THE IPHONE 12

What do we know? Apple has once again decided to launch another one of their alluring new phones. This time it is called the IPhone 12. It is scheduled to be launched in Autumn of 2020 although there might be a few delays which might push it back a month or two. In this blog we will be discussing why you should spend your money on this all new iPhone 12 and why you need to pre-order it. We will start off by telling you a bit of new features that come with this all new phone. So , let’s begin.

Release Date:

The next batch of iPhone is scheduled for announcement in autumn 2020. But, it may not be in Apple’s traditional September slot. Reports suggest that production of the iPhone 12 faces delays of at least a month, which would push it into October or even beyond that. There’s some dispute about whether this will merely affect the shipping date or if it will actually, and unprecedentedly, push back the date of the announcement. Broadcom for one has hinted that the launch will be pushed back from the third to the fourth quarter of the year. But that’s not the worst part. Sources intimate with the Apple report that this had been pre – planned by the company. This could easily push the release date into 2021.The main reason for this delay is the COVID-19 pandemic. It severely affected Apple’s Asian supply chain, and more importantly the head office is located in one of the hardest hit areas of the country. The final date for the release has not been announced yet and we still await the decision from Apple.

Features :

This new iphone is going to give its users a time of their life with the features it is offering. They have been discussed below

  • 5G Network:

This iphone comes with the latest 5G support. Although this is one of the best features out there and the demand of the time but Apple seems to lack behind in this department. The reason is the supply of modems . Apple had a partnership with Qualcomm but that didn’t seem to work out. Later Apple partnered with Intel , but Intel had also fallen out of the 5G race and also sold most of its modems to Apple. Apple can also launch their own modems but that too doesn’t seem possible before 2021. . Qualcomm and Apple have now been coming to legal terms and it looks like we may see another apple – Qualcomm partnership in this one too.

Design Change:

We have now started to get a clearer picture of what this iphone will look like. This is because numerous leaks and rumors all come down to a single point. One sad thing is that the fold able iPhone prototype will not be part of Apple’s release this year and thus it has been moved forward to 2021 or even beyond that. Moreover a leaker namely Max Weinbach has claimed to have obtained the   CAD schematics for the new iPhone 12 max. Weinbach stresses that the schematics are not complete – he says “basically display and body are correct but the camera setup is wrong as a security measure” – and cynics might view this as an attempt to cover himself in case it’s wrong.

So what will the new iPhones look like? All four iPhone 12 models are expected to bring back the flat metal-edge design of the iPhone 5, according to Bloomberg. This design change will also bring the iPhone lineup closer to the iPad Pro 2020.

Cameras:

A report in Digitimes confirms that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will have two rear cameras, and the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will have three rear cameras plus a new LiDAR sensor.

Given that the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max featured triple-lens rear cameras for the first time in Apple’s hardware, we expect that to continue for the 2020 versions of the Pro iPhone. According to a separate report, the iPhone 12 will feature a new 7-part lens for the main camera, which would be an upgrade from the 6-part lens on the iPhone 11 series.

The extra lens should result in better photo quality and reduce distortion. It’s also widely expected that the new iPhone 12 will add a new lens — a LiDAR time-of-flight sensor. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects such an addition to at least two iPhone 12 models, most likely the Pro versions. Subsequent reports on iPhone 12 specs have backed that claim, though a series of CAD schematics leaked by YouTuber EverythingApplePro depicts only the Max variant with the LiDAR sensor, so there’s a chance it ends up restricted to that model after all.

Performance:

It’s a foregone conclusion the iPhone 12 line will be powered by Apple’s next-generation A-series chip. What we don’t know quite yet is how powerful that silicon will be, though a leaked Geekbench 5 score card suggests the upcoming range of iPhones will wipe the floor with competing Android flagships. Even though Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset has somewhat closed the gap to Apple’s current A13 Bionic CPU, the rumored 5-nanometer A14 Bionic could once again blow Cupertino’s lead wide open. According to the leaked screenshot, the iPhone 12 could reach a peak multi-core score of 4,612 points. If true, that would be roughly 1,500 points higher than Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra.

The catch, of course, is that leaked benchmarks are quite easy to fake. So while these purported numbers are very exciting, we recommend you wait for further leaks to corroborate these results before buying the hype.

We haven’t heard much about battery life for the iPhone 12, but there is a report claiming Apple, Samsung, Oppo and other manufacturers will very soon start making chargers that use new gallium nitride technology that cuts the size of power adapters while keeping the same wattage. That means that the iPhone 12 could deliver 65 watts of power in a compact charger instead of the huge brick that comes with the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Battery Life and Charging:

One detail concerning battery and charging as it relates to the iPhone 12 will surely disappoint most buyers, no matter how you slice it. Multiple rumors — one of which comes courtesy of analyst Ming-Chi Kuo — suggest Apple will forgo including a charging adapter with any iPhone 12 model. Not even a conventional, slow 5-watt charger.As it turns out, Apple is developing a 20-watt brick to replace the company’s existing 18-watt solution, but it won’t actually ship with any of their new phones. That means buyers will have to shell out cash for a charger if they don’t already have one that is compatible with an iPhone. The current price of an 18-watt first-party Apple charger and Lightning-to-USB-C cable is $48 together. The silver lining to this decision is that at least it should diminish needless waste, as many customers likely already have a charger available to them, and shipping another with every phone is damaging to the environment.

However, it’s reasonable to expect a charger if you’re already spending upwards of four digits on a handset, and so we would have at least hoped Apple would include that 20-watt brick with the Pro models, or give customers the option to add one in for a reduced cost. We don’t know exactly how big the batteries inside the four iPhone 12 models will be, but we’ve heard they will at least be larger than those inside previous models, thanks to a leak from a tipster on Twitter. That’s good news, because 5G connectivity, and support for millimeter-wave networks in particular, will likely consume much more power than the LTE on existing iPhones. And that’s not even factoring in the added drain of a 120Hz display for the Pro variants.

To conclude this we can say that the iphone 12 that is still to be released into the open market offers some exciting new features. Also it will give the users a time of their lives. So , we hope you enjoyed reading this blog . Until next time , Taimour from UAE electronics signs off. Have a great day!
