At least one iPhone 13 series model might arrive with a 120Hz display

The Apple iPhone 13 series is a few months away from its official launch. If things continue on the right track, the next generation Apple iPhone will be launched in September. As we near the launch, new details are emerging on the web. The latest report reveals some basic details about the display of iPhone 13.

According to DigiTimes, Pro models will come with ProMotion display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. Specifically, we are expected to see LTPO technology in iPhone 13 Pro. Samsung and LG will supply LTPO OLED panels for the upcoming 2021 iPhone series. Let's take a look at more details about the iPhone 13 series.

iPhone 13 series could finally come with a120HZ refresh rate LTPO display

We've seen the technology of that display on the models of iPad Pro. Surprisingly, Apple has refrained from introducing the high refresh rate feature in iPhones. This may be due to the fact that this technology consumes more battery power compared to the standard 60Hz screen. The California-based tech giant will make use of LTPO OLED panels to help preserve some battery life.

The report mentions that Samsung and LG Display have started an industrial transformation from LTPS displays to LTPO OLED displays. It is likely to be completed in the first half of 2021. However, capacity will be lower than before due to additional steps in the development process. Apple BOE in China may produce more LTPO displays.

Apple was expected to launch the series of iPhone 12 with LTPO 120Hz display. Rumors indicated that the company was considering choosing between 5G and a high refresh rate screen because including both would cause the battery to drain faster than usual. Apple launched the iPhone 12 with 5G and it seems that we will see the next iPhone with a 120Hz display.

With regard to the phones that will support that feature, it is expected that there will be two versions of the Pro, while the Standard version and the Pro version will come with a screen with a standard 60 Hz refresh rate.
