4 new iPhones for 2020

Like every year, Apple is preparing to launch a new generation of iPhones for later this year. Therefore, in 2020, we will see the iPhone 12 series replace the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro of 2019.

Apple is rumored to be working on 4 new models, one version of the iPhone 12 on the one hand and two versions of the iPhone 12 Pro.

We’ve gathered here everything we know thanks to leaks about the design, screen, performance, release date, or price of the iPhone 12 lineup.

Here is a brief summary of the new iPhone lineup for 2020:

iPhone SE 2020

inheriting the design of iPhone 8 with the components and features of iPhone 11.

  • 5.4-inch OLED screen with 2 cameras.
  • Launch date: in fall 2020

iPhone 12 “Max”

  • 6.1-inch OLED screen, module with 2 cameras
  • Launch date: in fall 2020.

iPhone 12 “Pro”

  • Launch date: in fall 2020.

iPhone 12 “Pro Max”

  • 6.7-inch OLED screen, 3-camera module with LIDAR
  • Launch date: in fall 2020.

What will iPhone 12 look like?

For Apple, the iPhone 12 will be a backlash design. All rumors and leaks suggest that this smartphone will offer a design reminiscent of the iPhone 4, with straight edges. The bezels around the screen will be much thinner, and the screen will now be completely flat. The notch above the screen will be tweaked.

This statement was made by Ming-Chi Kuo in September 2019, but also by Bloomberg sources and finally by Max Weinbach.

Is the USB-C port still appearing?

No, the iPhone 12 should have a Lightning port, but no USB-C port.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, it was not until 2021 that Apple abandoned the Lightning connector without replacing it.

Does it have a notice?

Yes, the screen of the iPhone 12 will continue to provide a notch to accommodate the sensors needed for Face ID.

However, for the first time since 2017’s iPhone X, the notch will be much narrower, and thus less prominent.

120 HZ OLED display

A new trend in the Android smartphone market is a screen at 90 Hz and above. This is what Apple has to offer on the iPad Pro with a 120 Hz screen that allows for a much smoother interface.

According to some sources, with iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, Apple should switch to the 120 Hz screen on its phones. This will also allow the brand to further demarcate the boundaries between Pro models and more accessible models.

In fact, the iPhone 12 will also enjoy an OLED screen this year, but only at 60 Hz. Therefore, Apple will be only dedicated LCD screens for iPhone SE.

Apple A14 BIONIC chip printed 5 nm

New generation phones will also come with new processors. The Apple A13 chip will make way for the Apple A14 Bionic chip, and production will remain the responsibility of TSMC.

The new chip will benefit from 5nm etched fineness, allowing a 15% increase in performance over the previously used 7nm process.

The iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max should enjoy 6 GB of RAM, while the other two models will be limited to 4 GB.

Does it have 5G compatibility?

Yes, all 4 iPhone 12 models will be 5G compatible. Be careful, they should only handle 5G SUB-6, not millimeters.

For the first time in a few years, Apple will use Qualcomm for iPhone modems. This will allow it to deliver higher performance than Intel models used in Europe so far.

5G compability

On the other hand, Apple will not be convinced by the 5G antenna provided by Qualcomm and therefore will design its own indoor antenna. The antenna bands will be wider and more visible on iPhone 12 than on iPhone 11.

LIDAR camera is taking over

Apple has integrated the Lidar sensor into the iPad Pro 2020. It allows the photo module to better manage its depth and understand its 3D environment as far as 20 meters away.

The new sensor will also appear on iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. This information comes from the leak of iOS 14.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max are expected to continue to incorporate the same pair of two image sensors (wide-angle and ultra-wide angle) as the iPhone 11.

šŸ“…When will iPhone 12 be made public?

Like every year, Apple is expected to reveal a new iPhone lineup in September. However, this year the release will be late due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Therefore, we should expect the iPhone 12 release in November 2020 or at the end of October.

Expected price of the product upon launch?

If we followed the price of the previous generation, the iPhone 12 would cost around $700, while it would cost more than $1,000 for the iPhone 12 Pro. However, the transition to 5G could allow Apple to justify the increase in phone prices
