Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max look set to get a 120Hz Pro Motion display if a new report is correct.

According to The Elec, two of Apple’s 2021 iPhones will use low-temperature polycrystalline oxide thin-film transistors, allowing the screens to reach higher refresh rates.

Samsung Display is expected to be the main supplier of the new screens, with LG Display and BOE picking up the slack. In fact, Samsung Display expects there to be as many as 180 million new OLED-powered iPhones manufactured next year – it’ll make around 140 million of those, according to the report.

Two out of the four models launching next year will use low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LPTO) thin-film transistors (TFT). LPTO technology is needed for the screens to reach 120Hz refresh rate. All four models will use on-cell touch screens as well.

Apple was rumored to be adding 120Hz Pro Motion to the iPhone 12 Pro, but as we now know, that didn’t come to fruition with Apple reportedly concerned about the battery life implications.

Samsung Display is expected to see increased supply of OLED panels for iPhones next year as Apple is expected to ship the highest number of OLED-using iPhones in 2021.

Apple is expected to ship between 160 million to 180 million units of iPhones that use OLED panels next year, sources within Samsung Display said.

Apple is expected to announce its new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro lineup in September next year after analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said recently that he didn’t expect the company to have to delay the launch as it did this year.
