The Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ will go from 6.8 to 6.87 inches with a resolution of 3096 x 1444 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.3: 9
The probable Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ It will have an LTPO (acronym for polycrystalline oxide at low temperature) screen that will stand out because it will take advantage of high refresh rates (in that case, 120 Hz) without energy consumption going off, according to a version released by a consultant.
The latest rumors about Apple suggest that the American company will add 120 Hz support to the screen of the new iPhone 12 Pro, but could disable it at the factory if it decided to prioritize the battery. One solution would be to use more efficient panels with LTPO technology.
However, a new leak reveals that Samsung will not start manufacturing these types of panels for the iPhone until 2021. The Korean conglomerate will give priority to its Galaxy Note.
According to Ross Young of the Display Supply Chain Consultants, Samsung is converting some of its production lines from LTPS to LTPO, but the new display technology will arrive first at its own terminals. The production lines that Samsung Display dedicates to Apple will not be converted until 2021.
According to Ross, the Galaxy Note 20+, which will be one of the most expensive cell phones on the global market, will go from 6.8 to 6.87 inches with a resolution of 3096 x 1444 pixels and 19.3: 9 aspect ratio. The display will have a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz with LTPO, which means it will be the most efficient 120Hz display on a smartphone.
According to Ross, the Galaxy Note 20 will go from 6.3 to 6.42 inches with a resolution of 2345 x 1084 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. The screen will be LTPS and will operate at 60 Hz. There will be no Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Samsung will guide the new flexible model Galaxy Fold 2 as the device for the most demanding.
Apple Watch uses LTPO technology on its displays.
The antecedent of the Apple watch
The Apple Watch Series 4 It was the first device with LTPO technology. Samsung later implemented it on their Galaxy Watch Active 2. This panel technology affects the TFT transistor film that turns pixels on and off. Apple described it as “a completely new pixel architecture that allows the refresh rate to be reduced to 1 Hz when the clock is idle.”
LTPO is up to 15% more efficient than LTPS and allows a “always on” mode of lower consumption. In a smarpthone, you could reduce the battery drain of the new 120 Hz panels by using frequency variations to reduce consumption without the user noticing.
In addition to being one of the most powerful cell phones on the market, the Galaxy Note 20 will be the first terminal to use a 120 Hz LTPO panel. Perhaps it will allow activating this refresh rate at QHD + resolutions, something that is not possible on the Galaxy S20. Regarding the first iPhone LTPOWe will have to wait another year.
The digital newspaper iFixit has already explained how, when presenting its Watch Series 4, Apple indicated that thanks to this technology it was possible to reduce that refresh rate dynamically when it is not being actively used, allowing it to further optimize its energy consumption.
Apple indicated that it could reduce that refresh rate from 60 Hz to as low as 1 Hz when the Apple Watch was not active, for example, and with the Pro Motion display iPad Pro (although not LTPO) does something similar when “playing” with refresh rates ranging from 24 to 120 Hz.
