Ming-chi Kuo, the most respected analyst dedicated to Apple, recently made his thesis somewhat controversial and provided to the publication macrumors. According to him, none of the new iPhone 12 will have a 120 Hz refresh rate display.

The justification presented by Kuo is the concerns with the battery life of the iPhone. Still, the analyst believes that in 2021 Apple will make use of this increasingly popular and common feature in the best Android smartphones.

Also according to Kuo’s predictions, the iPhone 12 with a 5.4 inch screen will have a notch reduced and narrower to better accommodate the information presented at the top. Apple wants to ensure that the text shown at the top is very readable.

The other devices in the iPhone 12 range, two models with a 6.1-inch screen and a model with a 6.7-inch screen will have the notch traditional with the same width and size as the current generation, iPhone 11. They will be similar to current devices.

Continuing to follow Kuo’s testimony, all iPhone 12 will have support for the 5G network standard, despite the use of both versions. That is, we rely on the use of the sub-6 Ghz and mmWave standard for new mobile phones.

In 2020 the novelty will be the 5G, in 2021 the 120 Hz

Although we saw some alleged prototypes of the iPhone 12 whose screen appeared to have a rate of 120 Hz, the trump card will be reserved for 2021. Apple then hopes to take advantage of LTPO technology with better energy efficiency for the screens.

It should be noted that a higher refresh rate of the image on the screen, although more satisfying and more fluid in the animations, leads to greater energy consumption. In other words, it produces desirable results, but demands more from the battery.

These are Kuo’s latest expectations for the iPhone 12 range, adding that the September event will be dedicated mainly to the iPad Air, which will feature a new Touch ID reader and improved design.
