iPhone 14 Pro & iPhone 14 Max may not get 120Hz screens
Although Apple was the first to deliver a high refresh rate to mobile devices with the iPad Pro in 2017, Android manufacturers were the first to provide 90Hz and 120Hz phones, and it’s pretty uncommon to find high-refresh-rate Android mid-rangers these days.
Apple does not appear to be in a hurry to make this a normal feature on its phones, and according to a fresh rumor, the ProMotion technology will only be available on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
The refresh rate refers to how many times a picture on the screen is changed every second. The majority of smartphones feature 60Hz screens, but newer models with 90Hz and 120Hz displays make information look smoother and more responsive.
Apple’s implementation is known as ProMotion, and the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max were the first phones to have it last year. Apple is expected to release two standard models this year, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and the 6.7-inch iPhone Max, as well as two Pro models, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Initially, it was thought that only the Pros would have 120Hz panels, but then a report surfaced that Apple was contemplating fitting a 120Hz screen to the Max as well. All four versions will sport a 120Hz panel, according to recent reports.
Ross Young, a very well-known industry insider, has debunked those reports.
He states that BOE, the Chinese display manufacturer that would most likely provide the panels for the non-Pro variants, is now unable to produce the sort of OLED displays required to allow a dynamic refresh rate.
A low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) screen is expected to be used in the iPhone 14 and 14 Max.
The Pro versions, on the other hand, are expected to have low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) technology, which allows a display to modify the refresh rate according to the content being presented in order to extend the battery life.
The LTPO panels will be supplied by Samsung – and maybe LG – while the LTPS displays will be produced by BOE for the iPhone 14 series.
In addition, the Pro versions are slated to ditch the notch in favor of a hole and pill cutouts style. These variations may also include a new 48MP sensor, which might let them outperform today’s finest camera phones.
Amazing upgrades to the iPhone 14 series. New features include a double hole-punch display, a flat camera lens, a complete redesign, a thicker titanium frame, no SIM card tray, 48MP, 8K recording, and more!
