According to Cupertino, the new smartphone could be in greater demand than the iPhone 12 family

The news is reported by DigiTimes: it seems that TSMC, Apple’s chip supplier has started to produce A15 bionic, the latest generation chipset that will be mounted on the new iPhone 13. And compared to the A14 chip, production could be higher, a sign that the Cupertino giant expects higher sales for the smartphone that will see the light, if times are respected, in September 2021. Otherwise, the information collected on the New iPhone 13 in recent months there have been many. These are indiscretions that should be taken with a grain of salt, but let’s try to bring order anyway.

Notch

The notch should be significantly smaller than in the past, with the front camera sensor moved to the left. This was revealed by the Japanese site Mac Otakara, which had also proposed a model made with the 3D printer. Instead, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, familiar with the world of Cupertino, had announced potential major news about the photographic industry. In particular, the Pro Max version will advance in this regard: the wide-angle lens should have an aperture of f / 1.5, compared to the f / 1.6 of the previous version.

What we know about the iPhone 13

The news on the cameras of iPhone 13, they wouldn’t stop there. Also according to Kuo, in fact, the lenses of the new Cupertino smartphone could be supplied by Sunny Optical, a Chinese company specializing in the production of optical lenses. The other components of Apple’s new family of mobile phones, however, could have characteristics in all respects similar to those already seen in last year’s devices.

It has long been known that Apple was focusing on cameras to make the leap in quality over the competition. There has been a lot of talk about the super night photos of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, but many have realized, using the new super top-of-the-range device, that the zoom function is not comparable to that of other companies’ smartphones in the world. market (Huawei’s Mate 40 Pro in all). According to some leakers, the stars and stripes company would team up with Samsung to equip the iPhone 13 with a super camera. To achieve this, it seems that Apple is willing to include one in the next cell phones. periscope camera with optical zoom; the sensor would be entrusted to the Korean competitor.

Apple’s new smartphone will have a super display

In recent months we had anticipated that the iPhone 13 should have a super display, also manufactured in this case by Samsung, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. For some years there have been rumors of a refresh rate that goes more than 60 Hz for the iPhone, and promptly, in each presentation, those rumors are denied. 2021 could really be a good year. Not just the update rate. The other more interesting news concerns the notch, which yes, it will still be around, with all due respect to those who just can’t stand it, but it will be getting smaller and smaller than in the past. This is what some leakers have leaked in recent days on social networks.

Kuo had anticipated that the iPhone 13 will have, compared to the past, larger battery modules, thanks to a space-saving design of other internal components; this will result in longer battery life (at least intentionally). Bloomberg has also been particularly generous on details about the new one in recent months. iPhone 13 (or 12 if you prefer). We had already told you about the rumors that smartphones that will be launched in September 2021 could have a folding screen. This would be an important first for the Cupertino giant, ready to compete with Samsung, the leaders in this specific sector, and Motorola. However, this is a very remote eventuality.

As far as we know, the tests launched by the American company would be of two types:

  • the first in the resistance of the system that allows you to fold the two screens
  • the second on the resistance that allows folding the two halves of the screen

Fingerprint sensor under the screen?

New iPhones may have fingerprint sensor under the screen, in particular because of the difficulties experienced by Face ID (facial recognition made at Apple) in times of a health epidemic, with the mask on. The new smartphones should also do well in the field of storage capacity: for at least one of the smartphones, we are talking about a 1 terabyte super memory.
