Samsung and LG have started production of OLED panels for this year’s iPhone 13 series, reports South Korean outlet The Elec. Like last year, 2021’s lineup is also rumored to feature four models: 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, and 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Samsung is making 120Hz ProMotion displays for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max
It is believed that Samsung is manufacturing low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED panels with 120Hz support for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
LG is apparently working on conventional low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) TFT OLED panels for the iPhone 13 mini and the iPhone 13. These models are not expected to support a high refresh rate and will retain a 60Hz screen.
In all, Samsung is forecasted to manufacture 80 million display units for the new iPhones, and LG is expected to supply 30 million panels.
