iPhone 12 with a 120 Hz screen, 3x zoom and in navy blue among some of its alleged specifications according to a leak
There are several rumors that point to important changes in Apple’s iPhone line of this 2020. The iPhone SE recently presented as an entry phone in the brand’s catalog and up to four new terminals for the high-end under the name of iPhone 12 to be presented in the fall of this year. Among its novelties? Improvements in the refreshment of the screen, the camera or the Face ID among others, also a new external color and design.
Based on reports from Max Weinbach (who has a good track record when it comes to leaks) from the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro they have published the Alleged Features and What the iPhone 12 Will Look Like Apple in its four models.
A dynamic screen refresh and relevant camera changes
One of the most prominent changes has to do with the screen of the iPhone, in the Pro models (there will be two iPhone 12 “normal” and two “Pro”) it is expected that Apple will add a ProMotion display that uses dynamic refresh at 120 Hz. This feature has been available on some iPads for years now and automatically switches between 60Hz and 120Hz refresh depending on what is being used on the device. This feature has been rumored for months.
The reason for not implementing it in full and always at 120 Hz is simple, it is a feature that consumes a lot of energy. In fact, another of the improvements that is expected is a better battery in iPhone 12 Pro Max (the largest of all at 6.7 inches), which will go on to have a 4,400 mAh capacity.
As for cameras, it seems that photos taken in low light conditions will improve with noise reduction, better image stabilization and faster autofocus. The LiDAR scanner already brought by the latest iPad Pro will also be present to improve focus and distance accuracy of objects. Finally, the camera zoom telephoto lens will have three magnifications instead of two as it happens now.
New (not so new) design and other expected novelties
We could already see the design in a previous filtration based on prototypes made with CAD designs. This is where we saw the introduction of the flat sides similar to iPad Pro or iPhone models like from 4 to 5s. Additionally, reference was made to a more compact TrueDepth module (the front camera system) and therefore a smaller notch. As for the Face ID of this notch, everything indicates that it will recognize faces at larger angles.
Continuing with the external design, Apple is expected to introduce a new color ‘Navy Blue’. The granular textured surface of the current iPhone 11 is also expected on the rear. This glass texture has reduced fingerprints on the phone and also improves grip compared to a completely flat glass.
Finally, it is more than likely that Apple will introduce 5G in its most powerful terminals, with Qualcomm as the supplier of the modem chips for 5G connectivity. Speaking of chip, they will arrive with a new iteration of Apple’s A-series chip, the A14 Bionic to replace the current A13 Bionic.
