According to a Korean tech trade publication, Apple is set to use LG and Samsung displays in its upcoming iPhone 14 series. The two companies are already suppliers of hole-punched OLED displays.
However, the Korean firms are expected to provide a bigger share of the OLED panels for the Pro Max. This could be a good sign for the iPhone maker. The companies have worked together in the past and have excellent reputations in the industry.
Analyst Kuo also said that LG will supply the display panels for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This would be a change from the notch design used on the iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max.
The new iPhones will have a 120Hz screen, which will improve viewing angles. While the display panel will be supplied by Samsung and LG, the companies could work together in producing the entire screen.

The new iPhones will have a notch on the side. As a result, the screen will have a larger punch-hole than the previous models. While the Pro Max is the most expensive model in the series, it will be the most expensive.
The LTPO TFT technology allows for 120Hz refresh rate, which is the current standard for the iPhone. This means that both companies can supply the new OLED panels for the new models. The iPhone 14 will have a punch-hole display.
