Apple's iPhone 17, iPhone 17 Plus may eventually feature 120Hz LTPO OLED displays, report claims

Apple iPhone 17 and 17 Plus will come with LTPO panels

iPhone 15 Pro
  • according to a report According to The Elec, the iPhone 17 and 17 Plus are likely to come with LTPO OLED panels with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
  • This would be a significant jump, as non-Pro models of the iPhone series have always had an OLED panel capped at 60Hz.
  • Another important thing to consider is that the new panel is predicted to be an LTPO panel, which means an adaptive refresh rate that can range from 120Hz to as low as 1Hz.
  • Along with the LTPO display, the panel will also bring always-on display functionality to non-Pro iPhone models, displaying all relevant information on the display without additional battery cost.
  • Always-on display will be improved battery life Which is a big upgrade to the iPhone 17 and iPhone 17 Plus smartphones.
  • However, this change depends on BOE, a display maker that also supplies LTPO panels to Huawei.
  • According to The Elec, BOE sent some display samples to Apple last year, but the iPhone 16 non-Pro models are unlikely to get LTPO panels due to timing constraints.
  • BOE panels will also pass Apple's display tests, and thus the iPhone 17 and 17 Plus are a more realistic target for LTPO panel implementation.
