Two iPhone 13 models rumored to be getting LTPO, 120Hz display upgrades

The iPhone 13 launch date – anticipated to be in September – is getting nearer and nearer, and the newest rumor across the Apple handset is that each of the Professional fashions are going to come back with LTPO, 120Hz show know-how on board.

That is as per well-known business analyst Ross Younger, who tweeted that the display improve would not simply be restricted to the costliest Professional Max mannequin. In a follow-up tweet, Younger confirmed that the 2 Professional handsets are anticipated to have the tech.

Rumors a couple of display and refresh fee improve for the iPhone have been swirling for some time now, all the best way again to earlier than the iPhone 12 appeared. It would seem that Apple finally has everything in place to make it happen this time around.

Apple already deploys LTPO OLED technology in the Apple Watch and in the iPad Pro tablets, so it’s really no surprise that it’s making its way to the iPhone as well – though it looks as though the standard iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 mini will miss out.

How LTPO works

LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) display tech essentially improves power efficiency while also allowing for a variable refresh rate – all the way up to 120Hz in this case, if the rumors are correct.

It’s thought that Apple has been reluctant to add LTPO to the iPhone series because of concerns about battery life, so we’re assuming that the engineers at the company have figured out a way to make it work without the demands on the battery being too great.

Neither the LTPO technology or the 120Hz refresh rate are new rumors as far as the iPhone 13 goes – we’ve been hearing supply chain rumblings since all the way back in November that the next Apple handsets would come with these screen upgrades.

Samsung has been tipped as the manufacturer supplying the high refresh rate panels for the iPhone 13 this year. Other recent rumors we’ve heard around the handset include talk of a minor processor and performance upgrade.
