120Hz on iPhone 13 looks like a done deal as Samsung reportedly gears up for LTPO production
This news comes from The Elec, which cites UBI Research. Per the report, Samsung Display is in the process of converting its low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) TFT OLED line reserved for Apple into an LTPO TFT conveyor.
This is where Samsung's LTPO tech comes in. LTPO panels are more power-efficient than traditional OLED screens and also allow for a dynamic refresh rate. They could also pave way for an always on display on the iPhone.
The report reiterates that only the higher-end iPhone 13 models will come with LTPO panels, which means the mini and the regular version will not offer a high refresh rate.
LG and BOE are supposedly only going to make panels for the non-pro models.
