Leaker claims iPhone 12 Pro models can shoot 4K video at up to 240 frames per second

Out of the four upcoming new iPhone 12 smartphones, the two high-end Pro models are apparently capable of recording video in 4K resolution at 120 or 240 frames per second (FPS).

That’s according to serial smartphone leaker Max Weinbach who made the claim over at his YouTube channel EverythingApplePro. Only the high-end iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models are apparently able to support these new video-recording modes, based on strings that Weinbach unearthed from the Camera app in the iOS 14 beta developer code.

Here’s Weinbach’s video embedded right ahead.

In terms of shooting video, the current iPhone 11 family maxes out at 4K resolution at either thirty or sixty frames per second. The 240FPS option is currently available when shooting slo-mo video in the lower 1080p resolution. The front facing camera on the iPhone 11 models can also shoot 4K video at 60FPS, resulting or “slofies” as Apple likes to call these recordings.

Assuming Weinbach is right, high-end models of the next iPhone will let you shot slo-mo video at the same 120FPS or 240FPS as on the current models, but do so in 4K resolution rather than be limited to slo-mo recording at 1080p. In other words, the next iPhone should be capable of shooting really crisp slo-mo video at four times the pixels (4K vs. 1080p) than currently.



Weibach’s video goes on to mention other exclusive findings related to the next Apple Watch (Series 7 is said to come in Navi Blue (just like the next iPhone), AirPods 3 and more.
