The rumors just don't stop. J speaking of 2020, the DigiTimes reported that iPhones, for the first time, will have a screen with the same variable refresh rate as iPads, with up to 120Hz (feature Apple calls ProMotion). But with one big difference: on iPads we have LCD displays, while on iPhone we have OLED according to the rumors, all 2020 iPhones will have OLED screens.
In practice, this means that we will have much smoother animations, much more accurate screen scrolling, accurately displayed video contents regardless of the four seconds per second used in recording (24, 48 or 60), among other things.
Currently, iPhones have touch screens. 60Hz. In the Android world, some devices have already passed this barrier and work with 90Hz screens, such as the newly launched Google Pixel 4; ASUS ROG, in turn, was the first to incorporate a 120Hz OLED display.
New iPhone SE
We've talked a lot here too about the possible new iPhone SE, which would come with a very similar physical structure to the iPhone 8. Now the analyst Ming Chi Kuo (who admittedly has good contacts on Apple's production line) reported that the second generation of this special iPhone model will go into production in January in order to be launched in March.
The first generation of iPhone SE was launched just in March (2016); In addition, March is right in the middle of Apple's smartphone launch cycle, which is a great way to survive sales.
According to Kuo, this new handset will have a 4.7 inch screen, A13 Bionic chip, 3GB of RAM, 64GB and 128GB options for storage and Home button (with Touch ID). It would come in space gray, silver and (PRODUCT) RED colors and follow the current line, discarding the 3D Touch.
In addition, the analyst believes that the device will have an antenna design made of LCP in order to facilitate transmission efficiency; Other sources in the production chain are betting that LG will be the supplier of LCD screens.
With a screen slightly larger than the 4-inch screen (of the old iPhone SE), many may be disappointed with this new format. Still, Kuo's sales forecast is around 2-4 million units per month; the new iPhone SE would cost from $ 399 in the US.
The name, in turn, will not necessarily be "iPhone SE" or "iPhone SE 2". As we know, Apple loves to invent at such times and it would come as no surprise to see something like "iPhone 8s" or "iPhone 9".
We'll see what comes next
