One of the major changes is the move to a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, replacing the previous 4K 21:9 panel. However, the new display offers increased brightness at 1,300 nits and uses an LTPO panel that can variably adjust the refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz for better battery efficiency.
