iPhone 13 has not even hit the market and already iPhone 14 leaks are surfacing. Although the Cupertino giant is apparently busy preparing its 2021 iPhone family. A new leak suggests that LG Display is planning to kick off the production of its 120Hz displays based on the LTPO technology. Although it will be a part of the 2022 models next year.

According to reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 range will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor. We are expecting it may come in four variants including the vanilla, Max, Pro, and Pro Max. These new rumors are different from the iPhone 13 models. The latter can have 120Hz displays limited to the Pro models.

Meanwhile, Elec reports that LG Display started internal talks with manufacturer Avaco. It will help to obtain LTPO-manufacturing equipment for its display facilities for iPhone 14. It suggests that the ongoing development is aiming to eventually offer LTPO OLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate.

On the other hand, LTPO displays on the ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro and ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max, Apple will use panels produced by Samsung. It reportedly began production in May. However, for the lower-end ‌iPhone 13‌ and ‌iPhone 13‌ mini, which will feature LTPS displays, Apple will rely on LG. This is unlike the rumor we are hearing on iPhone 14 series.

Whereas, another report predicts that Apple will launch an affordable iPhone with a 6.7-inch display – iPhone 14 Max. Moreover, it will launch “the lowest price ever” for the company for a device sporting a display of this size. Kuo also reportedly stated that the device could be priced at $900 (roughly Rs 66,800). The report seems to indicate that the iPhone mini size will be done away with by 2022.
