Apple unveiled its newest iPhone just a couple of days back, but it looks like we may have already gotten a glimpse at the next iPhone. YouTube channel, EverythingApplePro has released designed renders for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The leaks were in collaboration with the tipster, Max Weinbach and are pretty detailed as far as leaks go. Not only did the channel leak the CAD renders of the phone, but they also created a 3D printed design based on the leaks for a better look at the upcoming device.
Judging by the leak, the new iPhone 12 Pro Max would have flatter sides, which is pretty much in line with the new Apple iPad Pro that was launched a few weeks back. It is also very reminiscent of the old iPhone 5’s frame, albeit with a larger 6.7-inch design with the new aspect ratio. The leak also suggests the size of the bezels and the notch has also been reduced. The bezels are said to be 0.9mm thinner than before, while the notch has also been reduced considerably. This should ensure a greater screen-to-body ratio than its predecessor, something that was mentioned in the video. Further, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is also said to slightly thinner at 7.39mm, which is 0.71mm thinner than the 8.10mm thickness of the iPhone 11 Pro Max. It is also said the new phone will be taller and wider than the old device.
The rear camera module is pretty much similar to previous leaks. This includes the addition of a new LiDAR sensor alongside the triple camera setup. The LiDAR is another feature that was introduced in the recently launched Apple iPad Pro and should help with depth-sensing for better Augmented Reality (AR). The quad-camera arrangement is completed with the flash, which is now located in the middle of all four of the sensors.
The video also brings up the fact that the leaked renders suggest wider antenna bands, which could mean that the new phone may support 5G. The power button as been moved slightly lower, most likely to make it easier to press. The SIM card tray has also been moved to the other side of the phone. This is theorised to be done due to a different layout of the logic board. Interestingly, it seems like there is a Smart Connector where the SIM card tray used to be. It is not yet known what this will be used for, but it is used on the iPad Pro and is used to connect the keyboard accessory.
The YouTube channel noted that they also have a lot more information to share and have divided it into two separate videos. The second video is said to be released this weekend.
