Following a report confirming ProMotion support, regular iPhone 14 models are reportedly coming with 60Hz displays instead of featuring 120Hz screens just like the current iPhone 13 Pro models.
Rumors regarding the regular iPhone 14 models – being iPhone 14 mini and iPhone 14 – supporting 120Hz ProMotion is getting to a 50-50 chance as a new report by Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) responded to a Twitter user asking them if there are any expectations that the upcoming non-Pro iPhone 14 models will support 120Hz ProMotion display just like the latest iPhone 13 Pro devices.
“No, responded Young, addressing that “BOE doesn’t have enough LTPO capacity” and that the panels “have yet to ship any LTPO panels.” Young ended with a prediction of ProMotion displays next year: “Would be quite risky. Maybe in 2023…”
This means that due to Apple’s display supplier BOE’s lack of LTPO displays, the non-Pro models are ruled out of the ProMotion club for at least one more year.
Apple’s upcoming devices are expected by many to sport big features coming, such as a 48MP camera, an iPhone 4-like design, a hole-punch screen, and many more. But the display is still the biggest question when it comes to all the lineup. Here is a list of which suppliers we expect to supply the four devices of the 2022 lineup:
- iPhone 14 mini – LG Display (OLED)
- iPhone 14 – LG Displays (OLED)
- iPhone 14 Pro – Samsung (LTPO)
- iPhone 14 Pro Max – Samsung (LTPO)
No since BOE doesn’t have enough LTPO capacity and have yet to ship any LTPO panels. Would be quite risky. Maybe in 2023…
