Apple iPhone 12 buyers might need to spend $63 to replace the missing EarPods and charging brick
All iPhone 12 models are expected to be powered by the A14 Bionic chipset produced by TSMC using its 5nm process. That means simply that more transistors can fit inside.it. The A14 Bionic will employ 15 billion transistors compared to the 8.5 billion used by the A13 Bionic; the more transistors inside a chip, the more powerful and energy-efficient it is. The new standard models will each be equipped with 4GB of memory compared to 6GB of RAM on the Pro units. The new iPhone 12 handsets should start with 128GB of storage, twice the basic amount of storage available on the basic 2019 variants.
As for the rear camera module, there is some controversy based on a leaked CAD image. While all iPhone 12 units are expected to have Wide and Ultra-wide cameras, the Pro models will add a telephoto camera with 3x zoom. The latter models should feature the LiDAR time-of-flight depth sensor first seen on the 2020 iPad tablets. The sensor will deliver enhanced AR capabilities and improved portrait photographs. The question is whether the LiDAR sensor will also be found on the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Plus. Most believe that the CAD image, made for case manufacturers, contained just enough information for those firms thus making the image incomplete.
We also expect Apple to hike battery capacities for the upcoming models. That is not only because of the 5G support but also is due to the 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate for the iPhone 12 Pro handsets. This means that those phones will refresh their displays 120 times each second. The iPhone 12 Pro Max could sport a 4400mAh battery compared to the 3969mAh capacity on the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The next-gen iPhone models might be unveiled in September, as usual, the coronavirus outbreak might force Apple to delay the release of its new handsets.
