New leak says iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are getting a major display upgrade

  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.

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.

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).

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).

Apple 's iPhone 12 is expected to come in four versions when it's presumably released next September. The biggest upgrade coming in 2020 will likely be the introduction of 5G network support. Such an addition could be critical to driving upgrades at a time when smartphone owners are holding

2020 iPhone : New rumors may reveal what Apple has in mind for the 2020 iPhone line, reports MacRumors. This rumor comes from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a solid track record when it comes to leaking AAPL ’s plans. He claims that the company will release three smartphones next year.

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.

iPhone 12 leak says one of Apple’s best features is getting even better

  iPhone 12 leak says one of Apple’s best features is getting even better There is plenty we don't know about the next iPhone, but the puzzle pieces are beginning to come together as leaks continue to make their way online. Speaking of, MacRumors detailed a report from Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis, Thomas O'Malley, and Baylie Harris on Thursday which claims that the iPhone 12 models will feature a "refreshed" front-facing TrueDepth camera system that could lead to improved Face ID. No further details were provided, but as this year is expected to be a significant leap forward for Apple’s smartphone line, it would make sense for the device’s tentpole security system to receive an upgrade too.

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:

  iPhone 12 leak says one of Apple’s best features is getting even better She caused a stir Monday when she emerged as a potential juror, telling the judge she had met Weinstein but could be impartial.

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.

CNET's Vanessa Hand Orellana and Lexy Savvides contributed to this report.

Apple’s first new iPhone of 2020 could have a massive surprise .
Apple is expected to unveil a brand new iPhone model next month, the handset many of you have been asking for. Often referred to as the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2, it'll be an updated iPhone 8 that will sport both a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and Apple’s powerful A13 chip found inside the iPhone 11 series. Leaks have been referring to this phone as iPhone SE 2 and iPhone 9, and both of those names make some sense. This iPhone 8-like device will be Apple’s most affordable handset since the iPhone SE, and it’ll have the same design as the iPhone 8.
