How big of an upgrade Apple's iPhone 12 is going to be? If you've followed the spate of leaks and rumours, iPhone 12 will at least offer better camera and faster processor among other new things. A new leak has revealed a bold upgrade to the display on the iPhone 12.

Ross Young, founder and CEO of Display Supply chain Consultants, has tweeted a list of phones that are expected to come with 120Hz and above displays. Apple's upcoming iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max top the chart. This list also features phones such as Huawei Mate 40 and Galaxy Note 20 Plus/Ultra. Young in another tweet said he expected the iPhone 12 Pro models to have the support between 60Hz and 120Hz.

The race for high screen refresh rates

Smartphone companies are cranking up screen refresh rates since last year. While the early trends centred upon 90Hz screens, newer phones brought 120Hz and above screens. These phones are available across all price ranges. For instance, mid-range Poco X2 comes with a 120Hz refresh rate whereas Samsung's premium Galaxy S20 also support the high screen refresh rate.

120Hz on iPhones?

It is not the first time Apple has been rumoured to be implementing the 120Hz refresh rate on its iPhone 12 phones. Last time around, leakster Max Weinbach had pointed out that Apple's engineers weren't satisfied with the quality of the 120Hz screen.

“Just want to point out that we said that Apple won't do 120hz unless it is perfect. If they can't perfect it, they won't do it. I was told specifically engineers were unhappy with it and it sounded like color calibration was the reason,” said Weinbach in a tweet in May.

Apple may have not brought the feature to its phones yet, but the company launched a ProMotion display on the iPad Pro. The technology allows the device to scale up to 120Hz compared to 60Hz on every other smartphone.
