Samsung has been one of the leading suppliers of display panels for the Apple iPhone and the partnership is expected to continue. This is despite the fact that Apple has already increased the load on two other display providers – LG Display and BOE.
According to a new leak, Samsung Display will ship 120Hz OLED displays for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models.
Future iPhone 13 Pro models are expected to use low temperature polycrystalline oxide (LPTO) thin film transistor (TFT) OLED panels. For those not in the know, LTPO OLED is needed just to support 120Hz refresh rate. The use of LTPO technology will result in a more energy efficient backplane that is responsible for turning individual pixels on and off on the display, delivering 120Hz refresh rates without significantly impacting battery life.
