2020 iPhone Shock Revealed As Five 'All-New' iPhones
The iPhone 12 lineup of Apple has just leaked out in breathtaking detail. But now new details not only conflict a lot about this, it also provides the company's revolutionary all-new 2021 iPhone a first look.
Recognized Japanese site Macotakara provides the shocks, having tapped into its supply chain sources to achieve 3D printed designs of the four Apple iPhone 12 models and completely overhauled 2021 redesigns. If right, this year's news will leave millions of iPhone users disappointed but blown away by Apple's ambitious plans for the so-called iPhone 13.
Starting with the four iPhone 12 versions, Macotakara reveals that the range outside does not deviate as much from the iPhone 11 lineup as predicted, contrary to public belief (and notwithstanding all-new internals).
The models reveal that Apple would stay with the iPhone X's wide monitor notch, maintain the Lightning connector, and remove the LiDAR sensor first used on the latest iPad Pro and rumored to be added on the iPhone 12 Pros. That ensures the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max continue with triple cameras in a triangular configuration, while the latest entry-level 5.4-inch iPhone 12 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max can get dual cameras while the iPhone 11 has only one lens.
Overall, there are major failures here but, alternatively, the 2021 entry-level iPhone 13 Macotakara mold blows all expectations away.
For 2021, Macotakara reports that Apple will cover the notch with a tiny front camera punching hole and will conceal all other FaceID sensors under the glass thanks to Samsung's 'Under Panel Sensor' technology. Owing to smaller bezels, the 5.4-inch standard panel can also raise to 5.5-inch in the same case and eventually substitute the Lightning port with USB-C. Eventually, the back of the phone displays room allocated for up to five modules in the sensor spike.
While much can still change with respect to the 2021 design, if the sources of Macotakara are correct, I suspect that many potential iPhone 12 owners are postponing their upgrades to 2021. Internally, the iPhone 12 models will be all-new thanks to the greatest upgrade of the A series in years , 5 G across the range, 120Hz ProMotion displays (with some doubts) and prices that will undercut the contest. That being said, a fourth generation of the same design that the iPhone X introduced in 2017 may demonstrate to be a dealbreaker.
All of which puts us in for a heavyweight clash. Macotakara popularly scooped Apple 's decision in 2016 to remove the headphone jack and has ever since delivered a solid set of exclusives. That said, Apple insider's most insightful 2020 has very clear perspectives about the iPhone 12 and 13.
