According to the leaked information, two models of the iPhone 13 family will use low-consumption LTPO displays made by LG and Samsung to offer the 120 Hz refresh rate.
It hasn’t been long since the introduction of Apple’s new flagship , the iPhone 12 family ; However, new rumors and information have been released about the iPhone 13, most of which have focused on this single principle: The iPhone 13 comes with a low-power LTPO display and the ability to upgrade to 120 Hz. Following repeated rumors about this, the WccfTech website is reaffirming its allegation , citing ETNews.
According to a new report, Samsung and LG Display are tasked with building OLED displays with “Low Temperature Crystalline Oxide” (LTPO) technology to deliver the 120Hz refresh rate of the iPhone 13. It is also said that the two companies will experience an increase in revenue in 2021 due to the provision of this type of technology and due to the partnership with the technology world giant.
the report cites only Samsung and LG as suppliers of iPhone 13 screens; Earlier rumors had it that Apple had diversified its product chain for displays and touch panels, and BOE, the Chinese display maker, after failing several times in Apple’s quality tests, finally got a percentage of the OLED panels required for the iPhone. has taken.
According to ETNews, of the four iPhone models to be launched next year, two (possibly Pro models) will use low-power LTPO OLED displays, paving the way for a 120Hz refresh rate. Apparently, the other two models still have the same 60 Hz OLED displays that use polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) thin-film transistors .
According to the report, next year’s iPhones are likely to cost more to produce; But evidence suggests that higher production costs may not affect the final price. The use of low temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) technology leads to the production of more efficient displays that are responsible for turning on and off the various pixels of the display.
LTPO technology allows the smartphone to change the image refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz as needed and increase energy efficiency.
All in all, the technology can provide 120Hz refresh rate for smoother and more smooth navigation, smoother animations and improved command response without slowing down. Low-power displays will be one of Apple’s main goals; Because all iPhone 13 models are expected to use upgraded 5G modems, and as you know, these modems are very effective in battery consumption, and this is probably one of the reasons why Cupertino residents have used 120 Hz panels in their iPhone 1 family.
Not to mention that in the mentioned report, one of the experts in the display industry commented and believes that due to the high expectations and significant sales of iPhones, Apple will probably improve the schedule of introduction and release of its products and probably in the same period of September 2021 (September 1400). Introduces the new generation of iPhones and launches them without delay.
