iPhone 13 ProMotion
After first appearing in the 2017 iPad Pro, it appears that 2021 will finally be the year that the iPhone gains a ProMotion display. Today’s Digitimes reports corroborates claims made recently by The Elec. The report says Apple is going to use LTPO screen technology in the iPhone 13. The power efficiency of LTPO helps to enable the iPhone to run at a 120Hz refresh rate presumably without impacting battery life.
To date, all iPhones use 60Hz displays. That means that the content on-screen changes 60 times a second, or every 16 milliseconds. A 120Hz display updates twice as much, or about every 8 milliseconds. This results in more responsive user interactions, such as when scrolling a list or swiping between pages of the home screen.
Samsung is increasing its efforts to win over iPhone customers. The smartphone maker has launched a new website called “iTest,” and it allows iPhone users to “get a little taste of Samsung” through a web application that simulates the Android experience.
When you visit Samsung’s iTest website, you’ll be prompted to add the web application to your iPhone’s home screen. Once you do this, you can launch it just like any other app and get some hands-on time with the Android interface.
