According to new leaks, the 2021 vintage of Apple’s iPhones would be equipped with a screen to permanently display key information while remaining low on energy.
Although the announcement of the next iPhone will not take place for several months, many rumors are starting to circulate about the next device of the Apple brand. The new information appearing on the web shows a screen capable of staying on permanently in order to display key information.
New screen technology
The latter would use LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) technology, which consumes little energy, offering a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It would thus be able to remain constantly on, like the Always-on Display mode of Android. . The remaining battery percentage, the time, and an icon bar would therefore be permanently visible, without having to touch the screen.
New notifications would also appear for a few seconds before disappearing. This would save the battery even more, by avoiding illuminating the entire screen with each notification received.
Innovations on the fringes
Other improvements would also be at the rendezvous, especially in terms of photography, thanks to a new ultra-wide-angle sensor offering better low-light performance, as well as a video portrait mode and an automatic astrophotography mode.
The future iPhone would also have a more powerful MagSafe magnet, but also a matte back that is less slippery than the glass one. Other rumors point to a reduced notch (without losing Face ID), coupled with a Touch ID sensor under the screen.
This information is obviously not confirmed and the design of the next smartphone from Apple is likely to change between now and its release. They should therefore be taken with a grain of salt, even if they allow you to get an idea of the features to come.
