The iPhone 12 series will be announced in practically two days, which hopefully means mass production of at least the base models has now begun. If the phones need to be available within a few weeks of the announcement, the production lines should already have the units up and running. Of course, this also means that hardware functions should already be blocked and repaired, and unfortunately that also means that a function that is still being discussed no longer comes after a source of leakage.
Of the many debates surrounding the iPhone 12’s many new features, the 120Hz refresh rate is possibly one of the most discussed. This display technology, called “ProMotion”, has long been on iPhones since its debut on the iPad Pro. Many believed this year would be the year for iPhones, including Front Page Tech̵
On the other hand, he also clarified that the 120Hz refresh rate evidence came from a PVT or production validation test device, which was pretty close to the final iPhone 12 Pro Max. He also mentioned that, oddly enough, Apple also had other PVTs that didn’t have this feature, suggesting that the company could decide at the last minute which one to choose.
Now it turns out that the non-120 Hz side won. In a recent tweet, the YouTuber claimed the iPhone 12 had gone into mass production and the 120Hz feature didn’t make it. Of course, until Apple makes the announcement itself, there is still a small glimmer of hope that may not be the case.
There is still some debate as to why Apple would leave such a feature off the iPhone 12 Pro. On the iPad Pro, the faster refresh rate helped reduce not only the display lag, but also the Apple Pencil latency. The latter is pointless for an iPhone. It’s also about iPad pros and iPhones using different display technologies, and as usual with Apple, the company won’t be satisfied if it can’t perfect an implementation before launch.
