Known network insider, hiding behind the nickname Ice Univerce, announced that the next-generation iPhone will get a screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz images is two times higher than that of current models.

In practice, it means this: the animation on this display will be much more smooth, fast and natural.

Displays with high refresh rate manufacturers are already using Android-based smartphones, mainly attributable to the higher price category. Among them is Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo and others. It’s basically a modern flagship devices, and smartphones for games, where the animation speed is very important.

“the Screen as the smartphone is in the top 3 factors influencing choice of model at purchase. Therefore, all manufacturers, including Chinese company when the promotion began to pay special attention not only to the size of the diagonal, but also qualitative characteristics”, – said Dmitry Ryabinin, head of Hi-Tech

the Expert recalled that innovation in the screen frequency of 120 Hz is no longer on sale now, available for about 20 models of smartphones with such features, and some of them even higher frequency – 144 Hz (this is just the game model). Most Apple this frequency is also used in the screens of the new iPad.

“you Can say that high frequency of updates has become a mandatory element of all modern flagships. And this has led to a new battle during the work – emphasizes Ryabinin. – The main task of manufacturers now lies in the plane of energy consumption, because the 120 Hz mode has a negative impact on autonomy. These smartphones in the maximum mode consumes approximately 140 percent more energy compared to those that use the standard screen is 60 Hz”.

In his opinion, now the main thing for producers is not just to release a smartphone with a high frequency of updates, and optimize the software to reduce power consumption.

“Apple has the potential to release a smartphone with the most optimized 120 Hz mode, given the experience of other manufacturers and their own in the iPad. Therefore, the fact that the company comes out with a 120 Hz one of the last, can be a plus for users,” said Dmitry Ryabinin.
