The Apple iPhone 12 has finally been revealed and I’ll be sharing the details right. So it’s been over a week since my last update is iPhone 12 News has been light on the ground mostly kids have been keeping quiet but we finally have the new iPhone 12 revealed, news of mass production beginning and some issues with the iPhone 12 display.
So we’ll start with the display information as most of you will already know what one of the iPhone 12 that the iPhone 12 max was having its display manufactured up by BOE and LG or the other iPhone 12 that you’ve displays from Samsung a new report has stated that BOE actually failed to deliver the first shipment of OLED panels for the Apple iPhone 12 and the failure was apparently down to the displays at not passing the OLED quality control tests to make these displays at BOE partnered with General interface solutions for the touch panel so it’s not clear who was at fault or what the issue was interestingly enough though it’s not only Apple and reports suggesting that they failed from multiple vendors.
Now luckily for Apple fans 80% of the iPhone 12 displays are being produced by samsung displays we also have LG Bo we do have time to fix things at but regardless it shouldn’t affect
timing or price of the iPhone 12 on that note though we already have news that the iPhone 12 is nearly finalized and ready to hit mass production a report from dizzy times has stated that Apple is actually finishing its second phase of final tests with mass production to begin shortly interestingly enough this is for all models of the iPhone 12 this doesn’t mean that they’re all going to be released at the same time but all of the iPhone 12s are going to be in the same launch event.
We had earlier news that issues the antenna required design changes but it seems that this hasn’t caused too many problems and it’s not going to delay the iPhone 12 this is further backed out by Apple filing legal paperwork and registrations for nine different iPhone models and to be clear these are all for the iPhone 12 in yes I know there are only four models of the iPhone 12 but it’s to account for slight variations in different regions now finally we’ve got the new reveal of the iPhone 12 but it may not be what you expected the new information comes from phone arena who have provided at multiple renders from multiple different angles well it pretty much falls in line with everything else you can see on the iPhone 12 pro max we have a rather large not which isn’t what we’re expecting and on the smaller models that we have a triple camera setup when we were actually expecting a jewel now to be honest phone arena provide us with a lot of lovely renders but they quite often can be incorrect that being said it does also fit those 3d printed models we had from Akio Takara I’m gonna lean more towards John processes leak with the smaller not on the iPhone 12 as John sauces have been very reliable so far so there’s not really any need to doubt him until we’re shown otherwise now for those of you that want detailed specs for each device we’ve already had all of the information for all four models of the iPhone 12 so to start with it we put the entry-level model of the Apple iPhone 12 and this is of course going to be called the iPhone 12 it’s a five point four inch iPhone with an OLED at Super Retina display from Samsung.
Now it’s important to note straight off the bat that super Retina means absolutely nothing so don’t get too caught up on that but it’s gonna be an OLED display at a resolution of 23 40 by 1080 which gives us 475 pixels per inch and it has an 8 bit color depth well there have been rumors of all models having a 120 Hertz display unfortunately this model is 60 Hertz only it’s going to be equipped with 4 gigabytes of RAM and a choice of 128 or 256 storage and it’s made of an alum embody and of course uses the a14 Bionic with 5g support the iPhone 12 comes with the dual camera setup on the rear and it will of course be shipping with iOS 14 for those of you that want the iPhone 12 with four gigs of RAM and 128 storage.
It’s going to be launching it’s six hundred and forty nine dollars if you want four gigs of RAM and 256 storage it’s seven hundred and forty nine next up we’ve got the iPhone 12 max to be clear this is the max and not the pro max the iPhone 12 max has a 6.1 inch OLED display this is again a super Retina OLED display but provided up by Chinese manufacturer boe it comes with a resolution of 25 32 up by 11 70 and this gives us a 460 pixels per inch and it has an 8 bit color depth we get 4 gigs of ram and a choice of 128 or 256 storage and of course that the iPhone 12 max is powered up by the a14 Bionic chip it’s an aluminium body it’s got 5g connectivity and we get another dual camera setup on the RAM for those of you that want the 128 gig version of the iPhone 12 max.
It’s going to be launching at seven hundred and forty nine dollars and if you want the 256 gig version it rises at eight hundred and forty nine next up we’ve got the iPhone 12 promo the iPhone 12 pro has a 6.1 inch display so it’s actually the same size as the iPhone 12 max we’ve got an improved display and specs on the iPhone 12 pro we’ve got a 6.1 inch Super Retina display with promotion and a 10-bit color depth the display is manufactured by Samsung and it’s got a resolution of 25 32 by 11 70 which gives us 460 pixels per inch and it is of course a 120 Hertz display the – 12 Pro comes with 6 gigs of RAM and a choice of 128 256 or even 512 internal storage it of course ships with apples a 14 bionic in the iPhone 12 pro is 5g compatible it comes in a stainless steel body and on the rear we get a triple camera set up along with a lidar sensor for the debt for the 128 gig iPhone 12 pro its launching at 999 dollars for 256 gigs its 1,099.
