Samsung Display introduced the M12 material set for OLED displays last year – it was used in the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold 4 phones first, later it was featured on the LTPO displays of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Korean publication The Elec now reports that the company is cooking up M13 and M14 material sets.

M13 might be used in the mythical Google Pixel Fold – well, we say “mythical” jokingly, the phone has been delayed so many times it’s hard to believe it’s real anymore. But it has been spotted in the wild, it is very much real (and possibly coming in June).

And it might have a better display panel than Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5, since those are expected to stick to the same M12 material set as their predecessors (a material set is refers to the makeup of the OLED panels). The Google foldable having better panels is unusual as the company rarely picks the latest tech. Also, a few months ago there was talk of a downgrade from the original plans for the display.

According to The Elec, Apple will order M12-based displays for all four iPhone 15 models. Last year the panels were split between M12 for the Pros and M11 for the vanilla models. That doesn’t mean that the base iPhone and the plus model are getting ProMotion, however, analysts believe this won’t happen until 2025.

Samsung Display is reportedly developing a custom formulation dubbed M14, which will be used exclusively by Apple for the iPhone 16 generation next year.

As for this year, Samsung Display will build panels for all four iPhone 15 models, LG Display will help out with panels for the two Pro models. BOE was excluded from the initial order due to issues.
