Leak: Only iPhone 12 Pro Max Will Get LiDAR Sensor And 120Hz Refresh Rate

| 2 months ago


As we get closer to October, more iPhone 12 leaks are unexpectedly released. Most consumers would assume there shouldn't be any new features that the iPhone 12 series could have.

Regardless of our expectations, the leaks and rumors are all speculated information based on previous iPhone models and the latest iPhone 12 photos.

Today's leak could clarify Apple's focus for the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Let's uncover the details in the next section.

What We Know So Far About the iPhone 12s

Details about the iPhone 12 series have been speculated all summer. Within the last couple of weeks, the smallest iPhone 12 size at 5.4-inch is confirmed to be nicknamed the 'iPhone 12 mini.'

One of many reliable leakers @duanrui1205 confirmed this detail on Twitter last week when sharing three iPhone 12 silicone case stickers. It reveals three iPhone 12 sizes: iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12/12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

In the photo, you will see the following confirmed iPhone 12 sizes:

  • 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini Silicone Case Black
  • 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Silicone Case Black
  • 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro Silicone Case Black
  • 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max Silicone Case Black

At the moment, the iPhone 12 release date continues to be predicted for October 13. Pre-sales expected to begin on October 16 and launched to Apple stores on October 23.

The alarming detail shared today is that the iPhone 12 Pro Max could be more superior than the iPhone 12 Pro, unlike the iPhone 11 Pros.

iPhone 12 Pro Max is the Best of the Entire Series?

For its predecessor, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max used the same technology and features with a size difference.

This time, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max could be significantly different as rumors share that only the iPhone 12 Pro Max will have the advanced LiDAR Scanner and 120Hz panel display.

By giving the iPhone 12 Pro Max the exclusive new smartphone features in addition to the 5G connectivity could make the iPhone 12 Pro Max a flagship iPhone.

All iPhone 12 models are expected to sport the A14 Bionic chipset, with the exception of the iPhone 12 mini rumored to use a lower model, B14 chip.

As noted in the previous section, the iPhone 12s are expected to be launched in mid-October. We should expect Apple's announcement for a second virtual event to introduce the iPhone 12s, AirTags, AirPods Studio, and (possibly) the MacBooks with Apple Silicon.

If not all of these products are discussed in the second virtual Apple event, there could be a third event in November 2020.
