We're in the last stretch in the run-up to the iPhone 12 launch, and even though Apple has an event scheduled for this week, we don't expect to hear any news on its new flagship, which is set to have its own event at the end of September or beginning of October.
iPhone 12 rumors have been coming thick and fast over the past few months, and for a while it looked like Apple might be planning on catching up with Android with some of its new smartphones features – like shrinking the notch, and upping the display's refresh rate to 120Hz – but sadly, we're in for a rude awakening.

120hz (codename: d6x) didn’t make mass production 😞 *now* you can give upSeptember 11, 2020
Twitter leaker Jon Prosser has been keeping the hope alive for at least one iPhone 12 120Hz model but it looks like that rumor has finally been put to bed. Taking to Twitter just before the weekend, Prosser said that 120Hz panels haven't made it to mass production, which apparently started last week (opens in new tab).
Fellow leaker Ross Young, who cast doubt on Apple's ability to pull the 120Hz display together in time for launch chimed in to confirm that his suspicions were correct.
Looks like this was the right call back in August. https://t.co/qckduPXTWeSeptember 11, 2020

Even a budget smartphone like the OnePlus Nord offers a 90Hz display, and with the sizeable notch still a fixture of the display, the iPhone 12 is going to find itself lagging behind on features that Android phones are taking to the next level.
