San Francisco: Apple plans to launch four new iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro as well as iPhone 14 Pro Max handsets next year and now a new report has claimed that the iPhone 14 Max could be equipped with a 120Hz LTPO display. .

The news comes days after LG successfully produced 120Hz LTPO display panels and secured a large order from Apple for the same, PhoneArena reports. A low temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display is a special type of backplane technology designed for OLED displays.

The iPhone 14 Max will be the successor to the iPhone 14 Mini and will feature a large 6.7-inch 120Hz LTPO display. The screen will be the same size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Older iPhone 14 Pro models were designed to feature punch-holes as well as 8 GB of RAM. The 6.06-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max were designed to use LG Display LTPO 120Hz OLED panels. In addition, Apple also plans to release iPhone models without SIM location by September 2022.

Earlier this week, a rumor from Brazilian website Blog do iPhone claimed that iPhone 15 Pro models released in 2023 may not have a physical SIM card slot. However, a new report from MacRumors indicates that Apple has advised major U.S. carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only smartphones by September 2022.

There is a possibility that Apple will remove the physical location of the SIM card starting with some iPhone 14 models, rather than some iPhone 15 models as originally rumored to be. It is also said that there will be support for two eSIM cards, ensuring dual SIM functionality. Removing the SIM card slot could further improve water resistance.

The next flagship series, the iPhone 14 line, will come with up to 2TB of storage. Apple will adopt QLC flash storage for iPhone next year and with new storage technology it will increase its capacity to 2TB.
