We are merely three months away from the month of September and it is not long when the next iPhone gets released this year. The iPhone launch has always been an important event in the tech world which sets the standards for all other smartphone launches. It inspires the design for other vendors out there who take inspiration from it.
But this year there might be a delay in the mega event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the pandemic will somehow end. Users are already excited to upgrade their handset once the product releases.
This year will also be no different in terms of naming and will follow the same pattern. We will be getting the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. That’s the successors of the current iPhone 11.
There’s going to be a heavy change in the designs of the iPhones this year as the leaks have shown until now. It seems the iPhone 5 square design will be back again this year to shock the fans. We can expect a lot of slimmer design and glass back finish. It would be interesting to see what Apple does to surprise the fans.
The launch generally happens in midweek of September but if things got delayed it might be pushed to a 2021 release but that seems unlikely.
The pricing would probably be similar in reference to the iPhone 11 but they will surely be different. One leak suggests that the base model of the iPhone 12 would start at around $649, the iPhone 12 Max could cost $749, with the larger iPhone 12 Pro may be priced at $999 while the top-end iPhone 12 Pro Max will be on the pricier side with $1099. All the mentioned prices are for the 128GB models. That will only be confirmed once the release happens.
The display will be an OLED display as usual with the leaks hinting at a possible 120Hz refresh rate. There is possible chance that all the iPhone 12 models will support 5G as we have already seen other 5G phones getting released in 2020. The handset will feature the powerful 5nm A14 Bionic processor with the larger version sporting a RAM of 6 GB. The new iPhones will support the new 802.11ay specifications that would increase the data transfer rates. There are no leaks regarding the battery capacity of the iPhone 2020 yet. The camera on the top models will feature a LiDAR scanner as the leaks have told earlier.
