We’re many months away from the launch of the 2020 iPhones, which are expected in September 2020, but there are already multiple rumors about the upcoming devices.
We’re expecting the 2020 iPhones to be called the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max if Apple follows the same naming scheme it used for the 2019 iPhone lineup.
The 2020 iPhones will feature major updates, introducing some of the first design changes that we’ve seen since the iPhone X was released in 2017. We’re expecting three display sizes which could come in at 5.4, 6.7, and 6.1 inches.
Rumors suggest the 5.4 and 6.7-inch iPhones will be the higher-end OLED devices, with Apple continuing to offer a lower-end 6.1-inch, but for 2020, the low-end device is also said to have an OLED display.
At a rumored 5.4 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro would be the smallest iPhone Apple has released since the 4.7-inch iPhone 8. At 6.7 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro Max will be Apple’s largest iPhone to date.
Design wise, rumors suggest at least one of the new iPhones will feature a significant redesign with a metal frame that’s similar to the frame of the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4 had a distinctive, flat look for its aluminum frame, which could be replicated in the new iPhones.
There could be a new TrueDepth camera system that cuts down on the size of the notch on the front, and there are rumors of a 3D triple-lens rear camera system that uses a laser to calculate depth information for objects in the room, improving both photography and AR capabilities.
2020 will be the first year that Apple introduces 5G support in the iPhone, allowing the new devices to connect to 5G networks that are much faster than 4G LTE networks.
