iPhone 13 Pro Models to Get 120Hz AMOLED Displays Supplied by Samsung

Apple's new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max versions are highly speculated to offer OLED Panels of up to a 120Hz refresh rate, resulting in smoother content and scrolling, as more rumors continue surfacing.

We’ve been hearing for a while that iPhones will be shifting to 120 Hz this year, and today a recent article from Korea roughly confirms it while also adding some interesting new details.

The new LTPO AMOLED displays with 120 Hz refresh rates are said to be exclusive to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max and will be manufactured by Samsung. Furthermore, Samsung Electro-Mechanics can include rigid-flexible printed circuit boards (RFPCB).

Youngpoong Electronics, a South Korean PCB manufacturer, is also expected to supply RFPCB to Apple through Samsung Display. Youngpoong was introduced to the supply chain because Samsung Electro-Mechanics might leave the RFPCB segment after the release of the iPhone 13.

In 2019, Youngpoong supplied RFPCB to Apple via LG Display. However, its stock of iPhone boards fell last year after Cupertino opted to make LG Display use multiplex FPCB for its OLED panels instead of RFPCB.

Meanwhile, the two higher-tier iPhones this year that will use RFPCB will have low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED panels.

LTPO OLED is needed for a 120Hz refresh rate screen. These panels will be supplied exclusively by Samsung Display.

A 120Hz refresh rate screen necessitates the use of LTPO OLED. Samsung Display will be the sole supplier of these displays.

According to Omdia reports, Samsung Display will supply 110 million OLED panels for iPhones (both iPhone 12 and iPhone 13) this year, followed by LG Display at 50 million and BOE at 9 million. The exact number of OLED panels supplied to Apple for the iPhone 13 will not be known until July, when manufacturing starts.
