Apple is expected to launch as many as five new iPhones in 2020, with a different price bracket and sporting different hardware and display sizes.
The smallest will be a 5.4-inch model, while two phones will get a 6.1-inch display, whereas the top of the line iPhone for the year will get a 6.7-inch panel.
Japanese blog Mac Otakara has revealed new details about the devices. The blog claims to have gotten the information from sources within Apple’s supply chain in China and claims the 6.7-inch model will have a thickness around 7.4mm, which would be nearly 10 per cent thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro Max at 8.1mm.
Mac Otakara also claims that the 6.7-inch model will be slightly taller than the iPhone 11 Pro Max and feature a triple-lens rear camera with larger sensors than the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The report also claims that the iPhone 12 line-up could have the same housing design or similar design as the iPhone 11.
However, this is in contradiction to previous revelations by Ming-Chi Kuo, who has said the iPhone 12 will feature a boxier design similar to the iPhone 4.
Additionally, all models being launched in 2020 are said to feature OLED screens, and have previously been reported to pack a new “A14” system-on-chip processor and 5G connectivity.
To make things as clear as possible, here’s what we currently expect for the 2020 iPhone lineup:
- “iPhone 9” with design identical to the iPhone 8 with Touch ID, Home button among other things.
- 4-inch OLED iPhone, rear dual-camera.
- 1-inch OLED iPhone, rear dual-camera.
- 1-inch OLED, rear triple-camera and time-of-flight 3D tech.
- 7-inch OLED, rear triple-camera and time-of-flight 3D tech.
