While this is just rumor and nothing is officially confirmed, Ross Young has been coming out with confirmed updates, so we have very little room to doubt this.

Panel suppliers are the same between the iPad Pro’s and MacBook Pro’s – LG Display and Sharp. Expecting similar technology – oxide backplanes, miniLED backlights and 120Hz refresh rates. MiniLEDs, 100% confirmed.— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) October 12, 2021
Of all the rumors about the new MacBook Pro lineup, the 120Hz refresh rate is the latest for now. And if this happens to be true, this will be the first Apple Mac with support for high refresh rate display.

The Apple iPad Pro 2021 was the first to come with a Mini LED display. Mini LED displays feature thousands of tiny LEDs to offer vastly superior contrast, higher brightness, and improved HDR performance compared to traditional LCDs. This is different from traditional LCDs that only have anywhere between dozens and a few hundred local dimming zones.
With the Apple Mac Unleash Event just few days away, we’ll soon get to know more about the specifications and display of the new MacBook Pro.
