It seems that a setting indicating that the upper model of the iPhone 12 that is expected to be released this fall is compatible with 4K/120fps and 4K/240fps video shooting has been discovered from iOS14, which is currently released in beta for developers.
Is it compatible with 4K/120fps and 4K/240fps video recording?
At least some models of the iPhone 12 series have 4K/120fps (120 frames per second), according to Philip Koroy of YouTube channel EverythingApplePro and Max Weinback, who is sharing the channel. Meaning) and 4K/240fps (same 240) video recording is supported. By the way, the current iPhone 11 Pro/Pro Max is up to 60 fps in 4K, and 240 fps can be up to 1080p.
However, according to Pine (@PineLeaks) who also analyzed iOS 14 beta, both 4K/120fps and 4K/240fps video shooting functions are for slow motion shooting, and 4K/120fps can be selected for normal video shooting. I post to Twitter that 4K/240fps is probably not available, although it is possible.
Both 4k 120 and 240 FPS will most likely be used for slow motion video.
Don’t expect 4k240 to be available for normal video.4k120 remains possible.

Rumors that iPhone 12 Pro series has ProMotion display
Higher video frame rates may also be linked to a series of recent rumors that the iPhone 12 Series Pro models will have a 120Hz refresh rate display.
In the earlier video of Everything Apple Pro, Weinbach said the iPhone12 Pro/Pro Max will have a ProMotion display with a 120Hz refresh rate.
However, according to the latest information he obtained, the ProMotion display for the iPhone 12 Pro/Pro Max (6.1 inches and 6.7 inches) has passed only 4 out of 5 tests that Apple will carry out before commercialization. Since it is not there, it is said that it is not yet decided whether it will actually be installed.
