The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max may be entitled to a 120 Hz screen. And if that happens, then it will be thanks to Samsung.
The iPhone 12 have been widely criticized because of the refresh rate of their panel. While 90 and 120 Hz screens have become considerably more popular on high-end smartphones in 2020, Apple has chosen to equip its phones with 60 Hz screens.
Although the company has not explained the reason for its choice, some sources have speculated that this decision was conditioned by the arrival of 5G on the iPhone 12.
120 Hz for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max?
To maintain proper autonomy, the Apple brand would have chosen to ignore 120 Hz.
Fortunately, it will not be the same for the iPhone 13. Well not if we are to believe The Elec . According to our colleagues, at least two of the models expected in September should be equipped with 120 Hz LTPO OLED screens. And not surprisingly, the two models in question would also be the most expensive. It would therefore be the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
But that's not all. The Elec also indicates that these tiles will all come from the same supplier, namely Samsung. LG, for its part, would not have the necessary infrastructure to fulfill Apple's order book. At least not for this year.

Our colleagues also indicate that all iPhone 13 launched next year will be equipped with an OLED screen. Which, once again, will not surprise many people. This was already the case this year and it is hard to imagine Apple going back on its new smartphones.
On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 should be limited for their part to a refresh rate of 60 Hz. It is also very likely that they will go a little less far than their comrades in the field of photography, and this although some observers expect all devices in the range to be equipped with LiDAR .
