The new iPhone 12 will use a 120 Hertz display this year, it was said so far. Now there are initial doubts about this rumor.
The OnePlus 8 Pro, Galaxy S20, and, most recently, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra have one thing in common: the 120 Hertz display. This means that the device can be operated much more smoothly than with conventional 60-Hertz panels. That is why 120 Hertz is the new standard for flagships, which is why the iPhone 12 is based on such a screen. After all, the iPad Pro (2020) is already supplied with 120 Hertz. So integration into the iPhone series is not such a big leap. But Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants, has now expressed initial doubts about this development.
Analysts contradict each other for iPhone 12 display
According to a tweet by the chief analyst, Apple does not use 120 Hertz compatible display drivers. In doing so, he relies on his own sources. Young contradicts the statements of Ming-Chi Kuo, a renowned Apple analyst. In addition, the iPhone 12 would lag behind comparable Android models in terms of display technology. However, this would not be entire without precedent, as Apple started to equip its smartphones with OLED panels quite late. Usually, the manufacturer from Cupertino waits a few years until the corresponding technology is mature enough to be able to offer the user the best possible end experience.
So there are still uncertainties surrounding the release of the next iPhone. At the moment it is assumed that Apple will introduce four different versions of the iPhone 12. But not bring them onto the market at the same time. Instead, the sales start is to be staggered and initially, only two of the smaller models are available. After that, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will probably follow. What is certain is that Apple will install a 5G modem in its flagship for the first time this year.
