San Francisco, July 7 | Tech giant Apple may offer its ProMotion display technology, which allows for a higher 120Hz refresh rate, across all models of the 2022 iPhone lineup.
It’s widely reported that Apple plans to include a 120Hz refresh rate in this year’s iPhone 13 lineup, but is exclusive to the high-end iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max only.
The Genuine iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini are not expected to include ProMotion technology. AppleInsider reports that for the iPhone 13 lineup, Apple is listing two different suppliers for its displays.
For the LTPO display on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, Apple will use panels manufactured by Samsung, which reportedly began production in May.
On the other hand, for the lower-end iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, which will have LTPS displays, Apple will rely on LG.
For the 2022 iPhones, Apple is changing the structure of its mobile lineup.
Unlike the iPhone 12 and the upcoming iPhone 13, which includes one 5.4-inch, two 6.1-inch and one 6.7-inch models, the “iPhone 14” series will be temporarily renamed in 2022 from two 6.1-inch and two 6.7-inch Will be together model, the report said.
Along with that new lineup, a new report from The Elec provides some color as to the state of Apple’s display suppliers next year.
The report says that LG, which currently only produces LTPS displays for Apple’s low-end iPhones, will convert its production lines to supply Apple with displays capable of a 120Hz refresh rate.
According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, some models in the 2022 iPhone series will not feature a notch, but a “punch-hole display design” that is similar to some of Samsung’s high-end Galaxy smartphones.
Kuo said the new design will debut at least in the high-end models, possibly meaning that the lower-end devices will retain the same notch-based design.
In the iPhone 13 lineup, Apple will likely market ProMotion display technology as the high-end iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max that deserve their “Pro” naming.
