Over the past couple of days, there have been several reports of what the iPhone 12 range would look like.
However, the latest reveal paints a completely new picture. The entry-level Apple iPhone 12 will sport a compact design of just 5.4 inches, and will come bezel-less.
The leak, originally published by Macotakara, a Japanese site that publishes information about the supply chain, was recently backed by Filip Koroy, a.k.a EverythingApplePro, a prominent YouTuber with 8.13 million subscribers.
The entry-level phone will use a 19.5:9 aspect ratio for a narrower device, and will also sport a new A14 chipset, OLED display, and 5G. But its biggest selling point, and what will come as a shock to many Apple fanboys, is the surprisingly low price tag.
For a point of comparison, the size of the iPhone 12 sits right between the smaller 2016 iPhone SE and slightly larger 2020 iPhone SE.
The 5.4-inch iPhone 12, and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will be available for US $649 and US $749 respectively.
However, with the lower price point, you might not be able to expect more advanced features including 2x optical zoom and augmented reality features like the LiDAR sensor used to 3-D map real-world environments in real-time. Plus the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 will come with dual cameras.
But if you can’t settle for a more ‘stripped down’ iPhone, and must have a triple camera phone, you’ll need to consider the higher price tags for the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, which is expected to retail for US $999, or the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max, running you US $1099.
