The forthcoming iPhone models have already been the subject of many rumors and leaks, but Jon Prosser, who was previously responsible for some of those leaks, has shared some new details about the upcoming iPhone 12 Pro. The information comes from a source with an iPhone 12 Pro Max Production Validation Test (PVT) unit.
According to Jon Prosser, the True Depth sensors used for Face ID the iPhone 12 Pro will keep the same size, so the notch is the same size. However, thanks to the slightly larger screen, which now has also smaller bezels, it may appear smaller. However, face identification is said to have notable improvements, and it should work from more angles, including when lying flat on a table. The report also reiterates that the device’s sides are flat, although the glass will have a slight curve.
As for the camera features, they include a LiDAR sensor that can help with autofocus and subject detection, like the one on the latest iPad Pro. There is also an enhanced night mode for photos, new options for video recording, including 4K at 120 frames per second and 4K slow-motion video at 240 frames per second and more. The camera module in the iPhone 12 Pro is also said to be 10 percent larger compared to iPhone 11 Pro.
Previously, Luca Maestri, Chief Financial Officer for Apple, confirmed this year via Axios that the new iPhone series will be delayed by a few weeks, which means the 2020 iPhone models will miss their target release in September, which has traditionally been Apple’s smartphone launch window.
Lastly, according to Prosser, Looking at PVT units so close to what the usual product launch window would be, it also indicates that mass production for these models has yet to commence.
