iPhone 12 Leak Roundup Video Details Smaller Notch and LiDAR Scanner
YouTube Channel EverythingApplePro has published an extensive look at the major iPhone 12 leaks as well as a handful of anticipated 2020 Apple devices.
Published yesterday, EverythingApplePro’s video dubbed ‘iPhone 12 Smaller Notch CONFIRMED! Massive Leaks’ catalogued the most recent leaks. According to multiple sources, Apple’s next flagship iPhone will indeed have a smaller notch.
This video begins by refreshing the leaked news from leaker Jon Prosser. Over this past weekend, Prosser released a photo detailing the spec design of the iPhone 12. In collaboration with Concept Creator, EverythingApplePro showed visuals of what that could look like through a series of renders. The video shows off an accurate depiction of Prosser’s leak including the sensor placement, and notch itself. As the video describes, Apple may be shrinking the bezels by “about .5-.6mm”. Face ID is also said to be more advanced this time around.
EverythingApplePro’s video continues to describe the camera lens placement on the rear side of the iPhone 12. Previous leaks have indicated that the ‘Pro’ models of the iPhone 12 will include a LiDAR Scanner. Per the video, the scanner itself may end up sitting on the top or bottom right of the four-lens array.
Concluding the video, EverythingApplePro details a variety of leaks pointing to new Apple devices that are apparently set to launch in conjunction with the iPhone 12 this year, and a few that may launch in 2021. One that many users may be eager for is the Apple AirPower wireless charger. It’s still up in the air when Apple’s in-house wireless charging system will be available for consumer use, but signs are pointing to a release as early as later this year.
Of course, the other long-awaited Apple device is the wireless tracking device, the AirTag. Described as a small puck, the AirTag appears to be powered by CR 2032 batteries. Apple seems to also be looking to release small leather cases for the AirTags to users to clip them onto their keyrings or other objects.
Finally, there is also word that Apple is developing a smaller model of the HomePod. It’s described as being cheaper and half the size of the existing model. It is also said that Apple is refining Siri’s capabilities and adding additional music streaming options.
