A set of 3D prints of the iPhone 12 models to be launched this fall by Apple has been displayed on the Japanese website Macotakara. Though the information itself is not based on any concrete source, the significance is that many anomalies are found in the dimensions. Some of the specifications seem to match the rumors already in circulation.
Some Confusion on the Design and Sizes
The understanding is that the three devices, the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will sport display sizes 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch respectively. The blog post accompanying the renders of the 3D prints claims the sizes it measured are 5.3-inch and 5.9-inch.
The flat shapes on the sides of the phone seen here maybe like the ones seen on the iPhone 4 model, years back. This tallies with what Ming-Chi Kuo had predicted in one of his posts. So, is this reliable? It is difficult to confirm since there are already rumors claiming this year’s iPhones will look taller and their overall thickness may be less than the last year’s models. The Macotakara revelation says the height measured from the 3D print of the iPhone 12 is 131 whereas the iPhone 11 measures 144mm. Does that mean the height is being reduced? This is not easy to comprehend. Even the width appears less.
Holes for Microphone at the Bottom Edge
There is another image of these 3D prints that have the phones stacked one over the other revealing what will be the bottom edges of the three iPhone models. It can be seen that the holes on the left side supposed to be the speaker slots, increase from 2 to 3 to 4 in the models. Will this be followed by Apple while designing and launching the models in 2020? Again, the questions can be raised based on what is in front of us. Only an official confirmation from Apple can clear all the doubts.
The current leak on the Macotakara site can be just taken as another attempt at making certain predictions about the 2020 models of iPhones. None of these can be assumed to be 100% correct.
