Highlights

  • iPhone 13 pro max may get a fingerprint scanner inside the display
  • It is expected to have a display panel which has a 120hz refresh rate
  • Also, the iPhone 13 will have a smaller notch

The iPhone 13 series always got leaks here and there for a very long time. However, recently the number of leaks and rumours increased. As per Unbox Therapy who has shown a dummy version of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, provide us a closer look at the upcoming Apple flagship.

But this is just a part of the bulk information that we have gathered regarding the iPhone 13, which consists of the display panel which is 120hz, and also a smaller notch, an in-display fingerprint.

Let’s talk about the notch, shall we?

As per the source “UNBOX THERAPY” youtube channel we can see that the iPhone 13 dummy he had has got a smaller notch. He has also confirmed it by measuring it which measures 26.3mm whereas the current flagship iPhone 12 pro max has got around 34.6mm notch. So it’s comparatively a smaller notch much smaller than the old one. If this is true this will be a big change in the physical design of the phone since iPhone X. Apple is said to achieve this by placing the infrared flood illuminator, sensor, and dot projector in a single module.

What about the lightning port charger?

There are rumours about the removal of the lightning port, but it seems like the lightning port will stay for a few more iterations. The dummy iPhone (which the youuber had) also features a lightning port hinting towards the same.

What about the refresh rate?

Rumours around the corner say that 120Hz high refresh rate LTPO panels are being made to the iPhone 13 lineup. However, a recent leak suggests that this display tech will only be exclusive to the iPhone 13 Pro models. Another leak reported that these panels are being developed by Samsung and are called the Samsung display. The report further suggests that Samsung Electro-Mechanics will supply rigid, flexible printed circuit boards (RFPCB) to Apple. These are used to connect OLED panels to the mainboard.

What about the processor?

As always, Apple will upgrade the chipset for the upcoming iPhone 13 models. The iPhone 13 Pro Max will have an A15 Bionic chipset based on the same 5nm manufacturing process as the A14 Bionic. The new chipset is being built by TSMC and is expected to bring performance and battery improvements.

Will there be any improvements in storage?

Yes, there are rumors popping up which say that the upcoming iPhone 13 models may get up to 1TB of onboard storage. Apple will increase available storage on upcoming iPhone 13 models as the users are wishing for more onboard storage. Currently, the storage on the iPhone 12 models is capped to 512GB.

What about the wireless connectivity?

The iPhones of the future are expected to get a major upgrade in terms of wireless connectivity too. The iPhone 13 models may feature Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon X60 5G modem. This modem will expectedly be integrated into the upcoming A15 Bionic chipset thereby, saving a lot of battery life.

Any information about the Camera?

Apple smartphones have always been on top of their camera game in recent year, and the same is expected from iPhone 13 series this year too. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will have a six-element Ultra-wide lens as per the sources. The current iPhone 12 Pro setup features a five-element ultrawide lens on the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro max. This is supposed to improve the image and auto-focus capability of the devices.

Also, Apple is also looking for suppliers for a “folded lens” camera to improve optical zoom capabilities on the iPhone 13 lineup. Besides this, all upcoming iPhones are going to feature upgraded ultra-wide sensors with dedicated astrography mode.

Another report suggests that all iPhone models will feature a LiDAR sensor. It is also said that the upcoming iPhone 13s will feature Sensor-Shift optical image stabilization. This should hugely benefit the video and image stabilization of all models.

Launch and pricing?

Well there is still no announcement or any leak regarding the launch of the product but we are ready to show it up when there’s any news.

The previous flagship from Apple the iPhone 12 Pro Max, had a starting price of Rs 125,000 and went up to Rs 150,000. Keeping that figures and the upcoming changes in mind, we expect the iPhone 13 Pro Max to have a starting price of 130,000, and might scale up to 165,000 for the top variant.

Well that’s some attractive features for now. Will be posting some more tech and gaming news again.. Until then
