We are all expecting Apple to the launch the iPhone 12 series on October 13 after the company announced a “special event” for that day.
But like most launches nowadays, a huge leak dropped with a laundry list of items we can expect on launch day. The leak came from Weibo, courtesy of Chinese tipster @Kang who, according to reports, have a strong reputation for accurate leaks. Apparently, the leaks were also confirmed by @IceUniverse, another popular leakster.
The leak confirms four iPhone 12 models — iPhone 12 Mini 5.4-inch, iPhone 12 6.1-inch, iPhone 12 Pro 6.1-inch, and a top-end iPhone 12 Pro Max 6.7-inch. The displays will use Apple’s Super Retina XDR panel and a new screen glass technology called Ceramic Shield Front cover.
5G is said to be onboard, although its not specified what frequencies it will use (apart from the devices supporting US 5G). The handsets will also have Smart Data Mode which toggles between 4G and 5G to manage use and battery life.
As for the cameras, the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 will have dual cameras consisting of a main lens and an ultra-wide angle lens with f/1.6 aperture. The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will come with three cameras — main, ultra-wide, telephoto — and LiDAR. The wide-angle cams of the Pro models will use a new 7P lens, while the Max could have a much wider field of view.
All four phones are said have the ability to shoot Dolby Vision.
The 12 Mini and 12 will have 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage capacities, while the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max will have 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
The leak included the prices of the new iPhone 12 series as listed below:
- iPhone 12 Mini (5.4-inches) starts at USD 699
- iPhone 12 (6.1-inches) starts at USD 799
- iPhone 12 Pro (6.7-inches) starts at USD 999
- iPhone 12 Pro Max (6.7-inches) starts at USD 1,099
Apart from the iPhones, Apple will also release the HomePod mini speakers. It is priced at USD 99 with an S5 processor.
There are many reports that support the latest leaks, but as always, be wary. Things could always be different on launch day. But we’ll find out soon enough how accurate these are.
