We’re now days away from the launch of the new iPhone with the Apple Event taking place on 13th October. Every year, before the launch of the new iPhone, we get leaks of the specifications and design of the device, and this year is no different.

Based on the leaks, we’re looking at four variations of the iPhone – the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. All four of them are said to come with an A14 chip, iOS 14, and 5G support.
In terms of RAM, the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 Max are said to ship out with a 4GB RAM while the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max should pack on 6GB. Rumor mills are rife with mockups of the phones and suggest a 5.4” BOE OLED Super Retina display on the iPhone 12 Mini and a 6.1″ BOE OLED super retina display on iPhone 12 Max.
The iPhone 12 Pro on the other hand comes with a 6.1″ Samsung OLED Super Retina XDR display with promotion technology. The iPhone 12 Pro Max also comes with the same quality display with size being 6.7″.
Let’s talk a little bit about the design.
On the front, Apple has stuck to the design of the iPhone 11, which consisted of a pretty noticeable notch, something not a lot of people were fond of. Ever since the iPhone 11 was released, we’ve had several phones come out with both a similar design and alternate versions of it. Some have even gotten rid of the notch altogether, so it’s interesting to still see it being revisited on the iPhone.
Although the front looks the same, and the sides and the overall body gets a flat design, something that we got to see in iPhone 4. The corners would still be curvy, but the sides would be flat.
Moving on to what is essentially the most notable change so far – the camera. The iPhone 12 Mini and 12 Max are rumored to sport a dual 12MP rear camera setup whereas the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max consist of a triple 12 MP camera Plus Lidar setup.
What’s different this time is the placement. Everything on the rear of the phone seems to be untouched apart from the Lidar setup. Both Pro offerings are rumored to sport a triple-lens setup that has been almost as divisive as when the notch first came out – scratching your head over the decision to include this in the design? We’re with you on that.
If these rumors and leaks are accurate, we’ve got a pretty significant change in terms of the overall design and Lidar addition on the rear camera setup on the iPhone 12 Pros.
What do you think of the new design? Will you be upgrading this year? We’d love to hear your thoughts and comments!
