Apple is looking to grow its sales figures even higher in 2020, at least that’s what all iPhone 12 leaks and rumours are suggesting.

So here we are gonna take a look at all the latest iPhone 12 leaks. To know that what Apple is cooking for its customers this year. We are going to breakdown all the things one by one.

Don’t Believe in the iPhone SE2 Trailer in this video, that’s not gonna happen. at least this year. The iPhone 12 trailer is worth checking.

The Design of the iPhone 12

Apple is planning to redesign it’s iPhone 12 series design this year. All the iPhones will get a redesign, let’s start with the iPhone 12.

iPhone 12 design

according to famous Apple Analyst “Ming chi kuo”, Apple iPhone 12 might come with two different screen sizes this year. Since Apple’s previous iPhone XR and iPhone 11 have the same 11inch LCD display and it was the only size to buy in the so-called budget iPhone.

But “Ming chi kuo,” says that he did the Research and he believes that Apple will launch the two sizes of the iPhone 12 with the sizes of 5.4inch and 6.1 inches. And this makes sense because of Apple’s last year’s iPhone 11 is one of the most popular iPhones of the year.

And iPhone XR was launched in 2018 and it was the bestselling smartphone in the world in 2019. So Apple might be thinking to give people more choices in the budget iPhone.

What makes it more impressive is that kuo also believes, Apple will use OLED panels for all of its iPhones this year. which is going to be the probably the biggest upgrade over the previous two generations for the iPhone 12.

Because the iPhone XR and iPhone 11, both had the LCD displays, so definitely this will be a huge leap.

The Return of the iPhone 4 Design

This the rumoured since the iPad PRO was launched. Apple changed the design of the iPad Pro and People loved it a lot. And since then it was a demand that Apple should bring this design to the iPhones.

And it seems like Apple has heard that request. The Boxier design to hold and smooth flat sides make the design exactly the same as Apple’s iPhone 4. but now as Apple’s design has evolved a drastically with the iPhone X.

It will be interesting to see how Apple will use that 10-year-old design to the iPhone 12 series to make it look new and modern.

The iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max design

Just like the iPhone 12. The iPhone 12 PRO and 12 Pro max will also get a new design. according to various sources, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will get a similar design. but with more premium build.

The body of the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be manufactured of Stainless steel. And yes there are the very high chances that the Mate Textured design will continue.

The iPhone 12 pro and pro max will also get the iPhone 4’s boxed design. which looks amazing, hope Apple will go for this boxier design.

The front design of the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max-

The front of the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max might still keep the Notch, but a shrunk one. According to the latest iPhone 12 leaks, the notch will remain to all regular iPhones this year. But the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro max will get a competitively small notch then the regular iPhone 12.

But let’s hope that Apple will get rid of that ugly notch this year. And all iPhones will iPhone will get rid of it.

A notch-less iPhone might surprise you

This is the part where things might get really interesting, “Ming chi kuo” also suggests that Apple might surprise us with a “Notch-less iPhone” this year, yes you read that right. A “Notch-less iPhone“.

He believes that Apple will use in-display cameras to achieve the notch-less look and FaceID will get replaced by the in-display TouchID. But there are some other leaks which suggest that Apple will keep the FaceID and still achieve the notch-less look.

Another famous leaker BenGeskin thinks that Apple has found the solution of the notch, how? according to him, Apple will put all of the important sensors into the top thin bezel of the new iPhone.

At first glance, it looks like a bit too ambitious to hope for a Notch-less iPhone this year. But because the sources are very reliable and even 9toO5mac says it could happen, so we can expect it. but I think that even if this leak would be true, then the regular iPhone 12 series will not get the notch-less front this year. it could be special and more expensive iPhone.

5G iPhones might come this year

5G is going to be the next big overhaul in the smartphone industry. However when Samsung, OnePlus, Huawei and other major brands have already joined the race of 5G smartphones. Apple is still behind then the rest of the competitors.

2020 might be the year when Apple might launch the iPhone with 5G support. As Apple has done a deal with the Qualcomm for its 5G modems. And it is expected that iPhone 12 series will get the 5G this year.

Some reports also suggest that Apple will launch the 5G iPhones in 2021. So we hope for the best. We hope that Apple will use 5G connectivity this year. But there could be one more possibility if Apple is planning to launch a Notch-less iPhone and it’s my prediction.

Special iPhone in 2020 – Notchless and 5G ( My prediction )

If Apple is really planning to launch a Notch-less iPhone as iPhone 12 leaks suggesting. Then I think the 5G will be limited to the special iPhone. Which could have the Notch-less design an 5G connectivity.

Why I am speculating that there might be a Special edition of the iPhone this year (Only if Apple will launch the Notch-less iPhone). Let’s understand it in a short answer as possible.

Apple will make sure that it will market there first ever Notch-less iPhone as there best iPhone they have ever made as always. And Apple will also try to make sure that apart from the “Notch-less” design, they will make the iPhone more worth upgrading as possible. So people will buy it more and Apple will make more and more profit.

