Samsung to begin production of 120Hz Display for iPhone 13 Pro Models

Korean giant and a major rival to Apple – Samsung will reportedly supply and begin production of the iPhone 13 lineup. The iPhone 13 will reportedly sport a “ProMotion” display – a first time for Apple.

The folks at The Elec have reported that Samsung will produce the displays for the upcoming iPhone 13 Pro & Pro Max, while LG will supply the displays for the lower-end models for this year.

“This is a month faster than for the ‌iPhone 12‌ last year. Apple launched ‌iPhone 12‌ later than usual due to problems with procuring components for the phones from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Samsung Display began production for the OLED panels to be used in ‌iPhone 13‌ mid-month. LG Display began production recently, people with direct knowledge of the matter said.”

“Samsung began organic material deposition a week earlier than LG. For the module process, where the panel is finished, Samsung’s started around ten days earlier than LG.”

Apple requested both companies to independently produce the displays to save time to prevent a delay in the improved display like with last year’s iPhone 12.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple was forced to delay the 120Hz display technology from the iPhone 12 lineup, this is one of the reasons why the iPhone 12 did not have a ProMotion display.

Another report suggests that TSMC has started producing the iPhone 13 chip.

Other than a 120Hz display, the iPhone 13 is rumored to feature a smaller notch, bigger cameras, and a matte black option.
