A lot of mysteries surround Apple’s next iteration of its flagship smartphone. There are many rumors and speculations about the new appearance and features of the 2020 iPhone version, and even the actual name or moniker of the upcoming device is still up in the air. However, all rumors suggest that the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 12, plain and simple, directly following the footsteps of 2019’s iPhone 11.
The question is, how will the iPhone 12 be any different from the iPhone 11 and all other iPhone versions in the past few years? It appears that Apple has already made the iPhone design sophisticated enough that there will be no need for major upgrades or revisions. However, it is expected that the iPhone 12 will be the first from Apple handsets to boast 5G connectivity, among others.
Faster Network Connection Guaranteed With Upcoming iPhone 12
As for now, the only thing confirmed is Apple holding a special event in September 15th, which is most likely to unveil the all-new iPhone. With regards to the iPhone 12’s features, nothing is set in stone just yet. However, almost all reports from the past few months lead to Apple releasing its very first 5G-compatible iPhones. Every year, Apple introduces at least three variants of its latest iPhone. This year, it is expected that all iPhone 12 variants will have 5G connectivity.
Another interesting feature of the upcoming iPhone 12 is its all-OLED display. For the longest time, Apple has refused to incorporate OLED panel to its devices, but this year will be the exception. From the usual LCD panels, the iPhone 12 models this year will feature OLED screens that are similar with Samsung’s OLED technology.
The iPhone 12 is also rumored to sport an all-new A12 processing chip that will make new advanced tasks possible, most especially augmented reality (AR) functionalities. This will also make more advanced face and object recognition features possible.
Given all these info, we can only expect that the upcoming iPhone 12 devices will be much more expensive than the previous iPhone model. For one, the upgrade to OLED displays will cause additional cost for sure. However, it is not expected that the 5G support will contribute to the iPhone 12’s expensive tag price. Just like before, the brand new iPhone might be much more expensive than a kidney stone remedy from the hospital.
