Apple’s upcoming iPhone 12 is expected to come in four different-sized variants and the base model could be smaller than the recently launched iPhone SE 2020. The entry-level iPhone 12 is rumoured to feature a 5.4-inch display with a notch cutout for the Face ID and selfie camera.
A video posted recently on Twitter by Everything Apple Pro shows an alleged CAD render of the upcoming iPhone 12 being compared to the iPhone SE 2020 that was launched in April as the budget iPhone.
Even though the new iPhone SE features a smaller 4.7-inch display, it has broad bezels on the top and bottom for the selfie camera and Touch ID button that give it a 16:9 aspect ratio. On the other hand, the iPhone 12 is rumoured to feature a 5.4-inch display with a smaller Face ID notch cutout on the front giving it a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. This allows the phone to have a large screen estate in a relatively small metal casing, making it more compact that the budget iPhone.
This is in line with our previous reports that hinted at a flat-design for the iPhone 12 as opposed to curved sides. Latest rumours indicate that all the iPhone 12 models Apple is preparing to announce this year will feature OLED screens and will be powered by A14 Bionic chipset with 5G support.
Previous leaks have also hinted that the new iPhones for 2020 will be priced aggressively, with the iPhone 12 starting at $649. The iPhone 12 Max is expected to be priced starting at $749 while the other two models, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max are rumoured to come with triple camera setup along with a LiDAR sensor like the one on the recently launched iPad Pro. Both the phones are expected to feature a high 120Hz refresh rate as well. The iPhone 12 Pro could start from $999 while the larger 12 Pro Max is said to be priced at $1099.
Apple is expected to host its iPhone event in September, but the event may be moved by a few days or weeks due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Additionally, given that we’re still many months away from the actual launch, a lot can change between now and then. So, we’ll advise our readers to take this with a pinch of salt.
