4 new SKUs, 4 new colors: new renders present ideas of how the iPhones 12 might look
The 2019 iPhones are thought to acquire next generations called the 12 series. It may have up to 4 variants, as it is likely to accommodate at least 1 5G model this year. The rest of this line-up may be made up by successors to the 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. Earlier leaks have predicted that they will stick with a maximum of 3 rear cameras. A new set of renders by LetsGoDigital presents these lenses in a novel conformation.
These images (and their YouTube clip version) suggest that the next iPhones will also retain the square housing in which their main cameras are found. However, they are joined by additional components which may be TOF sensors and flash modules, in a way that makes the camera hump as a whole look distinctly asymmetrical to the point of just being messy. (Then again, the competing Samsung Galaxy S20 line is not projected to look any better in this respect.)
Otherwise, the 12 series as depicted are thought to have distinct mid-frames rather than glass or another material that curves to meet the screen. This same edge has a classic Apple appearance that might delight long-time fans of the brand. The screen in this image shows that its creator believes that the wide iPhone notch will persist into this 2020 iteration. However, it also appears shorter and more restrained than before.
The iPhone 12 series is now also projected to have price-tags that go from €810 (about US$872, for a base model) to €1160 (~$1277, for the highest-end 5G variant). For this, they may exhibit state-of-the-art specs such as OLED displays (across all of its models this time) that support 120Hz refresh rates, not to mention the latest A14 Bionic processor. Finally, these new renders incorporate the recently-arisen rumor that Apple will add Navy Blue to its smartphone color options this year.
