According to a South Korean source, Apple would set its sights on a 120 Hz LTPO OLED screen signed Samsung for its future iPhone 13 Pro.
While the smartphones premium Competitors have adopted it for a long time, and even mid-range devices are starting to integrate it, the iPhone remains stuck at 60 Hz and still does not have the right to a 120 Hz panel. However, the year last, many rumors flowed in this direction. Apple had finally given up at the last moment to integrate a high refresh rate, fearing that this would have too much impact on autonomy, in addition to the arrival of 5G.
This year could be the right one! It is rumored that Apple should finally switch to a 120 Hz screen on its future iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, but the standard iPhone 13 would not be allowed to do so. Now we know a little more about this future slab, thanks to indiscretions that have reached the ears of the South Korean media The Elec.
A 120 Hz LTPO OLED panel in the line of sight
In a new article, The Elec explains that Apple would once again turn to Samsung Display to produce the screens for its future iPhones. The South Korean firm should in particular provide LTPO 120 Hz OLED panels to the Californian giant for the iPhone 13 Pro. This type of panel, which can be found in particular on Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, is able to automatically adjust its refresh rate in order to save power.
In addition, it would also allow Apple to offer, for the very first time, a mode Always-On on his iPhone 13 Pro. It is also this same LTPO technology that is used by the Apple Watch, which precisely offers a permanent display. It remains to wait for the month of September and the presentation of the new iPhones to be sure, but if we could already have more precise news during the summer, the production of a new iPhone usually starting in July.
