With the iPhone 12, some changes and innovations compared to the current flagship model are expected.

iPhone 12 Details

According to current rumors, Apple is releasing four different models of the iPhone 12. These then differ from each other primarily in terms of their size, the display, and the cameras. While two smaller versions with double cameras are supposed to launch.

In terms of design, however, Apple seems to have orientated itself on an old friend in all smartphone variants: the iPhone 5s. Instead of rounded edges, Apple could again focus on clearer corners and bring the former design into the modern age with a few other adjustments. Initial information from industry insider Max Weinbach indicated in the EverythingApplePro YouTube channel to take the first pictures of the devices. However, this is a visualization of the website and not the official design of Apple itself.

iPhone 12: A14 chip with significantly more power?

According to the newest reports, the chips used in the 5G models of the iPhone 12 series should set new standards in performance and consumption. As Phonearena reports, Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC is expected to begin producing 5nm chipsets for the A14.

For your information, the lower the nm value in the chipsets, the higher the number of transistors that can be accommodated in the chips. A high number of transistors means that the chipsets not only have higher performance but also lower energy consumption. For comparison: The SoC that A13 Bionic used in the 2019 iPhone 11 was produced with 7 nm, which gives a total of 8.5 billion transistors on the chip. With the 5nm production method, there could be up to 15 billion transistors on the chip. This corresponds to an increase in the memory chip density by a total of 84 percent, which would mean a significantly higher operating speed for the A14.

Technology in the iPhone 12

What’s under the hood of the iPhone 12 is currently still unsure. There have been rumors about the “3D Sensing System” and the “Motion Control” system in the new iPhones. In addition, the expert believes that the cameras will be expanded by another sensor. Then the iPhone 12 could appear with a 3D time-of-flight sensor that can better capture depth.

Some sources believe that the iPhone 12 will have a 120 Hertz screen, touch ID in the display, and a USB-C connection. In addition, it is speculated that Apple is avoiding the large Notch in the display and is opting for a smaller version and also wants to orientate itself again in terms of design on the earlier iPhone models. Until the first official pictures of the iPhone 12 are available, however, these are only ideas and analyzes by the experts. There is broad agreement among industry experts that the new iPhones will support the next 5G mobile communications standard.

In order to be able to light the possible 120Hz screen for hours, experts are currently assuming that a battery with at least 4,000 mAh would be available on the iPhone 12. The Max variant, the largest version of the device, could even use a 4,400 mAh battery.

In fact, it was previously expected that the iPhone 12 would be introduced between September and October 2020, as was the case with the previous models. Apple traditionally unveiled the new iPhones in mid-September as part of a big keynote, with the devices usually going on sale two to four weeks later.

According to the reports, the release of the new iPhone series could now be delayed by several months. The trigger is, unsurprisingly, the spreading coronavirus. Apple, therefore, fears that the current situation would significantly reduce the interest and consequently the desire of customers to buy. A scenario that you want to avoid as much as possible with the first iPhone with 5G support.
