This is not the first time Apple has rumored to use 120Hz LTPO display technology on the more premium iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. A new report now talks about how Apple’s Korean display suppliers are expected to see growth in 2021, possibly leading to higher earnings due to collaboration with the iPhone giant.
Samsung and LG said to offer upgraded display technology to Apple for the iPhone 13 series, but surprisingly no BOE is mentioned
With four models expected to arrive in 2021, ETNews summarizes the display technology we can expect for each iPhone 13 version. Unfortunately, if you want to see what a faster screen is all about on an iPhone, you will have to spend some extra money in the future.
- iPhone 13 mini – 5.4-inch 60Hz LTPS OLED
- iPhone 13 – 6.1-inch 60Hz LTPS OLED
- iPhone 13 Pro – 6.1-inch 120Hz LTPO OLED
- iPhone 13 Pro Max – 6.7-inch 120Hz LTPO OLED
The report mentions that Apple may see an increase in the offer price, but it is not confirmed whether the company will absorb these costs or transfer them to customers in the form of high prices. The advantage of LTPO technology on a smartphone is that it dynamically switches between 1Hz and 120Hz, depending on the type of content displayed. This helps save battery life, which will be an overriding goal for Apple because all iPhone 13 models are expected to have upgraded 5G modems.
As everyone knows, these modems are extreme battery chargers and probably one of the reasons why Apple chose to omit the use of a 120Hz panel on the iPhone 12 series, even though each model contained supported hardware. The report mentions that Samsung and LG will be responsible for supplying these OLED screens, but it does not mention BOE anywhere. It was previously reported that the Chinese manufacturer began shipping OLED panels to the iPhone 12 family, while also having its own production line for the iPhone 13 series in H1, 2021.
An industry insider who is also mentioned in the report, claims that since iPhone sales are strong, there are high expectations from next year’s models, which should not experience any production delay. This reveals that we may see the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max arrive in September next year instead of in October. If there are any changes to Apple’s plan, we will update you accordingly.
Do you like next year’s iPhone 13 family so far, or do you think that the less expensive models will also get a 120Hz LTPO upgrade? Tell us in the comments.
