Apple iPhone 12 won’t feature 120Hz display support, claims Ming-Chi Kuo


As the launch for the Apple iPhone 12 nears, more and more details about the upcoming next-generation smartphone series keep surfacing online. In the latest development, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shed light on the display of the phone.

He has claimed that the iPhone 12 won’t come with support for 120Hz refresh rate display and the reason cited for the same is battery life considerations, reports MacRumors. Kuo adds that support for 120Hz could be there in 2021 iPhone models.

All the smartphones in the iPhone 12 series will come with support for 5G connectivity, notes Kuo. This is in line with the previous related to the product. He adds that there will be two versions of each model. Initially, the sub-6GHz models will be available and later, models with support for sub-6Ghz-plus mmWave will go on sale.

Apple is hosting a launch event on 15th September, i.e. today but the company is not expected to unveil the new iPhone models. Instead, the event will introduce the new Apple Watch Series 6, new iPad, Apple TV, smaller HomePod, AirTags, and over-ear headphones.

The company has already confirmed that the iPhone 12 models launching this year will be “available a few weeks later.” There are several reports which claim that the new iPhones will go on sale from October.

Previous reports hint that pre-booking will start around mid-October and shipments of the base model beginning a week after that. But not all the models will go on sale together. As per the report, the iPhone 12 will be available for purchase in October itself, while other models in the lineup, including the iPhone 12 Pro, will go on sale in November.
