Basic iPhones may get a ProMotion display in 2025

Apple plans to introduce high refresh rate displays and LTPO technology to its base

iPhone models, according to the Gizmochina portal withreferring to well-known insider Ross Young. First introduced with the iPhone 13 Pro in 2021, ProMotion will roll out to base iPhones in two years. This will increase the display refresh rate to 120Hz for smoother scrolling and video content, and lower the refresh rate for improved power efficiency. The roadmap provided by Yang suggests that the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus will feature ProMotion and Always-On technologies.

By the same generation, judging by Young's data,Smartphones from Apple's Pro line will receive Face ID sensors built under the screen. The front camera hidden under the screen in the iPhone is planned to be introduced only in 2027: the iPhone 19 Pro will have a truly “full-screen” look, and face recognition sensors and the camera will be hidden under the display. As the authors of the portal note, there are some problems that Apple will have to overcome in order for the under-display camera to work without problems. For example, the iPhone uses a Super Retina display with a pixel density of about 400-500, and the screen transmittance is low, and the light received by the front camera under the display is minimal, which may affect the image quality.
