Samsung tipped to be the exclusive supplier of LTPO OLED for iPhone 13

Samsung tipped to be the exclusive supplier of LTPO OLED for iPhone 13

The Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini.

Apple is likely to continue using Samsung's OLED panels for the iPhone 13 next year.

Korean publication TheElec claims that Samsung is the exclusive supplier of low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) thin-film transistors (TFT) OLED panels for the iPhone 13. The Pro models are expected to use these LTPO OLED panels which can support 120Hz refresh rates. 

TheElec reported in November that the iPhone 13 could be using LTPO display technology from LG. However, it now seems that LG is only ready to supply in 2022. Apple is said to have accepted LG's request to supply for the iPhone 13, but it is likely a strategy to diversify the supply chain.
