While this isn’t the first time rumors of the new displays have surfaced in the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup, this is one of the first times we’ve got evidence of this. We’ve talked about the ability to get 120Hz refresh rates and a smaller notch in an iPhone since the 12 series was released. The current iPhone lineup, however, had to forego 120Hz refresh rate displays to favor the battery, and the only notch that got smaller was that of the iPhone 12 mini.
There were rumors in the industry and in the media that there would only be one LTPO model from Apple later that year. Can confirm that it is not. Apple fans can relax!

Now it seems that we will actually get this feature in the upcoming lineup, as a well-known analyst just commented on the matter. Ross Young used his Twitter account to post some information about the display in the upcoming iPhone 13 series. He believes that we will get two devices with LTPO displays that would allow a refresh rate of 120 Hz. These devices are likely to be the high-end iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The new LTPO OLED displays are more energy efficient, which means they don’t drain the iPhone’s battery as much, so the 120Hz feature can finally make its debut on these iOS devices. However, that’s not the only improvement that can be made with the iPhone 13. We’ve seen some leaks showing what is slated to be the iPhone 13 range’s glass front, and now Leaker DuanRui has released pictures of what could be the redesigned notch for the iPhone 13.

We can clearly see the size difference between the notch in the iPhone 12 and the possible “movie samples” that represent the final notch in the upcoming iPhone 13. These examples suggest that the new notch could be a little higher than the current design, but it would be 30 percent narrower.
