iPhone 13 Screens In Production
Production has kicked off for the OLED screens on Apple’s next iPhone, according to a Korean news site.
As reported on TheElec, the screens – sourced from Samsung and LG – will support 120Hz refresh rates at the high end, like the screen on Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra. Samsung will make 80 million panels for the top two models, while LG will produce 30 million units for the lower end.
According to TheElec’s sources, Samsung began production of the panels in the middle of May, with LG following “recently”. This is a month earlier than the panels for last year’s iPhone 12 series, which launched on October 23, and could indicate that Apple is planning to return to its usual September release window.
120Hz screens – which would likely only be available on the higher-end displays made by Samsung – would double the iPhone 12’s 60Hz refresh rate, making for a smoother and less blurry experience, especially for fast and intense content like games and sports streaming.
