Apple's higher-end iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max smartphones are said to get the higher-end 120Hz LTPO displays from Samsung, meanwhile, the regular iPhone 13 will have a display from LG and stay in the 60Hz club.

The new displays have the best Apple buzz words of course, which they're said to be more "technologically sophisticated" than the panels used on the current-gen iPhone 12 family of handsets. The move to LTPO technology will let Apple enjoy power savings, where it can individually light pixels up on the display versus the entire display. This will result in great power savings on the new iPhone.
