As the presentation of the iPhone 12 draws closer, rumors about Apple's future line-up intensify and become clearer. This time, it's the most high-end model of the Apple that is revealed through stolen photos shared by the YouTuber EverythingApplePro. If the design of the smartphone is not really visible in these photos, we can see a series of tweaks that says a lot about the future features of the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

The 120 Hz screen is confirmed

As rumored, this huge model with its 6.7-inch screen – a record for an iPhone – would have a frame rate of 120Hz, just like the iPad Pros. A first option would enable this refresh rate, while a second called "Adaptive Refresh Rate" would let the iPhone adjust the frame rate based on what's on the screen (between 60 and 120Hz). However, we note that the menu visible in the image indicates “Please make sure your PVT model supports the high refresh rate. Activating the option on non-compatible hardware can cause unexpected behavior ", which suggests that Apple is still in the testing stage.

Still concerning the screen of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, EverythingApplePro says in a tweet that it will be a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR panel with the definition of 2,788 x 1,284 pixels and the resolution of 458 pixels. The stolen image nevertheless shows us that the size of the notch would not budge this year. If it seems slightly smaller than on an iPhone 11 Pro Max, this is partly because the screen of the iPhone 12 Pro Max would gain some 0.2 inches. Last detail: the smartphone could be recharged quickly both wired and wirelessly, but the AC adapter would be sold separately. The rumor supposing the absence of charger in the box of iPhone 12 thus seems to be confirmed.

LiDAR sensor and slow-motion video in 4K

As for the photo / video capabilities of the new iPhone, they are also revealed in screenshots from another PVT model, this time shared by leaker Jon Prosser. We learn that the iPhone 12 Pro Max would be able to record slow-mo video in 4K at 120 and 240 frames per second, but especially that the smartphone would be well equipped with a LiDAR sensor. This one, which appeared for the first time at Apple with the iPad Pro 2020, would allow here to improve the auto-focus and the detection of subjects in video and in Night mode, unlike the iPad Pro which does not takes advantage of it only to make augmented reality.
