Apple plans to equip the iPhone 13 series smartphones with touch-integrated OLED displays. According to ETNews website, there are claims that all new iPhone models will receive such panels in 2021. It is reported that the company has already ordered the appropriate screens from suppliers.
iPhone 13 series smartphones will receive touch-integrated OLED displays
How will touch integrated displays differ from those used in modern iPhones? Traditionally, the touch layer is installed separately, on top of the OLED panel itself. But from next year, if the information is confirmed, it will be integrated directly into the display itself.
Thus, the need for an additional layer will disappear. And this will make smartphones thinner. In addition, the cost of the devices will decrease.
Recall that this year Apple should release four models from the iPhone 12 series at once. We are talking about relatively inexpensive versions – the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, as well as two Pro-options, The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
All iPhone 12 5G Models To Come With OLED Displays
We all are excited about the upcoming iPhone 12 series. Many new features have arrived and are becoming a norm since the iPhone 11 series launch. Higher refresh rate and 5G are two of the features seen on 2020 smartphones and we expect iPhone 12 series to feature them. Talking about the display, Will we see a change this year, and get OLED displays on all iPhone 12 models?
As you may know, one of the controversies in which Apple is always involved is the use of LCD panels on their smartphones. To recall, iPhone XR which was launched at $700 came with an LCD panel underneath the fancy “Liquid Retina” Branding. Same is the case with iPhone 11 of last year, meanwhile, companies usually launch OLED panels at this price tag. OLED or organic light-emitting diode is more power-efficient, and at the same time are sharper in contrast and produces deeper blacks than liquid-crystal displays.
Thankfully, things will be different this time as all the four 5G iPhone 12 models will feature OLED displays. The lineup includes iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The next question however which arises which manufacture will Apple go with. As you know the biggest supplier of OLED panel is no other than Samsung, and they have been supplying the panels to Apple as well. However, Apple might opt for BOE, the China-based display maker. The reason behind choosing the Chinese display maker is clear, they want to lower their dependence on their biggest competitor. And one more reason is that OLED displays of Samsung are more expensive than BOE.
