iPhone 14 Pro And Pro Max Hole-Punch Displays Rumored To Be Sourced From Samsung And LG
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are rumored to be packing new hole-punch displays, with a new report claiming that Samsung and LG will be the two companies tasked with providing them.
According to a new report by The Elec, Apple will use both LG and Samsung for the 2022 flagship devices, with the notch being killed off completely. This backs up previous claims by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that at least Apple’s two high-end devices will do away with the notch next year.
The same report confirms that the displays will continue to offer 120Hz ProMotion support, something that was added to iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max earlier this year.
LG Display will be supplying low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistor (TFT) OLED panels for Apple’s iPhones launching next year, TheElec has learned.
LTPO TFT supports 120Hz refresh rate and is an advanced technology that smartphone makers apply to their premium OLED panels for premium smartphones.
It’s thought that Samsung will be the main supplier of displays that will be used in the larger iPhone 14 Pro Max, too.
Apple’s 2022 lineup is expected to consist of four devices, but with the loss of a mini offering. Instead, an iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be joined by iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max if previous rumors are to be believed.
