  New leak says iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are getting a major display upgrade Over the past few months, the 2020 iPhone rumors have all seemed to land on Apple once again releasing three new models next year, but this time with screen sizes of 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches, and 6.7 inches, respectively. But this week, a report from ETNews cites industry sources which claim that Samsung will be the sole provider of OLED displays for the 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch models, and that those displays will be thinner than ever. As ETNewsAs ETNews explains, the OLED displays in the past have had to utilize a separate film on top of the display panel for touch functionality, but the on-cell touch flexible OLED panels, which use Samsung’s Y-OCTA technology, have touch sensors built into the panel, which makes displays thinner and lowers pro

Even though Apple launched its trio of iPhone 11 models a mere four months ago in September, the rumor mill is already looking across the horizon and speculating about 2020 and the upcoming iPhone 12 (some rumors have already begun for the 2021 iPhones). Keep in mind that we don't know what the new iPhones' official names will be -- and Apple has not confirmed anything about them -- so we'll go with the iPhone 12 for now. In addition to adding 3D depth-sensing to its rear cameras and new screen sizes, it's also being speculated that Apple will belatedly include a feature that would make it competitive with its rivals: 5G connectivity.

  Galaxy A91 leaked renders show off the future of Samsung’s smartphone design Samsung leaks have been popping up so frequently lately that they have been tough to keep up with, but when there are this many products in the pipeline, leaks are inevitable. Since late November alone, we've seen purported renders of the Galaxy S11, Galaxy S11+, and Galaxy S11e, giving us an early glimpse into Samsung's vision of the future.

One of the more enduring rumors about the upcoming iPhones is that Apple may introduce new screen sizes. One of the iPhone 12s could have a 5.4-inch screen (of the current iPhones, the iPhone 11 Pro has the smallest display, which measures 5.8 inches). And the iPhone 2020 Pro Max could go as large as 6.7 inches (for reference, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5-inch display).

Latest iPhone 12 leak might’ve just revealed Apple’s 2020 flagship iPhone design

  Latest iPhone 12 leak might’ve just revealed Apple’s 2020 flagship iPhone design Rumors and leaks regarding the upgraded specifications and design changes of the 2020 flagship iPhone have been popping up with increasing regularity, but over the weekend, one of the first 3D-printed mockups made its way online. Japan-based Apple blog Mac Otakara claims that it received the mockup from industry sources and that the device features a 6.5-inch display. The credibility of the leak is even questioned by Mac Otakara, so take all of this with a grain of salt, but it certainly wouldn’t be the most preposterous iPhone leak we’ve ever seen.

All iPhones in 2020 are expected to feature OLED displays regardless of price. At a rumored 5.4 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 would be the smallest iPhone Apple has released since the 4.7-inch iPhone 8. At 6.7 inches, the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro will be Apple's largest iPhone to date .

There's also speculation that the iPhone 12's display will have a 120Hz refresh rate. Most phones refresh at 60 frames per second, or 60Hz, but other phones, like the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7 Pro , refresh at 90Hz. The gaming handset the Razer Phone 2 has a 120Hz display as well. With a higher refresh rate, a phone feels faster and smoother when scrolling through things like web pages and apps.

Apple may launch five new iPhones in 2020

With the possibility of new display sizes, rumors that Apple will expand its iPhone line have been swirling around. In December, CNET's Lexy Savvides wrote:

According to JPMorgan analyst Samik Chatterjee, Apple will release 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 them will have OLED displays.

Apple insiders predict even thinner 2020 iPhone displays that use less power

  Apple insiders predict even thinner 2020 iPhone displays that use less power The new year has barely gotten underway yet, and already the pace of rumors surrounding this year's new iPhone lineup is starting to ramp up considerably -- with a new batch of predictions from insiders concerning the display associated with the new models. According to industry sources, it seems at least some of the 2020 iPhones will sport touchscreen circuitry integrated right into the OLED panel without the need for an extra layer. That would make for a thinner display (but not necessarily a thinner overall phone size, depending on the size of the battery).

