Numerous rumors about the iPhone 12 series have surfaced all over the Internet, although we’re many months away from the expected release window. Now, a new leak may have rendered some critical details related to the display.
As per XDA’s Max Weinbach and EverythingApplePro, the upcoming iPhone 12 series will come with a 120Hz refresh rate. The source mentions that this high refresh rate option will only be available in the Pro models – supposedly the iPhone 12 Pro and the Pro Max. The regular model will have the same old 60Hz refresh rate, as per the YouTube channel.
What Else to Expect From the iPhone 12
The 120Hz refresh rate featured first debuted on the 2017 Razer Phone, with other Android smartphones like the Asus ROG Phone 2 following in 2019. This year, devices from Samsung, OnePlus, and Xiaomi all provide users with the option.
According to EverythingApplePro, Apple engineers did not want a 90Hz refresh rate like the Google Pixel 4, or the OnePlus 7T has but insisted on either 120Hz or 60Hz. It is, therefore, believed that iPhones sporting the higher option would be capable of switching between refresh rates in accordance with the content being displayed. This is what other Android devices do – videos are played at 60Hz, and system menus and supported games function at 120Hz.
Besides the high refresh rate and the probable 5G support, Apple is also expected to increase the battery size of the iPhone 12 series. We’ve finally heard that the company is supposedly including a battery bigger than 4,400mAh in the upcoming range.
Other iPhone 12 series leaks worth mentioning and confirmed by the YouTuber and Weinbach include smaller Face ID sensors, a wider angle of authentication, improved autofocus with the Lidar sensor, enhanced low-light performance, better slow-motion quality in the dark, long exposure improvements, ‘next-generation’ Smart HDR, and finally, 3x telephoto zoom.
