Latest iPhone 12 dummy units show the flat-edge look used on the iPhone 4
We expect Apple to unveil four models this year including the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four will feature an AMOLED display and it now seems that the 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate originally expected on the “Pro” units might not surface this year at all. The A14 Bionic chipset, manufactured by TSMC using the 5nm process node, powers the four handsets. The chip will contain 15 billion transistors up from the 8.5 billion employed in the currently used A13 Bionic; this will make the newer component more powerful and energy-efficient.
The 2020 iPhones will each support both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G signals. The former consists of low and mid-band 5G spectrum that travel farther than high-band spectrum and penetrate structures better. However, they do not deliver the zippy fast data speeds that consumers are expecting from the next generation of wireless connectivity. Those speeds come from mmWave spectrum.
Battery capacities of the 2020 iPhone 12 line are rumored to decline this year
We expect 6GB of memory paired with 128GB of storage and up on the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will most likely sport 4GB of memory paired with the same storage options offered on the more expensive units.
As we noted another time with another set of previously released 2020 iPhone 12 mock-ups, the design of the camera module might not be accurate on these dummy units. That’s because they are made to develop cases for the new line and as long as the cutout houses the camera module perfectly, there is no need to include the actual number and placement of each lens on the mockup.
The current rumor calls for Apple to use staggered release dates for the 2020 iPhone models with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max first to be launched. That would be followed by the release of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
