I believe there are apple fans who have been paying attention to Mingmei Infinity until now. In October 2020, Apple brought the iPhone 12 series. A few days ago, according to news from a number of technology media, according to market research firm CounterPoint’s monitoring, the overall iPhone shipments in the fourth quarter of 2020 increased by 21% year-on-year. This was mainly due to the strong performance of the iPhone 12 in December. The enthusiasm has not passed. Judging from the performance in the first six weeks after its release, the iPhone 12 is also better than the previous one, except for the second week, which is 38% less than the iPhone 11 in the other five weeks. Therefore, it is very obvious that, driven by the iPhone 12 series, industry insiders are also relatively optimistic about the overall shipments of Apple mobile phones in 2020. After the iPhone 12 series, the iPhone 13, which will debut in 2021, also arouses users’ expectations.
Now the time has entered 2021. Generally speaking, Apple will release a new iPhone in September. It is still early to release the iPhone13 series, but the news about the iPhone13 series has already begun.
First of all, before the release of the iPhone 12 series, there was news that the iPhone 12 Pro series would use a high refresh rate screen. There was indeed evidence that Apple tested a high refresh rate screen on the iPhone 12 Pro Max engineering machine, but later due to battery life The reason, Apple still gave up on the iPhone12 Pro series of high refresh rate screen. This is not fruitful. Friends are also pinning the high brush of Apple mobile phones on the iPhone in 2021. According to the Korean media ETNews, Apple will still release four iPhones in the fall in 2021, temporarily called the iPhone13 series. There are 4 iPhone13 series Models, and will continue the existing layout.
This also means that the four iPhone13 models will be named iPhone13 mini, iPhone13, iPhone13 Pro, and iPhone13 Pro Max.
Not only that, it was revealed that the screen size of the iPhone 13 will also continue the existing specifications, but the size of the iPhone 13 mini will be reduced to 5.1 inches, and the screen sizes of the remaining three products are 6.1 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches.
According to the information reported by the Korean media, the difference between iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 is mainly on the screen, which means that the iPhone 13 screen will most likely use an OLED screen with a refresh rate of up to 120hz (currently 12 is 60hz), because The new OLED backplane technology combines the advantages of LTPS and IGZO technologies, adds an oxide layer, and has the characteristics of achieving a high refresh rate under low power consumption. The power consumption problem of the screen is solved, and it is normal for the screen to be updated.
By the way, LTPS (low temperature polysilicon) is currently the most mature OLED backplane technology, but power consumption will increase significantly at high refresh rates. This is also considered to be the main reason why the iPhone 12 does not have a high brush.
LTPO (Low Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) is a new type of OLED backplane technology, which combines the advantages of LTPS and IGZO technologies, adds an oxide layer, can achieve higher charge mobility at a lower cost, and the refresh rate can be based on the display The content is switched between 1-120Hz, thereby greatly reducing power consumption.
At present, Apple Watch has introduced LTPO backplane technology to achieve 18 hours of long battery life under constant screen display.
As for the iPhone 13’s screen suppliers, Samsung and LG are currently considered most likely, while BOE continues to miss out.
And the battery life of the iPhone13 series mobile phones will be greatly improved, even if the 120HZ high refresh rate screen is used, there is no need to worry about battery life.
In addition, in terms of performance, the iPhone 13 series of mobile phones will use the A15 processor, which has a relatively large improvement in performance compared to the A14.
At present, the biggest problem with the A14 is that the frame rate fluctuations caused by high frequency conditions will be perceived by users. Intuitively, users will feel that the phone suddenly becomes a bit stuck. However, this is not only a 5nm problem, but also caused by the poor heat dissipation capability of the iPhone 12.
Therefore, compared to A14, A15 may make better use of the 5nm process technology, and the heat dissipation capability of the body structure may be further optimized.
In addition, the screen design of the iPhone 13 may also usher in a major change.
According to the renderings exposed on the Internet, the design of Liu Haiping is no longer visible on the iPhone 13, and the replacement scheme is to punch holes on the screen and in the middle of the screen.
On the other hand, due to the epidemic this year, the shortcomings of Apple’s face recognition have been fully exposed. Therefore, Apple decided to re-adopt the fingerprint recognition program.
Some time ago, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approved a patent application filed by Apple entitled “Shortwave infrared optical imaging through electronic device display screens”. This technology uses infrared light and penetrating display imaging technology without the use of a physical Home button to reuse Touch ID on the iPhone.
Apple’s intention to apply for this patent is very obvious, this year iPhone13 may abandon the current main push Face ID, and re-adopt Touch ID. In fact, there have been rumors about Apple’s research and development of under-screen Touch ID. The famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted last year that Apple will release at least one iPhone with under-screen fingerprint reader in 2021.
In terms of shooting, to be honest, the 12-megapixel lens has been used for many years. Increasing the pixels can improve the shooting effect most directly and effectively, and the domestic 64 million, 50 million, and even 100 million pixels have already been deployed. This year iPhone 13 In fact, it is necessary and possible to upgrade 64 million four shots. According to another source, the iPhone 13 series may use a new periscope telephoto lens. There is no technical problem with Apple’s research and development of the periscope telephoto lens, so the iPhone 13 is likely to be launched.
It can be said that, judging from the current revelations, the iPhone 13 series of mobile phones are very exciting in terms of performance and other configurations.
Of course, if you really want to study carefully, it is still feasible to use the 120Hz high refresh of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. After all, the battery capacity can be relatively large. As for the iPhone 13 Pro, look at the battery of the iPhone 12 Pro that is less than 3000mAh, the iPhone 13. Pro’s battery capacity is not much higher, so the iPhone 13 Pro uses a 120Hz high screen refresh, which is estimated to be a bit difficult.
And when the iPhone 13 is released, the domestic 5G network should have a certain scale. When the 5G+120Hz high refresh is turned on at the same time, the power consumption should not be low. Of course, we also hope that the iPhone 13 can really achieve high refresh, but IPhone 12 has already let everyone dove, and everyone seems to have chosen to forgive the iPhone 12 for not supporting high brushes. The possibility of squeezing toothpaste on iPhone 13 is very high.
What Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: if the current rumors are true, it also means that the two models with higher positioning in the iPhone 13 series will be the first to use high refresh rate screens, and they will have a better experience. A further improvement. However, as for the specific product details of this series of models, further news is yet to be confirmed, so interested fans may wish to continue to pay attention.
In addition, it is also worth mentioning today that, in addition to the new generation of iPhone, there have been news about Apple’s folding screen devices recently. The latest revelations from sources said that Apple is developing two foldable products under different design schemes.
It is said that one of the devices uses a similar solution to the Microsoft Surface Duo, which has two screens connected by hinges; the other uses the currently popular solution, which supports up and down folding, similar to It is similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip idea of the previous flip phones.
There is also news that Apple is testing the shells of these two devices to determine the final hinge strength. But at the same time, Apple also needs to choose between these two devices, and finally choose one to promote the listing.
As for the time to market of the final product that the outside world is more concerned about, relevant news shows that it may be around September 2022. In other words, it will take a long time to see Apple’s folding screen devices.
In the end, the iPhone 13 series may be as ridiculed by netizens as it is really better than the iPhone 12, so are you planning to start the iPhone 12 series now? Welcome to leave a message in the comment area and talk about your thoughts!
