Furthermore, Apple will reduce the side bezels and this will significantly increase the visual effect of the display. However, the screen sizes will remain the same as the iPhone 12 series. Nevertheless, the iPhone 13 Pro series will also use Samsung’s 120Hz LTPO OLED panel, support a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, and bring a smart refresh rate. The smart refresh rate will ensure that the refresh rate of the screen can automatically switch between 1-120Hz depending on the usage of the screen.