And for those that want the 512 gig iphone12 pro it’s one thousand two hundred and ninety nine dollars last but not least we have the iPhone 12 pro max the iPhone 12 pro max comes with a six point seven inch OLED display again it’s a super retina with promotion 10-bit color depth and of course it is manufactured by Samsung it’s got a resolution of 277 8 by 1280 for giving us 458 pixels per inch and again it’s a 120 Hertz display it comes with 6 gigs of RAM and a choice of 128 256 or 512 storage it’s in a stainless steel body and the iPhone 12 pro max is of course powered by the a 14 Bionic with 5g support just like the iPhone 12 pro we get a triple camera set up on the rear along with the additional lidar sensor for those of you that want the 128 gig iPhone 12 pro max its launching at 1099 dollars if you want the 256 gig version it’s 1199 and for those that were the most expensive in the range the 512 gig iPhone 12 pro max its launching at a whopping at one thousand three hundred and ninety nine dollars of course that there’s plenty more information on the Apple iPhone 12.
So we’re expecting to get four new iPhone 12 in the range which is gonna be two different iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 pro max we’re expecting Apple to increase the display sizes on the most premium models although those who want to smaller display are still gonna have an option reliable analyst min cheek whoa his advice if there’s going to be two iPhone 12 versions the small iPhone12 is going to have a 5.4 inch display and the larger one will have a 6.1 inch we then get a 6.1 inch display which is the iPhone 12 pro with a 6 point 7 inch display which is the iPhone 12pro max unlike last year however all models are reportedly going to be using an OLED display and the resolution will differ across the range the 6.1 inch iPhone 12 will likely have a lower resolution than the 6.1 inch iPhone 12 pro and what there are rumors of Apple removing the knotch I really can’t see this happening in typical Apple fashion we’re still expecting a full screen display with a notch top center it’s too early for in display camera sensors and I can’t see Apple going for a punch hole they also need a time-of-flight sensor on the front for their 3d face unlock and while Apple did ditched a fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 10 .
There were reports that it’s going to be coming back in the form of an in display fingerprint scanner there are reports suggesting that Apple are also going to be increasing their refresh rates on the latest displays while most phones have stuck to 60 Hertz displays it’s been changing recently an apple or also going to be joining this trend at this stage we don’t know if they’re going to be using 90 Hertz 120 Hertz or even a mixture of the two across the range when it comes to the rear of the device we’re expecting a similar camera setup to last year but the more premium model will have more cameras minke quo has again advised at both the iPhone 12 pro and the iPhone 12 pro max are going to be adding time-of-flight cameras to the RAM for those unaware time-of-flight.
Cameras are 3d depth cameras and then what Apple uses on the front for the 3d face unlock the time-of-flight sensors on the rear however use slightly different technology that allow it to map 3d objects from further away this significantly improves augmented reality applications and allows for more improved portrait style photo and video effects we’re likely going to see slight upgrades on the other cameras of the iPhone 12 but given the great performance in its predecessor they won’t be changing things too much reports are suggesting that the two more budget models are going to have a dual camera setup or the iPhone 12 pro and the iPhone 12 pro max are going to have a quad camera setup with the inclusion of the 3d depth camera.
The iPhone 12 is of course going to be powered by the new a 14 Bionic processor this is actually manufactured using five nanometer lithography which will bring significant improvements and there’s a good chance that it will be the first five nanometer chipset to hit the market when it comes to round the iPhone 12 pro max is expected to come with six gigs of ram or the standard iphone 12 will only have four this is something that I think Apple actually do well compared to Android manufacturers where they throw in a necessarily large amount of memories causing the consumer to pay for memory that they don’t even need when it comes to storage or expecting a choice of 64 256 or 512 gigs of internal storage for the first time ever consumers foul Apple did a great job in prioritizing the battery life from the predecessor.
So hopefully that’s something that’s going to continue with the iPhone 12 what graphene batteries are still out of the question that we can expect a 5.4 inch iPhone 12 to be around 2,800 milliamp hours the 6.1 inch is probably going to be around 3150 the six point seven inch should contain around a 4,300 milliamp hour battery one thing that is a little unknown at the moment is of course 5g connectivity Apple are very bad when it comes to 5g thanks to earlier issues with Qualcomm so we’re on tour at this stage if that’s something we will see in the iPhone 12 is rumored that the iPhone 12 is going to have 5g connectivity but there aren’t actually any leaks or reports to back that up the open 12 is going to be IP 68 water resistant and it’s of course going to ship with iOS 14 now when it comes to the price people wanted lower prices and that’s exactly what we’re getting Apple surprised us last time they surprised us again with the iPhone se and now the iPhone 12 is going to be the same will be getting the base 5.4 inch iPhone 12 starting as 649 dollars the iPhone 12 6.1 inch at 749 the iPhone 12 pro 6.1 inch at 999 and finally the iPhone 12 pro max 6.7 inch phone at 1099 dollars some very reasonable prices from Apple who have clearly been focusing on keeping the cost down.
Of course it’s not all about specs and we’re likely going to see some new software features or improvements to the current features in iOS 14 the iPhone 12 is set to launch in September as always and it’s always around the second week they release so we can expect to see the iPhone 12 range on either their 8th or the 15th of September and the iPhone 12 will be released about 10 days afterwards of course being so far away these are leaks and rumors.
