A new report claims that the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus models will not feature LPTO display which means they will not support 120Hz ProMotion tech and Always-On display.
Low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) is a special type of backplane tech on OLED displays which that supports a higher 120Hz refresh rate and Always-On display. It is also more power efficient as it reduces power consumption by changing the refresh rate.
iPhone 15 Pro models to feature LTPO OLED display screens, exclusively
In 2022, Apple widened the gap between standard and pro models by upgrading the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max with LTPO display technology to support advanced features like the Always-On display with a 1Hz refresh rate and advanced ProMotion technology, along with Dynamic Island.
Now, a Korean blogger @yeux1122 claims that iPhone 15 standard models will ship with OLED panels and would not support Always-On display with 120Hz refresh rate tech, it will be exclusively available on iPhone 15 Pro models.
Apple is said to have already made arrangements to deliver iPhone 15 series display panels to domestic companies, and will soon finalize details and prepare for mass production. What is confirmed here is that only the Pro Series will have a specification that supports LTPO 120 refresh rate, with the basic regular Plus model not having it in its requirements.
Recently, it was reported that Apple’s supplier BOE was facing technological problems in the production of LTPS OLED panels for the upcoming iPhone 15 suggesting that the tech company was not going to feature LTPO OLED panels in the standard models.
However, it is also speculated that the standard iPhone 15 models would feature Dynamic Island, the new interactive space on top of the iPhone 14 Pro display to show notifications, live updates, and other animations.
