iPhone 12 Leaks Suggest We're in for a Bunch of Juicy Features on the Display and Camera Front

By Shabana Arif on at

The iPhone 12 is still definitely on the way, despite concerns that the pandemic would put a stop to that, and now specs for the display and camera have leaked for the iPhone12 Pro model.

Apple's upcoming smartphone will be available in four models and if the latest rumours are to be believed, the iPhone 12 Pro 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch models will both sport a 120Hz ProMotion display, while the two smaller (and cheaper models) will be sticking at 60Hz. Apple has reportedly opted for dynamic variable refresh rate switching - meaning the display will switch between 120Hz and 60Hz depending on the content you're engaging in, which is a way to conserve battery life.

Speaking of batteries, the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro is said to house a 4,400mAh battery to facilitate the increase in energy-draining features so they don't have a negative impact on the smartphone's performance. We're also looking at a smaller notch and subsequently, smaller Face ID module, but it'll have a 'wider angle of use' so it can scan your face from an array of angles. So if you're reaching for it in the morning, bleary-eyed, you can potentially tilt it towards you and have your phone unlock rather than looming over the screen, front-and-centre.

Joining the features we've already heard about - including the LiDAR scanner - will be a 3x optical zoom on the rear-facing cameras, which is an upgrade from the current 2x zoom on the iPhone 11 series. It's not a game-changing upgrade, but it's an upgrade nonetheless.

As it stands, the iPhone 12 will probably launch a month later than expected, but with all of the uncertainty around coronavirus, nothing is set in stone. [EverythingApplePro]
