The newest report came from The Elec mentions that Apple is planning to adopt LTPO high refresh rate display technology in the upcoming iPhone models. Previously we had rumors that Apple will use LG display technology for its upcoming iPhone 13 lineup but now confirmed by The Elec that Apple is planning to use Samsung display technology for the upcoming iPhone 13 lineup.

The report mentioned that Samsung is going to provide display units to Apple soon. For this Samsung will need to transition its OLED line dedicated to Apple to the latest display technology, switching to low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, or LTPO. That is expected to happen anytime soon. From the report of The Elec:

Samsung Display will convert its OLED line dedicated to its largest customer Apple into one that makes low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistor (TFT) within the first half of 2021, according to market research firm UBI Research.

Apple is not new in this LTPO display technology, Apple is already using an LTPO display technology in its Apple watch. The advantage of an LTPO display over the normal OLED display is the low power consumption. Also, with the help of LTPO display technology, Apple will be able to add a high refresh rate (Pro Motion) feature to its upcoming iPhone lineup. Almost all the smartphone manufacture these days including high refresh rate display on their smartphones and Apple fans are waiting for this feature for so long. So hopefully we will see Pro Motion display technology on this year's iPhone lineup. It is still not sure if Apple will choose a 90hz or 120hz refresh rate.

According to a famous Apple leaker and analyst, Apple will probably use this LTPO high refresh rate display on its PRO models (iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max).
