Thereafter, there is the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max succeeding the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max respectively.
Then there is going to be a new entry-level iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch display. With that much of screen real estate, it will be like a modern makeover for the iPhone SE 2020 currently on sale. Apart from its similarity with the iPhone SE, another unique quality of the iPhone 12 is going to be its diminutive size thanks to the adoption of a zero-bezel design.
Let’s now move over to the rest of the leak.

It is going to be OLED all through though the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 will come with an aluminum construction compared to the stainless steel chassis for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

There sure are a few gray areas where conflicting rumors overlap. Mentioned here are some of those that has led to quite some confusion to prevail about the upcoming iPhone 12 models.
Pro Motion display:
For instance, EveryThingApplePro is claiming in a recent video that the Pro Motion display might not be a reality with any of the iPhone 12 models given battery considerations. With 120 Hz displays being power hungry, Apple sure will like to avoid having those on the iPhone 12 Pro models if there is a significant drop in battery run times.
Some sources claim all iPhone 12 models are going to be 5G ready while some have stated just the opposite. However, chances are that there is indeed going to be 5G feature available on iPhone 12 now that Apple and Qualcomm have resolved all their differences.
There is another area where we can gain from some clarity, more so when the iPhone 12 series are being associated with some battery draining features. Those include 5G and 120 Hz Pro Motion display. With details being scarce, Max Weinbach from XDA Developers is claiming there is a going to be a 4,400 mAh battery on the iPhone 12 Pro Max model. This should make for a decent sized battery for the top-iPhone 12 model and a nice upgrade over the 3,969 mAh battery that the iPhone 11 Pro Max came equipped with.
In the end, what can be said is that there still are a few months left for the iPhone 12 to be unveiled. That again if Apple is able to stick to its usual fall launch plans for the new iPhone given the Covid 19 pandemic the world is reeling under. There sure will be plenty more leaks and rumors coming our way in between all of which are going to be covered here diligently. Watch this space.
