upgrade these devices compared to their predecessors. The displays of all models should be as large as their iPhone 12 counterparts.
iPhone 13 with always-on display?
A similar report recently suggested that Apple is finally introducing 120 Hz displays with the iPhone 13. With this, Apple would remove a major disadvantage that the current flagships have compared to the Android competition. 120 Hz are now the flagship standard at Samsung, Xiaomi and Co.
The low refresh rate is mentioned again and again when it comes to the areas in which Apple still has to catch up. Apple could also introduce an always-on display – another feature that Android smartphones have been offering for a long time.
The iPhone 13 could also mark another design turning point: According to rumors, Apple will do without the Lightning connector in the future. This means that the iPhone no longer has a physical port after the headphone jack has been omitted. Accordingly, you can also prepare yourself for the fact that there will soon no longer be any cables in the box of the Apple smartphones.
