The iPhone 13 range of smartphones was unveiled last week, with the two new ‘Pro’ models finally bringing out the coveted 120Hz OLED screen.
However, truth be told, this is nothing new at all. nova in the world of smartphones, as the first device capable of displaying more than 60Hz hit shelves in 2017. And of course, since then, it’s a feature that has been spreading, and at the moment, we can already find it in almost all price ranges.
Well, that’s exactly why Apple is already getting ready to launch more models with this type of screen. In other words, in 2022, there will be only one iPhone with a 60Hz screen, most likely the cheapest model! (In our opinion, the new SE model.)
In 2022, only one iPhone will hit the market without 120Hz
So the iPhone 13 was announced less than a week ago, however, we’ve already started to hear about details of what’s coming next. We are obviously talking about the iPhone 14 range, which according to the latest ‘leaks’, will fully adopt the much-desired ProMotion screen, that is, the ability to reach 120Hz.
After all, according to the highly regarded The Elec, in the next range, only one model will have a screen limited to 60hz.
However, in our opinion, it doesn’t make sense for this to happen with the mini model. (Even because last year it wasn’t very successful, something that shouldn’t change much in this new generation). Therefore, it is possible that Apple will give up on this model next year, make some changes to the ‘budget’ SE model, and this yes, be the cheapest iPhone, and for that reason, limited to 60Hz.
Why in 2022?
It’s very simple, for now, the big supplier of OLED screens is Samsung! Of course, knowing how much it is worth, and how important it is on Apple’s assembly production lines, is expensive (very expensive). That said, next year, all indications are that LG will already be able to supply OLED screens in droves. Consequently, this will also ensure a very significant drop in the apple giant’s production costs.
