- After a longer-than-usual wait caused by production delays, Apple’s new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro devices are expected to be unveiled on Tuesday.
- Although nothing about the iPhone 12 has become official at this time, a series of leaks that go back more than a year reveals almost everything there is to know about Apple’s next generation iPhones.
- In front of Apple’s official announcement, a new video on YouTube gives our best look yet at the amazing new iPhone 12 Pro design that will be shown next month.
It goes without saying that 2020 has been anything but normal in virtually all circumstances, and we have the new coronavirus pandemic largely to thank. Every aspect of our lives was lifted earlier this year when COVID-1
Despite the fact that Apple’s new iPhone release is delayed, iPhone 12 rumors went straight in time. In fact, the details of the next-generation iPhone series began to leak last year when well-connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities revealed early details about Apple’s first 5G iPhone models. Leaks and rumors have continued to flow regularly since then, although there have been some unexpected twists along the way. However, now that Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro designs are set in stone, we can still enjoy our best look at the fantastic new iPhone series before launching in October.
Ming-Chi Kuo is the most productive Apple leaker in the world, and he is also the most accurate inside when it comes to details regarding Apple’s unannounced plans. It was no surprise that he was the first person to highlight the upcoming new iPhone 12 series, and he did so only in 2019 around the time the iPhone 11 series was released.
At the time, Kuo said Apple would release four redesigned iPhone 12 models this year, all with 5G connectivity, OLED displays ranging in size from 5.4 inches to 6.7 inches diagonally, and a new design with flat metal edges that resemble the sides of Apple’s old iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 models. He also said that the advanced iPhone 12 Pro models would have an updated triple rear camera with an additional 3D depth sensor. All these details are still believed to be accurate.
Since then, several other leaks have crept in with various info covering everything from prices and a new dark blue colorway to a new braided zipper cable and Apple’s supposed decision to exclude a power adapter from the box. Visualizations of Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro designs have also been shared time and time again, but recent leaks suggest that the iPhone 12 Pro design we’ve seen time and time again was faulty in a few different ways.
The biggest flaw in the sleek design we’ve seen in several months was apparently on the rear camera. Instead of a layout similar to the iPad Pro camera that has a LiDAR sensor that is almost the same size as the camera lenses, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will apparently have a smaller LiDAR sensor that is squeezed into the lower right corner of a triple camera with the same layout as the iPhone 11 Pro.
Are you wondering what the iPhone 12 Pro will look like now that we’m pretty sure the camera was wrong in previous concept renderings? A new iPhone 12 Pro design video was recently created by iOS Beta News and posted on YouTube on the ConceptsiPhone channel, and you can check it out below. You will also see the sleek new dark blue color that is rumored to replace Midnight Green on Apple’s iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
