Kuo: iPhone 13 series with smaller notch, 13 Pro gets 120Hz screen, foldable in 2023

Ivan, 02 March 2021

Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has a another bit of information regarding Apple's iPhone lineup going forward.

Starting off with the iPhone 13 series that will premiere this Fall - there will be four models with the same-sized screens as the current lineup, all will have a smaller notch and a Lightning port. Kuo notes that Apple wants to move to a portless iPhone with a MagSafe connector, but that technology isn't mature enough yet. We could see the first portless iPhone in 2022 or in 2023 at the latest.

All iPhone 13 models will have a new ulrawide camera - 6p f/1.8 lens and autofocus (currently it's a 5p f/2.4 fixed-focus). The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will have LiDAR scanners and 120Hz-capable LTPO displays. Qualcomm's 5nm X60M 5G modem will be embedded into the 13 series.

Apple will increase the battery capacities on all iPhone 13 models, thanks to space-saving innovation like embedding the SIM slot into the mainboard. All iPhone 13 models will become a bit heavier due to battery capacity increase.

Onto future plans. Apple's first foldable iPhone will have a screen between 7.5-inch and 8-inch and will arrive in 2023.

Apple will reportedly scrap the Face ID notch for a punch-hole selfie camera in 2022. An iPhone with an under-display Touch ID and a periscope zoom camera could arrive in 2022, but is likelier to come in 2023.

Finally Kuo mentions that Apple could replace the iPhone 11 with a sub-$600 iPhone in the first half of 2023. It will bring Face ID, 5G and a similarly-sized 6-inch screen.

and for 1.5 times less, you get the same service with the same Renault engines. Every day iPhone 12 owners admire their Samsung screen and think they are safe from tracking in a world where Globetech exists.
