Apple’s upcoming “iPhone 12 Pro” and “iPhone 12 Pro Max” will feature faster displays, boasting a 120Hz refresh rate says a leaker. Faster displays offer a smoother on-screen experience.
A reliable source, if there is no accident, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max have basically determined the maximum 120Hz refresh rate.

The leaker doesn’t normally comment on Apple’s plans for its devices but has a good record when it comes to Samsung rumors. Samsung supplied OLED panels for the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and the current iPhone 11 series.
Another indicator that faster iPhone display refresh rates are on their way, is that some users are seeing an accessibility setting that limits the frame rate of the device to 60 frames per second. The setting suggests future iPhone models could be capable of higher frame rates. Current models are limited to a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz.
Apple is expected to release four iPhone models this fall. Most observers expect to see Apple release a 6.7-inch iPhone and one 6.1-inch model, which will be higher-end OLED devices with triple-lens cameras. A 5.4-inch model and another 6.1-inch model will be lower-end models featuring dual-lens cameras and a lower price.