When will iPhone 12 be released ? What will it cost? We expect that the new 2H20 iPhone lines will include the high-end 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch OLED iPhone models and the low-end 6.1-inch In the meantime, hit me up in the comments and tell me what you want to see from the iPhone 12 in 2020 .

These size predictions were also backed this week by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who believes 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, presumably called the iPhone 12. Then the more expensive phones will be the other 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, respectively.

The fifth iPhone then will be a sequel to the iPhone SE , which is rumored to look more like the iPhone 8 and we could see as early as the first quarter of 2020.

iPhone 12 could usher in 5G (or not)

Apple's in no rush to launch a 5G iPhone, and it's likely you won't see one until this year -- or even as late as 2025. Apple analyst Kuo optimistically predicts the company will unveil three 5G phones in 2020. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, Apple usually isn't the first in on mobile trends, preferring instead to perfect an emerging technology before committing to it. Remember that it was behind its competitors in making phones with 3G and 4G LTE connectivity when those networks first launched.

Huge leak might’ve just revealed Samsung’s Galaxy S20 pricing and release date

  Huge leak might’ve just revealed Samsung’s Galaxy S20 pricing and release date Samsung’s new Galaxy S phones will be unveiled on February 11th, right alongside the brand new foldable handset from the Korean smartphone maker. We’re also looking at brand new names for the two devices, Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Bloom, instead of the previously expected Galaxy S11 and Galaxy Fold 2 monikers. Names aside, we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from both phone series, and now a new leak might have just revealed full pricing details and a release date for the Galaxy S20 series.

Second, Apple at one point stopped working with the leading 5G modem provider, Qualcomm, because of a dispute over Qualcomm's licensing fees. The two companies settled their litigation in April 2019 and then agreed to a multiyear 5G chip deal. This led to Apple's previous partner for 5G modems, Intel, to ultimately exit the 5G phone modem business altogether. (Apple later acquired Intel's smartphone modem unit for $1 billion.) Apple is back working with Qualcomm , but it got started too late to launch a 5G phone last year when a few of its rivals released their 5G models, like the Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 5G and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G.

When it comes to producing a proprietary 5G chip, The Information reported in May 2019 that it would take Apple years to design its own in-house 5G modem. "In interviews with prospective hires for the team, Apple has told engineers that they expect to have their own modem ready by 2025," reported the outlet, citing an anonymous source.

iPhone 12 may have 3D depth sensing in rear cameras

Since the iPhone X , newer iPhones have front-facing cameras that have 3D depth sensing. Known as Face ID, this feature scans your face for unlocking your phone and authorizing digital payments. It's been rumored that Apple may take it up a notch and introduce that same system to the rear cameras. In August, CNET's Vanessa Orellana wrote:

Galaxy S20 specs continue to leak online ahead of the phone’s unveiling

  Galaxy S20 specs continue to leak online ahead of the phone’s unveiling The phone formerly known as Galaxy S11 has appeared in several leaks today, seemingly confirming many of the previous reports about the Galaxy S10 successor. We saw leaked photos of an actual Galaxy S20+ in the wild, as well as leaked benchmarks that revealed the S20 won’t beat the latest iPhone when it comes to overall performance. On top of that, a couple of well-known insiders revealed more details about the specs of the Galaxy S20. IceIce Universe posted what appeared to be a cryptic tweet, revealing the standard configuration for a device would include 12GB of LPDDR5. To anyone following him, it should have been clear this was a reference to the Galaxy S20, which Ice then confirmed in reply to the thread.

Longtime Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo (via MacRumors and 9to5Mac) said he expects two of the 2020 iPhones models to have a new time-of-flight camera lens on the back of the phone. The setup would be similar to that of the current True Depth camera system used for Face ID on the front of the phone, except it would use a slightly different type of technology that could allow it to 3D map objects from farther away. This would significantly improve its augmented reality applications and take certain camera features like Portrait Mode to the next level.

It's unclear how many of the 2020 iPhones would be equipped with this feature, if any.
