Skilled show analyst Ross Young has as we speak shared a variety of knowledge from Mizuho Securities concerning the “iPhone 13,” rumored to succeed the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup, and the third-generation iPhone SE.
The projected iPhone 13 lineup seems to be similar to the anticipated iPhone 12 lineup, encompassing one 6.7-inch “Professional Max” mannequin, one 6.1-inch “Professional” mannequin, one 6.1-inch non-Professional mannequin, and one 5.4-inch “mini” mannequin. It follows subsequently that the units is not going to see vital modifications to design or form-factor.
All iPhone 13 fashions are imagined to have built-in contact expertise, and Chinese language agency BOE Expertise will be a part of LG Show in producing shows for the 6.1-inch iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Professional. Samsung is believed to provide Apple with Y-Octa expertise for all iPhone 13 shows.
Younger says that the “most necessary growth” on the iPhone 13 Professional fashions would be the adoption of 120Hz-capable ProMotion shows with variable refresh charges, accommodated by the adoption of LTPO show expertise. After a variety of mixed reports, rumors now appear to be largely in agreement that 120Hz shows is not going to come to the iPhone till 2021.
Most necessary growth on the iPhone 13 fashions from my perspective might be ProMotion with variable refresh charges by LTPO adoption on the Professional fashions.

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will reportedly acquire the identical digital camera sensors because the iPhone 12 Professional Max, whereas the sensor dimension of each Professional fashions will improve. Which means that there might be vital digital camera enhancements on all fashions.
Whereas Younger expects each iPhone 13 Professional fashions to have a LiDAR Scanner on the rear, it’s unknown whether or not the characteristic will come to the non-Professional fashions. For the iPhone 12, rumors haven’t been clear on whether or not LiDAR will come to all Professional-models or just the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
All iPhone 13 fashions might get sub-6GHz 5G connectivity, however the Professional fashions may also have faster mmWave 5G along with the slower however extra widespread connection. This 12 months, the iPhone 12 Professional Max is the one mannequin rumored to offer mmWave 5G.
With LiDAR and mmWave on each iPhone 13 Professional fashions, plainly if the iPhone 12 lineup reserves these high-end options for the Professional Max mannequin solely, 2021 will see a leveling-up of options among the many Professional fashions.
There may also apparently not be a third-generation iPhone SE till Spring 2022. The third-generation iPhone SE is anticipated to have a 6.1-inch LCD show, Contact ID, sub-6GHz 5G, and the identical twin cameras because the iPhone 11. This implies it should mirror the design of 2019’s iPhone 11, simply as earlier iPhone SE fashions have repeated the design of an older system with upgraded internals, and presumably have Touch ID integrated into the lock button just like the iPad Air 4.
