- iPhone 12 series dummy units reveal design similar to iPhone 4
- The upcoming iPhone 12 models will likely have a flat-edge design
- iPhone 12 launch event is expected to take place in mid-October
The iPhone 12 series is expected to be announced sometime in October if a recent leak by tipster Jon Prosser is to be believed. Ahead of the launch event, some images have leaked out showing dummy units of the 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models. The images have been provided by a case maker and were spotted by 9to5Mac on an Apple fan community page HaAppelistim. The images reaffirm the flat-edge design of the upcoming iPhone 12 models, which bears similarities to the iPhone 4.
It seems Apple is really going with the flat-edge design as opposed to the curved design that we have been seeing since the iPhone 6 series. The boxy design is also similar to the 2018 and 2020 iPad Pro models, so there seems to be some sense of uniformity being applied between the two product categories.
The iPhone 12 series is said to include a 5.4-inch model (iPhone 12), two 6.1-inch models (iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro), and a 6.7-inch model (iPhone 12 Pro Max). The images further show the square-shaped camera modules on all four dummy units. The regular iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max are said to come with a dual-camera setup, while the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max models are expected to get a triple-camera setup with a LiDAR sensor.
The iPhone 12 series launch event is rumoured to take place in the 42nd week, which commences from October 12th. All four models are expected to get the typical wide-notch display. The iPhone 12 lineup will come with 5G support and the latest A14 Bionic chipset, going by reports so far.
