Apple will introduce the new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro in a few months. So we decided to focus on the model with a 5.4″ display and we took into account all the leaks that were recently seen to create renderings. If the information is not misleading, this is how the new iPhone 12 5.4-inch will look live.
iPhone 12 and its design
Let’s start with design first. The biggest change will be the overall shape of the device. iPhone 12 will have flat edges in all versions. So you can forget about rounded ones. More affordable models will have less premium materials. It is supposed to be aluminum and shiny glass on the back.
On the successor to the iPhone 11, we will still find related elements that will not change. For example, this is about space for rear cameras. We expect this „module“ to be very similar or exactly the same. There will be two lenses, just like last year. The camera system itself could undergo significant improvements. However, no further details were specified.
The color palette should be very colorful. Although we do not know the exact details, several new designs have been discussed. One of them can be, for example, light blue, which we used in the renderings and we think it looks absolutely stunning.
In addition, we’ll see white, black or red for sure. A smaller question mark shines above the pure yellow, green and purple designs. However, we do not think that Apple will remove these colors from the offer. It is possible that their shades will be slightly adjusted, so they will not be the same as last year’s.
The cutout will be smaller, but don’t expect any miracles
The notch on the front will undergo a minor change. It was originally said that Apple would move the microphone over the Face ID and the front camera, freeing up space for the display. Recent leaks, however, refute these theories.
Apparently, the engineers were able to reduce the biometric sensors, which also reduced the dimensions of the cut-out. It could be about 1/7 smaller than at present. It contains a microphone and also a front camera in the same „layout“ as we are used to today.
On the smallest iPhone 12 with a 5.4 ″ display, this will not be visible, but on larger versions (especially the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 6.7 ″ display), users will experience a pleasant enlargement of the display area.
Thanks to the OLED technology, the frames on the sides, which, for example, the iPhone 11 or iPhone XR (due to the LCD panel) were too thick, will also be narrowed. In terms of design, the new model can therefore look really premium!
The iPhone 12 with a 5.4 ″ OLED display will be a very pleasant and affordable device for any user who prefers compact dimensions. Its design returns to the shapes that Apple last used in the first generation of the iPhone SE in 2016. This is great news for us and we are already looking forward to trying it out in the review.
Among other things, it will provide an Apple A14 Bionic processor, 4GB of RAM, 5G connectivity, quality cameras on the back, top-notch unlocking with Face ID and much more. The price could start at € 749.
