EverythingApplePro and XDA’s Max Weinbach claim to have exclusively revealed the final iPhone 12 Pro Max design. It certainly looks authentic and aligns with recent rumors about its overall look. The biggest highlight from the apparent leak is just how much thinner the bezels are, something also noted by frequent Android leaker @UniverseIce.
Sanjiv Sathiah,

This is our first look at the final iPhone 12 Max Pro design according to EverythingApplePro and XDA’s Max Weinbach. The render reflects recent leaks about its iPad Pro-like flat edges and the incorporation of a LiDAR scanner into the camera array is based on new official CAD renders obtained by Weinbach. It also reveals that, despite the hopes of many, Apple will continue with a Face ID/True Depth camera notch, although it has been reduced in size and is less intrusive as a result.

Perhaps the most impressive aspect, assuming the design is accurate, is how much further Apple has been able to take the display right out to the edges of the device. This includes the ‘chin’ of the device which would make it the narrowest we’ve yet to see on virtually any other smartphone. Although the current iPhone 11 Pro Max and its immediate predecessors have what Apple claims is an ‘all-display’ design, its screen to body ratio of 82.1 percent isn’t especially impressive in the current market.

As has been rumored for previous iPhone designs, it is also possible that Apple could add a smart connector to the rear of the device as seen on the current iPad Pro models. This could be used for smarter case accessories, which is one area Apple still lags the competition. Also expected for the next iPhone is an A14 SoC, better cameras, better speakers and 5G connectivity for the first time on an iPhone. Although originally scheduled for September, current global events have pushed its official reveal back to October.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
