These days, with the smartphone market being as matured as it is, the improvements we’re seeing from generation to generation feel rather incremental so any changes tend to be a bit more subtle than back in the day. Such could be the case for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14.
According to a report from The Elec, they claim that Apple’s iPhone 14’s OLED display could actually utilize Samsung’s new M12 OLED materials set. While not much is known right now, a report from OLED-Info (via Patently Apple) revealed that the M-series material set actually adds brightness to the OLED display, so it is possible that with the use of the M12, we could be looking at an even brighter display than the iPhone 13.
This new material set is also rumored to be used by Samsung in their upcoming foldable phones as well, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Samsung’s foldables tend to be announced before the iPhone, so assuming that is true for this year, we could get a glimpse at what we might be able to expect from the display of the iPhone 14.
That being said, we’re not sure how many users might actually be able to tell the difference in day-to-day usage. We imagine that many users probably have automatic adjustments turned on, and since displays are rarely cranked to maximum brightness to save on battery, like we said, we’re not sure if the differences will be obvious. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see.
