Apple has officially announced the new iPhone 13 Pro at the “California Streaming” event. It’s the successor to the last year’s 12 Pro and is among the first iPhones to support a 120Hz refresh rate. So, let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Apple iPhone 13 Pro in Nepal.
iPhone 13 Pro Overview:
Design and Display
Starting with the display, the iPhone 13 Pro boasts a 6.1‑inch OLED panel with 2532 x 1170 pixel resolution and 460PPI pixel density. The highlight of this year’s Pro iPhones is the 120Hz ProMotion support. Under this, the 13 Pro implements an LTPO backplane that can dynamically switch the display’s refresh rate between 10 and 120Hz.
Additionally, this screen sports 1000 nits of max typical brightness while it can reach up to 1200 nits during HDR playback. It is covered with an oleophobic coating that wards off fingerprints and smudges as well. In addition, the phone is IP68 rated for water and dust resistance.
In terms of design, it’s practically the same as last year’s iPhone 12 Pro with its stainless steel case and matte glass back. However, the notch is 20% narrower this time around. Furthermore, it weighs 204 grams and is 7.65 thick. iPhone 13 Pro is available in four color options: Graphite, Gold, Silver, and Sierra Blue.
Getting to the performance, it packs the new A15 Bionic chipset. Manufactured under the 5nm process node, it features a 6-core CPU, a 5-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine. Here, Apple promises that the new GPU architecture delivers 50% better graphics performance than the competition. Memory-wise, it’s available with up to 1TB of internal storage.
