Recently, the international data company IDC announced the shipments of smartphones in the fourth quarter of 2020. Data shows that Apple’s shipments in the fourth quarter of 2020 reached 90.1 million units, surpassing Samsung (73.9 million units) and ranked first. Created the highest record of shipments of mobile phone manufacturers in a single quarter. The reason why Apple can achieve such a good result is that the launch of the iPhone 12 series has contributed greatly.
Some old Apple users do not want to change iPhone 12, mainly because they failed to meet their expectations, such as not having a high screen refresh. With the advent of 2021, the new iPhone is getting closer and closer to us. According to previous analysts’ news, the iPhone 13 (tentative name) will be unveiled as scheduled in September. Although there are still more than half a year, this does not affect people’s attention to this new machine that has not yet been released. After all, with the title of “Thirteen Fragrance”, domestic users seem to have more expectations for the iPhone flagship.
The following is a summary of the iPhone 13 exposure information, let’s see which one is the most exciting for you.
First of all, I believe that some fans who have been following Mingmei Infinite to this day should all know that Apple mobile phones seem to have their own data. Isn’t that, iPhone 12 is still the latest product, and netizens are already focusing on iPhone 13. A few days ago, someone broke the news on Twitter that Apple is testing an iPhone 13 prototype, and the biggest feature of this machine is that you can’t see the notch gap.
In addition, the whistleblower also claimed that the iPhone 13 screen frame may be a bit thick. However, after removing the bangs, the location of the sensor, and whether the surroundings of the screen are even, etc., are temporarily unknown.
In fact, as early as last year, foreign media broke the news that Apple will launch an iPhone without bangs next year, and also posted a 5.5-inch iPhone model picture. The device in the picture does adopt a full-screen design, and the camera is located at the top left corner of the screen. .
The recent patent information shows that Apple hopes to embed a light sensor under the display, which makes the iPhone further move towards the complete elimination of bangs.
Of course, judging from the current known supply chain technology progress, under-screen fingerprints and under-screen cameras are not a problem, but it is not realistic to implement all the components of Face ID under the screen.
In addition to the iPhone 13 series, digital expert Jon Prosser said in the latest FPT video program that this year’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will also have 1TB models. To some extent, this may leave room for 8K HDR 45FPS video shooting, and it also suggests that the iPhone 13/13 mini may provide up to 512GB of storage.
Prosser also said that some sources have seen the CAD file of the upcoming iPhone, in which the bangs on the screen have become smaller. “The CAD file of this prototype shows that the bangs actually look shorter, not narrower.”
Mingmei knows infinitely that AppleTrack has given an accuracy rate of 79.2% for Jon Prosser’s previous revelations, ranking among the top 6 Apple-related revelers. Anyway, these revelations must be trusted selectively.
As for the use of such a large capacity space, it may be more in line with the needs of some video creators. After all, many materials are still very space-consuming, especially for 4K video. But it is inevitable that if the next-generation iPhone really has a 1TB version, then obviously the price will reach a new high. Is it necessary to touch the edge of 15,000 yuan?
In addition to the proprietary 1TB version, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are also likely to be Apple’s first products with a 120Hz display. There have been reports in this area before, and it is likely to use low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) panels. Samsung will become the only supplier of LTPO 120Hz OLED screens for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
In addition, the report mentioned that the iPhone 13 series will retain many design elements on the iPhone 12, such as relatively flat edges, but there are still many differences between the two generations of products placed together. It is rumored that Apple will minimize the “bangs” on the new iPhone screen. It has also tested the prototype of the iPhone 13 without the “bangs”, but the frame of such a design phone will be slightly larger. Perhaps you can expect that the new iPhone does not have a “bangs” screen design, but it is also possible that the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 use similar molds. The iPhone 14 without the “bangs” is the real one.
The iPhone 13 will also have a larger battery to offset the increased power consumption of replacing the 5G modem and LTPO 120Hz OLED screen.
In addition, it is worth mentioning today that everyone has seen MagSafe magnetic charging technology on the iPhone 12, while on the iPhone 13, Apple may be more aggressive and cancel the Lighting interface completely. There is only MagSafe. This approach seems very strange, but in fact Apple has already been brewing. With the continuous improvement of technology and in order to reduce costs, it is imperative to cancel various interfaces. Of course, the most important thing is to increase profitability.
For Apple’s own players, there are already a lot of Lightning data cables on hand, and Apple canceled the data cables in the iPhone 12 box to reduce costs. The significance of using MagSafe is to allow users to purchase chargers a second time, so that Apple can reap more profits. It is really an old capitalist as soon as you speak. However, due to the recent news that the MagSafe charger may affect the pacemaker in the body, there is still some doubt whether it can fully replace the Lightning interface. But at least we see a big trend, that is, Apple is gradually abandoning traditional charging methods and making wireless charging the mainstream.
In other respects, if nothing happens, the iPhone 13 series will be equipped with a new generation of A-series bionic chips, using TSMC’s enhanced 5nm+ process. It can be foreseen that the performance of the iPhone 13 will be further improved compared to the iPhone 12.
In terms of 5G network, iPhone 13 is expected to use Qualcomm X60 baseband to realize SA/NSA dual-module network.
In December 2020, when Barclays analysts outlined their expectations for the iPhone 13, analysts believe that the iPhone 13 is expected to support WiFi 6E and bring faster internet speeds.
Finally, the price that everyone is most concerned about, starting with the iPhone 11, Apple has gradually made concessions in the pricing of mobile phones, which has also greatly promoted iPhone shipments. So, will the iPhone 13 series continue this strategy? If iPhone prices continue to drop, how will its market perform? These will be especially worth looking forward to.
In the end, what Mingmei wants to say is: For Apple, which is not bad for money, it is not difficult to make a few prototypes and then mass-produce them.
If all goes well, we can expect to see four iPhone 13 product lines with a refreshing front in the second half of 2021 at the earliest.
As for whether the frame around the screen is equal, and how the traditional sensors and other components will be rearranged, it seems that Apple has not yet finalized the final design.
Earlier news said that the iPhone 13 series is expected to appropriately thicken the body and accommodate a larger battery to alleviate the anxiety of battery life caused by the 5G mobile network and the 120Hz high screen refresh.
Judging from the current news, Apple no longer squeezes toothpaste, and the iPhone 13 is the true flagship.
