It has been rumored repeatedly that some models in the iPhone The 13 Series will have 120Hz screens, and now there’s even more evidence that these high-refresh rate displays are made for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 per max.
According to a report by TheElec, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be equipped with LTPO AMOLED 120 Hz displays manufactured exclusively by the Samsung Display Division. In addition, Samsung Electro-Mechanics will provide the hard flexible printed circuit boards (RFPCB) in the new iPhones.
RFPCBs are more expensive than traditional FPCBs and are used to connect OLED displays to the internal mainboard. RFPCBs are rigid but can still be folded, allowing for more sophisticated designs. Samsung Display will reportedly ship 110 million screens for iPhones this year, another 50 million from LG Display and 9 million from BOE – the latter two are believed to only ship 60 Hz screens for the iPhone iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics apparently wants to close the business because it hasn’t made enough profit in recent years. It supplied boards for that iPhone 12 last year and will apparently do so again for that iPhone 13, but it might still be out of business after that, according to this report.
We expect that iPhone The release date of 13 is set to be September 2021, but this could change in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. For the past 10 years, Apple has consistently showcased its flagship phones at an event in early September and released the phones 10 days later. That changed in 2020 due to the pandemic, and the phones were delayed beyond their usual window.
Normally, we’d expect Apple to stick with that September window, but apparently the 2020 postponement resulted in higher sales of the phones. That may mean Apple is deciding to stick with this new window.
Meanwhile, another analyst has said something similar to the iPhone 13 series are apparently on sale in the third week of September – which means an announcement at the beginning of the month. However, it is possible that one or more models will not go on sale until October.
