Apple is expected to use OLED panels for all four next generation iPhone models; however, only the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will get Samsung's LTPO OLED panels which support a 120Hz refresh rate.
Samsung Display supplied LTPO OLED for the first time for Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Note20 Ultra last year. Samsung calls the technology Adaptive Frequency or hybrid oxide and polycrystalline silicon (HOP). Samsung Display is looking to transfer some of its A3 line at Asan for LTPO TFT. The line has a production capacity of 105,000 sheets per month. Around 60,000 of that will be transferred to LTPO TFT.
While LG won't be able to supply its LTPO OLED panels to Apple this year, it is aiming to supply them in 2022 when Apple is said to move to the display technology for all its iPhone models.
