As per the new report, Apple will be releasing four new different versions of the iPhone 12 on which, one of the models is a smaller version of the iPhone with a 5.4-inch screen (iPhone mini) which is larger than the 4.7-inch iPhone SE, but slightly smaller than the 5.8-inch iPhone 11.
The new smaller iPhone (iPhone mini) will be a part of the iPhone 12 addition, which Apple will be releasing the end of this year. Apple is working on 2 new iPhone 12 models (rumored) that would be the follow up on the iPhone 11 and the two high-end versions that would succeed the Phone 11 Pro Max and iPhone 11 Pro.
The new iPhone 12 versions (all 4) are expected to have OLED displays which literally means even the less expensive iPhone 12 models will have an OLED display, which will be prominent considering this feature is only currently available on more premium offerings like the and iPhone XS family and iPhone 11 Pro lineup.
OLED screens typically offer better contrast than LCD panels like those found on the iPhone XR and iPhone SE and also it offers deeper black tones. And as per the new sources, the iPhone 12 is rumored to have two cameras much like the iPhone 11.
iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Pro (expensive edition of Apple), will come with a Lidar sensor for augmented reality similar to the iPad and also a triple-lens camera, much like the iPhone 11 additions which are the biggest differentiators between the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max and the regular iPhone 12.
As per the report, the new iPhone 12 is expected to support 5G connectivity, and the iPhone 12 edition is expected to be Apple’s first 5G-supported smartphone although Samsung and many others have already been offering 5G.
The new iPhone 12 is a look-alike of the new iPad Pro (If rumors are true) and Apple is also said to be implementing new designs for the iPhone that has sharper edges and flatter stainless steel design like the new iPad Pro, than the current iPhone’s curved edges. Although the report doesn’t mention whether cheaper models will have this new design. The new iPhone 12 (iPhone mini) rumored to cost at $650 a bit cheaper than the iPhone 11 which is priced at $700 (2019) and XR launched at $750 in 2018.
Apple generally introduces its new iPhones at the end of every year, although there are other sources mentioning delay in the releases (delay up to two months) of the new iPhone 12 due to coronavirus pandemic. Also, some models might launch a few weeks later than usual, But they’re still expected to be released in this year of 2020
