Leaks regarding Apple‘s top-level iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro devices started to appear a year ago, not long after the iPhone 11 launched. Now, information from reliable TF International Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has surfaced, depicting a few firsts for Apple’s devices.
The upcoming iPhone 12 will apparently highlight the tech giant’s upgrade plan, with a huge square camera setup on the rear side, glass screen, and metal edges. It is also rumored to be the first 5G Apple device.
The iPhone 12 Will Come With Improved Features
We’re now used to get out hands on new data about Apple’s upcoming devices from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the most reliable inside source when it comes to Apple-everything. Different sources sometimes report information as well, such as XDA-developers or Max Weinbach, but Kuo is the most consistent and accurate when it comes to new items coming from Apple.
A recent intel from Max Weinbach was released via a YouTube video, depicting some main highlights the upcoming iPhone devices will feature. As per the report, Apple will allegedly pack some big camera updates for the front-facing camera, as well as an upgraded Night mode that will be available for all the rear cameras, and the ultra-wide-angle lens will be getting an f/1.6 sensor.
Apple is expected to get Time-of-Flight sensors as well and improve the zoom capacities of the new iPhones without using a periscope lens, similar to what Samsung did. The camera is also supposed to get an enhanced HDR mode, which is allegedly called Smart XDR, and a macro mode that will allow users to get closer to the subject that other cameras allowed.
The video released by leaker Max Weinbach in partnership with EverythingApplePro also reveals other iPhone 12 features, such as a bigger 4,400 mAh battery for the Max model, and a 120Hz display. The report also says that Verizon might be collaborating with the tech giant on a red version of the iPhone 12 Pro, which will comes with a black frame, Apple logo, and red glass.
These are, however, unconfirmed rumors only, and because we are several months away from the release of the iPhone 12 series, we should take it with a pinch of salt as the products have yet to get manufactured.
