South Korean giant Samsung has reportedly begun production of a 120Hz display for its laundered iPhone 13 Pro models. Other models of the series will come with an LTPS display.
Samsung has already started producing 120Hz LTPO panels for the upcoming iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, according to Korean publication The Elec. LG, on the other hand, has started the production of LTPS screens for more affordable representatives of the series.
Rumors have long circulated that Apple will bring ProMotion technology, which was released on the iPad Pro in 2017, to smartphones. According to reliable industry sources, the Californian company planned to equip the existing iPhone 12 with 120Hz displays but was unhappy with the power consumption of the panels at the time as a result of the tests. Let’s say that only Pro versions of iPhone 13 will get 120Hz screens, while iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini models will continue to have 60Hz screens.
Compared to previous leaks, the iPhone 13 will come with a smaller notch for the TrueDepth face scanning system at the top of the screen, and the thickness of the main camera block will increase due to the use of new cameras with more advanced optics. Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone later than usual due to problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. No such delay is expected this year, and the iPhone 13 series will be released in September.
