iPhone 12 Full review | Sneak peek | 360TechnoWorld

Apple's iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max haven't been on sale long, but all eyes are on the Cupertino company's 2020 handsets — and for one very good reason.

Next year's iPhones will reportedly be Apple's first to support 5G networking. At least one model will support 5G — and possibly all iPhones beginning in 2020 are going to be ready to cash in of the faster networking standard. Other reports point to an all-new iPhone 12 design that kills the notch, in-display Touch ID functionality and a minimum of two new sizes.

It's still very early, and far can change between now and therefore the fall of 2020. Still, there are many leaks already out there. Here's what the rumor mill is saying about the new iPhone 12.

Apple could also be introducing a replacement camera technology - named 'sensor shift' - to the iPhone 12, which can improve image stabilization.

The iPhone 12 line could also be slightly costlier across the board — perhaps by $50 or more — than their predecessors, according to the latest insights from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

The iPhone 12 will likely feature a larger battery, consistent with a replacement report, because the battery protection circuits are going to be smaller within the new iPhone.

Apple will reportedly release five new iPhones in 2020, consistent with a report from Ming Chi Kuo. Kuo predicts a 4.7-inch iPhone SE 2 will debut within the half of next year, and 4 iPhone 12 models with 5G will launch next fall.

iPhone 12 release date

The iPhone 11 lineup debuted at an Apple press event Sept. 10, so it stands to reason that the new iPhone 12 will follow in September 2020. (Here's a tip: keep the second week of September free and do not forget to account for Labor Day if you would like to guess the precise announcement date.)

There’s always an opportunity that Apple would accompany an earlier launch in 2020 to avoid losing an excessive amount of ground to rival phone makers who’ve already begin with 5G models. But that might be an unusual move for Apple, which tends to limit its phone releases to the autumn. However, there seems to be an honest chance a lower-cost iPhone SE successor may appear earlier. (More on that below.) 

iPhone 12 price

The iPhone 11 starts at a reasonably affordable $699, while the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max cost $999 and $1,099 respectively. The wild card is what proportion 5G support will increase the worth of the new iPhone 12.

Most 5G-capable phones beginning this year are priced at a premium compared to standard models. The Galaxy S10 5G, for instance, starts at $1,299 — a $300 premium over the already pricey Galaxy S10+. The newly released Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G also costs $1,299, which is $200 quite the quality Note 10 Plus.

Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo was initially pessimistic about the worth of 5G iPhones. In November, he wrote about the increasing costs of the iPhone's motherboard, which might lead you to believe that the phone as an entire would be costlier too. However during a newer report, Kuo was actually positive about the pricing for the iPhone 12, saying “Apple will not significantly increase the price of 5G iPhones compared to this year's lineup”, the worth raising by between $30 and $100 counting on the precise version. Kuo believes that Apple has found ways to offset the extra cost he alluded to before. 

One advantage Apple could enjoy by waiting until 2020 for its 5G phone is that the worth of 5G components may drop in then, allowing Apple to release the iPhone 12 for round the same price as what you’d buy an iPhone today. That’s pure speculation at now though, and Kuo's report makes it seem less likely.

5G networks also will be farther along than they're now, with 5G coverage limited to pick neighborhoods in only a couple of cities. For example, T-Mobile has already launched its low-band 5G network, which offers speeds slightly faster than what LTE traditionally delivers. So, although Apple will begin with 5G devices later than Samsung, OnePlus et al., the iPhone 12 might be arriving right as 5G becomes relevant to more people. 

iPhone 12 design: Death for the notch?

The notch that's become so familiar since Apple introduced it on the iPhone X might be on its answer for the 2020 iPhone. A China Times report says Apple is prepared to maneuver faraway from the notch, and while a Credit Suisse analyst says which will happen by 2021, the first notch-free iPhone during a long while could arrive by 2020.

Benjamin Geskin, who comes up with tons of phone renders supported leaks and rumors, has put out a render of a 6.7-inch iPhone that drops the notch and instead houses the iPhone's TrueDepth camera components inside a skinny bezel. Geskin tweeted that this is often a prototype for a 2020 iPhone model. In a subsequent tweet, Geskin said Apple's testing out Face ID prototypes that feature components capable of fitting within the phone's top bezel, though there's no source attributed to that claim.

Another rumor is that Apple is looking to phase out the round-edged design it first established with the iPhone 6 line and has carried through to the latest iPhone 11 series. The New Look would evoke the iPhone 4's matte aluminum band aesthetic, adopting sharper edges with flat sides and flatter front and rear glass slabs.

A concept published by PhoneArena helps us visualize how this rumored design could shake out. Also notice the more slender notch at the highest of the display, with increased land for the time and battery icons to the left and right of the earpiece and TrueDepth camera system.

Meanwhile, many designers have already began distributing video renders of their hopes for the design of Apple's forthcoming handsets. One such mockup, created by a designer named Techy Paradise, illustrates a notch-free device similar to that 6.7-inch prototype Geskin hinted at, with a quartet of camera lenses on the back for good measure.
