Rumored Features of the iPhone 12
The iPhone 12 specifications show that it will be one of the best iPhones. It will feature the latest hardware and software technology, and unsurprisingly, it will be the most expensive iPhone ever.
Here are the rumored features of the iPhone 12.
The iPhone 12 will be available in three variants just like the iPhone 11. Also, it may take the naming convention of its predecessor, and as such, the models of the iPhone 2020 might be called:
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone 12 Pro Max
Build and Display:
All three models of the iPhone 12 might feature OLED displays and in-display Touch ID functionality. It is believed that there will be variants boasting of a screen size of 6.7 inches, 6.1 inches, and 5.4 inches, respectively, to replace the 6.1-inch, 6.5-inch, and 5.8-inch screens on the iPhone 11 models. These models may also feature the sharper edges and a new metal frame structure that was the case of the iPhone 4.
Sony and Apple have had a longtime relationship, which is evident in Sony's high-end sensors being featured in iPhones. That being so, it is expected that the 64-MP IMX686 image sensor teased by Sony might be featured on the iPhone 12. Similarly, the iPhone 11 models feature triple-lens rear cameras, which may likely be the case on the iPhone 12.
Hardware and Software:
There are rumors that all models of the yet-to-be-launched iPhone 12 will feature an A14 chip. The smartphones may also run on a new iOS 14 instead of the iOS 13 on the iPhone 11. In terms of hardware, these latest devices might feature the same hardware despite their varying prices.
Battery and Connectivity:
One of the selling points of 2020's iPhone is the 5G technology that will be featured on all three variants of this smartphone. Hence, it will be one of the fastest smartphones ever in terms of network speed. Downloads and streaming will be done speedily and seamlessly. These devices may also feature a USB Type-C.
The iPhone 12's price can be deduced from that of the 2019 iPhones, which is around $699, $999, and $1,099 for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, respectively. Therefore, the iPhone 12 will be valued higher, especially if it has 5G support. Smartphones like the Galaxy S10 5G are offered at $1,299. Hence, the iPhone 12 may be around this range.
If you want to be among the first to get your hands on the iPhone 12, then you can prepare ahead for the fall of 2020 since other year's models of the iPhone were released at the same time. Nevertheless, it will be the best iPhone upon its launch thanks to the latest technology it will be revamped with. These features will be evident in their display, hardware, software, battery, and connectivity.
