No matter whether or not you’re an Apple fan, you probably feel curious and excited about the iPhone’s yearly release. 2019 seemed to be the year of smartphone cameras, but what can we expect in 2020? Will the iPhone 12 series look different than all the phones that came before it? Will Apple add another lens or expand the screen size? Will they add another model or resurrect a former one? Below are the new iPhone’s rumored specs.
Naming Scheme, Models, and Sizes
If Apple follows their recent naming schemes, then the next iPhones will be called the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro series. Rumor has it that Apple will release four models in this year’s lineup. Yes, you read that right: four iPhone 12 models. One is a 5.4-inch phone (the iPhone 12), but the company will also release two 6.1-inch phones (the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro), along with a 6.7-inch phone (the iPhone 12 Pro Max). All 2020 phone models will feature OLED display.
2020 will definitely bring iPhone camera enhancements. The iPhone 12 cameras will have a dual camera, while the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will feature the triple camera enhanced by a time-of-light sensor. The triple camera will be able to capture more vivid depth. To be exact, it can scan up to 15 feet from the phone. How exciting is that?
The iPhone 12 models’ connectivity will support the sub-6Ghz spectrum (larger geographical coverage and lower downlink speed). However, the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max, the connectivity will support the 5G mmWave (less geographical coverage and higher downlink speed). This is the first time that Apple will adapt the connectivity type.
TouchID, Classic Design, and iPhone SE Resurrection
In addition to all the new features, we can also look forward to some major comebacks. For starters, Apple will bring back TouchID, which will likely feature the 3D Sonic Max reader (the latest Qualcomm update). The reader is 17 times larger than the reader on the Galaxy S10 and of course, it’s more secure.
Apple might also bring back a new version of the iPhone SE called the iPhone SE 2. This iPhone special edition is a game-changer for those who prefer a smaller handset and an advanced processor. Not to mention, it’s cheaper than most other iPhones. And of course, Apple will also bring back the classic iPhone 4 design. It’s thick, it looks and feels premium, and it’s very Apple.
These are simply some early predictions for the 2020 iPhones. As their September 2020 arrival gets closer, we may receive new information. But as usual, no matter how many changes Apple makes to the new iPhones, we’re excited regardless!
