Do you think there are any chances for a 90Hz or even faster display in 2019 iPhones?

they definitely have the tech to be able to do it, it's just a matter of if they want to give it to us now... or later. They'll drag their feet for as long as they can.

The higher refresh rate is great for smoothness in the UI........but that's about it without Apple Pencil support. In gaming, the 90-120 Hz is not helpful since most games barely gets to 60 FPS (for iPhone XS).

Yes, the smoothness of 120Hz UI on the iPad Pro is incredible. I would pay 2.000$ for an iPhone with a Pro Motion display.

The whole UI feels so incredible fast. When I go back to my iPhone, I feel ported back sone years.

How could you classify something (The iPhone) as a ‘flop’ if it hasn’t been released yet?

Lol, getting hit with Relentless technicalities again.

Not a sales flop per se (as we all know people will buy every year). Though I should’ve phrased it as “my renewed interest”, as right now, this year’s rumoured iPhones are a flop, spec/design wise, for my use case anyway.

Well, it is a tech site, is it not? Your post wasn’t clear, which is why I was asking to be technical. :D

Now that you explained your post, it makes more sense, but labeling an iPhone a ‘flop’ before it releases just screams ignorance. Not saying that’s what you were doing, but thanks for the explanation the ‘iPhone 11’ may not meet your particular standards, but I try to remain balanced before I can actually see the product before making any insinuations.

the new android phone that has 90hz refresh (OnePlus?) has a setting to turn it off too. So higher refresh rates probably burn through the battery faster

When a Pro Motion display consumes significant more power than no new iPhone for me. I will stay at the iPhone XR and take the longer battery life.

I have one, it's only a difference of about 30-50 minutes usage keeping it set at 90hz

I think its a certainty, although it will likely be used as a differentiator, so will be on XS2* but not on cheaper XR2*

* whatever the new models are called!

Edit: for those talking power consumption, remember that (allegedly) bigger batteries are coming this year too.

This.
People just love new items on the spec list without even thinking the pros and cons in real life.
