Samsung will be the exclusive supplier of the OLED panels used in the two high-end models of the iPhone 13, which according to a new report from THE ELEC will be launched later this year in September 2021. The report also states that all four iPhone 13 models will use an OLED display, but only the first two models or the Pro will be equipped with Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxydetransistor (LTPO) OLED TFT panels from Samsung Display and will also support 120 Hz refresh rates.
Earlier rumors pegged that the iPhone 13 will come with displays from LG and Samsung, but the latest report indicates that LG will not be able to deliver its LTPO OLED display for the iPhone 13, and LG will work to increase capacity to deliver the iPhone models in 2022.
Apple is also planning to provide OLED LTPOs for all iPhone models launched starting 2022. So it seems that the displays shall come from both Samsung and LG.
Earlier it was rumored that the iPhone 12 would have a 120 Hz display, but this was out of the question due to battery life problems due to 5G and High refresh rate display. Previous reports have shown that ProMotion displays for the iPhone 13 support Pro 120Hz and variable refresh rates.
Apple’s iPhone 13 series is reportedly on schedule to be announced in September 2021. And only the top of the line Pro variants are expected to feature this 120Hz ProMotion display.
