iPhone 15 Series to Feature Power-Efficient OLED Displays, Could Contribute to Improve Battery Life
Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone 15 series later this year with a boatload of front-facing features and changes. The standard models are rumored to adopt the iPhone 14 Pro's Dynamic Island and the iPhone 15 Pro models are reported to come with solid-state buttons. While there is a lot to look forward to this year, the iPhone 15 series will also rock a more power-efficient OLED display that could contribute to improving overall battery life.
iPhone 15 lineup to feature an OLED display driver chip based on a 28nm process, allowing it to consume less power and improve battery life
According to a report published by Taiwan's Economic Daily News, the iPhone 15 series will feature an OLED panel with a more power-efficient display driver chip fabricated on a 28nm process. Currently, the display driver chip on the iPhone 14 models is based on a 40nm process. What this means is that the driver chip will consume less power which will overall reflect in the iPhone 15's battery life.
Apart from this, the iPhone 15 series is slated to feature no upgrades in terms of display quality. However, it is too early to draw final conclusions as the final word rests with Apple. Additionally, Apple could potentially opt to upgrade the standard iPhone 15 models with a higher refresh rate display. As mentioned earlier, be sure to take the news with a grain of salt.
As for what we are expecting, Dynamic Island will expand to the standard iPhone 15 lineup. This will streamline the devices again in terms of design. However, take note that the Cupertino-giant will offer exclusive features for the iPhone 15 Pro models to keep a distance from the standard models. For instance, we are expecting solid-state buttons on the iPhone 15 Pro models and a titanium finish.
Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro models will feature the upgraded A17 Bionic chip based on TSMC's 3nm process. This will improve the device's CPU and GPU performance by a significant margin. Furthermore, the chip will be more power efficient. With the new 28nm display driver chip and A17 Bionic, the iPhone 15 Pro models will feature improved battery life compared to current models.
We will share more details on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro's display specifications as soon as further information is available. Do you think Apple will minimize the gap between the standard and the 'Pro' models? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.Continue Reading
