Apple's flagship of the year called the iPhone 12 series is expected to be officially unveiled at a special event on October 13 at 10 a.m. PDT. Just prior to that, a well-known, proven leaker (who publishes the leading information about a high-profile, unannounced product) posted information on all four models.
The person behind the rumor, "Kang," has a 97.8 percent accuracy rate per unannounced Apple product, according to the website AppleTrack. Even recently, he has accurately predicted the price of the iPhone SE (2020), the hand-washing feature of the Apple Watch, the features and price of the fourth-generation iPad Air 4, and several others from June's WWDC 20 to a special event in September.
And now, the post was reposted on Twitter by Ice universe, also an accomplished leaker, adding even more credibility to the story.
The specs of each model, as well as the pre-order and release dates for each model, posted by Kang on Chinese social network Weibo, are as follows
As for the release date, this is in line with supply chain information that says "two 6.1-inch models will be available first, with the 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch models coming later". And as for the price projections, the two entry-level models are $50 more expensive than the recent leak, and the Pro model is in line with that.
What's more, all four iPhone 12 models will have OLED Super Retina XDR displays (the same name as the display on the iPhone 11 Pro series) and a new hardened "Ceramic Shield" glass screen, and all are capable of shooting Dolby Vision video, offering higher dynamic range.
And one of the most notable aspects of the iPhone 12 series is support for 5G. While this will be available on all models, only the U.S. models will reportedly support the faster mmWave 5G band. Earlier in September, it was rumored that only the iPhone 12 Pro Max would have mmWave support, and only for the U.S., South Korea, and Japan, but the mystery seems to be deepening again.
Other noteworthy features include the iPhone 12 series' Smart Data Mode, which automatically switches between 4G and 5G based on bandwidth, and improvements to photography features such as Deep Fusion and Night Mode, which were introduced in the iPhone 11, as well as a 47% larger image sensor on the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a special "Expansive" super wide-angle capability.
We've already seen a lot of information about the iPhone 12 series, but we'll have to wait until the day of the event to find out more.
