IPhone 13 Pro duo could get 120Hz refresh rate display

IPhone 13 Pro duo could get 120Hz refresh rate display”

LG doesn't seem to be able to supply Apple with LTPO OLED solutions earlier than 2022, but Samsung Display is reportedly already looking to increase its LTPO OLED production capacity in anticipation of the iPhone 13 series. The LTPO display will enable support for a faster 120Hz refresh rate without needing additional hardware.

Multiple rumors ahead of the launch of the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup suggested the high-end iPhone 12 Pro models could feature 120Hz ProMotion displays, but later in the rumor cycle, it became clear that this feature was delayed until 2021 due to battery life concerns.

Samsung will supply the 120Hz LPTO OLED panels for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to TheElec. These two models will be more expensive than the other models in the series.

Apple is expected to debut the iPhone 13 in September with a lineup that closely resembles the "four phones in three sizes" model just like the iPhone 12.

Samsung Display will be the exclusive supplier used by Apple for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels used in the two highest tier models of its next iPhone, TheElec has learned.

According to the report by Korean The Elec, Apple has signed a contract with Samsung for LTPO OLED displays that will be used on both iPhone 13 Pro models. For comparison, LG's E6 line in Paju can put out only 5,000 sheets a month, though it plans to expand that to 25,000 before the end of this year. These panels require a layer of oxide in the mixture, which is a bit complex to achieve. Reports stated that Apple is not planning to change the screen for iPhone 12 smartphones right now. Secondly, reducing the refresh rate could help decrease power consumption. Apple Watch Series 5 and Series 6 models now use LTPO displays, allowing them to have the same 18-hour battery life as previous models while offering an always-on display. LG Display will also supply LTPO panels but the deliveries to Apple could only begin by 2022.

Apple Watch Series 5 and Series 6 models as of now use LTPO shows, which empowers them to have the equivalent as long as 18-hour battery life as prior Apple Watch models in spite of having a consistently on display.
