American tech giant Apple is supposedly planning to launch iPhone 13 series and now the latest report has claimed that the upcoming series will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X60 5G modem.
According to the reports, Qualcomm will continue to manufacture its next-generation 5G mobile chip, tentatively dubbed Snapdragon 895, at Samsung Electronics built using an upgraded 5nm process, but may switch to TSMC in 2022 using its 4nm process.
Previous reports have exposed that the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max models will come with support for 120Hz refresh rate and the company will use LTPO panels from Samsung which can dynamically switch refresh rate between 1Hz to 120Hz depending on the type of content on the screen, helping save the battery life.
The iPhone 13 lineup may mirror the iPhone 12 family of phones, with a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.
In addition, the Ultra-Wide cameras on the two high-end models will be significantly upgraded to f/1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus. All the current iPhone 12 models are equipped with f/2.4, 5P (five-element lens) Ultra-Wide cameras with fixed focus.
