Do you have any idea, how many iPhone 12 models Apple is releasing in 2020?
It is anticipated according to the latest reports that Apple is releasing four new iPhone 12 models in 2020.Here we should not forget the rumor about the iPhone SE 2, which could bring the total number of new iPhones in 2020 to five. On this week's Apple Core roundup, we heard rumors that TouchID is coming back .
How many iPhone models will be in Total?
According to JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee, Apple will launch four new iPhone 12 models in the fall of 2020: a 5.4-inch model, two 6.1-inch phones and a 6.7-inch phone. All of these iPhones will have OLED displays.
These size guesses were also confirmed this week by Ming-Chi Kuo who considers the current 5.8-inch size of the iPhone 11 Pro may be going away. So the 5.4-inch and one of the 6.1-inch models will be the lower-end devices, likely will be named as iPhone 12. So, the expensive range would be 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, respectively.
All of the new iPhone 12 models are expected to include all the features about which they were rumored; like new design and 5G support. However, the report claims that the higher-end phones (12 Pro and 12 Pro Max) will get 5G mmWave support and a triple-camera array. Chatterjee claims this camera to be a "world-facing 3D sensing" camera, which will contain a time-of-flight sensor to help capture depth information.
It's anticipated that the regular iPhone 12 models will have dual cameras and support the sub-6Ghz spectrum rather than mmWave.Kuo's report also states that Lightning support will be discarded from the 2021 iPhone range.
The TouchID returnMore reports this week claim that Apple will use Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint scanner in at least one of its new iPhones going to release in 2020.
The consumers around the globe have already seen many Android phones such as the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 with Qualcomm's in-screen fingerprint readers. This week, Qualcomm uncovered a 30x20-mm in-screen reader called the 3D Sonic Max which gives a little clue to users about what they might expect from Apple.
The 3D Sonic Max is 17x bigger than the version on the current Galaxy S10.Handset makers will be able to need two fingers for verification which would make it more secure.
Mini LED is coming to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro
A few weeks ago , the consumers came to know that the 2020 iPad Pro with new A14X chip may be receiving a new screen technology called mini LED, which might also make an entrance on the 16-inch MacBook Pro in the fall.
Mini LEDs allow screens that are slimmer and lighter than the current displays at 1/100th size of a traditional LED backlight. Like OLED displays, this latest technology of mini LED offers a wide color gamut, high contrast, great vibrant range and deep blacks. The report from Ming-Chi Kuo also claims that General Interface Solution (GIS) will serve as a supplier for these mini LED’s.
