The launch of Apple’s iPhone 12 is expected in September 2020 flaunting a new design scheme and upgraded internals. As per reports, the iPhone 12 design is going to be the key distinguishing feature for the smartphone giant’s this year’s launch.
Even before the release of iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro in September 2019 reports had already started to emerge about what the company could be planning for 2020.
Apple’s next-generation iPhones are expected to have major changes, such as different size, a revamped design, and a new three-dimensional camera with Lidar sensor which is used for 3D mapping environments for AR applications.
According to tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo there can be four size variants of iPhone 12; one at 5.4 inches, two at 6.1 inches and the largest variant measuring 6.7 inches.
iPhone 12 Design: Notch-Less Phone
Last year Apple’s iPhone 11 turned out to be a disappointment. The smartphone giant kept the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro designs much similar to its 2018 model. The only change was the rear cameras module in the form of square rounded from edges to make the space for three-lenses on the back.
The big changes are expected in the upcoming iPhone 12 design. Following the leaks Apple will give its up-coming iPhone 12 series the biggest design change since the arrival of the 2017 iPhone X.
When iPhone X was first debuted in 2017 users had undoubtedly noticed the notch at the top of the iPhone X. According to recent design leaks of iPhone 12, it seems that the notch has cut down or either reduced in size which has become less noticeable.
Rumors suggest that the iPhone 12 lacks fingerprint sensor which means Apple however needs notch for its Face ID for biometric security.
Apple is finally making a bezel-less iPhone. Usually, a design without bezel means 19.5:9 aspect ratios. It is longer and thinner than the 16:9 ratio in the iPhone SE models which is the latest addition to the iPhone family.
iPhone 12: Apple’s First 5G phones
According to tech news all four iPhone 12 models will ship with 5G networking support, but the capability may vary from model to model. However, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 may not support mmWave technology, and would support only sub-6GHz 5G.
iPhone 12 Cameras
Well, the iPhone 12 design is not going to be everything about Apple’s flagship. Despite seeing a three rear camera arrangement users still have a lot to expect about the camera quality.
Rumors suggest that some of the new iPhone models coming in 2020 will feature 3D camera on the back of the iPhone 12, which sounds like a LiDAR time-of-flight sensor that Apple added in the iPad Pro models 2020.
The LiDAR Scanner in the iPad Pro uses reflected light to measure the distance from the sensor to up to five meters away, which is equivalent to 16.4 feet.
Even with daily iPhone 12 leaks, there’s still too much to know about Apple’s first 5G iPhones.
