Apple iPhone 13 May Come With Optical In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Every other day, a new leak drops major hints about the specifications and designs of the upcoming iPhone 13 series.

Apple launched the iPhone 12 series a few of months ago. However, the Cupertino-giant has already start working on the iPhone 13 series. Each and every day, a new leak drops major hints about the specifications and designs of the upcoming iPhone. While the recent leaks dropped significant hints about some of the details, the latest leak reveals that the smartphone will come with an optical in-display fingerprint sensor.

According to Wall Street Journal reporter Joanna Stern, Apple could present an optical in-display fingerprint sensor as the auxiliary biometric alternative close by Face ID. Stern in his report has shared that it would incorporate some of the features of the Samsung Galaxy S21 in its next-generation iPhones.

Previously, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman had also revealed that Apple is working on the optical in-display fingerprint and might introduce it with the iPhone 13 series. The feature is already available on Android phones. There is no physical button that scans your fingerprint yet the screen lights up with the fingerprint icon at whatever point you place your finger. This is the manner by which the feature looks on Android phones. We are yet to figure how Apple needs to use this feature in its phones.

Aside from this, a report had recently recommended that the upcoming iPhone 13 models are expected to come with support for Wi-Fi 6E technology. It is being reported for that the hardware for this Wi-Fi 6E innovation will be provided by semiconductor creator Skyworks. The reports also add the company could also use hardware from Broadcomm — the company which provides Wi-Fi 6E technology to Samsung for the S21 Ultra.

There will be some significant upgrades in the cameras of the iPhone 13 as the reports have recommended that Apple is planning to outfit its phones with sensor-shift optical image stabilization. This will give a DSLR-like innovation to the iPhone 13 cameras. Coming to the displays, iPhone 13 would also come with comparatively faster displays.

A new report had claimed that the top 2 ‘Pro’ variations, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, will feature the long-rumored 120Hz ProMotion display. There’s also a suggestion that the base iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 will come with LTPS display while the Pro variants will feature a 120Hz LTPO display. For the uninitiated, LTPS is Low-Temperature Polysilicon while the LTPO is Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide.
