Apple Inc.s (NASDAQ: AAPL) so-called iPhone 13 model will have low-temperature polycrystalline oxide or LPTO screens, The Elec reported on Monday with reference to a UBI research note.
What happened: Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (OTC: SSNLF) will convert its OLED display production line dedicated to its largest customer Apple to one that makes LTPO thin film transistor OLED displays during the first half of this year, according to the report. However, the production capacity of the line will drop to 70,000 substrates per month from the previous 105,000.
Samsung uses the same technology on the Galaxy Note 20 devices, while Apple uses this technology in the Apple Watch.
The Cupertino-based technology giant is reportedly planning to use the screens in its advanced iPhone 1

Why it applies: The introduction of the new LPTO screens will enable higher refresh rates and lower power consumption on the iPhone 13 devices. LTPO supports variable refresh rates on the screen up to 120Hz.
Quote analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, 9to5Mac reported earlier this month that the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max screen will use more energy-efficient LTPO technology and add 120Hz support, similar to the ProMotion screen on the iPad Pro.
On Monday, Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives reiterated his previous view that the iPhone 13 is likely to have a terabyte alternative, twice as much as the highest available storage capacity at the moment. The device, which is expected to launch in September, will also include a number of improvements with Lidar across all models, according to Ives.
Price action: Apple shares closed 2.8% higher on Monday at $ 123.39.
