Previously, Tianfeng International analyst Guo Mingchi said that Apple’s next year’s “iPhone 13” will have four models, similar in size to this year’s iPhone 12 series. According to the latest news, the OLED panels used in the next-generation iPhone 13 series are technologically more mature. However, because BOE’s OLED screen failed Apple’s review again, it is hopeless to supply iPhone 12/Pro. This means that next year’s iPhone 13 series will likely use panels produced by Samsung and LG Display.
Rumors say that Apple plans to use 120Hz ProMotion displays in at least two models in the iPhone product line next year, thanks to the shift to low-power LTPO OLED technology. LTPO provides a more power-efficient backplane that can turn individual pixels on and off on the display, and allows for better battery life.
The news broke that the two models using LTPO are likely to be Pro models, which are the models rumored to use ProMotion technology. The four 2021 iPhone models are also expected to use on-cell touch screens, which allows multi-touch functions to be embedded on top of thin film transistors (TFTs) instead of as separate components above the display.
