iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max are rumoured to come with 120Hz displays. The iPhone 13 range will have two phones offering 120Hz refresh rate. Claimed by The Elec, Samsung is said to to be the sole supplier of 120Hz screens for these models. Both the iPhone 13 models will use LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) OLED screens.
These panels can run at up to 120Hz, while the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will still use the LTPS (low-temperature polycrystalline silicon) OLED panels as the iPhone 12 series.
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S21 has been rumoured to come with a 120Hz display as well. The cheaper iPhone 13 models, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will have the same 60Hz refresh rate as the current iPhone models.
The Elec further added that all four iPhone 14 models will apparently feature an LTPO OLED screen. While that’s a long way from now till September 2022, Apple is said to be using multiple suppliers for the displays for iPhone 14 models than solely relying on Samsung.
