Apple iPhone 12 Rumors: Release Date, Features, Specs, Price, Leaks, 5G
Exciting news for Apple users! The new Apple iPhone is set to be released either late 2020 or early 2021!
Now a couple of disclaimers:
Apple has remained tight-lipped about the details of the new phone ahead of its launch on September 15, so there have not been any official confirmation of any rumors that are circulating online. However, there are several reliable sources who have given reports that agree on a few key details that we will be looking at.
Secondly, Apple hasn’t confirmed the name of the new iPhone, so we will be referring to the new model as the iPhone 12 since it is the twelfth phone to be released by Apple.
New Display Sizes
A very prominent theory circulating online is that Apple is planning to release four sizes of the iPhone 12. Two of the four sizes are expected to be “higher-end” models and the other two are expected to be “lower-end” models as far as cameras are concerned.
5.4 x 2 in. Model
This is the first of the high-end models that Apple is set to unveil this September. If the reports on the size are correct, this will be the smallest model that Apple has released to date. This model is also expected to have a dual-lens camera.
6.1 x 2 in. Model
This model is rumored to have a high-end and a low-end version of it. Because of this, these two phone models will have different features.
The high-end version is expected to have a dual-lens camera. The lower-end version is expected to have a triple-lens camera.
6.7 x 2 in. Model
If the rumors about the size of this model are true, this will be the largest phone that Apple has released to date. It is also likely to feature a triple-lens camera.
There are a plethora of “leaked” photos and reports on the features that the iPhone 12 will have. Here is a few of the rumored features that everyday consumers may be interested in.
Return of the iPhone 4 Frame
This is a rumor that comes from multiple sources and photos leaked by a third-party company that Apple uses to manufacture their phones. Allegedly the iPhone 12 is supposed to feature a metal frame characteristic of the iPhone 4.
Camera Improvements and 5G
It is possible that the iPhone 12 will utilize a 3D triple-lens camera system. This would allow the phone to calculate the depth of objects in the room with would also improve some of the phone’s other capabilities like photography and artificial reality.
Unfortunately, this feature is only rumored to be available in the 6.7 in. model. All of the models are, however, expected to have 5G support. This would be the first phone by Apple with 5G capabilities.The iPhone 12 is also expected to have some modifications to improve battery life.
