Kuo: iPhone 13 Lineup to Feature Smaller Notch and Larger Batteries, 120Hz Display for Pro Models, and More

iPhone 13 models will all feature a smaller notch, while the two Pro models will be equipped with low-power LTPO display technology for a 120Hz refresh rate, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said today in a research note obtained by MacRumors.


Kuo said the iPhone 13 lineup will consist of the four same models as the iPhone 12 lineup, all with a Lightning connector and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X60 modem, which offers several 5G networking improvements. As previously rumored, Kuo said the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s sensor-shift image stabilization will expand to the entire iPhone 13 lineup.

All four iPhone 13 models will feature larger battery capacities compared to iPhone 12 models, according to Kuo, thanks to space-saving design choices such as integrating the SIM card slot with the motherboard and reducing the thickness of some Face ID components.

Kuo added that Apple does not plan to release a new iPhone SE model until the first half of 2022.
