Latest Apple iPhone 12 leaks
The latest leaks pertaining to the 5G 2020 Apple iPhone 12 family have been disseminated by XDA's Max Weinbach and EverythingApplePro and the most important news is that 120Hz ProMotion will be included with the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. ProMotion is the name that Apple has given to the 120Hz refresh rate that it has offered on the iPad Pro since 2017. At 120Hz, the display is refreshed 120 times per second. Apple reportedly was aiming for 120Hz or 60Hz and 90Hz was not considered an option.
Apple will offer a dynamic 120Hz ProMotion display on the iPhone 12 Pro models
With the ProMotion system, the display on the "Pro" models will switch between 60Hz and 120Hz depending on the content. This is done to save battery life although Apple is planning on increasing battery capacity some more for this year's models. From personal experience, yours truly can tell you that the battery life on the iPhone 11 Pro Max is incredible. Usually, there is anywhere from 30% to 50% battery life remaining when we shut down at 3 am after a full day of moderately heavy to heavy usage. The combination of 5G and ProMotion is going to require more battery power and Apple is expected to pack the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 4400mAh battery providing a 10.9% hike from the 3969mAh battery inside the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The logic board on the iPhone 12 Pro models will be split into two parts according to tipster Jon Prosser. A ribbon cable will connect the two parts and it is believed that this is being done to help accommodate the larger battery used in each "Pro" unit.
