According to a DigiTimes report, the Pro models will come with a 120Hz ProMotion display. Apple will use the low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display on the iPhone 13 Pro series. Samsung and LG Display will be supplying the LTPO OLED panels for the upcoming 2021 iPhone. Let’s take a look at more details around the iPhone 13 series.

Apple iPhone 13 series could finally come with 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate LTPO display

Apple is likely to launch the iPhone 13 series in September. Ahead of the launch, new details of the devices have leaked online.

According to MacRumors, citing a DigiTimes report, the iPhone 13 Pro series will come with a 120Hz ProMotion display. We have seen the display tech on the iPad Pro models. Surprisingly, Apple has refrained from introducing the high refresh rate display on the iPhone series. This could be due to the tech consuming more battery than a standard 60Hz refresh rate screen. The Cupertino-based tech giant will also make use of LTPO OLED panels to help preserve some battery life. 

The report states that Samsung and LG Display have begun the conversion process from LTPS to LTPO OLED panels. It will likely be completed in the first half of 2021. However, the capacity will be lower than previously due to added steps in the development process. Apple might bring in China’s BOE to produce more LTPO displays.

Apple was expected to launch the iPhone 12 series with an LTPO 120Hz Promotion display. Rumours suggested that the company was contemplating choosing between 5G and a high refresh rate screen as including both would kill the battery faster than usual. Apple launched the iPhone 12 with 5G and seems like we will see a high-refresh-rate iPhone display later this year.

Currently, only the Pro models are tipped to get the 120Hz display. The vanilla iPhone 13 and 13 mini will come with a standard 60Hz screen. The notch on the upcoming iPhone is said to get smaller. More details here.
