Apple’s 2020 iPhones might need to wait until October to arrive but according to a new report it seems that it might be worth the wait. Especially if you’re in the market for an iPhone that can record 4K video at 240fps.

To put that into perspective, the iPhone 11 Pro can only manage it at 60fps.

This report comes courtesy of YouTube channel EverythingApple Pro with Max Weinbach also chipping in. According to the pair, we’re told that the new feature will only be available on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max which makes sense, but is it feasible?

The processing power required to make this happen was obviously beyond Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro and the Apple-designed A13 processor. The new iPhone 12 Pro will get Apple’s next A14 chip, but can it offer such a leap in performance that Apple can confidently offer four times the frame rate?

Possibly not – with EverythingApplePro hedging by saying that it’s likely Apple is actually recording at 120fps and then using software trickery to add the extra frames in. However if it intends to do it, we’d expect Apple to make a big deal about it during the iPhone event in October – or September depending on the rumor you believe.

Alongside the new frame rate we expect the iPhone 12 Pro to ship with the same LiDAR scanner that’s present in the iPad Pro, allowing for improved augmented reality features as well as new Portrait mode improvements. Also, the Pro series is likely to be equipped with a 120Hz ProMotion display, something that has been rumored earlier as well.
