First iPhone 13 Prototype resembles iPhone 12 and doesnt have in-display Touch ID: Tipster – gizmochina

Apple recently launched the iPhone 12 series. However, the devices still miss out on USB-C, and Touch-ID which has become unavoidable these days. Now, a tipster claims that the next iPhone(Tentative: iPhone 13) will travel down the same path. And only have few improvements over the predecessor.

Tipster Jiorīku on Twitter says(via wccftech) early iPhone 13(tentative) prototypes have been made. And its design isn’t reportedly far away from the iPhone 12. He says the new prototype has designed very similar to the latter but with “few extra steps”. In fact, he mentions that the prototype doesn’t even include the in-display Touch ID that we all have been waiting for. This is disappointing considering Apple went back to Touch-ID on the recent iPad Air 4.

However, this contradicts earlier reports where Analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple will launch at least one model with in-display Touch-ID. That said, the iPhone 13 will adopt a similar design to the iPad Pro if Jiorīku is right. It could carry forward the boxy design with flatter edges, display sitting flush with the metal frame, and rounded corners. However, it could go down the same route of having a display with a wide notch for housing the Face-ID sensors and front camera.

As we already know, early reports of the iPhone 13 indicate that it will have a 120Hz refresh rate screen. Additionally, it will adopt the LTPO(Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide) display designed by Apple. Under the hood, it is likely to be powered by the Apple A15 Bionic manufactured by TSMC using a 5nm node. And tipster Jon Prosser has already hinted that future iPhones will have a 1TB storage option.

Let’s wait and see if Apple decides to include both the Touch-ID and 120Hz which may reflect in the future updates of the iPhone 13 prototypes.
