A series of 3D printed iPhone 12 models designed based on leaked schedule and info from Apple’s supply chain was shared today by the Japanese website Mac Otakara, gives us a first look at what we can expect from the iPhone 2020 range.
Rumors have suggested that Apple will release four PiPhone 12 models by 2020: A 5.4-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max.
However, the pictures show all four sizes Mac OtakaraThe mockup seems to have a 6.5-inch iPhone 12 Pro Pro rather than a 6.7-inch version that has been rumored several times before.
In line with previous rumors, mockups for the two lower units have dual lens camera settings while the higher end models have a three-lens camera set similar to the installation of the current Pro models.
Mac Otakara says that the SIM compartment that was on the right side of the device in previous iPhone models moves to the left under the volume button.
This is a rumor we’ve heard before, and it seems to be a change Apple is making to accommodate the 5G antenna module, which is expected to be included in all four iPhone 12 models.
The iPhones also appear to have a variable number of speaker holes on each side based on the printed models, and all iPhones expected by 2020 will continue to have Lightning connectors.
At least some of the new iPhone models will have an iPad Pro design with a metal frame that has flat edges, which is a significant design deviation from current models. The higher-end models iPhone 12 Pro models are also expected to have a 3D camera setting similar to the LiDAR scanner in iPad Pro, but it does not appear to be depicted in the size models provided by Mac Otakara.
