Heat, heat and a lot of rumors , rumors . The news in summer is usually loaded with leaks in the face of the strongest launches of the second half of the year and one of the following is that of Apple mobiles, so it does not hurt to gather everything we think we know about iPhone 12. iPhone 12 Pro release date and price is fixed along with iPhone 12.
Up to four models are talked about for this year, leaving the Pro in two as before and adding a Max model to the base model. Design changes, a new processor, and lots of other information that accumulates enough to bring it all together.
The return to the angles and the arrival of FullHD
All the renders, alleged leaks and information point to the return of a classic: from goodbye to perfectly hemispherical edges to return to the angles of the iPhone 5s and some previous ones. Something that we already saw in the 2018 iPad Pro and that would mean a change with respect to what has been seen in the brand since the iPhone 6.
Although it is the front that could receive a long-awaited change: the reduction of the notch . The well-known notch, which remains stoic despite the trends that have settled in Android phones to hide the front camera , would be smaller but it would not leave out the Face ID , which would also recognize faces at greater angles.
For the screens, it was said that Apple would add a ProMotion panel like the one we see in some iPads and that automatically changes the refresh rate between 60 and 120 Hz. In this way, Apple would enter to compete with its smartphones in a field in which For some time now, we have seen many Android manufacturers enter, seeing refresh rates of 90 and 120 Hz even in the mid-range, although in a similar way to what we have seen in the Galaxy Note 20 and the adaptive frequency.
At the level of diagonals, we see that there are four models, with screens from 5.4 inches for the smallest to 6.7 inches for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. And to highlight: the jump to FullHD for everyone (and also the OLED).
- iPhone 12: 5.4-inch screen, resolution 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, 475 dpi, 60Hz.
- iPhone 12 Max: 6.4 screen, 2,532 x 1,170 pixel resolution, 460 dpi, 60Hz.
- iPhone 12 Pro: 6.1-inch screen, resolution 2,532 x 1,170 pixels, 460 dpi, 120Hz.
- iPhone 12 Pro Max: 6.7-inch screen, resolution 2,778 x 1,284 pixels, 458 dpi, 120 Hz.
And the colors? Last year the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max released a dark green tone and the iPhone 11 followed in the wake of the iPhone XR with somewhat more daring colors, and what is expected for these iPhone 12 is that there is a model in navy blue. Also that the back is kept with the glass that we have seen in the 2019 iPhone, matte and more resistant to fingerprints.
More power and 5G
iPhone 12 Pro release date and price is fixed along with iPhone 12. Historically, the new iPhone models have released a processor and for these the replacement of the Apple A13 Bionic is expected , also included in the iPhone SE (2020) , the Apple A14 Bionic . From this processor, it is said that Apple would make the jump to 5 nanometers and that it would even have a 5G modem from Qualcomm.
A chip built by TSMC that apparently would be able to improve the raw power of the Apple A13 CPU by 40% and a 50% increase in power in the graphics processing. They are quite striking figures that for now are in rumor status, we will see if they finally end up appearing in the slides of this year’s presentation.
The iPhone 12 (most likely the Pro) will apparently hit 6GB of RAM . And as for the battery , a 4,400 mAh was pointed out for the Max, although Forbes gave the following numbers:
- IPhone 12 (A2471): 2,227 mAh.
- iPhone 12 Max (A2431): 2,775 mAh.
- iPhone 12 Pro (A2431): 2,775 mAh.
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (A2466): 3,687 mAh.
Camera- wise, the improvements are rumored to focus on low-light photography with noise reduction, better image stabilization, and faster autofocus. There is even talk that the new iPhone will incorporate the LiDAR that the 2020 iPad Pro incorporated to improve the focus and precision of the distance of the objects and that the optical zoom will be 3x.
In October and with a smaller box
There are two rumors that could mean another change for users than for the mobile: the non-inclusion of the headphones and the charger .
What is pointed out is that the new iPhones would arrive in October , after the confirmation of the brand that they would be delayed with respect to the usual launch in September. The well-known leaker Jon Prosser points to an event on October 12 and the start of reservations the same week, so that shipments happen in October for the iPhone 12 and in November for the Pro.