Since the regular iPhones will have the same A14 chip, OLED displays, etc. So 5G can be a more marketable addition to the Notch-less iPhone. So Apple could make 5G exclusive to the Notch-less iPhone ( if Apple will launch a Notchless iPhone ).

The iPhone 12 – Camera

Apple has reached to the new heights with the iPhone 11 series in smartphone photography. iPhone 11 Pro is considered as the best camera smartphone ever. and the expectations are very high for the iPhone 12 series.

As we told you earlier that Kuo has predicted that iPhone 12 will come in tow different sizes. he also believes that both will feature the rear dual camera setup with some minor improvements. the front camera will remain the same as well. hoping that apple will include the ultra-wide-angle sensor in front.

For “Pro” models, there are many renders, which shows the 4-cameras on the back. which is definitely a possibility, and this could be a 3D Long-Range Sensor which will help iPhone to measure things more accurately and this could also help in Apple’s Augmented reality (ARdream project.

The addition of the 3D Camera can improve the Portrait Mode pictures by detecting the blur edges more accurately. The rest of the camera system will remain the same, same Ultra-wide sensor + wide sensor + Telephoto sensor.

Some possible software upgrade in the camera app

The software of the iPhone 12 camera app might also get some improvements. Such as the total control on the Night-Mode ( Manual ON-OFF ), Improved Night-Mode, Ultrawide camera support in the night mode.

The Display of the iPhone 12

Apple uses some of the best displays in there iPhones. Every year they use some of the best OLED panels from Samsung.

But this year it seems like Apple is ready to join Samsung, Google and OnePlus. In the race of High-Refresh Rate displays. It is rumoured that Apple will use the 120HZ high refresh rate display, a report from TechRadar also back this claim. Undoubtedly the High-Refresh Rate will improve the user’s experience, you will have the option to choose between Regular 60HZ to 120HZ.

High-Refresh Rate will definitely consume more battery but believe me it ill worth it. So it will be interesting to see whether or not Apple will feature the High-refresh Rate display.

More iPhone 12 leaks- FaceID 2.0, 5nm A14 Chip and more

Everything you need to know about A14 Bionic chip –

TSMC has been working on the A14 chip for about a few months now. Reports have claimed that the company is working on 5nm architecture for the upcoming Apple’s A14 chip.

A14 chip could be the first chip in the world which would be manufactured on 5nm architecture. The 5nm architecture will make the A14 chip more powerful, more energy/battery efficient. Because of the A14 chip will be so powerful, it will open new doors for the Apple to utilise that extra power to do things that they are not able to do yet.

Such as Higher quality video recording at more FPS ( Frame Per Second ), AR related processing with more options and on the day to day use. It will directly impact your battery life and performance of the iPhone 12. Which you will never notice on your day to day use. So we are hoping for a 5nm A14 chip from Apple this year.

FaceID 2.0

Last year Apple had improved the FaceID. But the improvements were too small that you can’t tell the difference between its first Generation in iPhone X and Second in the iPhone 11 series.

So we should expect a more advanced and faster version of the FaceID. There some rumours that Apple could include the in-display fingerprint scanner. which we will talk in the next one.

The USB Type-C

Everyone who uses their iPhone for data transferring or often transfers big size files knows the worth of a USB type-C worth. Apple has upgraded its Laptops and iPads from Lightning Port to USB type-C. And it is expected that finally, Apple will also upgrade iPhones from Lightning to USB type-C year.

The In-Display fingerprint scanner (TouchID)

This is something that people want to see in iPhones, since the iPhone X. Even Donald Trump wants the TouchID Return. And latest iPhone 12 leaks Apple had filed some patents regarding this technology last year.

This shows that Apple is actually thinking about the return of the TouchID but this time in-display. The patent shows that you will need to Touch your finger anywhere of the screen to unlock your iPhone 12.

What is the Release Date of the iPhone 12 series?

Apple iPhone 12 is expected to launch in Mid-Week of September later this year.

The Price of the iPhone 12

Since the launch of the iPhone 7 in 2016, Apple really started to increase the prices of the iPhones. Apple took it to the next level when they announced the iPhone X in 2017 along with iPhone 8 series.

Apple has increased the price of its iPhones significantly in recent years. The price tag has been got stuck on the $999 for 64GB Storage of the regular high-end iPhone since the iPhone X in 2017.

This has happened because Since then Apple has not been able to do anything innovative or extraordinary. So they could convince the people to pay a high price for the almost same iPhones every year.

This year thing could change if All the things I have mentioned, will become true. If Apple will add 5G, New Design, Notch-less display, in-display TouchID and all the new things. Then you should not surprise if Apple will ask you more then a THOUSAND BUCKS for the base variant of the iPhone.

The pricing of the 2020 iPhone could be between $1000-$1200 for Non-5G iPhones. And if Apple will choose the 5G then it would be above at least $1200.
