Apple iPhone 14 rumors: Not every model will get a 120Hz ProMotion display
Only a few days after Apple has officially launched the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro at Tuesday's California Streaming event, rumors about its upcoming iPhone 14 generation are already spreading. If these very early speculations are correct, Apple does not plan to equip all of its iPhone 14 models with displays with a high 120Hz refresh rate.
According to a report by the Korean website The Elec, Apple will still utilize LTPS OLED panels for its iPhone 14 in 2021. This consequently means that this particular model cannot feature a refresh rate of 120Hz, which Apple's marketing team calls ProMotion. This rumor directly contradicts previous leaks which claimed that Apple will put a ProMotion display in every single iPhone 14 model.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are Apple's very first smartphones with a refresh rate higher than the usual 60Hz, while this feature has been widely available in Android smartphones for years. Even more affordable phones like the OnePlus Nord N200 (from US$239 on Amazon) sport a 90Hz display. It may be disappointing to hear that Apple will not equip all iPhone 14 versions with a ProMotion display, but this also means that the Cupertino-based company will apparently offer a lower-end iPhone 14 model, which should be priced below the important US$1,000 mark.
