iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max to have 120 Hz AMOLED screens made by Samsung. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max Price, Specifications, Release date and Reviews Here
iPhone 13 Pro & iPhone 13 Pro Max
We’ve been hearing the fact that iPhones are going 120Hz this year for a while now, and today a new report from Korea basically confirms that, while adding intriguing new information.
Only the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are said to get the new LTPO AMOLED displays with 120Hz refresh rates, and these will be made exclusively by Samsung Display. Not only that, but Samsung Electro-Mechanics will supply the Rigid and Flexible Printed Circuit Boards (RFPCB).
They are used to connect the OLED panel to the main board. RFPCB is rigid but can be folded, allowing for more convenient product designs (no unsightly “chins”), as well as faster transmission of electrical signals. RFPCBs are more expensive than more traditional FPCBs.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics had considered exiting the RFPCB business last year, because it had not made a profit in the past two years. The last product it supplied boards for was the iPhone 12. And apparently, a departure could still occur after the iPhone 13 generation.
Samsung Display is expected to supply 110 million panels for iPhones this year, followed by LG Display with 50 million and BOE with 9 million.

A mini iPhone 13 prototype has been leaked, showing a new diagonal camera module.
More evidence has emerged showing smaller notches on the iPhone 13.
IPhone 13 release date
If the iPhone 13 release date follows Apple’s pattern for previous releases, we could see this device hit shelves on the fourth Friday of September 2021. That would be September 24.
Despite the coronavirus-related delays faced by the iPhone 12, which delayed its launch until October 13, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone 13 should return to a normal release schedule in 2021.
It’s certainly good news that the A15 Bionic chip rumored to power the iPhone 13 was ahead of schedule. That chip will begin production later this month.
We’ll get our first hint of iPhone 13 features in June when Apple unveils iOS 15 at its Worldwide Developers Conference. WWDC 2021 begins June 7, Apple says.
IPhone 13 Price:
Various rumors suggest that the iPhone 13 comes in the same four sizes as the iPhone 12: a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max. .
Because the iPhone 12 mini hasn’t sold well, rumors suggested that Apple might drop the iPhone 13 mini. However, subsequent reports have suggested that there will be an iPhone 13 mini, so let’s assume we will see four models in the fall, at least for now. (Apple is reportedly developing a foldable iPhone, but the latest rumor suggests that an iPhone Flip will take two years.)
As for how much the iPhone 13 will cost, we would expect pricing to be within the iPhone 12 range: $ 699, $ 799, $ 999, and $ 1,099, respectively. Apple tends to keep the price of each new generation of iPhone relatively close to the one that preceded it.
IPhone 13 Specifications
As night follows day, we can also expect a chip upgrade for the iPhone 13 over its predecessor. This is likely to come in the form of the A15 Bionic, a successor to the very powerful A14 Bionic on the iPhone 12. Production reportedly begins on the A15 in May.
This new system on a chip (SoC) could be a reasonable upgrade on the A14 Bionic, probably increasing the overall performance and efficiency. A major upgrade doesn’t seem likely until iPhone 14, when Apple could make a chip based on a 4-nanometer process node. Currently, the A14 Bionic inside the iPhone 12 is a 5nm chip.
On the storage front, we can expect the iPhone 13 to range from 64GB to 512GB, although a new analyst report has the iPhone 13 slated to get up to 1TB of storage. That would give you the most onboard storage an iPhone has ever had.
The iPhone 13 could also get a big boost in terms of wireless connectivity. Documentation of Apple’s deal with Qualcomm revealed that Apple has plans to use Qualcomm’s X60 5G modem in upcoming iPhones, which will likely include the iPhone 13.
This is important because the X60 5nm modem can be integrated directly into a phone’s chipset, which means it takes up less space and consumes less battery. Also, 5G performance should be better as the modem can combine 5G mmWave and sub-6GHz networks simultaneously. A separate report from Digitizes confirms that the iPhone 13 will receive the new Qualcomm X60 modem.
Additionally, the iPhone 13 is anticipated to come with Wi-Fi 6E, a variation of the Wi-Fi 6 standard that will support even faster wireless speeds.
A Digitizes report hinted that the iPhone 13 could adopt liquid crystal polymer circuit boards for imaging purposes, resulting in faster data transmission. The addition of LCP boards, along with 5G connectivity, has the potential to accelerate applications such as live streaming or augmented reality.
When it comes to storage, we don’t expect any updates on the iPhone 12. As such, we predict that the iPhone 13 will come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB variants. Jon Prosser has claimed that the iPhone 13 Pro will come with up to 1TB of internal storage.
The iPhone 12 models did not surprise in our battery life test. Only the iPhone 12 Pro Max really impressed with its great battery. However, another report by Ming-Chi Kuo on the so-called soft battery technology in the iPhone 13 claimed that the new iPhones could offer a higher battery capacity without increasing the design footprint. Apple could also choose to offer similar capacity in even slimmer designs.
