On April 9, a new report from DigiTimes further confirmed the previous leaked information related to the iPhone 13 Pro series-this model will use Samsung’s 120Hz LTPO OLED panel. Earlier news broke that Samsung and LG Display will provide Apple LTPO OLED panels for the upcoming iPhone.
Both display manufacturers are currently converting their LTPS display production lines to LTPO OLED panels, which is expected to be completed in the first half of 2021. This conversion will lead to a decline in its production capacity. In addition, BOE has also established a dedicated production line for Apple and is testing the iPhone’s LTPO panel.
The report further added that the iPhone 13 Pro product line will reduce power consumption by as much as 20%, which is likely to be attributed to the LTPO OLED panel and the more efficient A15 chip. It is rumored that Apple will use 120Hz LTPO OLED panels on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max this year, while the non-Pro iPhone 13 models will continue to use 60Hz OLED panels. Currently, Samsung has used 120Hz LTPO OLED panels on its flagship products Galaxy S21 and Note 20 Ultra devices.
It is expected that the use of the LTPO panel will enable Apple to dynamically adjust the refresh rate of the iPhone 13 Pro display to increase battery life, which will be similar to the ProMotion technology Apple has used in the iPad Pro series. In addition to using the 120Hz LTPO OLED panel, Apple is expected to use a thinner notch on the iPhone 13 series. There are rumors that the new version of the iPhone will also undergo other changes, including a faster and more efficient 5G modem, a larger battery, and an improved ultra-wide-angle camera.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Mobile phone battery
