We’re a few months away from the launch of the 2020 iPhones, which are expected in September or October 2020. There are already dozens of rumors about the upcoming devices. We’re expecting the 2020 iPhones to be called the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro.
The 2020 iPhones will feature major updates, introducing some of the first design changes that we’ve seen since the iPhone X was released in 2017. We’re expecting four iPhones in three display sizes which could come in at 5.4, 6.7, and 6.1 inches (x2).
Rumors suggest the 6.7-inch iPhone and one 6.1-inch model will be higher-end devices with triple-lens cameras, while the 5.4 and 6.1-inch models will be lower-end iPhones with dual-lens cameras and a more affordable price tag. All iPhones in 2020 are expected to feature OLED display technology regardless of price. A 120Hz “ProMotion” refresh rate could be included in some of the higher-end models. That’s not guaranteed due to battery life constraints and Apple could wait until 2021 to add the feature.
At a rumored 5.4 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 will be the smallest iPhone Apple has released since the 4.7-inch iPhone SE. At 6.7 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro will be Apple’s largest iPhone to date. The two 6.1-inch models will be similar in size to the existing iPhone 11.
Rumors suggest the new iPhones coming in 2020 will feature a metal frame that’s similar to the frame of the iPhone 4.
Rumors suggest there will be a new TrueDepth camera system that cuts down on the size of the notch on the front. A 3D triple-lens rear camera system that uses a laser to calculate depth information for objects in the room. Improving both photography and AR capabilities.
2020 will be the first year that Apple introduces 5G support in the iPhone. Allowing the new devices to connect to 5G networks that are much faster than 4G LTE networks. According to rumors, all of the iPhones in the iPhone 12 lineup will feature 5G connectivity. It’s not yet clear if all iPhone 12 models will have super fast mmWave support in all countries.
