A lot of Apple fanboys tuned in to the much-awaited September event last week, in hopes that the Cupertino-based tech giant would finally unveil the all-new iPhone 12. Unfortunately, the iPhone followers would need to wait a little more as Apple only unboxed the new iPad Air instead, although frankly, this is somewhat rare as Apple’s September events are focused on the latest iPhone models.
That being said, there is a speculation that Apple might be saving the best for last for the remaining media events this 2020. The rumors for the past couple of weeks suggested that the iPhone 11 successor would only feature some minor upgrades, perhaps except to 5G connectivity, and the upcoming iPhone iteration would look pretty much the same.
However, the latest word from the rumor mill now hints on a surprising iPhone redesign, the first since Apple introded the iconic notch display via iPhone X.
What Will The iPhone 12 Look Like
No one is certain what will be the next look of the iPhone. Since the iPhone X made an appearance in 2017, it caused a seemingly domino effect that prompted other phone makers all over the world to adapt this notch display. As per the latest reports, 2020 could the time for Apple to introduce another groundbreaking handset design, something that even its closest competitors like Samsung and Sony could be looking into in the coming months.
Aside from the anticipated redesign for the new iPhone, it is expected that the new variants of the iPhone 12 will use OLED panels instead of the usual LCD screens, which is another first for the company. In this case, it is getting more likely that the iPhone 12 will be a bit more expensive compared to its predecessor, knowing that these special OLED displays are costly.
If the new iPad Air would be an indicator of what to expect from the iPhone 12, we can also expect Apple’s latest powerful processor chip, the A14 Bionic chipset, to be powering the upcoming iPhone unit. All three variants of the iPhone 12 are expected to be powered by this latest chip, although the top-end variant, the iPhone 12 Pro, will receive an extra microprocessing boost. This, as well as the rumored extended screen size of the iPhone 12 Pro, is said to make the device a worthy challenger in today’s most powerful gaming handsets. As for now, the performance of this device has yet to be seen, but expect that Info4Runners Review will give you the best insights once the iPhone 12 launch arrives.
