Back in September 2021, Apple announced the iPhone 13 series out of which, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max came with the 120Hz refresh rate LTPO panel but the vanilla iPhone 13 and 13 Mini models still maintained the traditional 60Hz refresh rate. Now, according to recent leaks, all the upcoming iPhone 14 lineup will have the 120Hz refresh rate panel.
As per a MacRumors report, Analyst Jeff Pu outlined that all iPhone 14 models will feature a 120Hz LTPO ProMotion display.
In case you are unaware, Apple’s ProMotion display is basically its name for the adaptive refresh rate technology. ProMotion allows the refresh rate to change from 120Hz to 10Hz depending on the content being displayed on the screen. So a static website will be played at a 10Hz refresh rate and a game at a 120Hz refresh rate. This allows for battery conservation by reducing the screen’s refresh rate when not needed.
Previously, Pu had also predicted that iPhone 14 Pro models would have an increased RAM of 8GB but based on supply chain sources, he has now speculated that all four iPhone 14 models will be equipped with 6GB of RAM because of the cost considerations.
Although this means nothing when you consider the current pro models, however, an increase to 6GB RAM would be great for standard iPhone 14 models as well as the rumored iPhone 14 max.
Previous rumors have also hinted that the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro will have a pill-shaped front camera cutout instead of the wider notch to house the front-facing camera. But a later report states that there will be two cutouts on the iPhone Pro, one pill-shaped cutout and another punch-hole cutout. These cutouts are said to house the front camera as well as the Face ID sensors.
Other than the screen, the iPhone 14 Pro is also expected to feature a 48MP main camera sensor which will be the largest resolution sensor on an iPhone yet.
