In a fresh report appearing in Japan, quoting Chinese supply chain sources, it is revealed that this year’s iPhones will have a lesser thickness than last year’s models. The report by MacOtakara states that there will be four iPhone models released by Apple in its regular annual event in September 2020. The display sizes of these iPhones will be 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches for 2 devices and 6.7 inches, for the last being the iPhone 12 Pro Max.
2020 Thicknesses Predicted to be Lower than the 2019 Models
The major part of this revelation on the Japanese website relates to the predicted thicknesses of the different models. The thickness of the largest 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max is likely to be 7.4mm, much slimmer than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which was 8.1mm. Though there is no specific mention of the other models and their comparison with their predecessors, the conclusion to be drawn is that Apple has found a new technology to accommodate the new components inside its iPhones and still reduce their thicknesses. Once more details emerge, the secret behind this will be known. How thin iPhones are received in the marketplace among the users will be a separate question altogether.
Other Specifications Being Rumored
This report has other details about the iPhone 12 models as well. One of these is that all four models will have OLED displays and that the Face ID will figure in all of them. There is also a discussion about the heights of the different models. The height of the 5.4-inch model is likely to be higher than the iPhone SE and lower than the iPhone 8. One of the 6.1-inch iPhones models is set to have a height that is between the heights of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro.
On the camera sections in the different models, it is claimed that the top-end 6.7-inch model iPhone will have triple sensors while the other three lower models will have dual-camera setups. There is a prediction that there will be improvements in the specifications of the sensors over those fitted in the 2019 models. The processor is likely to be the new A14 Bionic chipset.
However, in the larger perspective, these are all rumors and are subject to confirmation by Apple.
