We will just say it plainly that iPhone 12 needs to be a big change to Apple’s smartphones. The iPhone 11 had minimal upgrades. There were only a few camera changes, along with more power inside. So, the big question is that what changes is the new iPhone going to bring? Is Apple going to introduce a truly new phone this time?
We have heard many rumors and leaks regarding the latest phone. There would be new cameras, a supercharged screen, a new design, and possibly a 5G iPhone model. If all these rumors prove to be true, then we will truly have the next-generation iPhone.
Below, we have mentioned the latest updates and leaks regarding the iPhone 12.
Although we don’t have any official news about the iPhone 12 release date, we all know when it’s going to come out. Apple releases its phones metronomically, and this time will be no different. Thus, we believe that the new phone is going to release in September 2020, probably in the second week. We are going to see Apple unveil the iPhone 12, either on September 8 or September 15. You will be able to pick it up ten days after that.
Regarding the price of the new Apple’s latest phone, it’s going to be around the range of the current models. However, a report has suggested that the cost of materials of the iPhone 12 might be higher, which means a higher sale price.
We believe that the name of the 2020 iPhones is going to the iPhone 12 series. However, Apple hasn’t given any information regarding the name of its 2020 phones.
According to analysts, a major change in the upcoming phones will be the lack of notch. The front-facing camera will be embedded in the screen. We expect the most expensive model to have this feature, like the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
Another leak states that Apple is working on a new Face ID tech, which will lead to a slimmer notch. The company is also testing many combinations, like the ones that minimize front-facing optics.
A leak has also confirmed several rumors, like a telephoto lens, a time-of-flight sensor, and support for 5G as well as switching to USB-C port. Moreover, there will also be an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
One or more of the 2020 iPhones are going to have 120Hz, which will make interactions smoother. We have heard this rumor more than once. Moreover, the screen sizes of iPhones could also be different. An Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the iPhone 12 Pro could have a 5.45-inch screen, and the iPhone 12 Pro could have a 6.7-inch screen. However, the standard iPhone 12 is going to stay at 6.1 inches. Moreover, we are certain that iPhone 12 will get upgraded to OLED.
Other sources have also mentioned similar sizes. However, a source suggests that Apple will launch four new models in September. An analyst also suggests that Apple will introduce four phones, which will be a 5.4-inch phone, 6.7-inch one, and two 6.1-inch ones.
A significant upgrade to the iPhone 12 is that it’s going to have the widely rumored 5G. A 5nm A14 Bionic processor will support the 5G. In layman terms, this means more power along with longer battery life. This upgrade would be quite impressive.
According to analysts, the iPhone 12 will have a RAM of 6GB, which is more than the current 4GB. Moreover, the new phone might also get a camera upgrade, and there will be a laser-powered 3D camera. This would be present on the backside.
Last but not least, there is a rumor that Apple is going to introduce the fourth handset in its 2020 iPhones, which will be the iPhone SE 2. It could be a secret weapon from Apple to outdo its competitor phones, like Samsung Galaxy S11.
