Apple is expected to launch iPhone 13 series in September and rumors claim that the iPhone 13 Pro models of the upcoming smartphone series will be equipped with Low-Temperature Polycrystalline Oxide (LTPO) OLED technology to support 120Hz ProMotion display. MacRumors reports that Cupertino tech giant might offer the (LTPO) OLED display in the entire iPhone 14 series expected to launch in 2022.
LG might supply (LTPO) OLED display for the new iPhone 14 series
Currently, Samsung and LG are rumored to be Apple’s OLED display suppliers for iPhone 13 lineup. The publisher claims that both display suppliers will continue to provide display technology to Apple for iPhone 14 series as well.
With that new lineup, a new report from The Elec offers some color as to the state of Apple’s display suppliers next year. The report says that LG, which currently only produces LTPS displays for Apple’s low-end iPhones, will convert its production lines to supply Apple with displays capable of a 120Hz refresh rate.
If true, both of Apple’s main display suppliers, Samsung and LG, will be able to provide LTPO OLED displays, which may give Apple the option to include ProMotion technology across its entire iPhone 14 lineup.
Although iPhone 13 series has yet to launch, several details of the iPhone 14 series are already shared by industry sources. Tech veteran, Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will abandon with 5.4-inch mini models in the 2022 iPhone series and will ship two 6.1-inch models and two 6.7-inch models at a cheaper price. The 2022 iPhone models will offer an 8k video and a 48-megapixel camera. He recently shared that the series will come with an improved ultra-wide lens for sharper and crisper photographs.
Looking more long-term, Kuo today shared additional information on the iPhone 14, destined for 2022. According to Kuo, while autofocus on the iPhone 13 ultra-wide camera will be limited to the high-end Pro models only, Apple plans to expand autofocus for the ultra-wide camera to all four models of the iPhone 14 lineup.
Another report claimed that the 2022 smartphone series will be powered by advanced silicon built on a 4nm process.
