Phone 12 is the next series of Apple-branded smartphones released in 2020, probably with a dedicated event to be held, a bit like every year, in September. For the first time, Apple could present up to four phones together, differentiating them in iPhone 12 “normal” and iPhone 12 “Pro,” equipped with new features.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an expert analyst of Apple products, the 2020 iPhones will be revolutionary: by this, we mean that there will be many improvements in all fields, but in particular about design, support for 5G, and the photographic sector.

iPhone 12 design
Although there are four models, all different from each other, especially in the diagonal and in some technical characteristics, all models’ form factor could benefit from a significant retouching compared to the current range. The initial rumors have always aimed at a total renewal, which would lead the next iPhone to have a different shape from the current one, with a more squared chassis, similar to the iPhone 4 and, probably, to the iPad Pro.
This path, along with other reports precedents according to which Face ID and Touch ID will be included in the iPhone 2021 screen, would suggest an iPhone 2020 with always present front notch, even if more reduced. This would allow you to increase the screen size without affecting the physical size of the phone.
The new design using steel on the edges would force Apple to produce a series of grooves to reduce the impact of metal shielding on radio transmissions. This is why the use of fiberglass or sapphire glass is assumed to protect the tracks.
iPhone 12 processor
All the different iPhone 12 models should share the same processor. As it should be, the next lineup will be equipped with a new chip, which will likely be called A14. Historically, Apple has introduced a new chip for each new generation of iPhone, and it is virtually sure that the A14 chip will replace the current A13. It will be a process-based processor that has reduced circuitry to 5 nanometers from the current seven that. A recent report provided by TSMC who builds the Apple chips, makes it known that the new processor could increase + 15% compared to an A13. Alternatively, it could also reduce consumption by 30%,
While the current iPhone 11 models use 4GB of RAM, the same amount also found for the iPhone 11 Pro models; the next smartphone from Apple could mark an increase in this sense, but only on the Pro models.
Specifically, the iPhone 11 Pro Max iPhone 12 Pro’s successor should also enjoy 6 GB of RAM. Who knows if Apple will decide to use this amount, only in versions with more ROM memory. On the other hand, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max should have 4 GB of RAM.
5.4 inch iPhone 12 screen
It will take advantage of Samsung Display’s flexible OLED panels with integrated Y-OCTA technology; this consists in the integration of sensors (“digitizer”) that make it possible to recognize the touch directly from the OLED panel during production, allowing to eliminate a layer and the need to rely on other suppliers for this function. The 5.4 ′′ iPhone 12 will boast a 2340 x 1080 pixel resolution display at 475 PPI.
iPhone 12 cameras
With the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, Apple has taken a significant step forward in the field of multimedia. iPhone 12 will likely continue on this line. For this purpose, Apple would have started working with lens suppliers (in particular, Larger) to produce very sophisticated components. One of them (Genius Electronic Optical) seems to have difficulty maintaining the required quality, but no delays are in sight due to this hitch.
Unlike the iPhone 11, however, which offers two or three 12-megapixel sensors, iPhone 12 could feature 64-megapixel sensors for all primary cameras.
A debate has arisen around the LiDAR sensor, which should be integrated into the new models. The technology, already seen in iPad, would give the iPhone advanced depth-sensing functions, useful for some professional jobs as well as photography apps,
At the moment, there would be confirmation of the hypothesis of the use of LiDAR in iPhone 12, not only from a screen of the operating system published on Twitter but also from photos of Chinese origin that show the back of an alleged new model where it is noticeable the hole for the sensor. In reality, however, only one of the two iPhones offered has this notch; the second does not have it. This raises the suspicion that Apple may only introduce LiDAR in the top model, the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro may not have it.
iPhone 5G support
Among the other iPhone 12, we are already betting on the license for all four terminals of 5G technology. On this, Apple seems to be lagging behind many other competitors, who have started a generation early to bet on the use of this technology. According to the sources, in any case, there should be two 5G communication technologies supported: mmWave, faster and usable, especially for coverage of urban areas, and sub-6GHz, which should be useful for a range of less densely populated areas.
iPhone 12 is expected to support the new WiGig standard for wifi networking. It is currently in its fifth preliminary version, but completion is expected by the end of 2020 and may already be supported by the new iPhone 12 arriving in September.
Apple should significantly change the battery set-up compared to what has happened to date. According to some information coming from the certification laboratories, iPhone 12 could have a smaller and even simpler battery than the corresponding current models (where they exist). The explanation of how Apple could manage to reduce battery capacity (which means lighter devices and more space for internal components) is unclear. However, this could depend on the greater efficiency of the features that consume more current and, particularly, the screen and the processor
Charging the AirPods
According to some rumors that they did not prove to be accurate, iPhone 11 had to recharge other devices wirelessly merely by placing them on its back. In some Samsung phones, this feature could be useful for charging AirPods or maybe even an Apple Watch. The hypothesis that what has not been seen with iPhone 11 may appear in iPhone 12 comes from a strange component that a Chinese site would have attributed to the new phone. It is a circle made up of small magnets. Someone else thinks this element may come as a function of alignment with a next-generation magnetic charger that Apple is preparing in place of AirPower.
