According to a Korean media outlet, BOE Electronics would supply three times more iPhone screens in 2022 to Apple than this year. The Asian firm would then account for 20% of all production, just behind Samsung and LG. The OLED panels in question here are probably those that will equip the four different iPhone 14 models expected next September.
It seems there is a real revival for BOE, rejected by Apple when ordering the iPhone 12 for not having been ready on time. The company has multiple factories in the largest cities of China, notably in Beijing, Chengdu, Ordos and even Chongqing. Among its customers, we also find Huawei, which has notably equipped its Mate 20 Pro with its components.
What do we know about the iPhone 14 screens?
Needless to say that these are just rumors, Apple only announcing the technical sheet of its mobiles at the last moment, but several information concerning the display of its upcoming high-end iPhones have already reached us. . In particular, it is assumed that the 5.4-inch mini format will be completely abandoned, the fault of disappointing sales for previous generations.
Instead, users should see a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 “Max” landed, which will not have the same photo capabilities as the Pro but will have a large display, at a lower price than the Pro Max. . The “classic” 6.1-inch iPhone 14 would remain in the game, still with the iPhone 14 Pro (same size) and therefore a latest 6.7-inch model with triple back sensor.
120 Hz: not for everyone
The refresh rate of one hundred and twenty images per second would be reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, whose names also remain hypothetical. Indeed, we are not immune to an “iPhone 13s” or an “iPhone 13S” as we have seen at Apple in the past.
This technology, called ProMotion, also allows the frequency to be reduced when it does not need to be high (for example when reading a blog post) in order to conserve battery life. The iPhone 13 Pro Max can thus last up to ninety-five hours at a stretch under the best conditions, according to official figures provided by its manufacturer. These numbers are of course not always verified in reality, the tests allowing them to be obtained having been carried out in the laboratory and according to criteria which are not communicated to consumers.
