It may be nine months until consumers can get their hands on any of Apple’s presumptively named iPhone 12 handsets, but that doesn’t mean the iOS powered smartphones are a mystery. Not only do we know many of the key features, we also have a very good idea about the handset design.
With that information, it’s possible to put together all the data to illustrate the upcoming smartphones. And the teams at Let’s Go Digital and Concept Creator have done just that.
On show here are the designs of the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Both handsets – indeed all of Apple’s iPhone 12 handsets this year – are expected to come with 5G (although countries without the necessary infrastructure may only be offered 4G models).
The two Pro models are widely expected to ship with a three lens camera system, and a fourth time of flight camera on Pro Max to gather extra depth information which will be useful both in AR-powered applications and Apple’s post processing filters (including he addition of bokeh or portrait lighting).
Once more Apple is using an off-centre design for the camera hub, and the flat surface reminiscent of an induction hob from Ikea remains. The push to have a front aspect that is all screen continues, with a mix of smaller bezels and larger screens contributing to the effect.
Let’s take a closer look with a full-on preview video from Concept Creator:
The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max are all expected to be revealed in early September 2020, with public availability by the end of the month.
Before then, a smaller iPhone is expected in March. Potentially called the iPhone 9, this handset will be the spiritual sequel to the iPhone SE. Following the iPhone 8 design but featuring the specifications of the iPhone 11, this ‘SE2’ could be the most important handset that Apple launches this year.
