In recent years, Apple has offered similar hardware on at least two iPhone models, differentiating only the size of the screen and the battery. That could change in 2020, when the iPhone 12 Pro should not have all the features present in the Max version.
According to the EverythingApplePro channel, Apple intends to differentiate the Pro versions a little more this year, which would make the 6.7 inch model “the true flagship” of the brand. “It will have the best screen and best cameras”, according to youtuber Filip Koroy, who recalls that the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max are identical, except for the screen and battery.
In summary, the larger model of 2020 will bring a screen frequency of 120 Hz, 5G mmWave signal and the LiDAR sensor exclusively. The 6.1-inch Pro model would be without these features, although it still supports 5G and other improvements, such as Apple’s new A14 chip, manufactured in the 5 nm process, and 6 GB of RAM, just like “brother ” bigger. The difference from “Pro Max” to the 6.1-inch Pro may be hardware only, so unless Apple maintains the number of cameras from last year’s models.
Four models on the way
A source quoted by journalist Max Weinbach, who also participated in the video, allegedly put his hands on an iPhone 12 Pro Max and said the device does not have a good grip, as it is a little slippery. Apple should change the slightly curved sides used since the iPhone 6 and switch back to the classic straight sides of models like the iPhone 4 this year, which can cause awkwardness for the user. A cover should solve any handling problem.
According to a recent leak, the names of Apple’s four smartphones should follow the same logic as the previous generation. But there is one more model this year, which should be called the iPhone 12 Mini, with a 5.4 inch screen, while the others follow the nomination iPhone 12 and 12 Pro for the 6.1 inch and iPhone 12 Pro Max, for the 6.7 inch.
There is still no official date for the announcement, but Apple is expected to make the 2020 line of its phones official in mid-October.
