Perhaps because this year's flagship iPhone 12 (tentative) series is expected to go into mass production in July, dummy models based on leaked schematics have begun to circulate in online marketplaces and other places.
And now, a person got a dummy that is said to be a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, provided some photos comparing its size to the original iPhone SE and iPhone 7.
According to rumors, the iPhone 12 series will come in three screen sizes, 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.7-inch. The entry-level model is 5.4-inch / 6.1-inch and the Pro model is 6.1-inch / 6.7-inch (Four models in total). This means that the 5.4-inch ranks as the "smallest iPhone 12 model".
MacRumors reader iZac, from the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 dummy model, expecting an alternative size to the original iPhone SE that fits in the palm of your hand. He said of the device, "From handling it I can say it does feel like a bit more of a stretch than the SE, which just nestles very comfortably in my hand. BUT, although it’s nearer to the 7, I will note that it feels a lot more manageable because the square profile and flat side lets you actually grip the device."
iZac measured that the rumored 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is about 6mm wider than the original iPhone SE and about 3 mm narrower than the iPhone 7. It was also about 1 mm thicker than the SE. The iPhone SE (2nd generation) is almost the same size as the iPhone 7, which makes the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 is narrower than the new SE.
The iPhone SE (second generation), released in April, had a screen size of 4.7 inches, down from the previous generation's 4 Some people regretted the loss of its lovable compactness. The dummy, allegedly a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, is considerably larger than the original SE in screen size, but the thinner bezel seems to keep the size of the device down. On the other hand, the straight, flat design seems to increase the sense of grip.
If this dummy model is to be believed, it may be popular as a successor to the original iPhone SE as a "device that fits in the palm of your hand," despite the size difference
