Last month, it was rumoured that the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max could have displays that support 120Hz refresh rate. But the latest reports suggest that this may no longer be the case. Sources have claimed that Apple may not support 120Hz on the new iPhones since the hardware to support it isn't available.

Reports on this have been mixed lately. Some say that the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will have displays that can support 120Hz, but will have the feature locked out by software. In this case, enterprising users may find a way to unlock the feature. However, Display Supply Chain's Ross Young claimed that the new iPhones won't feature the integrated circuitry that enables 120Hz refresh rate. In other words, even if the display could support 120Hz, it can't be enabled.

On the topic of the display, the iPhone 12 series is expected to be using OLED panels from BOE. The display for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, in particular, will support 10-bit colour so it's probably going to be great for watching videos. Besides that, the latest iPhones are expected to have 4GB to 6GB of RAM, at least 128GB of internal storage, and battery capacity from 2227mAh to 3687mAh.

With roughly one more month to go before the launch, we can hope that more leaks appear to let us know more of the iPhone 12 series. With that said, what do you think about this? Is the lack of 120Hz a deal-breaker for you? Let us know on our Facebook page and stay tuned to TechNave.com for more news.
