The iPhone 12 family is not yet a reality, however the world of rumors is moving much faster than the companies themselves, and so here we are again talking about the iPhones that will be released in 2021.
This time it is not speculation about the design of the next smartphones from Apple, but let's go back to dealing with the theme of OLED panels, already touched on the occasion of the appearance of the first rumors on the adoption of LTPO technology. Today's news come from a report published by the South Korean newspaper ETNews, which suggests that the Cupertino house has started placing orders for a particular type of OLED panel equipped with integrated touch screen sensors.
Currently, in fact, the components dedicated to the detection of the user's touch are positioned on an additional film placed above the display, effectively making them two separate elements. Their integration will lead to the creation of thinner displays and should have positive economic implications, as it will reduce the production cost of the panel, especially those supplied by Samsung, at least according to rumors.
OLED displays with integrated touch sensors should become the standard on all iPhone models presented at the end of 2021, but it seems that a taste of this technology will already arrive with the iPhone 12, more precisely on the 5.4 "and 6.7" variants. The OLED panels of these models, in fact, will be made by Samsung – already able to apply this technology – while the screens of the 6.1 "variants will be produced by LG and will adopt the classic film with separate sensors. We just have to wait for the launch of the next iPhones to test for hand any differences and advantages.
