Although the iPhone 15 series of phones was only recently launched, information about the upcoming one is already leaking, and now it comes from alleged supply chain sources that appeared on the Korean website blog.naver. According to them, the iPhone 16 Pro models will have larger screens, but also a faster refresh rate, and the basic models will retain the same specifications as the previous, i.e., this year’s generation of Apple phones.
Thus, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max will have LTPO panels with a diagonal length of 6.27 and 6.86 inches and a screen refresh rate of 120 Hz. The base, “vanilla” models will remain at 6.12 and 6.69 inches and with a 60 Hz screen refresh rate.
The size of the best model in the series is a bit hard to believe, so this information should be viewed with a grain of salt.
The mentioned specifications are confirmed by industry insider Ross Young, who also claims that Pro Motion screen technology will arrive on basic iPhone models only in 2025.
While buyers of older iPhone models may not mind possibly spending another year at a modest 60Hz, it should be noted that the expensive screens of Apple’s entry-level phones are slowly starting to look uncompetitive compared to the Android offerings of high-end and mid-range phones.
