The 120Hz Adaptive refresh rate tech may not come to all the iPhone 13 models but only to ‘Pro’ lineup - iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.

There have been enough rumours, leaks and speculations around the upcoming iPhone series, tipped as iPhone 13, and one of its most anticipated features - Adaptive Refresh Rate tech. This is something that was heavily rumoured for the iPhone 12 models but the devices still come with basic 60Hz refresh rate. However, since the past few months, 120Hz refresh rate is said to arrive in the iPhone 13 series. Now, a report from South Korean blog The Elec doubles down on this claim.

As per the report (via Macrumors), the 120Hz Adaptive refresh rate tech may not come to all the iPhone 13 models but only to ‘Pro’ lineup - iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max. These two are supposed to use RFPCB and have LTPO thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED panels that will be coming from Samsung Display. The piece of information resonates with the claims made by Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo in the past along with display analyst Ross Young and tipster Jon Prosser.

The most recent claim was from Young who tweeted that “Heard some rumors in the industry and media that there would only be one LTPO model from Apple later this year. Can confirm that is not the case. Apple fans can relax!”

Talking about iPhone 13 displays, a recent leak showing the glass screen panel of the iPhone 13 models, have indicated that the notch will be smaller this time. From the looks of it, the height of the notch seems almost identical but the width is where it has reduced.

Also visible is that the ‘newer’ notch has a different design and placement of components. As rumoured before (and seen in the latest leaked images) the cutout shows the notch to feature all its sensors towards the lower side and speaker grille right on top. For now, in the iPhone 12 series, the speaker grille is placed right at the centre of the notch, with sensors on either side.
