We've already seen 120Hz ultra-smooth screens in game-focused phones like the Razer Phone and Razer Phone 2, but now a tweet from a reliable reliable Ice Universe claims that Apple's iPhones 2020 could be doubling your screen refresh rates from the current iPhone XS with 60Hz capacity.
According to the Ice Universe tweet, the Cupertino company is "considering a switchable 60Hz / 120Hz refresh rate display on the iPhone in 2020." He also claims that Apple "is discussing with Samsung and LG," which is known to be the two largest providers of AMOLED displays for smartphones in the world.

By "switchable 60Hz / 120Hz", it is presumed that next year's iPhones will change to a refresh rate of 60Hz each time static images are displayed to conserve the battery.
If it's true, it will not be the first time that Apple has launched mobile devices to the market with 120Hz screens: all of its 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch iPads launched since 2017 have ultra-fast update rates, although without the benefits of OLED technology, such as individually illuminated pixels, perfect blacks and low power consumption. Instead, the tablets sported LED Retina ProMotion displays.
Of course, Apple is preparing for the launch of iPhone 11 phones this year in September, so it will probably be a long time before we hear specific details about next year's model.
