Apple is reportedly preparing to launch iPhone 13 lineup next year and now a new report suggests that the upcoming series may come with an optical in-display fingerprint sensor as the secondary biometric option alongside Face ID. Apple may incorporate some of the characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy S21 in its next-generation iPhones.
As per the reports, Apple was working with optical sensors for in-screen fingerprint reading, which “can be more reliable” than an ultrasonic solution. Earlier, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had also told that Apple is working on the optical in-display fingerprint and might launch it with the iPhone 13 series.
The iPhone 13 lineup may reflect the iPhone 12 family of phones, with a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 Mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max. In addition, the Ultra-Wide cameras on the two high-end models will be significantly improved to f/1.8, 6P (six-element lens) with autofocus. All the current iPhone 12 models are provided with f/2.4, 5P (five-element lens) Ultra-Wide cameras with fixed focus.
According to Barclays analysts, the iPhone 13/Pro models may have Wi-Fi 6E. The Wi-Fi 6E provides Wi-Fi 6 features and capabilities, including higher performance, lower latency, and faster data rates.
