The iPhone 12 unexpectedly continued to come (both good news, bad news and unexpected twists), but now we know perhaps the biggest problem with Apple’s new iPhone.
Industry insider ‘Mr White’ has continued to track down Apple’s impressive hardware leak record by revealing the chassis for the iPhone 12. Looking ahead, this confirms the scope of the transition to design. new more angular, he also confirmed Face ID will be the same size and, therefore, the big notch introduced with iPhone X in 2017 will not become smaller by 2020.
Update 08/08: more pictures of the prototype iPhone 12 Pro screen Leakage and, unfortunately, it looks like Apple is sticking with the larger notch on its Pro models as well. The chassis once again affirms the angular design that Apple will recommend for this range, influencing both the iPhone 4 and the current iPad Pro line. That said, with Apple now all but for sure remove the fast refresh rate on all iPhone 12 models, especially the iPhone 12 Pro versions, is losing luster. Especially considering their The asking price is significantly higher. With this new leaked image being a prototype, there may be some hope that Apple has made a later, more ambitious change to the final iPhone 12 designs but the signs are Doesn’t look good.
Apple has been expected to narrow the notch for the iPhone 12 lineup and almost every rendering suggests this will yield a significantly better design. Moreover, with recent leaks also revealing that Apple will raise prices while narrowing battery capacity, the company’s decision to stick with the fourth-generation in a row could be a disruption for some. potential upgrade home.
That said, for those who hate the notch, there are still some causes for optimism. Although Mr. White did not disclose which iPhone 12 models had a chassis, it seemed to be the new 5.4-inch phone. So maybe Apple plans to introduce a smaller notch with the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.
However, beyond this, there are still compelling reasons to upgrade. Most notably, all iPhone 12 models will come with 5G (though different versions), multi-generational performance hops, a wider screen size range, and faster charging (potentially magnetism). The Pro models will also add some radical new camera technology.
All for users at the crossroads. At least with Apple officially delaying the release of the iPhone 12 and the possibility of a split launch increasing, you’ll have longer time to get your mind up.
