|iPhone 13 display, Samsung and LG are responsible|
It has been confirmed that Samsung Display and LG Display are responsible for the display of Apple's latest smartphone 'iPhone 13'.
According to the display industry on the 17th, it is reported that Samsung Display is supplying mobile organic light emitting diode (OLED) panels to the iPhone 13 high-end iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. LG Display supplies OLED to the entry-level ‘iPhone 13’ and ‘iPhone 13 mini’. Apple unveiled four iPhone 13 series in California on the 14th (local time).
BOE, a Chinese company, also tried to secure the initial supply of the iPhone 13, but it is known that it was hampered by technical problems. Apple also borrowed all iPhone 12 OLED panels from Korean companies. Samsung Display put the Pro and Mini, and LG Display put it in the regular model.
An industry official said, “BOE also tried to supply iPhone 13, but failed and I know that it is only put into refurbished (replacement) products.
Samsung Display started monopolizing the supply when Apple installed OLED in the iPhone X in 2017. This is thanks to the development of small and medium-sized OLEDs ahead of competitors. A Samsung Display official emphasized, “In the past, only Samsung Display made small and medium-sized OLEDs.
The refresh rate of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max displays is 120Hz. It is twice as large as the existing 60Hz. The refresh rate is a value that indicates how many times the screen changes per second. If it is 120Hz, 120 still images change rapidly for 1 second, indicating that the object is moving. The higher the number, the softer the dynamic subject can be seen.
As the mobile OLED market grew, LG Display also stepped in. The policy of diversifying the supply chain without allowing Apple to monopolize supply to one parts company also gave strength to LG Display.
