iPhone 15 series has barely been on the market for two months now but multiple rumours about next year’s iPhone 16 series have already started surfacing online. Now, a rumour suggests that the iPhone 16 Pro models will bring larger displays. The iPhone 16 Pro is said to feature a 6.27-inch display while the iPhone 16 Pro Max could pack a 6.86-inch display. Meanwhile, Apple is said to stick to a 60Hz display on the iPhone 16 and 16 Plus models similar to their iPhone 15 counterparts. The Pro variants could get 120Hz screen.
A new post by the South Korean blog Naver claims that Apple could pack a 6.27-inch display on the iPhone 16 Pro and a 6.86-inch display on the iPhone 16 Pro Max. The Pro models could use 120Hz displays based on the low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) technology.
The iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models, in contrast, are said to maintain 6.12-inch and 6.69-inch displays with 60Hz refresh rate respectively, the same size and refresh rate as the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus. This year’s iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro sport 6.1-inch OLED displays, while the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max come with larger 6.7-inch OLED displays. Both iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max models support ProMotion with a refresh rate that ranges between 1Hz and 120Hz. The vanilla and Plus models in the iPhone 16 family could still feature 60Hz LTPO displays. Additionally, all models in the lineup are expected to feature a Dynamic Island.
The new leak lines up with what DSCC analyst Ross Young previously claimed in May. According to Young, the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max models launching in 2024 will feature around 6.3-inch and 6.9-inch display sizes, respectively. He believes that regular models will maintain 6.1 and 6.7-inch displays. Known tipster Revegnus (@Tech_Reve) also corroborated this possibility.
