Apple intends to continue on its good momentum of 2020, which has enabled it to achieve colossal turnover thanks to its iPhone 12. The Cupertino company therefore does not want to be taken by surprise, believing that the gradual release of the Covid-19 crisis could give an additional boost to its sales. She would also like to make the most of the sanctions that still weigh on her rival Huawei.
According to Bloomberg, the giant intends to increase production of its next smartphone by 20%. This equates to an order of 90 million terminals for the first quarter of launch alone, compared to 75 million previously. Needless to say, the announcement pushed up the share price on the stock market a little more.
That the initial demand is higher therefore demonstrates Apple’s confidence in its new 5G smartphones, whose code names are D16, D17, D63 and D64. However, the majority of experts do not expect a revolution in terms of design or technology. But the fact that this is only the second 5G compatible model from the Apple brand might convince enthusiasts who had not taken the plunge last year.
A slightly revised technical sheet
Bloomberg says Apple matters “focus on improving the processor, photo modules, but also the screen”. We could thus find a 120 Hz Pro Motion LTPO panel (for polycrystalline oxide at low temperature), capable of better adapting its refresh rate to uses. We have already been able to appreciate this technology on devices like the Galaxy S21 Ultra or the Oppo Find X3 Pro. The American would therefore have chosen to implement it on his most high-end smartphone, as he had done on his Apple Watch since Serie 4.
As for the rest of the hardware, we expect a Bionic A15 SoC once again very convincing, but also a bigger battery. A choice that seems logical if the chip and the screen also consume more energy. Note also that the notch should be thinner than before. Not enough to upset the general look so far. You just have to wait for the September keynote to discover these new devices in more detail.
