Samsung screen data for iPhone 13 Pro
It has been the Asian medium The Elec that affirms that the production of the iPhone 13 Pro screens it has already begun. They confirm, as we previously knew, that Samsung Display will be in charge of carrying out this manufacturing process according to Apple’s requirements. The Korean company has been providing panels to Californians for years, more specifically since the iPhone X, the first Apple smartphone to incorporate an OLED panel after years with the always efficient IPS technology.
Something that was rumored a lot for the iPhone 12 and was finally ruled out is that they had a ProMotion panel. This means that the refresh rate is 120 Hz, that is, it is updated 120 times per second giving a greater sense of fluidity when scrolling through the system, consuming multimedia content or enjoying video games adapted to it. It seems that this technology will finally be integrated into this year’s ‘Pro’ models, thus adding Apple to an increasingly long list of mobile devices with this type of technology.
Regarding screen sizes they are expected to remain 6.1 and 6.7 inches as has already happened this year. The notch reduction, which is expected to finally occur also in 2021, would not prevent that diagonal from remaining the same, although with an obvious greater use by reducing that element in which the Face ID sensors will continue to be integrated.
And what about the normal models?
In addition to these two high-end iPhone models, Apple is expected to re-launch two versions that would replace the iPhone 12 and 12 mini. And as also happens with the ‘Pro’ models, these would have the same size as seen in 2020: 5.4 and 6.1 inches. Yes, these they would not have 120 Hz refresh rate, this being the main difference between the models that the company launches this year, since if we look at the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, both have identical screens with slight differences in terms of resolution.
In this case the manufacturer will be LG, another Korean company that also maintains a very good relationship with Apple and has also been in charge of supplying OLED panels on previous occasions. It is also said from The Elec that they have also started production to reach the month of September in time.
And yes, it will be again that month of September in which these iPhones are officially presented unless some mishap arises. Last year everything was delayed to October and November due to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, but in 2021 it seems that the situation in the factories is already under control. The market launch is also expected to take place that month, so it would be a little over 3 months before they are official.
