Since most Android flagship smartphones for 2020 will come with a 120Hz or 144Hz display, most eyes will look to Apple when it unveils its upcoming iPhone 12 series, only to see if the newer models will arrive with displays with a high refresh rate or not. Unfortunately, potential customers will be furious after hearing from a tipster that not only the iPhone 12 family, but even the 2021 iPhone range won’t come with 120Hz refresh rates. That’s a big disappointment, since even mid-range Android handsets have 90Hz panels.
2022 ‘iPhone 13 Pro’ is said to get 120 Hz refresh rate
A tweet from Apple Lab in the form of an answer to iHacktu Pro talks about the fact that the 120Hz refresh rate display is ‘dead’ for all iPhone 12 models, as well as the iPhone 12S setup for 2021. Apparently thinks Apple Lab that the new series will launch in 2021 will be called the iPhone 12S instead of the iPhone 13, but notes in this tweet that the 2022 iPhone 13 Pro will get support for high refresh rate displays.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t mentioned why Apple isn’t rumored to stick to screens with a high refresh rate for the iPhone 12. Please note that Apple prefers high-quality hardware for its product range, which is why models like the iPhone 11 Pro Max get a One + award from experts in screen calibration such as DisplayMate. Since BOE is unable to supply displays for the iPhone 12 series due to quality issues, it seems that a majority of those shipments are provided by Samsung.
120Hz is dead in all 12 lines and also in 12S. 120Hz will only come in 2022 with iPhone 13 Pro

If what Apple Lab says is true then it seems that even Samsung’s 120 Hz OLED screens have not passed the quality test phase, although we are confident that Apple will work closely with its supply chain to ensure that such displays be optimized in every possible way before the official disclosure. If it doesn’t then it seems like we have to wait a few years for the 2022 iPhone 13 Pro to experience that smooth display.
Do you think Apple won’t be using 120Hz refresh rate screens for its iPhone 12 family arriving in September? Tell us in the comments.
