The iPhone 12 series is down the line to its launch, and there is a lot of hype and rumors going on about this most affordable latest series. Although, thanks to these rumors and leaks, as they have already revealed almost everything about the iPhone 12 series. But still, we don’t know a lot about the new iPhones, especially the Pro range.
Although Apple has not yet confirmed the launch date, but reportedly it is expected to take place in the second week of September.
Here’s what you should expect from Apple iPhone 12
As we do not know much about any of the upcoming iPhones, we have been heavily relying on leaks and rumors.
This year iPhones will feature major updates, introducing some of the first design changes that we’ve seen since the iPhone X was released in 2017. We’re expecting four iPhones in three display sizes which could come in at 5.4, 6.7, and 6.1 inches (x2).
The 6.7-inch iPhone and one 6.1-inch model will be higher-end devices with triple-lens cameras, while the 5.4 and 6.1-inch models will be lower-end iPhones with dual-lens cameras and a more affordable price tag. This year all these iPhones are expected to feature OLED display technology regardless of price, and a 120Hz “ProMotion” refresh rate could be included in some of the higher-end models, though that’s not guaranteed due to battery life constraints and Apple could wait until 2021 to add the feature.
Reportedly, among these, the iPhones 12 5.4 inches will be the smallest iPhone Apple has released since the 4.7-inch iPhone SE. At 6.7 inches, iPhone 12 Pro will be Apple’s largest iPhone to date, topping the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max. And the other two 6.1-inch models will be similar in size to the existing iPhone 11.
Rumoured TrueDepth Camera Technology
There were rumors indicating Apple will use a new TrueDepth camera system that cuts down on the size of the notch on the front, but leaks are mixed on this subject, and there could be no change in notch size. There are also rumors of a 3D triple-lens rear camera system that uses a laser to calculate depth information for objects in the room, improving both photography and AR capabilities. This is likely to be similar to the LiDAR Scanner in the 2020 iPad Pro, and it will be limited to the higher-end iPhone models.
2020 will be the first year that Apple introduces 5G support in the iPhone, allowing the new devices to connect to 5G networks that are much faster than 4G LTE networks. According to rumors, all of the iPhones in the iPhone 12 lineup will feature 5G connectivity, though it’s not yet clear if all iPhone 12 models will have super fast mmWave support in all countries as some countries have not implemented mmWave technology.
The iPhone 12 models coming in 2020 will use an Apple-designed 5-nanometer A14 chip manufactured by TSMC. The A14 chip is expected to bring both speed and efficiency improvements that could bring small gains in battery life to compensate for 5G, which uses additional battery.
No EarPods or Power Adapter
Rumors suggest Apple has no plans to include a power adapter or EarPods in the box with the iPhone 12 models, letting the company cut down on production costs and packaging. Instead, Apple may offer a 20W power adapter that can be purchased separately. The USB-C to Lightning cable could get an upgrade, though, with rumors indicating Apple plans to offer a new braided cable design.
With the launch, we will come to know more about this series and will keep you updated.
