First, the iPhone 12 Pro would have a 120Hz display. It wasn’t then. But now there seems to be potentially good news.
Ice Universe, one of the most trusted customers, fired the followers of the rumors about the iPhone, claiming that there was a potential “silver lining” for these rumors. However, this will be confirmed only at the Apple press conference.
If you are not familiar with 120Hz, this means that the device’s display refreshes its image 120 times per second. The average display, like the iPhone 11, refreshes only 60 times per second. With 120Hz web scrolling, playing 1
IU went into a little more detail in response to their first tweet, saying the reason for this long-standing back and forth is two different sources at Apple. The one on the production line is apparently giving bad news, while Ice Universe seems to have heard a conflicting rumor from another part of Apple’s operation.
Apple has two conflicting sources. Maybe the bad news you’ve heard comes from the production line. September 12, 2020
The bad news here is probably Jon Prosser’s recent statement from Front Page Tech that the 120Hz display, which was previously discussed for the two iPhone 12 Pro models, has not reached production.
Apple’s ProMotion technology, whose name is for displays with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, can now be found on the iPad Pro, but putting the same technology in a smartphone rather than a tablet is obviously more complicated than expected. At one point, it was rumored that only the largest 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max will receive ProMotion, but it is increasingly rumored that this year there will be no 120Hz iPhone.
120Hz becomes the standard for Android’s flagships
This is especially unfortunate, considering how ubiquitous the 120Hz displays of Android’s flagships are. Phones like the Samsung Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Note 20 series, OnePlus 8 Pro and others have adopted the new standard, with some phones like the Google Pixel 4 or Huawei P40 Pro sticking to a lower but still respected 90 Hz, and others like Asus ROG Phone 3 reaches 144Hz.
But what exactly does the Ice Universe tweet mean when it comes to silver lining? This could mean that Apple will soon release a 120Hz iPhone, perhaps built in a place other than where the Prosser leaks originate, and launch early next year as the “iPhone 12s.” Maybe that means there’s some other great feature that Apple has planned for the iPhone 12’s display, such as rumors of 10-bit color depth or an ultra-wide viewing angle or anti-glare coating like the Pro Display XDR.
It seems that we will have to wait for the message to find out, unless an enterprising liqueur manages to get to the bottom of things first. While Apple is holding an event on September 15, we expect this to focus on the Apple Watch 6 and iPad Air 4. There are suggestions that we will see some news related to the iPhone, but full disclosure will happen at a later date.
