Samsung Display will make better panels for the iPhone 14 Pro duo than for the vanilla models

We’ve known for a while that the vanilla iPhone 14 duo won’t have ProMotion screens (Apple’s marketing term for high refresh rate), but now publishing the Elec provides details on the exact type of displays that will be used.

The vanilla iPhone 14 (6.1”) and iPhone 14 Max (6.7”) will use LTPS backplanes and what Samsung calls the M11 material set. This is the set of ingredients needed to make the display panel. The M Series material sets are reserved for Apple’s iPhones and Samsung’s premium Galaxy phones.

The iPhone 14 Pro (6.1″) and 14 Pro Max (6.7″) will instead use an LTPO backplane to enable the ProMotion feature. They will also use the newly developed M12 material set.

For reference, the Galaxy S22+ and S22 Ultra used the M11 set, the S22 got the older M10 set. The upcoming Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4 will be the first to use the new M12 material set.

Samsung will supply display panels for all four iPhone 14 models and has reportedly received an order for 80 million panels.

LG will also join in, building panels for the vanilla iPhone 14 and for the flagship iPhone 14 Pro Max. These are made with the RS-L material set. Last year LG built iPhone 13 panels with the previous RS-K set.

The Elecs report makes no mention of BOE, which reportedly landed a small order of panels, though not without some difficulty.
