iPhone 13: finally a reduced notch!
Everything that is written and said, at the end of winter, on an iPhone that will not appear until the beginning of fall or at the very end of summer of the same year, is necessarily to be taken with a grain of salt. However, rumors about the iPhone 13 have gained in strength in recent days.
Already, and it is perfectly logical if we look at what Apple has deployed as a commercial strategy recently concerning its headed smartphone, we will talk about a range made up of four versions of the same product, as for the iPhone 12. Despite the success relative to the Mini version, Apple should continue in this direction. We also evoke, for the most posh of iterations, the arrival of a storage of 1 TB (1000 GB), a first on an iPhone.
It will not be the only one: it is a question, finally, of reducing the notch that has been hanging around the top of iPhone screens for three years to replace it initially with something less unsightly and then probably, eventually, by a perforated or punched screen of the front camera sensor, like what the competition tends to generalize. Screens which, until now limited to a refresh rate of 60 Hz on the mobiles of Cupertino, should finally move upmarket on this plan, since one evokes the arrival of panels 120 Hz (much more fluid and natural).
We also mention the arrival of LTPO technology on the most opulent iPhone 13 at least. This techno, spelled out “low-temperature polycrystalline oxide thin-film transistor” is not entirely new in the Apple ecosystem, since it is already present on the Apple Watch. Its goal ? To curb the energy appetite of the screen, which would henceforth always be on (like the “Always On Display” mode on Android), without draining the battery too quickly, by dynamically controlling the frequency of the panel. To ensure a decent autonomy mattress, we still mention the arrival of batteries with a much higher capacity on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
An improvement in the photo capabilities of the back sensors should also be part of the game, while we also mention the arrival of Touch ID 2.0. In terms of design, on the other hand, nothing significant has yet filtered, but nothing indicates at this stage that Apple wants to initiate a stylistic break with its iPhone made in 2021.
Confirmation in a few months.
