By tomorrow October 13th, Apple will debut the iPhone 12 series in a virtual event where we’ll get to see what the device looks for real in reality.
There have been a lot of buzzes going on about the iPhone 12 lately all which boils down to the kind of features and specifications to expect from the flagship device when it finally gets released and one of the most important features I’ll personally love to see is the inclusion of 120Hz refresh rate on the device aside the 5G network capability.
While there was a video once leaked some times ago by Jon Prosser about the iPhone 12 Pro Max sporting this high-refresh rate display, there is nothing much known about the credibility of this report which is why we’ll jut hope for such feature to be present on a supposed US$1,000 smartphone.
The fact that all the iPhone 12 series will feature an OLED screen is already a good news which will set the device apart from the previous model whose base models (iPhone XR, iPhone 11) have IPS display while the OLED screen was reserved for the high-end variant.
Concerning the rumors about the release of the device, the screen specifications includes a base model called the iPhone 12 mini which will sport a 5.4-inch display and then an iPhone 12 and 12 Pro both having the same 6.1-inch display while there will be a much larger iPhone 12 Pro Max with 6.7-inch screen.
And what is quite obvious is that if Apple decided to not include the 120Hz refresh rate on all the iPhone 12 series, the Pro models (iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max) will ultimately have the high refresh rate while the base models (iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12) will have 60Hz refresh rate but that might still not be an interesting thing considering the fact that even mid-range Android devices now sport high refresh rate and the iPhone 12 Mini could start with an entry price point of about US$600
There is also the rumored ProMotion display which is a proprietary branding from Apple from the iPad Pro which could feature on the iPhone 12 Pro and it could basically be the replacement for the 120Hz refresh rate. This technology dynamically adjusts the display to how content moves for more responsive, fluid scrolling.
What we know about the iPhone 12 series release is still limited until we see the device debuting on Tuesday then we can wrap our head more on what the device is all about. Also you can stream the show via the Apple website and in case you want to transform your old iPhone to look like the forth-coming iPhone 12, here is how to do that and if you want to migrate to the new iOS 14, here is a tutorial about that.
