The new release of iPhones is considered one of the biggest events in the tech: many people seek to own a brand new iPhone in this era; it’s considered the one to set the trends.
The leaks and rumors are no new in the tech world while getting information about new Apple devices is fairly rare and difficult. Apple doesn’t tend to leak this information comprehensively as a Samsung or Google phone- but here we gather everything that we here about the upcoming device.
It is considered that iPhone will appear in 5G and it is believed that the entire iPhone 12 model will have the 5G, restricted to iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max rather than being available on all the devices.
Apple iPhone 12 price and release date
- expected in October 2020
- $699 onwards
In general iPhone, event is held by Apple specifically in the second week of September and normally on a Tuesday. The same pattern is followed by the company on the release of the iPhone 11 in 2019 by announcing them on 10 September 2019, so if 2020 is a standard year, the iPhone 12 likely to revile on 8 September 2020.
Certainly, 2020 is not a normal year for sure thanks to the pandemic. It is confirmed by the company that the iPhone may be delayed by a few weeks this year, while an event by Apple took place on the 15th of September but it wasn’t for the iPhone.
Instead, the event took was to reveal the new range of iPad, iPad Air, the Series 6 Apple Watch, and the Apple Watch SE, among the several services. The iPhone event may take place in October instead. The company does not claim or confirm the news yet but rumours have it down for 13 October.
As per the rumours, the price expected for the iPhone 12 models will cost between $699 and $1449.
What will the iPhone 2020 name?
It was pretty easy to predict the next iPhone name pre-2017. Followed by the iPhone 3G up to the iPhone 8, Apple uses sequential numbers and that was it.
After the launch of iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max launched in 2019, the 2020 iPhones will likely be called iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. There have been rumors for a smaller iPhone 12 called the iPhone 12 mini though which was earlier launched by the name SE.
For 5G models it’s hard to tell whether there will be separate names for the phones. By putting all the rumours together, it seems that there will be four phones.
- All-new design
- Squarer edges?
New designs are coming up for the Apple iPhone 12 models reportedly with a new design some show squarer edges more like the iPhone 4 or 5 compared to the rounded edges that are been used since iPhone 6.
The sources of the supply chain have suggested the device will be slightly bigger due to its larger display but thinner overall than models in 2019.
Although hoping to see a reduced notch or no notch at all on the top of the screen of 2020 models. While we hope that the frosted matte glass rear from the 11 Pro models returns as it is beautiful in the flesh.
A patient filled for a notch-less phone we are waiting for but the question arises how the Face ID would accommodate.
- All OLED
- 120Hz refresh rate
- Different sizes
Display rumours for the all 2020 iPhones will have OLED Displays. For the current iPhone 11, there is an LCD display, whereas for Pro models there is OLED. The variable refresh rate report to be is 120Hz that can drop down to 60Hz when necessary. It’s claimed that OLED displays will come from the LG for the first time.
When talking about the sizes it would be a 5.4inch model, a 6.1-inch model, and a 6.7-inch in place of the 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.5-inch models that we have currently. It may be possible that there may be two versions of the 6.1-inch handset, one with the standard iPhone 12 and the other with iPhone Pro. While the 5.4-inch model to be called as iPhone Mini.
The speculation suggests in-display fingerprint sensors although this may be inaccurate as we are expecting all the new models to have Face ID.
- 3D Depth cameras
- Night Mode improvements likely
For the cameras, there is a prediction of a quad camera setup in the iPhone12 Pro max. This means a triple-lens camera similar to iPhone 11 Pro, plus a ToF sensor or Lidar sensor as given in the iPad Pro 2020. However, the general consent is for there to be the triple camera again in these new models but with a new sensor. For the portrait mode, the new sensor will help with ARKit apps
- About LIDAR and why is it in the new Apple iPad?
Improvement in the night mode is to be expected and we predict that Apple might be adding a 3D sensing lasses array for better portrait mode. While for the front camera it may have a wider field of view for the Face ID.
Hardware and software
- A14 chipset
- iOS 14
As many of the android phones companies have already upgraded to 5G connectivity that may be adopted by Apple too. So we claim that all the models of the iPhone will come with a 5G connectivity option and Qualcomm, also CEO Cristiano Amon has said that getting 5G into the iPhone is their priority. Qualcomm has announced the X60 modem and a new antenna.
The scenario at present we think that iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be in 5G.
It’s likely to be expected to see the A14 chip under the hood of the iPhone 12 models with all offering the same hardware and we expect to see them all in iOS 14.
You can read about all the new features on iOS 14 in our coming blog, but there are widgets an App Library, App Clips, and upgrade to the messages and Siri, among the plenty more.
It’s expected that all three models will feature U1 Chip- which brings enhanced short-range sharing and location.
When talking about the storage the iPhone 12 Pro models will come in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB options, whereas the model of the iPhone 12 will come in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB options.
